Silo + ZBrush: adding GoZ support
Dev Notes / October 16th, 2018 6:29 pm
Silo + GoZBrush

A little sneak peek: we're currently in the process of adding GoZBrush support to Silo, which will allow you to easily send models back and forth between Silo and Pixologic's ZBrush as you work. Assuming we can get over a final few tricky implementation hurdles, you should see this update quite soon. Silo and ZBrush have always made an ideal pairing, and GoZ support will make them even better.

You can read more about GoZ over on Pixologic's site here: http://pixologic.com/zbrush/features/GoZBrush/

Cheers!

Big News! Pixelmash is Now Released!

Dear Friends of Nevercenter,

We’re delighted to announce that our new resolution-independent pixel art editor, Pixelmash, is out of beta and now released (version 1.0.01)!

Download Pixelmash: https://nevercenter.com/pixelmash
Watch the trailer here: https://youtu.be/meoK9pwnx6s

Pixelmash brings a whole new approach to pixel art by letting you paint or import high-resolution images, then non-destructively pixelize and apply other layer effects to turn it into amazing pixel art. This lets you do *really* cool things, such as:
  • Create animations using layer transforms (rather than having to paint every frame pixel-by-pixel)
  • Make outlines, shading, and dithering easily adjustable by having them applied non-destructively as layer effects
  • Easily create different resolutions and color variants of the same image
  • Convert photos or other hi-res artwork into pixel art using layer effects and the resolution slider
  • And much more!

Check out the website for more information, and you can see an extended video walkthrough of all of the features here: https://youtu.be/-xcXS73nofE

Hope you like it! As always, we love to hear from you. Pixelmash is so new that people are still inventing new ways to use it - show us what you're creating, give us feedback, and join the conversation by following @nevercenter on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Many thanks to all the beta testers who have helped make Pixelmash what it is! We'll get right back to work adding new features based on your feedback.

Best,
Nevercenter

Silo 2.5.5 with Segmented Bevel

Dear Friends of Silo,

We're excited to announce the release of Silo 2.5.5!

Our Silo updates continue! This update adds a significant new (and much-requested) feature: segmented bevel with adjustable rounding. The new functionality is integrated within the existing Bevel tool, with two new fields added to the Bevel Options window: Segments, and Rounding. You can see an explanatory video of the new Bevel in action here. Please try it out and send along any feedback you may have, as this feature may continue to change over time.

To Download: This is a free update for all Silo 2.x Pro license holders, and you should download your update to Silo 2.5.5 the same way you originally purchased the program: via the Mac App Store, Steam, or the Nevercenter website.

As always, we love to hear from you on the CGTalk Silo Forums, Trello, Facebook, and Twitter. Happy modeling!

Best,
Nevercenter
