ZAppLink

ZAppLink is a free plug-in for ZBrush available from Pixologic. ZApplink allows you to seamlessly integrate ZBrush’s painting tools with Photoshop. This program will allow you to use all your favorite Photoshop brushes and filters in conjunction with ZBrush. ZAppLink must be downloaded and installed. Download ZAppLink from the Download Center at i0509.tif. In the section called ZAppLink Properties (Figure 5-45), click the ZAppLink Properties to open this menu; then click the name to unroll the menu and access the options.

The ZAppLink Properties window contains the options for storing views of your model. Views allow you to store a model’s position on canvas so you can use layers in Photoshop. We’ll cover views later in this section. For now let’s look at ZAppLink as a connection to Photoshop. Load the character model from the previous section. Draw the Stingerhead on the canvas and enter Edit mode. Orient so the horns are visible from the top, as shown in Figure 5-46. Mask the horn area and invert so the horns are now unmasked. Load ZAppLink by clicking the ZAppLink button under the Document menu. Photoshop will now open (or the program you have on your system that opens PSD files).
