| Omniverse – NAVIDIA, Jan 3th, 2023

On the third of this month, Nvidia has announced the latest updates on it’s real-time platform for 3D design collaboration & digital twin simulation, Omniverse.

New features including:

Updates Audio2Face, Audio2Gesture and Audio2Emotion to improve performances with easier audio-to-animation options.

Enable Canvas, a free AI-based painting tool we have introduced before, available in Omniverse Launcher, and Open Omniverse Launcher to system builders.

A new Blender add-on that brings 3D generative AI capabilities and adds ‘one-button’ integration with Audio2Face to solve the challenge of reattaching a rigged character’s head.

A new Omniverse connector for Unity, a bugfix update to the Substance 3D Painter connector, thousands of new, free 3D assets and more.

Ominverse requires Windows 10+ and CentOS 7/Ubuntu 18.04+ Linux, and is free for individual creators. For more details of the new features, you may click here to check NVIDIA’s update post.

| Substance 3D Painter 8.3 – Adobe, Jan 10th, 2023

Adobe released Substance 3D Painter 8.3, the latest version of the 3D texture painting software on Jan 10th, 2023.

New features including:

Transformed the old baking window to a new baking mode with more options for baking geometry-based texture maps.

Improves viewport visualization with both the high-poly mesh and the cage mesh available in the viewport. Users now can also interact with the viewport when meshes are loading or baking.

Allows users to import models for texturing in USD format, including variants, skinning data, and at a particular frame in an animation; and can export the textured asset as either a USD layer or a new USD file.

Extends the physical scale system with UV-based texture projection supported for Substance materials, and more.

Substance 3D Painter 8.3 is available for Windows 10, CentOS 7.0/Ubuntu 20.04+ Linux and macOS 11.0+. You may click here to learn more new features of the program.

| ZBrush 2023 – Maxon, Jan 12ed, 2023

ZBrush 2023

Maxon has released the new year version of its 3D digital sculpting program, ZBrush 2023, with both new features and improvements included. Give a brief view of what in ZBrush 2023 with XRender.

New features including:

Integrating Redshift, Maxon’s fully GPU-accelerated biased render engine, into ZBrush, with the support of Standard, MatCap and Redshift materials to improve the visual quality and realism of render results.

As an additional benefit of the integration of Redshift, creators now can “apply ZBrush native filters to your finished render, just as if it was a ZBrush render”.

A new masking-system-based tool called Slime Bridge allows users to create connections between different parts of a sculpt and use sliders to make more fine control.

Improve the retopology tool ZRemesher with a new caching system to reduce the time of remesheing, a new Retry option to repeat a remeshing operation on the original geometry with different remeshing settings, and more.

Other improves include the updates to masking, Sculptris Pro, symmetry, workflow and performance improvements. You may click here to read the full announcement from the product page here.
