    1. Minute 3 : What happened with the good, old fashion scroll ? Made for tablets ? Alright, my tablet has something similar to a scroll…
      I really hate the navigation on this software, very counter intuitive.

    2. Wow. This was incredibly informative and descriptive! I've wanted to get a grasp on more complex sculpting softwares such as zbrush and this really set the stage for me! Thank you!

    3. Fantastic info. I would love to know how you are moving around so much using a tablet. I guess you have like a kamvas as 20-24 with lots of push buttons. I have a kamvas13 and wondering how to go around moving around and using shortcuts with limited buttons.

    4. thank you! I was new to this, and my guide taught me without most explanation, and without most function, just the really basic one (which is only brush) . With this, I am more comfortable is navigating around zbrush now.
