Mudbox or Zbrush?
show user profile  KaosAdrian
For a fleeting hobbiest, which is easiest with the best bang for the buck?

Sculptris is free and easy.

Mudbox is easier to learn than zbrush ($375 from Amazon)

Zbrush is harder to learn, but has many more features. $580

yeah i had many failed attempts to get more familiar with zbrush, mudbox has an option for max's hotkeys and mouse functionality though so i was sculpting away in just a few minutes. I also keep waiting for the day they decide to integrate mudbox's subdivision system into max so i wouldnt have to bother with all the baking and shit and could just slap mudbox result on as a modifier, in fact why havent they done this already or better yet just integrate all mudbox into max, now that would be a release i'd approve of

I'm with Stabby...

I really love all the new features and it seems as though Pixologic are pouring a lot of love (the good kind) into zBrush... but MudBox lets me sculpt whatever I want/need almost immediately. If the MudBox modifier existed... that'd seal the deal...

With all the sculpt-offs going on right now... I'm tempted to get my 30 day trial of zBrush. I was hoping I could get a 3 year student subscription (like I currently have with AutoDesk Products), but alas Pixologic =/= Autodesk...

They have been in the past but i wouldn't count on them being free forever. They'll probably charge for zb5

zbush, because there is no alternative. And despite what poeple might claim (and these are people that never made an effort to learn zbush) the interface of zbrush is amazing. You can put it aside for a year and then start sculpting again and it all feels natural like riding a bicycle.

I have been trying out both in the last 2 weeks and I say Zbrush as well.

Mudbox might be faster to begin with but Zbrush will pick up what might be lost in a few sessions.
