A tool that helps you write schema.org markup

Hans Polak has created a tool  for web designers to facilitate the creation of valid HTML5 schema.org  semantic schema’s. Using schema.org semantics to describe content allows search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex) to comprehend the content of web pages. Google, for example, can use these semantics to present search results with rich snippets (contextually better layouts). If you’ve ever […]

I just learned that there’s an fabulously detailed female anatomy model that comes out-of-the-box with ZBrush. I never took much notice of the tool because it’s thumbnail in the tool palette is just a skeleton, but as it turns out, it’s really much more. In ZBrush, press , to open the Lightbox.

Mask an area on the model… In the subtool palette, under Extract, set the thickness and options. Click Extract button, then Accept. A new subtool is generated from the extracted mask… It’s usually a good idea to use ZRemesher on the new subtool afterwards. […]

To create a new polygroup of any masked area, press CTRL + W. Any masked area will be turned into a new polygroup. Take the following masked object, for example. Pressing SHIFT + F puts us in polyframe mode and we can see only one color (one polygroup) with the darker masked area still represented. […]

My study notes on use of the ZBrush SliceCurve brush… The SliceCurve brush allows you to slice to define new polygroups by drawing a line with bezier curves. The SliceCurve brush, once selected, is enabled as the active selection tool when you press CTRL + SHIFT. When working with this brush, we’re creating polygroups. So, to […]
