MODO 10 Series FAQs


What’s new in MODO 10.0?

MODO 10.0 offers significantly enhanced workflows for creating real-time content for games, or for other immersive interactive experiences like virtual reality. Highlights include the ability to author in MODO and be confident that your assets will look virtually the same in Unity or Unreal; a streamlined, repeatable texture baking workflow that takes the pain out of putting realistic detail into your real-time assets; and new ways to export to popular engines featuring simple, automated steps that minimize the need to recreate work.


What’s new in MODO 10.1?

Artists can now iterate more freely; create more variations in less time; and respond to change requirements without having to start from scratch.


What’s new in MODO 10.2?

With the third and final installment, MODO 10.2, MODO now offers an unmatched set of 3D asset creation tools that provide the ideal environment for exploring creative options. Highlights include a faster, easier MeshFusion toolset that works hand in hand with an extended procedural modeling system; the ability to package, share and reuse assemblies; and new automatic retopology.
