They created the software to expand their own toolsets, and was first used as a complete product on King Kong. The beta was released in May , followed by version 1. On August 6, , Autodesk announced the acquisition of Skymatter Inc. Models created within the program typically start as a polygon mesh that can be manipulated with a variety of different tools. A model can be subdivided to increase its resolution and the number of polygons available to sculpt with. Using layers the user is able to sculpt and mould their 3D model without making permanent changes. As a detailing app, Mudbox can import and export.
Known Issues in this Release Description If the level of the source model is not the current level when extracting a map, the detail of lower sculpt layers will be missing. Ensure you display the required subdivision level before extracting the map, or select the current level in the Extract Texture Maps window to get the correct result.
