ZBrush 4 R2 – new features revealed

Pixologic has revealed the new features for Zbrush 4 R2. Alongside the Best Preview Render, a new cut tool and LightCap materials, R2 boasts a new feature called Dynamesh, which solves one of the long-standing issues with ZBrush. Dynamesh retopologises the object, giving you a nice medium-density mesh for you to add details. Other new functions include a ‘repeat stroke’ action which is very useful if you want to use a subtle stroke again and again to build up detail.
