Zbrush 4R7 Released

Zbrush 4R7 Now Available from Motion Media

What’s New in Zbrush 4R7?

Here is an overview of the main additions:

  • ZModeler: With ZBrush 4R7 comes the ZModeler brush. This smart polygonal modeling system is designed to simplify your creation process. Quickly and dynamically create new shapes, doing so more easily than ever before possible: fuse polygons, delete full blocks of geometry, connect parts with advanced paths, and repeat your actions with a single click!With the ZModeler brush, ZBrush takes a quantum leap beyond the organics that it is already relied upon for. You can refine the shape of your model in real-time to revo­lutionize how you create hard surface models, architectural structures or highly detailed environments. The possibilities are endless.

  • Instances and Details: With the new NanoMesh and Array Mesh features, you as the artist can bring more complexity and detail to your work while still maintaining a low polygon count. Both NanoMesh and ArrayMmesh will allow for multiple instances of any object to be created and then adjusted in a matter of seconds.
  • ZBrush to KeyShot: With the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge you can seamlessly connect ZBrush with KeyShot 5 to produce hyper-realistic and high quality images. If you don’t already own Key­Shot 5 or if its price is simply out of your reach, a “special edition” KeyShot for ZBrush is also available*.The KeyShot for ZBrush Bridge changes your Best Preview Render (BPR) button to instead send your models to KeyShot with a single click. All associated data transfers automatically, including materials, displaced geometries, procedural noise, PolyPaint or textures — and of course the new NanoMesh and Array Mesh. If ZBrush can display it, KeyShot can render it!* The KeyShot for ZBrush edition is based on KeyShot HD functionality except for two points: It can only communicate with ZBrush (no importing from other packages) and there are no restric­tions on rendering size. Luxion normally sells KeyShot HD for USD 995 but the introductory price to bundle of the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge together with Keyshot for ZBrush is only USD 249. After the introductory period, the regular price will still be a terrific value at USD 349.

  • 64-Bit Support: Push the boundaries of your imagination with the ZBrush 4R7 64-bit Preview Edition*. ZBrush can now tap all available computer memory and processing power for more details, even more complex models and faster operations.*The official release of ZBrush 4R7 is a native 32-bit application. We are also providing a native 64-bit build as a Developer Preview. This 64-bit application has been tested and should work flawlessly, but since the 64-bit conversion is a major overhaul of the core programming, official 64-bit support will not be available until the release of ZBrush 5. Version 4R7 will be the final 32-bit release of ZBrush.
  • ZRemesher 2.0: Retopologizing has never been as artist-friendly as with ZRemesher 2.0. With a single click, you can automatically produce organic or hard surface topology without spi­rals. If one-click topology isn’t the right answer for every situation, you can intuitively take control of the re-topology process with curves to assist in determining polygon flow.

  • Render with Complete Details – Surface Noise: With ZBrush 4R7 the BPR Render system will now render all Surface Noise as dis­placement, deforming the mesh to match the attributes of any procedurally created noise. It is like having a displacement map without needing to actually create the map. See extremely detailed results at render time regardless of polygon count.
  • FBX Import/Export: To continue improving its integration with the artist’s pipeline, ZBrush 4R7 introduces a new free plugin: FBX Import Export. This supports texture, normal and displacement maps, blendshapes, smoothing based on normals and much more!
  • Other Enhancements and Additions: As with past updates, ZBrush 4R7 doesn’t stop at major features. It also includes numerous other additions which will improve your productivity and creativity. A few are:
    • Replay Last can now be reapplied to any portion of the model.
    • Background images applied with the Grid system can now be projected onto your model for a painted guide in your newest creations.
    • Start any sculpt with the new polygonal Cube, Sphere and Cylinder primitives.
    • Automatically center the TransPose line on any unmasked, partially visible or symmetrical piece of geometry with one click.
    • Copy and Paste between Tools, SubTools and even Projects.
    • Now hold Shift to switch on Dynamic Draw Size to avoid accidentally turning it on.
