Continuing the roadmap to ZBrush 3,
Pixologic, makers of the award-winning program ZBrush, have announced the release of a new plug-in, ZAppLink. ZAppLink is a free plug-in that extends and enhances ZBrush’s texturing and illustration capabilities by automating the connection with programs such as Photoshop, Painter, and Illustrator.
ZAppLink works with click-button ease and continues Pixologic’s commitment to providing innovative tools to support next generation artists forging the work of tomorrow.

It is an easy-to-use tool that gives you access to the best of both worlds and allows you to take full advantage of all of Photoshop’s image editing tools.”
Jaime Labelle, General Manager of Pixologic, Inc. says, “By building a bridge from ZBrush to other programs that artists are already familiar with we are extending ZBrush’s functionality while at the same time building an environment for the artist that is both familiar and exciting.”
