modo 202 at Siggraph

Luxology this week debuted modo 202, an update to its 3D modeling, painting and rendering software. Boasting a peak rendering speed that is more than 40 percent faster than its previous version. Version 202 features streamlined workflow with improvements to the render window, including a convenient way to interactively adjust gamma display and a handy way to flip between 10 images for render review. It also offers enhancements to the modeling portion of its suite, including a new create SubDiv option for the popular Pen tool and a thicken tool for adding inner or outer thickness to geometry. In addition, a new object-to-object baking capability captures the surface detail of a complex object and automatically applies it to a simpler object for real-time applications. The application also improves 3D painting behavior, features a new visible image ink display model, adds the ability to see scene lights in Advanced OpenGL, and can interactively adjust the F-Stop, focal length and focal distance of cameras. modo 202 is priced at $900 with upgrades priced at $400 for registered users of any earlier version.
