Modo 701

MODO 701 Essential Training |

modo — комплексное, не требующее доработок решение с по-настоящему элегантными технологическими находками, зверской производительностью и совершенным подходом к рабочему процессу, включающее возможности для 3D-лепки, анимации и даже сетевого рендеринга.

The release of Modo 301 on 10 September 2007 added animation and sculpting to its toolset. The animation tools include being able to animate cameras, lights, morphs and geometry as well as being able to import .mdd files. Sculpting in Modo 301 is done through mesh based and image based sculpting (vector displacement maps) or a layered combination of both.

Modo 302, was released on 3 April 2008 with some tool updates, more rendering and animation features and a physical sky and sun model. Modo 302 was a free upgrade for existing users. Modo 303 was skipped in favor of the development of Modo 401.

Modo 401 shipped on 18 June 2009. This release has many animation and rendering enhancements and is newly available on 64-bit Windows. On 6 October 2009, Modo 401 SP2 was released followed by Modo 401 SP3 on 26 January 2010 and SP5 on 14 July of the same year.]5[

Modo 501 shipped on 15 December 2010. This version was the first to run on 64-bit Mac OS X. It contains support for Pixar Subdivision Surfaces, faster rendering and a visual connection editor for creating re-usable animation rigs.

Modo 601 shipped on 29 February 2012. This release offers additional character animation tools, dynamics, a general purpose system of deformers, support for retopology modeling and numerous rendering enhancements.

Class 2: In order for us to quickly populate our scene with particles, we need to understand the basic simulation system in Modo. This week, we’ll explore the the different simulation types, their features and the best production pipeline for adding simulations in to our scene. Through this process of learning how to generate simulations in Modo, you’ll learn how to simulate rigid body dynamics in Modo.

Class 3: Now that we have a basic understanding of how the Modo simulation engine operates, lets begin to explore the different emitters types in Modo. The array of emitters types will allow us to create a huge spectrum of effects, so lets explore these unique items in Modo. Emitters, Radial, Curve, Surface, Source.

  • Moves shader group mask with the 'FX' context under the FX item during preset loading.
  • Adds 'cumulus' volume particle type for cloud layer simulations.
  • Updates popover dismissal behaviors. Popup controls always handle a click on themselves that also dismisses a popover/popup, thus making it easy to quickly click between popups. Clicking to dismiss a popover now dismisses all popovers up to the window clicked in, thus making it easier to clear nested popovers. Adds functions to force simple popovers to dismiss via click-off or roll-off instead of their default dismissal behavior. Point-at popovers are not affected, and are always click-off. Clicking in a 3D view to dismiss a popover/popup now lets the 3D view also handle the click, rather than the dismissal eating it. This allows users to go right from the Snapping popover to using a tool, without needing to do a second click after the popover is dismissed. Adds a preference to change the default simple popover dismissal behavior. Moves palette and popup/popover transparency preferences to the UI section.
