Working in ZBrush with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

Working in ZBrush with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

Solomon Jagwe states that there is a relatively cheap alternative when you can afford a Wacom tablet.

Can’t afford a pricey Wacom tablet? It appears that there might be a relatively cheap alternative that can get you interested. Solomon Jagwe tested ZBrush on his iPad Pro, using an Apple Pencil. The thing is that the artist states that the results are awesome. 

Super Excited! I am finally able to use Zbrush on my iPad Pro, and sculpt with my Apple Pencil ~ this is a great alternative to those who can’t afford the high end Wacom tablets. The responsiveness is awesome. I tested both on my PC and a MAC, and in both cases Zbrush worked just fine. On the MAC there was some slight lag. Overall the experience has been great.

    @Django How do you know it is better then the iPad Pro + Apple Pencil? do you own both, to compare? If not, hussssssshh!

    With the iPad you don't have to look up to a second screen, because you are painting on top of it!

    Using a tablet and look up to a second screen is crap!

    Better to just use Procreate on the iPad instead of trying to rig everything. Adobe apps work well, too, and support pressure sensitivity. Oh, and to the guy who says "Can’t believe it’s taken this long for Apple to catch up", note that Apple is rarely first in anything, but they test the market to see what it will bear, then make an effort to perfect it rather than copy it.

    Got a surface pro 4 instead. No additional apps needed...works like a dream. Can't believe it's taken this long for Apple to catch up.

    Astropad works really well.

    What the guy in the video does not explain very well is that he's using an app called Duet for his ipad, and in my experience the app is pretty bad in terms of quality. Lots of disconnections, and the video output is blurry/poor. Don't worry, the duet guys have you covered though- they have a mode that allegedly doesn't produce blurry output, you just have to pay a subscription fee to enable it (on top of the $20 you already paid for the app). Oh, you want pressure sensitivity too? Better get on that subscription plan.

    Personally I'm waiting for something better to come along. If the Astropad guys ever port to windows that'd be worth a subscription fee, but not this app.
