Pixologic™ ZBrushCore 2021

Pixologic™ is pleased to release ZBrushCore 2021. This new version will provide a number of powerful features that will enhance the way that you use ZBrushCore! Furthermore, ZBrushCore 2021 is a FREE UPGRADE for all registered ZBrushCore users.

To demonstrate, check out the video that discusses the new features.


ZBrushCore 2021 Highlights

Dynamic Subdivision

Display your model as a higher polygon version of itself, letting you see what it would look like when subdivided and smoothed. In ZBrushCore, this feature includes the FlatSubdiv and SmoothSubdiv options.


Uses Dynamic Subdivision to replace each polygon with an instance of a 3D model. This allows your model to render as a much more complicated mesh, such as chain mail!


You read that right! Automatic retopology is being added to ZBrushCore. While it doesn’t have all the options that are found within ZBrush, this will allow you to instantly retopologize your model using the smart algorithms that make ZRemesher so powerful.


ZBrushCore includes even more performance enhancements. Particularly, they revisited the systems behind the sculpting brushes along with many other popular features. Speed has increased across all sectors.

iMage 3D GIF and PNG Format

The iMage 3D format provides a unique way to share both an image of your work and the 3D model itself with others, all in a single GIF or PNG file. Post this file on any website where it will appear as a regular 2D image. Then, once opened in ZBrush, the complete model with all its SubTools is ready to edit.

Sculptris File Support

ZBrushCore can now load native-format files saved from Sculptris. If you have a library of models that you created over the many years before Sculptris was discontinued, you can now open those directly in ZBrushCore to continue working.

Release Notes

Additional features:

  • Preference added to allow single-click Solo mode.


To point out, ZBrushCore 2021 is a FREE UPGRADE for all registered ZBrushCore users. In addition, it is also available for new users to purchase immediately.
