Luxology LLC announced the immediate availability of modo™ 302, the newest version of its award-winning, artist-friendly 3D content creation software. Free for registered modo 301 customers, modo 302 adds new natural lighting capabilities, additional layered Photoshop file support, an animation Track View, new modeling tools and numerous other enhancements. Luxology is also making available the first version of the modo File I/O software development kit (SDK), which allows developers to import or export data directly from modo. modo 302 is available for both Mac OSX and Windows.
"This is the most comprehensive free update in modo’s history," said Brad Peebler, president and co-founder of Luxology. "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."
"modo 302 is packed with enhancements that make it an even greater asset to our game production pipeline," said David Vasquez of Mainland Gaming LLC. "We are particularly impressed with modo’s new File I/O SDK, which streamlines our workflow by allowing us to export Collada content from modo directly into Terathon Software’s C4 Engine."
