Crazyfool: The face is coming out great! A really angry face!

Tried to pose my model yesterday, but when I use Transpose Master my Zbrush always crashes. I am able to pose the model, it's when I click the button pose to subtools that my Zbrush always crashes. I also tried the traditionnal way, but when I go back in my higher subdivision levels there are always some strange artefacts that appears. Anyone knows the cause of this?
Hey guys incredible works,

Hey Dr. Mighty,
Looking great man, congratulations

And about transpose master, i aways have the same problem i got to say,

What i use to pose multiple subtools without transpose master is,

1-If your sistem can hold, merge them and then traspose

2-If not, you have the option of letting the transpose line and the view in the same exact place so you can do the same change to all your subtools,
and if possible, use the shift key for transposing and for the view is really easy to do,
So mask it, then place the trasnpose line and the view and do the changes in one subtool and then using the exact same view and tranpose line change the other, you will be able to place them correctly,

BTW- you must do one change at a time, for all subtools and only then
move to other trasnpose move, so you don't loose the placements,

If i make sense!

Cheers
Fernando

I tried merging my subtools yesterday, the inconvenient is that I lose all my lower subdivisions level, which make it hard later to change things.
And I also tried transposing my model with the normal transpose, it's just that to do it efficiently I have to go to lower subdivisions level, but when I return to my highest level, artefacts appears, maybe I can post a picture of that.
Ultimately maybe I can try with a previous version of my snowman which have less polys but no fur, I would have to redo the fur, but I prefer that than a final model with no pose.
But your technique for posing multiple subtools witouth Transpose Master seems very good, I'll keep it in mind, thanks again for coming to my help Fernando!

Hey Crazyfool, looks killer man, love it

Hey Mighty,
It's easy for you to have the subdivisions in the merged tool,

1-merge them Low-export as OBJ
2- merge them Hign-export as OBJ
3-open a ZSphere-import the Low
4-subdivide it the exact number as the high
5-import the high

if it doesn't work you

1-load the Low merged
2-append the high merged
3-subdivide the low the exact number of divisions of the high
4- use the "Project All" to project the High mesh to the low subdivided,

And you are good to go

BTW-If you have problems in the mesh due to projection you can use
intermediate subdivision to project step by step

Cheers Bro

Fernando

Belal Saeed : Great entry Belal, I love your work saw it on Zbrush. Loving the uniqueness in the model.

Grapix: Really enjoy your entry, looks like a General or the head of the clan of genius Abominable Snowman

Very nice concept you have! I liked the look on his face in the update before this one a bit more, but it is still very cool indeed.

Let see how this turns out after a couple of more hours

Watch out for the jaggedness around his toes... Seems to be going on a couple of other places as well..

Nice expression though . Keep on going!

tksdevil: I am curious to see what kind of Yeti will come out from that basemesh!

Hurray! I was finally able to pose my mesh without Zbrush crashing! I re-tried doing it the traditional way today and it seems my computer was more cooperative then yesterday :P
Anyway I tought I would give you a preview of his pose, of course it's not finished, still have to cover the hands/feet joints with the fur and pose the fingers and toes.
There is a strange glitch/artefact on my hand, and it don't want to go when I try to smooth it, does anyone got a good way to get rid of those? (you can see it in my 2nd attachment)
