  • Mudbox 2015 (Download)

    Designed to enable the creation of production-ready 3D digital artwork, Autodesk Mudbox 2015 is an electronically downloaded, single-user license available in 64-bit binaries for Windows, OS X, and select Linux distributions. The software features a range of tools to aid in 3D sculpting and painting, and can be used standalone or in conjunction with other Autodesk and third-party software, in particular Maya and Photoshop. Notable enhancements for 2015 include multi-touch support as well as the ability to run on select computers with Intel HD 4000 graphics.

    What's New and Enhanced for 2015

    Symmetrical Retopologizing
    Enforce topologically symmetrical results when retopologizing meshes
    • Base symmetry on the source topology or on a local or world axis for completely symmetrical results
    • Copy painting and sculpting detail from one or both sides of the source
    • Use the new Make Symmetrical tool to make existing meshes across one or more axes without retopologizing
    Efficient Layer Grouping
    Organize Sculpt Layers and Paint Layers into layer groups to more quickly and easily identify certain layers in complex scenes
    • Toggle visibility to focus on a particular aspect of the work, or to duplicate multiple layers at once
    • Use Sculpt Layer groups to receive and store Blend Shape targets from Maya 2015 software
    • Use Paint Layer groups to manually merge layers or flatten groups on export
    Maya Interoperability for Textures
    Import and export Ptex and multitile UV textures to and from Maya
    • Single-step interoperability provides an iterative round-trip workflow between Mudbox and Maya using Ptex and multitile textures texturing methods
    • Ptex textures offer a UV-less painting workflow
    • Multitile textures enable artists to paint outside of the 0-1 UV space
    Maya Image Plane Matching
    Enjoy a more efficient multiproduct modeling workflow when using images for reference in both Maya and Mudbox software

    Set up an image plane in Maya, and use it as a reference for base mesh modeling. Then, send it to Mudbox along with the model to add finer details as part of the single-step interoperability workflow. The software retains many image plane parameter settings, so you can continue to use the same reference without the need to readjust the image to match
    Maya Blend Shape Interoperability
    Create Blend Shapes in Mudbox and merge them into a Maya scene via Layer Groups
    • Store Blend Shapes as Sculpt Layer groups in Mudbox
    • Add new targets or delete existing ones within Mudbox, and correctly update them in Maya
    • Take advantage of the intuitive Mudbox sculpting toolset to create facial shapes and carry out shot sculpting
    Texture Export and Updating
    An enhanced texture export and updating workflow enables you to set different export paths for different channels and paint layers
    • Mudbox remembers the paths, so textures can update with a single click during painting, regardless of the target downstream application or whether the shaders are supported by Mudbox
    • This capability offers greater flexibility for iterative painting workflows within custom or proprietary pipelines and reduces manual relinking, helping to increase artist productivity
    Caliper Tool for Proportional Measurement
    Measure the distance between two points on a model or along a curve
    • Gauge and maintain proper proportions during the sculpting process
    • Help to ensure that meshes match a desired real-world scale or fit with other objects or environments that may be created separately
    Support for Intel HD Graphics 4000
    Run Mudbox on certain hardware configurations with processors that employ Intel HD graphics 4000. Additionally, take advantage of a wide range of hardware to implement intuitive pen-based and multitouch workflows

    Digital Sculpting Tools

    Paint Directly Onto 3D Models
    Supports true 3D painting across multiple channels, in multiple formats
    Advanced Retopology Tools
    Create clean, production-quality meshes from scanned, imported, or sculpted data
    Texture Baking
    Create accurate normal, displacement, and ambient occlusion maps
    Interactive Control and Display
    Multitouch interaction and render-quality results in the viewport
    3D Layer Capabilities
    Experiment with design concepts and make revisions before committing
