Features of Pixologic™ ZBrush® 4R8

ZBrush 4R8 continues our tradition of creating digital sculpting tools that enable an artist to design with immediate response, even with digital sculptures that have vast amounts of detail. The list of new features in ZBrush 4R8 expand upon the digital sculpting workflow within ZBrush. Many new features will provide increased freedom while designing, foremost of which are Live Boolean and Vector Displacement Mesh. ZBrush 4R8 introduces multi-language support, as well as many other enhancements such as a new transformation tool, the Gizmo 3D and a new text generator that will allow the artist to create text and logos with real-time adjustments. And these are only the beginning!
 

  • Live Boolean:
    For all their power, Boolean systems have historically required a lot of trial and error before finally getting a satisfying result. With Live Boolean, artists gain the ability to combine multiple sculptures together and see in real-time what the resulting mesh will look like. Any model can be subtracted from another, regardless of their polygon counts. You can even use Live Boolean with the existing instancing systems in ZBrush such as NanoMesh and ArrayMesh. While Live Boolean is active, you can even sculpt on your models while previewing the Boolean results. All of these options can be combined together to provide new sculpting workflows that are unique to ZBrush.
     
  • Real-Time Preview:
    Live Boolean is also excellent for creating hard surface models. Live Boolean makes it possible for you to preview any addition and subtraction operations between your source models, allowing adjustments to be made on the fly.

    There is no guesswork, since you are able to dynamically see the end result before committing to the operation. You can adjust any part on a mesh and see it instantly impact the model. It’s 100% interactive, non-destructive and works with any sculpt.
     
  • Using Live Boolean for 3D Printing:
    Live Boolean is perfect for creating models for manufacturing, toy design, product design, collectibles, and more. Use any sculpt to create articulated joints, keys for 3D printing, hollowing, or even to create molds for production.
     
  • Converting Your Live Booleans:
    The Live Boolean function is not only a preview system inside ZBrush but can also be converted to true geometry to allow export for use in other applications.

    When it comes time to finalize a Live Boolean creation, simply click a single button and the Live Boolean process will be converted to geometry. The structure of your models will change as little as possible, with topology changes only taking place where the source models connect to each other. Even with models that are comprised of several million polygons, the result can be generated in just a few seconds.
     
  • Vector Displacement Mesh Feature:
    Expand your Alpha arsenal with a new library of Vector Displacement Meshes (VDM). These are 3D sculpts used as brush building blocks that will allow undercutting when drawing on a model’s surface. As an example, you can draw a nose complete with nostrils in a single brush stroke. Or an ear with complete front and back sides. Or a bent finger, scales with a raised angle or even an open mouth. All of this without lost depth or detail.

    Vector Displacement Mesh creates real overhangs as you sculpt. Push the details of your model with precise placement on sculpts with millions of polygons.

Customer Reviews

  1. Very impressed

    by on

    Studica delivered everything I needed for to activate zBrush in less than 24 hours. The discounted price helped me a very notable amount of money. The only issues I encountered was that payment would not go through on Google chrome, so I had to use Microsoft "edge".

  3. ZBrush is great

    It's such great program and getting it for half price for being a student is nice.

  4. As a begginer

    by on

    So far, I liked Zbrush very much. It gave me possibilities to build models that, I used to worry about quality and time I spend.

  5. Fantastic Art and 3D software

    ZBrush is a fantastic piece of kit, worth every penny.

  6. Everything I expected it to be.

    by on

    There is absolutely NO doubt in my mind as to why this is the industry standard when it comes to modeling software. Steep learning curve - if you are not ready to spend a few hours a day watching tutorials or reading about how to use this program for at least the first week or two, be warned: Zbrush WILL defeat you - It is not beginner-friendly. Luckily, Pixologic has you covered with classroom videos.

    So I had a problem with a license not sending but upon calling customer service I got everything figured out in less than 5 minutes. Got everything I expected.

  8. Great price and service

    by on

    After looking around for a while after my trial ran out. I found Zbrush on Studica for an awesome price. I was a little skeptic on the pricing. Though after purchasing the software, I did not receive it right away because it was the weekend. If you want the software quicker, you will need to purchase on the weekdays or regular business days. Other than that the software works great and is definitely the most updated version. If you are on the fence about purchasing it on here, don't be. I believe this is a great place to start if you are beginning to learn the software.

  9. Scared to buy Retail ZBrush from Studica? I was! I thought there was some kind of a trick or features removed for the $150 price difference.

    by on

    I shopped for ZBrush for about 3 months. All I ever found was the $799.00 price tag. Since I work for the University of Texas at Austin, I thought to checkout the Academic pricing for ZBrush on Studica. As I was looking through there price list, I found a retail version listed for $650.00. At first I thought there must be some restriction or some of the features have been removed or some other got-you. So I kept looking. Then one day I was searching at the ZBrush site for authorized dealers and found that Studica was in the list. I was surprised. So I went back to their web site and keep looking to see what was missing from the ZBrush package. I mean for $150 difference something must be amiss. Finally, I thought they are authorized dealers so if I use a charge card and they jack me around, I can go to the ZBrush people and complain. So I started to purchase it from them. I put in my cart and the first thing that pops-up is that I won't get the download immediately. I thought something is fishy here and aborted the purchase. Over the next week or so, the $150 savings kept nagging me. So after thinking it over, I went back put it in the cart and purchased it. I was concerned abut spending the $650 which is a significant amount to me. So I get an invoice email that I purchased it. I thought so what, were is my product. How do I download it. Have I tied up my $650 in some black hole paperwork factory. I called the service number. The Studica rep tells me that the ZBrush (Pixologic) folks had received the order and would contact me with the download info. Sure enough about an hour later in comes all the download and activation information from the ZBrush people. I downloaded it, installed it and am now using it. It is the full version directly from Pixologic. It has everything that the $799.00 purchase has. I saved $150 Bucks. It was a little scary. Studica does not give you a lot details about the steps you can expect when purchasing from them but in the end it all worked out great. I had my full commercial (retail) ZBrush 4R7 up and running within about 4 hours and I saved $150. Now, if I could just find a great deal on a Wacom Cintiq 13HD, I would have it made in the shade.

  12. Pure awesome

    by on

    There is nothing that zbrush couldn't do. Making digital models is super easy after you learn the basics of this program. Retopo tools could be better, but they'll do the trick.

  15. Awesome!

    by on

    As with all 3D software there is a hefty learning curve, and you've got to knuckle down and go through the tutorials, but the rewards are there. It is an amazing bit of software.

  17. Industry standard for a reason

    by on

    I've been learning 3D sculpting to see if it was for me, before making the commitment to ZBrush. While it does have a learning curve, it is amazing! I have 4R7 and the feature set is way more than you'll ever need. If you are serious about modeling for games, movies, organic or hard surface, then ZBrush is what I would highly recommend!

  18. Pixologic ZBrush 4R6 is great!

    by on

    I recently bought the Pixologic ZBrush 4R6 (I will be able to update it to 4R7 soon, which is another bonus) and I think it is great! It didn't take too long to download and works fast. I did get a special SSD drive for it though. The interface is easy to read and with the download came some instruction files on how to get started, which was a great help. There are a lot of tutorials on the internet too. I have never worked with a 3D program, so it is a steep learning curve and I will probably get a book on ZBrush for easy referral as there is no 'help' button in the program. But the possibilities are limitless!
