COLLADA for modo 401

Developer Luxology has announced a upcoming COLLADA plug-in for its imminent 3D rendering suite, modo 401. COLLADA is an XML scheme, used to ensure that art output created with one program can be edited by another, where normally filetypes would be incompatible. The plug-in will support layered transform stacks, and text profiles of modo items, channels and animation envelopes.

Users will additionally be able to edit profiles using regular text or XML tools, and export profiles for two third-party rendering suites, Maya and 3DS Max. Luxology intends to release the plug-in for free alongside modo 401, as well as the File I/O SDK, for the sake of expanding format support. A formal announcement for modo 401 is scheduled to occur on March 23rd.
