In this training video we are going to look at the new multiresolution mesh sculpting that becomes available thanks to Pixar subdivision surfaces. Different than painting displacements or normal maps, we are going to experience sculpting on real polygons, at different levels of detail, reaching nearly 6 million polys. We are going to see how and why we can begin to create things that we only dreamed were possible in the old days of polygon modeling. Get ready for a whole new level of detail work in modo sculpting!
