Change Zbrush start-up material

I love the developers over at Pixologic, but I strongly disagree with their taste for start-up matcaps. So I’ve been looking for a way to change the startup material to a custom matcap.

Add this little piece of code to your ‘ZScripts/DefaultZScript.txt’ document in your Zbrush folder.

[If,1,
[IPress,Material: YOUR_MATERIAL]
]

For example, I love Jesse Sandifer’s matcaps, so I set my default one to ‘z7′

[IPress,Material: z7]
