ZBrush 4R7 Coming this Month Posted almost 4 years ago by Simon Day - Posted in General

 
Readers will be pleased to know that the new ZBrush 4R7 is on the way this January, after being delayed from December due to development and testing. This has been confirmed by the founder of Pixologic, Ofer Alon:  

"We originally planned for this release to take place before the end of this year. As it turns out, due to the sheer volume of development involved in creating the first ever 64-bit versions of ZBrush for both Windows and Macintosh, it is taking a little longer than expected. There are effectively four versions to test — twice as many as in previous releases. With that in mind, I feel that we should take the time to fine-tune and deliver the very best possible capstone to the 4.x series in order to allow you to gain the most benefit from the new features. We have therefore decided to postpone the release of Z4R7 from December to January."

The video below demonstrates the capabilities of the new version, revealing the following:

- Conveniently create high polygon models (without decimation) by clicking a single button that can be transferred over to KeyShot
- Apply KeyShot materials directly to the mesh
- Maintain settings and properties for size, position, and MatCaps® between ZBrush and KeyShot
- Adjust the HDR Environment lighting to create the perfect Final Render  

Also in case you missed this back in August, see more of what 4R7 can do. This was filmed at the ZBrush summit, definitely worth checking out for a refresher before the upcoming release.

 

Keep your eyes peeled for more news and the confirmed release date soon.
