Luxology has released MODO 701, a latest version if their 3D package with significant improvement to modeling, sculpting, animation, effects and much more.

MODO 701 new features include:

  • Procedural particle engine with an easy to use pre-set workflow
  • Audio playback and a sound channel modifier, bringing animations to life
  • Schematic improvements, reducing scene graph complexity
  • Dedicated dynamics simulation layer, significantly improving performance
  • Simplified complexity of materials and layered shaders
  • Large scene performance improvements by as much as 175x
  • Preview render synchronization improvements, over 50x faster in large scenes
  • New Python interpreter, making python execution many times faster
  • Unlimited network rendering

“MODO 701 is a big step forward and has a number of new features that will help me in my day-to-day work,” comments Richard Yot, Itchy Animation. “It’s things like preview’s AA filters which now allow it to be used as a hassle-free production renderer. This means cleaner renders with minimal effort. The rewritten dynamics engine also now calculates simulations much more rapidly and accurately.”

New users can buy the current version of modo 601 at the current price of US$1,195.00 and then get a free MODO 701 upgrade at launch.
