Moving Up from ZBrushCore to the full ZBrush

Moving up from ZBrushCore to ZBrush is not free. 

  • All ZBrushCore perpetual licenses receive a $100 discount off the purchase of a ZBrush license. 
  • ZBrushCore subscriptions are not eligible for the Move Up program.

Because ZBrushCore is a commercial license, it is not possible to move up to an academic ZBrush license.  All moves are for the commercial ZBrush license.

To move up to ZBrush, simply log into your My Licenses account and then click the button to Move Up to ZBrush.

You will then be taken through the shopping cart and checkout processes.  When doing this it is critical that you do not change your email address!  Doing so would break the link between the ZBrushCore and ZBrush licenses, and as a result you would not receive a serial number for ZBrush.

Alternatively, you could purchase one of the ZBrush subscriptions -- either monthly or six months.  While you would not receive a discount, the up front cost is a lot lower than purchasing a perpetual license.

Thank you.
