Luxology MODO 701 SP4 (MAC OSX / WiN) | 399.4 mb

Luxology has officially launched MODO 701 - the latest entry into its 3D software, featuring significant enhancements to core functionality in the modelling, sculpting, animation, effects and rendering workflows.

MODO 701 highlights

- Procedural particle engine with an easy to use pre-set workflow
- Audio playback and a sound channel modifier, bringing animations to life
- Schematic improvements, reducing scene graph complexity
- Dedicated dynamics simulation layer, significantly improving performance
- Simplified complexity of materials and layered shaders
- Large scene performance improvements by as much as 175x
- Preview render synchronisation improvements, over 50x faster in large scenes
- New Python interpreter, making python execution many times faster
- Unlimited network rendering

The following list is a review of changes and corrections included in MODO 701 Service Pack 4:
