At an event hosted by The Foundry and sponsored by HP, Nvidia and Digital Tutors, The Foundry revealed that MODO 901 – purportedly the most advanced edition of the 3D app yet – is now being distributed to customers.
“For MODO 901, we took a look at what artists want to do, how they want to do it, and the environments in which they do it,” said Shane Griffith, MODO product marketing manager at The Foundry.
“We found that artists need to do more, they need to do it faster, and they need to do it against tighter deadlines and resources. In some cases they work independently, and in others, they work in a pre-existing pipeline or design workflow.
“Against this backdrop, we knew it was critical for 901 to deliver powerful new tools, scale with larger scenes and perform faster across the board to truly meet our artists’ needs.”
The latest update to MODO includes the integration of the award-winning MeshFusion, new progressive texture baking, new and improved tools for everyday modelling tasks, better ways of working with both regular and UDIM multi-tiled UVs, and layered multi-resolution sculpting.
It also offers physically based materials, vector-based graphics support and improved painting, as well as many other new features.
