    Well, given the last release date they gave (months in advance) was the 4th quarter of 2008 and there’s still no sign of it, I wouldn’t hold my breath. It seems like Pixologic feel like they have to announce something because of the recent Mudbox releases.

    You know the ones, the ones that actually ARE releases.

    True Sean, it is interesting to note that this will be a FREE update to existing registered Zbrush users

    Mmmm actually this is great news, with zbrush 3 they rushed it out the door because of the release of mudbox and it was one of the most buggiest things ever. But if they are taking their time and fine tuning zb4, it will probably come out polished and worth the wait.

    We’ll wait and see, I think they should have taken their time making that UI a bit more intuitive

    Yeah, the thing is, the 3.0 version was rushed, and obviously so. The problem I have with them is the tendency to not release patches. The 3.1 update was about the only one and was just an emergency fix because 3.0 was so bad it needed SOMETHING. The problem is, since then, there’s been nothing. Zip.
    Mudbox gets service packs. ZBrush users get promises of lots of new features, when mostly they just want the existing stuff to work. There’s a tendency for them to believe their innovation is going to see them through, but to be honest, most people are gonna jump ship from a buggy piece of software with lots of features that can’t be relied on to work, to a stable one with regular updates.

    Good things come to those who wait, Pete.

    I remember being depressed over how Premier Manager 97 on the Mega Drive kept getting delayed. My bloody last year in primary school was ruined waiting for it to be released. But oh my was it worth it. I had Shearer and Cantona in the same team. Shearer and Cantona? Yeah! Together? I know!!
