Have the power to search billions of images with Lightbox all within ZBrush’s interface.

    I thought it was a little confusing on opening up the spotlight in Zbrush 4R2. At first the spotlight .zsl seems to be missing. You have to add a texture first by double clicking then go to the Texture palette and click Add To Spotlight. Then you should be able to open up the spotlight. Its a great tool so I hope no one else encounters the problem.
