Neobarok is a crazy mixture between Sculpris, 3DCoat, ZBrush, Groboto, Houdini and Polybrush.
Itīs a feature rich full blown sculpting and animation/rigging program with OpenGL3 GPU/Multicore support and features Iīve never heard of like volume preserving deformers (check the video) in a nice PBR viewport with bloom, reflection and refraction.
You can do most important modeling, sketching, sculpting (with dynamic remeshing and tearing) and CAD features (assemblies, boolean) with it.
Hydraulics and Muscle rigging, animation and texture animation is possible, too.
The first beta is available now and a lot of other new functions will be added in the future.

Looks nice..havenīt installed yet ..but I will test it.
volume preserving deformations, well..think it is close to lw brush deform, or wings3d deformations..wich respect the volume overall when moving deforming a part, if you would use magnet..it will not respect the underlying shape, this will do that it seems, and the same with wings3d magnet deform tools I think, it would maybe be equal to as using a spline deformer or px_bezier curves with its poly tubes around it..but working on the node and curves to deform.

Thanks for the heads up on this.

Hey Prometheus, have you had a chance to test this yet? Considering the banter elsewhere in this forum section about Polybrush, I was/am hesitant to try this one out.

This looks impressive... Quirky creative, very original and free! The muscles and hydraulics are intriguing ... Can they be exported / animated?

So much to learn... So little time. I'm currently still exploring the full potential of 3rd Powers booleans. Utterly amazing.

This program is a bit in its infancy but after trying it out, I do think it has potential. I really love its display and the realtime refraction on transparency is really cool. As far as I can see, it didn't have a undo yet so that really needs addressed.

Intimacy? is that right, being from sweden I am not sure..but it doesnīt sound right...shouldnīt it be infancy? please..hit me on my fingers if I am wrong :)

lol yes, I was on mobile so my phone must have autocorrected. Infancy!

Yay :) I wasnīt completly wrong then, good to know..mobile auto correction, will have to use that as an excuse for my english when things go bad..not to say that you did:D

Still havenīt had any time to test Neobarok though..gonna be busy with some spring cleaning.

I agree it seems to offer some interesting functionality, but the UX needs some major rethought in places, it's neither particularly discoverable nor intuitive (IMO). Certain key missing elements like Undo, as Steve (hrgiger) noted, are sorely missed during early experimentation. Their absence makes the experience all that more frustrating. The app seems to be suffering a bit from "developer-as-UI-designer syndrome" w.r.t. UX design and implementation priorities. I just _really_ hope the dev(s) didn't make the classic (and very painful) mistake of thinking undo can be easily added after the fact.

Neobarok looks very promising, so long as the dev(s) can sort out the basic UX and undo/history issues early enough.
