Pixologic ZBrush 4R7 Release

Pixologic proud to announce ZBrush 4R7, which will be the final release in the ZBrush 4 series. More information about this version will be made available at a later date.

  • We are currently deep in development of the 64-bit version of ZBrush and 4R7 will be the final 32-bit version.

We will be releasing a 64-bit public beta of ZBrush 4R7 on the same day that the 32-bit version is officially released for both Windows and Macintosh.

  • We are happy to announce a collaboration between Pixologic and Luxion, creating a Bridge for seamless interaction between ZBrush and KeyShot.

A ZBrush Bridge and KeyShot package will be offered at an MSRP of $349. However, we will offer an introductory pricing of $249. This offer will be available upon the release of ZBrush 4R7.

  • Take a peek at what we’ve been up to with these images created by Joseph Drust, Paul Gaboury and Thomas Roussel using the new ZBrush features as well as the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge below….

ZBrush 4R7 FAQ

Q: When will ZBrush 4R7 be released?
A: Release date, upgrade instructions and feature list will be posted at a later date.

All registered users – including those who will purchase ZBrush between now and the release of ZBrush 4R7 – will receive the 4R7 update free of charge!

Q: What is a ”Public Beta”?
A: It’s a special edition of ZBrush 4R7 64-BIT. The features are exactly the same as the 32-BIT 4R7 version but we have updated the core of ZBrush to take full advantage of 64-BIT processing power and memory (RAM) capabilities.

Q: Is the KeyShot for ZBrush Bridge the KeyShot renderer?
A: No. The bridge only sends data from ZBrush to KeyShot. You still need to actually have KeyShot 5 or above installed on your computer in order for it to be able to render.

Q: What is “KeyShot for ZBrush”?
A: KeyShot for ZBrush will be the latest KeyShot version, designed to work exclusively with the “ZBrush to KeyShot” bridge. Both will be available concurrently with the release of ZBrush 4R7 and available at an introduction price of USD 249.

Q: If I already have KeyShot, can I get the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge by itself?
A: Yes. The price for the Bridge by itself will be announced at a later date.

Q: Is “KeyShot for ZBrush” a full version of KeyShot?
A: YES! This special edition has all of KeyShot’s features but is designed to work exclusively with the “ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge”.

Q: Will ZBrush 5 have a 32-BIT version?
A: No. ZBrush 4R7 will be the last 32-BIT version.

Q: Which features will ZBrush 5 contain?
A: We are not announcing the features for ZBrush 5 yet, except that it will be 64-bits for Windows and Macintosh systems.

    not really impressed with the fact i already have keyshot, and zbrush and yet now i have to BUY a goz app for them, since when did we have to pay for “bridges”, will the 3ds max “bridge” be a charged feature next, not amused at all, if you have both programs you should get the plugin

    • Dave Anthony Davidson

      lol for years you have received feature rich upgrades for zbrush for FREE and now you are acting like they are the most greedy company on the planet. Not one of my other apps have given away their upgrades for free FOR YEARS. I don’t think you have any grounds to be pissed at them mate. IMHO

    • Matthew Heimlich

      ZBrush hasn’t asked for a dime from existing users in like a decade. I’m pretty sure you’ll live. A lot more goes into a rendering bridge than just the repurposed .obj export of a GoZ applink.

    • Micheal Gray

      ^^this guy jeez^^

      • Micheal Gray

        if you think there being unreasonable you could always switch to mudbox, i think there updates are only £400 and you get pretty much nothing

        • austingraphics

          Updates? Don’t forget that the Mudbox license fee is due whether the software is updated or not?

          • William

            lol zbrush gives free updates, mudbox you have to paid for there updates every year, not only that mudbox license is restricted to the country you bought it in, so if you travel you would have to repurchase mudbox for that country where zbrush doesn’t have license restrictions, if you own keyshot and zbrush you can just buy the bridge…..

    • austingraphics

      Because your GO Z app wouldn’t render zbrush materials, especially fiber and hair. I also own Zbrush and Keyshot and have no problem paying $249 for a product that has given away thousands of dollars in updates over a 10 year period. I think I paid $399 for Zbrush 2.5 and this is the only update I have ever paid a dime for.

    • Eric

      wow what a cheapskate lol

    • haha u

      Waaaaaaaah

  • Tajcicuan

    Will a Linux version ever be released?

  • austingraphics

    Also Kudos to Keyshot for allowing Zbrush to import it’s own materials instead of the Keyshot materials library.

  • Gareth J Beedie

    jees you guys are preciouse, and im soooo glad you have had 10 years of free up dates to be all pleased with, i however have not…..i have had zbrush since 4r6 was released, and only brought keyshot 5 a month ago, and considering im a student its a significant outlay, bully for you, if it makes you feel better i am excited about the new modeling features, but if i wanna complain about another huge amount of money on something that iv been looking forward to since they beta tested the keyshot goz, i will!

    • haha u

      Whiney girl

  • Thomas Teger

    The KeyShot bridge is not based on GoZ. If you already own KeyShot, you will be able to just buy the bridge.

    • dsw

      So will this bridge only work with Keyshot 5 or will it work for Keyshot 4 users?

      • Thomas Teger

        It will only work with KeyShot 5.
