Pixologic, Inc., maker of the Award-Winning ZBrush recently announced the latest release of the ZBrush 4 Trial version for Windows and Mac OS X ZBrush is a 2D/3D digital sculpting application for artists today and is used extensively in the film, game, concept design, toy and collectible industries as well as scientific illustration.
Commenting on the release of the ZBrush 4 Trial, Jimmy Golding, Director of Marketing at Pixologic said:
The ZBrush 4 Trial is also accompanied by the recently launched training resource: the Getting Started with ZBrush guide a 52 page digital document packed full of useful steps to walk new and existing users through ZBrush's concepts, techniques and key features to help them get up and running with ZBrush in no time. Pixologic has achieved another breakthrough with the release of ZBrush 4.
It sets a new standard for digital art software, changing the way artists create by introducing a brand new suite of sculpting features and expanding on the directions established by the innovations of the existing ZBrush toolset. Artists can explore new ways to create sculpture ready meshes with Shadow Box, refine hard surface edges with the new Clip Brushes and manage complex multi-part models with new SubTool features. With the new Project All features, ZBrush 4 lets you combine multiple SubTools into one and use the new MatchMaker Brush to fit parts perfectly together - the possibilities are endless.
With Version 4, ZBrush users can combine hard surface and organic modeling tools or
techniques to create fantastic creatures, superheroes, vehicles, environments and more! With the new Spotlight feature, it becomes even easier to texture and deform any sculpt in edit mode.
Spotlight will also allow any or all textures to be manipulated in the ZBrush workspace. Spotlight will adjust the texture, scale, hue, color change, tiling in vertical or horizontal, nudge and much more.
Now ZBrush 4 includes an animation, 'art in motion' Timeline, letting artists to create moving turntables for their demo reel or presentations to their art director. They have the power to animate poses, blend shapes, store camera positions, sync animation to music and import audio - all within ZBrush.
Using the Best Preview Render (BPR), ZBrush 4 can now render amazing still image(s) or animated turntable(s) using additional features such as 3D Shadows, Ambient Occlusion (AO), Subsurface Scattering (SSS), Multiple SubTool Transparency and 3D Fibers.
