San Mateo-based Luxology has announced Modo 302, the most recent version of its 3D content creation software, which adds new natural lighting capabilities, additional layered Photoshop file support, an animation Track View, new modeling tools and other enhancements.
The update is free to current users of Modo 301. Luxology adds it is also making available the first version of the Modo File I/O SDK, which allows developers to import or export data directly from Modo.
Modo 302 combines a real-time subdivision surface modeling engine with sculpting, painting and rendering technologies for the creation of 3D content. Modo can also animate objects within a scene, and import motion and deformation data from other software applications.
Luxology president and co-founder Brad Peebler said, "This is the most comprehensive free update in Modo’s history. Modo 302’s workflow is smoother than ever with a host of carefully crafted user interface refinements, major new animation controls and a battery of new features.”
