Faster than ever

Despite the fact that nearly every one of MODO’s features has had an overhaul and some completely new features have been added, it’s the speed of working that gets the biggest plaudits in this new iteration of the product.

Put simply, it’s speed, speed, speed in 701. The new release flies in OpenGL view. Once complex meshes have loaded, it is genuinely stunning how capable MODO 701 is at handling large data sets. There are also amazing speed increases in preview mode and during rendering, making the upgrade worth the money for those enhancements alone.

The retopology tools also improve on speed and accuracy, and brand-new tools like the Contour tool add to MODO’s already extensive feature set. Arguably the biggest new feature is the particle system, which makes MODO 701 an attractive option for VFX and motion graphics work. A Linux version will soon join the existing Mac and Windows versions.
