Pixologic ships ZBrush 2021.1

Pixologic has released ZBrush 2021.1, a free bugfix update to the digital sculpting software that enables users to choose the way in which it works with Windows Ink.

The release, which is intended to reduce lag when sculpting on Windows tablets like the Surface Pro, enables users to set the software to handle Windows Ink in the same way as ZBrush 2019, 2020.1.4 or 2021.

The update also includes a number of smaller fixes and workflow improvements, including improved stability for the new TransposeCloth tool added in ZBrush 2021 earlier this month.

You can find a full run-down of the features in ZBrush 2021 – a major update, adding a complete new soft body dynamics system and cloth sculpting toolset – in our original story.
