Foundry MODO 701 SP3 Build 64278 [Intel]-Mac OS X | 188MB

Leading computer graphics and visual effects software developer, Luxology has launched MODO 701. Over the last year, the development team has listened to a huge amount of customer feedback and subsequently made significant enhancements to core functionality in the modelling, sculpting, animation, effects and rendering workflows.

Additions and corrections

Updates fur effect amplitude after each fur evaluation step.

Fixes bug with surface visibility evaluation in some cases.

Adds support for particle parameters such as age, size and velocity to replica rendering.

Regenerates vector from polygon if evaluation detects that the number of vertices has changed.

Allows Python to support notifiers and addresses other Python issues.

Adds a utility function to compute how the diffuse coefficient should be scaled to account for energy conservation. Modifies Preview and final rendering to use this new function to adjust pixel values in diffuse coefficient render outputs. Previously, final rendering only adjusted the diffuse coefficient to account for Fresnel, but not for energy lost to normal specular reflection and transparency, and Preview did not account for any energy conservation.

Adds Max OpenGL Polygon Count preference. The default count is 1000000. Changes mesh.psubSubdiv command to display a warning dialog when GL count exceeds the max GL count.

Invalidates the shader tree for light visibility changes, forcing Preview to update.

Watches for mesh channel change events and invalidates the fur cache when that happens.

Fixes UV interpolation with loop slice when a polygon is sliced by a grid pattern.

Fixes a bug with join average in symmetry mode.

Moves textures and texture locators to their groups in the item list and shader tree to avoid cluttering of the scene.

Removes the mask argument from the item.delete command from the item menu, fixing weird multi selection issues between locators and shaders.

Fixes render artifacts in volumetric lights using light gradient inputs in the light shader.

When frames are selected outside the loaded frame range, morphing alembic data was incorrectly using cached states. When a frame is selected before the range, we now use the setup state, and when selected beyond the end, we use the final state and supply the deformation as an output TriGroup channel.

Adds render outputs to show the diffuse amount and diffuse energy conservation (which accounts for reflected and transmitted light). The product of these two outputs and the recently added diffuse color output results in the diffuse coefficient. These outputs increase the possibilities for postprocessing. Changes the diffuse energy conservation output from monochrome to color since the amount may be different for red, green, and blue.

Fixes item visibility and replicated surface orientations.

Fixes shaders generated by geometry cache baking.

Fixes various random crashes related to the command history.

Fixes bug where Preview would not update if 'Remove Base Surface' was enabled on the fur material.

Fixes bug where static meshes didn't have tri-mesh wireframe overlays and therefore didnt show item selection highlighting.

Fixes bug where the audio start time would get incorrectly clamped.

Avoids texture evaluation for GL in non-textured views without displacement.

Expands 'element.over' of the view3dservice query to support items.

Fixes potential crash with the 'poly.subdivide' command related to using a geometry constraint in command line mode.

Fixes bug where using a texture as a group mask would make the mesh disappear in some scenes.

Fixes bug where volumetric dissolve over 200 would cause the volume to render solid.

Fixes bug where selecting materials in Preview would incorrectly show the embedded items under locked presets or locked groups.

Fixes bug where the vertMap.math command would fail on missing vmap values, by preventing the operation from filling poly and edge discontinuities and un-set continuous values with 0, or in some cases, uninitialized floats.

Mac: Fixes bad redraw issues with OS X 10.9. May also fix hard to reproduce redraw issues with earlier OS X versions.

Adds optional argument to lx.eval() (and related functions) for the exec flags. Allows flags to be passed through a plug-in command's execution method.

Updates the command schematic.view to use the current 'selected' group, not the active group, otherwise the command would not switch to the selected group from another workspace because the workspace was the active group.

Fixes normals in final render when rendering with cylinders (fixes specular reflection on fur).
