ZBrush is the leading industry standard digital sculpting software. Its features and tools allow you to use customisable brushes to shape, texture and paint in a real-time environment with instant feedback. This software has been designed to remove the constraints of traditional modelling and allow you to create freely, just as you would with clay.
Redshift is a powerful GPU-accelerated renderer designed to meet the specific requirements of contemporary high-end production rendering. Created to support creative individuals and studios of all sizes, it offers a powerful suite of features and integrates with industry-standard CG applications.
Designed to have the uncompromising features and quality of CPU rendering, but at GPU rendering speeds. Unlike other GPU renderers, Redshift is a biased renderer that allows the user to adjust the quality of individual techniques to achieve the best balance of performance and quality for their production.
Its out-of-the-box functionality provides the essentials for photorealistic results, and its RenderView interactive preview area makes it easy to change settings and get immediate results. In fact, artists can make adjustments more or less in real time.
