MatCap™ technique from ZBrush

about

What if you could create a surface material and lighting environment simply by painting an object so that it looks like you want it to look? What if you could create that surface material by sampling points from an existing image that already features the material and lighting environment you want?

  • No tedious tweaking of numerical material values.
  • No need to set up any lights.

For a great many (probably the majority) materials and lighting environments, this is exactly what MatCap™, a ZBrush proprietary feature, allows you to do.

Nice! Where are those sphere maps from?

misak 05/04/2013 - 08:47

I found this lightmaps in google.
You can make some in C4d, Max and other 3d soft.

Also you can use ZBrush. I found many presets for it.
One of them you can found in comments.
But I could not get the desired result in ZBrush

But are they copyrighted? Couldn't find them.

I love this shader!
Also you can create your custom matcap texture realtime and achieve some kind of lighting:

Tried this in EX9 and looks amazing!!
Wanna try this out in DX11, How do i apply Binormals and Tangents to vertex noise applied geometry?

Takuma 09/09/2018 - 13:36

Not sure if this is the right way, but kinda worked with DX11.
But no luck with vertex noise.
