Deformers


ZBrush Creator Pixolator using Project Primitive

In ZBrush 4R8 we introduced the Gizmo 3D which included easy access to and new controls for deformers. These eight functions allowed you to interactively bend, stretch, flatten, twist, slice, taper and much more. Some of the new deformers include Scale, Skew, Inflate, Remesh By ZRemesher, Remesh By LIVE Boolean, Remesh By Dynamesh, Smooth, Offset and Project Primitive.

The Gizmo 3D Deformers give you a sleek workflow that allows for easy switching from one deformer to another.

One unique deformer, Project Primitive, gives the capability to use multiple primitives to reshape a mesh, cut into a surface, build up from another mesh and so much more. Not only does Project Primitive offer a new, unique way to blend multiple pieces of geometry together it also empowers you to take something as simple as a sphere and turn it into a rocket ship, automobile, plane, human bust and much more.

With ZBrush 2018 we have expand this collection of deformers to a grand total of 27. Each deformer has a unique feature set to allow quick shape alterations that would not be possible through brush strokes.
