Sneak peek: new technology in Mudbox 2014

Autodesk has posted a sneak peek of new tools in Mudbox, showing… well, we’re not entirely sure. Unlike recent sneak peeks for 3ds Max, Maya and Softimage, the relevant dialogs are blurred out in the video.

As far as we’re aware, the Display Curves option the artist selects from the marking menu is new, and one of the layers is labelled ‘mesh-retopo-1’, so… some kind of curve-based retopology system?

If you know better, post your feedback in the comments below.

As ever, Autodesk has labelled the video a generic ‘technology preview’, but given that Mudbox 2014 will be unveiled on 27 March, it’s a reasonable guess that the new tools – whatever they are – will form part of it.
