I feel like Spongebob waiting at the clock at work lol... super excited...but at the same time, I have class and Gears of War 3 to play... ahh, the fun.
i remember the previous releases of zbrush... i got nervous, excited, frustrated, bored, excited again, angry, depressed... as i received the upgrade-mails at the very last moment... it took about a week after the final release date...
so this year i pledge to be patient, patient, looking forward, getting nervous, excited, but never - never! - angry
Like I said before, brushes will probably still push polygons in and out without being able to create holes the way you can with voxels. From watching the videos posted, it seems as if the updated clipping brush and boolean brush will be the only way to create holes in Z4r2. Not exactly subtractive in the sense you mean, but certainly getting closer.
Will there be a trial version of Zbrush 4 R2 avaible soon ?

So, is here someone could tell us what's new?
I think that's a big let down for a lot of people, but then most of us suspected 64bit wasn't on the cards for this release. I'm sure the new features are worth the wait.
AND do you have ANY IDEA how much coffee 750+ hours represents???
EDIT: its the 20th

I don't know what I'm doing but I'm doing it anyway.
i hae a couple of questions. is the upgrade free? will it be in 64 bit?
at this time.
I know everyone is excited as ever about the new release and the long time users of Z already know
the routine of how the upgrade releases work. If you've never been through one of these just be
patient. They release the emails in batches so as not to nuke their server from everyone trying to
download the update all at once. No real rhyme or reason to the timing of the emails as far as I know,
just make sure to watch your spam folders as well. Sometimes they sneak in there.
For people who are concerned that they did not receive their Upgrade Preview email, do not worry. It was sent using the same system that we use for newsletters and other announcements. If you at any point opted out of that mailing list (by clicking the "opt out" link that is every such email), you will not have been sent the Upgrade Preview.
This has no effect on the actual upgrade, however. The upgrade email will be sent by our order fulfillment company, Cleverbridge.
Again, I would like to stress what I stated yesterday: The upgrade will be released when everything is ready for that to happen. There are a lot of elements to be coordinated on launch day.
We appreciate your enthusiasm! Just please don't go reordering your life to count on getting your email within a specific time frame.
- Launch will take place before midnight tonight, Pacific time.
- Upgrade emails will begin going out when 4R2 launches.
- It may take as long as a week to send all the emails. Don't panic if yours doesn't arrive tonight. Or even tomorrow night!
