Foundry Modo 13.2

What is Modo?

Modo is a creative 3D modeling, texturing and rendering tool available for Mac, Windows and Linux. With Modo, artists can explore and develop ideas without the steep learning curve.

Modo features an artist-friendly set of tools that let you focus on creation rather than construction. The photorealistic viewport, award-winning MeshFusion Boolean toolset, Python and C++ APIs and flexible tool assembly system all mean that you have total control over your projects.

Out of the box, Modo offers modeling, sculpting, texturing, painting and photorealistic rendering in one cohesive, easy-to-use content creation package, with unlimited network rendering capabilities included.

What’s new in Modo?

The Graph Editor has been improved to include velocity and speed curves as well as additional enhancements.

The new Channel Modifier, Twist Extractor, allows riggers to get the twist of a joint relative to its parent.

AxF 1.1 and 1.4 are now supported, allowing more complex materials and presents to be used in an efficient workflow.

mPath is a new renderer in Modo that enhances speed and quality. The new framework lets users take advantage of modern technical advances without sacrificing legacy compatibility.

Modo offers a unique combination of robust tools and a flexible system, including integrated sculpting and retopology functionality. With automated options and supported UDIM workflows, you won’t be stuck with tedious UV tasks either thanks to full integration with modeling and selection workflows.

Express your artistic ideas using brush-based sculpting tools to intuitively rough out volumes and add multiple levels of fine detail with speed. Create convincing materials with drag-and-drop presets or the high library of realistic physically-based materials.

Once you’ve constructed your idea, enjoy photorealistic rendering at limitless resolutions and even use network rendering at no extra cost.

Modo is available now as both Modo Perpetual and Modo Annual from CAD Software Direct.

Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood with MODO 901

Ingenuity Studios put MODO 901 through its paces, along with HIERO, MARI, NUKE and NUKE STUDIO to bring pop megastar, Taylor Swift’s latest video to life.


On May 17, at 8:00 p.m., the Billboard Music Awards rocked pop culture with the premier of one of the most anticipated videos of the year, Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.” Within 24 hours, the video broke the Vevo world record, with 20.1 million views.

While Taylor heavily promoted the video on Twitter in the weeks leading up to the Billboard Awards, the team at Ingenuity Studios methodically (and slightly feverishly) pounded away, creating the visual effects behind this film-noir style video. From trons to explosions to the London sky-line, Ingenuity Studios put MODO 901 through its paces, along with HIERO, MARI, NUKE and NUKE STUDIO, to create what Forbes Magazine called “an action-packed epic, and a major production by anyone’s standards.”
