Pixologic Releases ZBrush 4R6 for Windows and Mac
ZBrush 4R6 continues to improve and enhance ZBrush functionality by giving artists access to a rich tool set of new features designed to excite their creativity and boost productivity.
Central to Release 6 is ZRemesher: an evolution of ZBrush's automatic retopology tool. It analyzes the curves in a mesh to produce a very natural polygon flow. Yet it also achieves these better results in significantly less time. Of course, when an artist wants more control ZRemesher provides features such as local density management and curve flow orientation. Furthermore, a new and innovative feature of ZRemesher is its ability to perform local retopology to a specific part of the mesh while keeping all border vertex points welded to the rest of the model.
The response from the artist community since ZRemesher was released has been overwhelming, with many saying that they can now do in minutes what used to take days.
ZBrush 4R6 also introduces a number of other enhancements. New brushes further extend the sculpting toolkit, including the new Trim Curve, Bridge Curve and Creasing brushes. DynaMesh -- ZBrush's revolutionary concepting tool -- now preserves PolyGroups. This is perfect for sculpting hard surfaces! And speaking of hard surfaces, the Panel Loops feature has been expanded with two new options to deliver even more flexibility.
ZBrush 4R6 is a free upgrade for existing registered users.
