Autodesk Mudbox 2013

Video Description

Autodesk Mudbox is one of the leading digital sculpting and texture painting applications available to 3D professionals and enthusiasts. With an uncluttered workspace and powerful tools, you can focus on creating amazing pieces of art. New to Mudbox 2013 are multipurpose curves, that you can draw on your models or in the world space, customizable workspaces, hard edge and crease support (for use in conjunction with 3D applications that include this functionality). There is also support for tiled paint and sculpt detail, the ability to flip and mirror your objects, support for 16-bit Photoshop files, and more. And, behind the scenes are workflow enhancements like the new Gigatexel engine, for working with more pixels than ever before. Now, more than ever, 3D artists have the tools they need to take their sculptures and textures to the next level. Professional illustrator, television animation art director, and writer Dwayne Ferguson gives you an in-depth look at Mudbox 2013, taking you through the tools and features you will need to master to take your 3D creativity to the next level.
