I ahve a problem with the texturing xyz workflow. I wanted to try their displacement map, but I encountered an issue when in zbrush. I am projecting the displacement map in Painter and then export the result and separate the 3 channels. In zbrush when I enable the displacement I see the result on the left, but when I apply the displacement the mesh inflates and I end up wiht the result on the right. This happen for all channels.

Has anyone ever faced this issue? Do anyone know how to solve this?

    Are you applying displacement to an already complete mesh, thereby displacing an already finished form?

    Yes, I am displacing and already finished mesh. I am applying the displacement on subD level 7 and I get the result on the right. I noticed that the preview match the result only if I click on the mode button in the displacement tab. I don't know if I am doing something wrong, or there's a bug in zbrush.

    Currently my solution is storing a morph target, applying the displacement stronger than it need to be, go back to subdivision 6, switch the morph target and go back to level 7. I also record this on a layer to adjust the strength in the end.

    from my memory of zbrush, there is a difference between 'applyiing' a dsiplacement map and displaying  - jsut knock the strength down( or use a layer/morph like you mentioned)
