Praise for modo 301
“The appeal of modo has always been its workflow, it's an environment that just feels right,” said Dan Ablan of AGA Digital Studios Inc. and 3D Garage.com. “What is impressive to me as a trainer is that Luxology is preserving and enhancing the user interface as they pour functionality into the product.”
“Luxology has produced a real 'gem' for visualization work,” said Neil Hayes, freelance design visualization artist. “Some features I love are the improved snapping, stencil mapping and photometric lights. Indeed, modo 301 delivers on so many fronts that I think it has the potential to become 'the tool' for design visualization.”
“modo has always been known as a great SubD modeler, and now Luxology is evolving the very nature of modeling as they add sculpting and continue the seamless integration of painting and rendering into the 3d modeling process,” said Jason Clark of SubDivision Modeling.
