Pixologic announces ZBrush 3.2, GoZ, new plug-in

ZBrush 3.2 update

Pixologic has announced a v3.2 update for ZBrush, along with the new GoZBrush and Decimation Master plug-in. ZBrush is a sculpting and painting program that sketches out a 2D or 3D picture, producing renders with lighting and atmospheric effects. Version 3.2 delivers a series of optimizations and feature adjustments, and includes some early integration of ZBrush 4 technology to improve working with GoZ.

GoZBrush transfers models back and forth between ZBrush and other GoZ-enabled applications, such as Maya, Modo and Cinema 4D. As it works, the tool automatically remaps existing high-resolution details. It also takes care of operations such as correcting point and polygon order, and setting up appropriate shading networks.

Decimation Master is a ZBrush plug-in which reduces the polygon count of models while attempting to preserve detail. Effects such as normal mapping and ambient occlusion can be applied, and content can subsequently be exported to other 3D applications. Users can also export models for 3D printing, or display in a real-time viewer.

ZBrush, GoZBrush and Decimation Master are compatible with Mac OS X 10.0 or later and can be downloaded from the company's website. ZBrush is currently priced at $595.
