Pixologic ZBrush 4R7 - WIN (Single User License) Academic
Pixologic ZBrush 4R7 has been released! Pixologic is pleased to offer Hair, Fur and Fiber capabilities amongst other features. The new \FiberMesh will enable quick and intuitive creation of hair and other fibrous materials. The FiberMesh function will generate fully sculptable Polymesh 3d objects. This means your fur and fibers will behave as sculptable geometry when using any of ZBrush’s 3D sculpting brushes. Users will benefit from having control over density ranges where meshes are concerned. Polygon numbers will span a wide range from minute to millions, all the while retaining exportability. These features will be joined by our developments to the BPR (Best Preview Render) system. The added functionality in the BPR system, will see users benefit from the ability to have even more control in the creation of highly detailed final rendered images.
