SIGGRAPH 2011 – Straight from the ZBlog

Share

Siggraph 2011 promised to be an event of extreme proportions. The city of Vancouver was touted as a fun place with great surrounding attractions, and a Convention Center made famous during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
The city and its people didn’t disappoint!

The “Big Black Box” as it was being called on the showroom floor, reigned supreme and was never short of visitors. Pixologic really stood out as the show stopper with an ensemble cast of presenters taken straight from the ranks of Hollywood and Vancouver’s finest studios!

Special thanks to our industry artist presenters!

The big news was the unveiling of ZBrush 4R2.
There sure has been a lot of talk and ZBrush users finally got to see what all the fuss was about!
You can take a peek at the new features in two ‘sneak preview’ movies for ZBrush 4R2 on ZBrushCentral:

The big ZBrush 4R2 release (for Win and Mac) is scheduled for September 20th 2011.

The booth was also home to the “one a day give away” prize drawing which saw three lucky contestants take home some pretty awesome Sideshow Collectibles. Congratulations to:

  • Bret McNee (X23 vs. Lady Deathstrike)
  • Andreas Maaninka (Neytiri)
  • Meng Lee (Snake Eyes vs. Red Ninjas)

Here’s what they had to say:

“As a ZBrush user and 3D character artist, the gift of a Sideshow Collectable piece was the cherry on top of my Siggraph experience.” Bret McNee

“What an unexpected and great way to end a very nice Siggraph week.” Andreas Maaninka

“I really enjoyed my time at theevent and winning the draw was the icing on the cake… The constant innovations and improvements with every release demonstrates your commitment to digital artists.” Meng Lee
