I note it's designed to be cross-platform. The Pixologoc guys better get their arses in gear if they want to stay in the game.

it looks wonderful, and i will say that mudbox and silo 2 will be my main apps for 3d sculpting, zbrush 2.5 looks wonderful:thumbsup:, but i suspect that Z2.5 won`t have perp. camera and a real 3d enviroment...
In the other side mudbox and silo 2 will have a good conventional real perpective camera.

from mudbox website: ( PIXOLOGIC, take ""note"" of this )



True 3D camera offering perspective and orthographic views. Create, import and delete multiple cameras and camera bookmarks.



Maximum usable work space. Conventional camera controls allow the workspace to take full advantage of your screen's real estate and to enable the cursor to remain close to the action, over the model, while sculpting.



besides, even as much as i love zbrush (and i really do) ho knows when is goin to be released,it could be another two years, i mean even at this stage they refuse to talk about a release date, in the other side mudbox is goin to be out very soon before the end of the year and silo 2 beta will be released in the next days..!!
