Howdy ya'll not sure if this thread should be here, but my computer was virused up and I lost my zbrush 4 r2. Do you guys know how I can get my Zbrush back? Preferably Zbrush 4r5 this time. I'm trying to avoid torrents because my uncle who is an expert in computers told me to avoid them so I don't get any viruses. If you guys know anything more about torrents like if torrents aren't so bad for my computer then let me know because I feel that torrents may be the only way. I do not want to buy Zbrush obviously because it is crazy expensive. So if you guys know any way let me know.

Thanks:)

    I don't recommend torrenting it, one for the viruses, and two, it's not legal. Have you ever tried sculptris? It's not near the program zBrush is, but it's very capable for beginner to intermediate level sculpts. Plus, it's legal and 100% virus free. If you don't like that, try Blender. Besides being an awesome modeling program, it also has built-in sculpting features, all 100% free.

    Sorry but Polycount isn't the place to find pirated software. Personally, I would give blender a serious shot. It has some amazing sculpting tools these days.

    From the rules:
    The Polycount Forum does not condone software piracy

    Polycount does not condone piracy nor do we allow links to pirated games or software. We understand the piracy discussion, however Polycount will not be used as a platform for speaking out in favor of piracy, thus threads centering around piracy may be removed/deleted. If you are linking directly to the source for illegal copies of software you will be permanently banned without further warnings.

    Downloading a torrent isnt illegal anywhere(might be wrong) it's more a case of what the torrent contains :P

    As said above, pirating software of this sort is illegal, and not something I would recommend doing, however, from the sound of your post I'd say it sounds as though you purchased a legitimate license a while ago and lost it when your computer had to be wiped, correct?

    If that is the case then simply give the pixologic support team a call, I had the same problem a while ago when one of my hard drives died, they can deactivate the license on their end allowing you to reactivate it on your new computer, however, that is assuming what you owned before was a legitimate copy, if it was that'll work.

    get in touch with pixologic, give them details about how and when you purchased zbrush and hopefully they can straighten it out. if you didn't buy it, you're on your own we don't discuss piracy on the boards.
