3D modelling and sculpting tool undergoes significant upgrades

Middleware outfit Luxolgy has revealed Modo 701, offering a significantly bolstered version of its 3D modelling tech.

Modo 701, due for release in the coming weeks, focuses on upgrades to the tool's modelling, sculpting, animation, effects and rendering workflow ability.

"We’ve made such big improvements to the existing architecture of the software in MODO 701 that 601 users will notice a huge leap forward," said Brad Peebler, co-founder of Luxology. "We’ve also added some really cool functionality like the new particle system. This release will truly deliver on the philosophy that perfection comes through refinement. As always, we have pushed the limits and can’t wait to find out what you all think.”

Modo 701 introduces a new procedural particle engine with a user friendly pre-set workflow, audio playback and a sound channel modifier, schematic improvements, dedicated dynamics simulation layers,
