ZBrush seems silly?  First time I've heard that one!  But I imagine it would depend upon what you intend to use it for...

ZBrush is unique in the graphic arts world, being a blend of 2D, 2.5D and 3D capabilities.  The end result is that it bridges the gap between 2D and 3D apps in ways that can be pretty surprising.  Here are a few pluses:

  • [*:df7371e1cb]Real-Time rendering.  Almost everything that you could want to do happens real time.  No waiting for test renders.[*:df7371e1cb]Model like working with clay, rather than a CAD program.  ZBrush modeling starts with one of nearly a dozen 3D primitives (which are each able to be initialized in countless ways).  These primitives are then able to be modified through a couple dozen deformers, masking, or a simple and intuitive method of adding or removing polygons and pushing or pulling on them -- just like clay.  The first method is great for inorganic shapes; the latter for the organic.  Of course, ZBrush also imports and exports in either OBJ or DXF formats so that you can use it in conjunction with most other 3D apps.[*:df7371e1cb]
  • TextureMaster.  A whole slew of artists who never paid much attention to ZBrush before are suddenly standing up and taking notice now that this little number has been made available for ZBrush.  Simply put, it allows a texture artist to paint textures directly onto a 3D model without distortions and without "go betweens" like projection painting.  These textures can be painted using all of ZBrush's 2D, 2.5D and 3D tools, resulting in a 2.5D texture that has unbelievable realism even in other programs without the need to waste processor power on a bump map.  Although if you still want a bump map, ZBrush will create that for you, too.


These are just a few of the many, many perks to a very remarkable program.  It has a price tag that won't break your budget, and a free demo to let you make up your mind for yourself.  You can learn more about it at the ZBrush users' forum: http://www.pixolator.com.  This place is a great place to go and see the latest stuff that's being done with the program, as well as to get practically any question about its use answered.  The free demo is available at http://www.zbrush.com, and I hear that the site will very soon be offering quite a bit of information on how ZBrush can benefit all kinds of professionals.

I downloaded Zbrush before, and it send me the password, but when I type it in, the program refuses to take it. :'(

You need to type it in exactly as you see it. So the first part is in capital letters. Did you make sure you typed it in capital letters?

A couple of questions:

Was it the demo that you downloaded, or the retail version?

If copying and pasting the password doesn't work, then depending on which version you have the solution will be different.  

For the retail version, you'll find a link in the Serial_Number.txt file under the Troubleshooting section.  Use the link to get a new temporary password.

For the demo, go to www.zbrush.com.  There is a page there where you can request a new demo password.

If this still doesn't do the trick, then send an email to support@pixologic.com and they will help you out.

I use Softimage XSI I hate modeling organic things with any 3D app
Z Brush allows you to model organic things in a more fun natural way. I already have a Wacom pen and tablet so just need to get some funds in to begin some character modeling without the pain.
Industrail Light & Magic used Z Brush to model the Davy Jones character.
I'ts just good practice to use Z Brush with an app thats more suited to rendering and animation so you get the best out of your talent.

我认为 ZBRUSH 很好。 我是个初学者,觉得上手也比较快,对设计师创意有很好的表现,希望能够学好这个软件。 尤其是建立精细的模型,然后导到3D里进行再续制作,是个很好的建模软件。

It was a decent presentation, a little more emphasis on the content could have enriched the post even further.
