Pixologic has released ZBrush 4R2 with significant new sculpting features, as well as major enhancements within the Best Preview Render (BPR) system.
The major updates in ZBrush 4R2 include:
ZBrush 4R2 revolutionizes digital modeling and unleashes your creative power by delivering a topological-free sculpting process with new tools like DynaMesh. When sculpting with traditional techniques, polygons become stretched and difficult to work with. Now with a quick gesture, ZBrush will instantly generate a new sculpting-friendly model with uniform polygon distribution. This makes it possible for you to focus only on the visual aspects of your model, without worrying about its underlying geometry.
ZBrush 4R2 delivers a powerful set of new tools, functions and features. These include a new curve mode that can be used with any stroke type, a clay polish topology modifier and several new sculpting brush presets. When combined with the existing ZBrush features, these will empower your creative juices like never before.
Introduced in ZBrush 4.0, the Best Preview Render has now seen drastic enhancements. ZBrush 4R2 brings you the ability to integrate your models within a 360° environment and adjust scene lights using the new LightCap designer.
The enhancements don’t stop there! For example, all materials have seen the addition of a wax effect. You also now have the ability to tweak your final render with the new BPR filters, taking your final image to the next level.
ZBrush 4R2 is a free upgrade to all registered ZBrush users.
