Pixologic Announcement



Since the release of ZBrush 3.2 for OSX and the introduction of GoZ (, we have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from the artistic community as well as companies interested in becoming GoZ supported applications.
In order to continue refining GoZ and other ZBrush4 features, we have decided to postpone the release of ZBrush 4 and instead release an interim ZBrush 3.5 for Windows and Mac users. Version 3.5 will have all the features of ZBrush 3.2 — including GoZ — as well as additional refinements.

With Decimation Master you will be able to easily reduce the polygon count of your models in a very efficient way while keeping all their sculpted details.

Sculpt your model with ZBrush, add all your small details and push your artistic skills, then optimize your ZTool. Export it to your favorite 3D package which will now be able to open your sculpting to create specific textures like Normal Maps or Ambient Occlusion maps by baking the high resolution mesh information on a low resolution mesh.

Another use is to export your model for a Rapid Prototyping process (3D printing) and bring your virtual art to a real object but also displaying your model in a real-time viewer such as PDF 3D. The possibilities are infinite!

Main features 

  • High quality optimization with accuracy details.
  • Two different optimizations for a better control of the result.
  • Optimization based on the polypainting information
