Ultimate ZBrush Experience: Maxon Presents The 2022 ZBrush Summit

Maxon, developers of professional software solutions for editors, filmmakers, motion designers and visual effects artists, is excited to present the 2022 ZBrush Summit. Broadcasting from Mobeon Studios in Burbank, this four-day live streaming event will take place from Sunday, November 13th through Wednesday the 16th. This year’s event will incorporate a hybrid, mixed reality and live broadcast. Virtual environments and other 3D elements were created and animated with Maxon One products, and will be rendered in real-time through the Unreal Engine.

The show will kick off with the annual ZBrush Sculpt-Off Challenge on Sunday, November 13th (12pm to 3:30pm PST), where entrants will go head-to-head with other community members in the world's most prestigious digital sculpting competition for a chance to win major prizes (announced live during the show). A panel of esteemed judges will determine the “Made In ZBrush” challenge winners. 

Open to all ZBrush users around the world, this year’s theme - Monuments - will require participants to base their sculpture around one of the following category prompts: Zen, Bravery, Rebirth, Unity, Strength, or Honor. Viewers can watch all the action or follow along on Twitter (@pixologic), YouTube (Pixologic ZBrush / Maxon), and Twitch (@Pixologic) using the hashtag #LIVEZBrushSculptOff2022 and #ZBrushSummit.

Hosted by members of the ZBrush Team, the four-day virtual Summit will feature exciting announcements, as well as a series of presentations by industry leading artists who are eager to share their professional tips, tricks, and techniques with the ZBrush community.

“Since our acquisition of ZBrush less than a year ago, we have been so pleased to see our community growing and to be able to bring over with it a great wealth of knowledge and expertise from the ZBrush team,” says Maxon CEO, David McGavran. “The recent product update saw ZBrush included in the Maxon One subscription package at no extra cost, and we hope that users who have been making the most of this addition to their toolset will be excited to demonstrate and further develop their skills through this upcoming event.”
