ZBrush to Houdini Vector Displacement Workflow? Having trouble getting 7mil poly details onto 100k poly

Recommended Posts

Workflow for this sample mesh is as follows:

  • Create dynamesh, subdivide to 2 mil points
  • Apply variety of alphas to mesh
  • ZRemesh to 8k poly, subdivide to 7 mil, project details
  • Use UV Master
  • Create vector displacement with attached settings, base mesh is around 100k

What am I missing here? Was able to get blackpixel's example working just fine: https://www.sidefx.com/forum/topic/46764/#post-211000 [sidefx.com]

Should I try Mudbox?
