"ZBrushT is an award-winning painting, modeling, and texturing application offering the best of both 2D and 3D within one innovative real-time environment, maximizing an artist's productivity and creativity."
ZBrushT employs revolutionary smart pixels, called Pixols, to retain color, material, depth and orientation information within an image. Handling unintuitive and time-consuming calculations that would normally be done manually, Pixols free an artist to focus on experimenting and enjoying what he or she produces.
With Pixols, an artist maintains total control over the amount of depth added or subtracted and can utilize differences in depth for precise image control and editing. Using a mouse or stylus pen an artist can easily create 3D primitive and freeform shapes that react to any combination of a Pixol's surface attributes. Furthermore, ZBrushT is host to an extensive set of real-time 3D sculpting, painting, texturing and deformation tools - seamlessly integrated in one intuitive environment. With instant feedback encompassing a unique synthesis of 2D and 3D capabilities in a single stand-alone tool, ZBrushT offers tremendous flexibility and appeals to a wide audience
