I find the default background used in ZBrush distracting more than anything and much prefer a solid mid-grey one. If you’re planning on doing screen recordings, you’ll definitely want to change the default too to avoid major banding. Here’s how to go about doing so:
1) Start by going to the
Color menu and changing the main swatch to the colour you want your background to be. In my case, something about rgb(42, 42, 42).
2) Now go to the
Document menu and click on
Back to set the colour, then move the
Range slider all the way down to 0 to remove the gradient.
3) Once you’re happy with your background, click on
Store Config under the
Config tab in
Preferences to make ZBrush remember your changes once you’ve quit the app.
There you have it, happy modelling.
