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:
- Start by going to the
Colormenu and changing the main swatch to the colour you want your background to be. In my case, something about rgb(42, 42, 42).
- Now go to the
Documentmenu and click on
Backto set the colour, then move the
Rangeslider all the way down to 0 to remove the gradient.
- Once you’re happy with your background, click on
Store Configunder the
Preferencesto make ZBrush remember your changes once you’ve quit the app.
There you have it, happy modelling.
