Performance and efficiency improvements
Modo 11.0 delivers accelerated performance across a number of key areas: support for OpenSubdiv 3 delivers faster deformations; animation caching speeds up display; localized evaluation for MeshFusion improves interactivity; and instances are drawn faster. A large number of workflow enhancements also increase artist productivity, including improvements to the game exporter, the ability to duplicate elements while transforming them interactively, and new selection methods in the Item List.
Modeling workflow enhancements
Reinforcing its position as a best-in-class modeling solution, Modo 11.0 offers new MeshFusion features that include the ability to cut, copy and paste Fusion items; enhancements to Auto Retopology including a new Adaptive mode and Curvature metric; a number of improvements to procedural modeling workflows; a brush preview for painting and sculpting tools; and a new customizable Tool HUD for faster access to the tools you use the most.
Better out of-the-box experience
With a streamlined installation experience and login-based licensing; included rigs for procedural modeling; new render setting presets and better defaults that make it easier to create high-quality, noise-free renderings without specialist expertise; and an emphasis on fixing known issues, Modo 11.0 offers a better out-of-the-box experience. Other improvements include easier access to your recent projects, training videos and online help; and the ability to run Modo in safe mode for debugging purposes.
License Types and Options
Modo comes as individual or floating licenses, and with the new Modo Maintenance and Modo Subscription options licenses can be tailored for any team, project or assignment.
These are traditional perpetual Modo licenses that are tied to a single user. This license is great for a single user who may need to run Modo on more than one machine but at different times. One year Maintenance is included with new perpetual licenses.
These perpetual licenses allow a given number of users on a network to run Modo at the same time. One year Maintenance is included with new perpetual licenses. Floating licenses are great for:
- users who want to make the application available to as many people as possible without buying the application for everyone.
- users who are happy to share a specific number of licenses which are available to everyone on the network. Licenses are distributed on a first come first served basis. When the user quits the application the license becomes available for someone else to use.
Note: These floating licenses are different from RLM floating licenses for other Foundry products and are not managed from a central license server. Please contact our Sales team if you are interested in RLM floating licenses for Modo.
New Modo Maintenance option
With Modo Maintenance attached to your individual or floating Modo license you will get every update and new release while your Maintenance remains valid, as soon as it is available. If you stop paying for Maintenance you keep your working license on its last update. To stay current with the latest technology you should renew Modo Maintenance. You can enjoy the flexibility of login-based licensing* to work where you want – no more tedious license transfers.
New Modo Subscription option*
With Modo Subscription you get the latest technology for a monthly or annual time period. You will get every update and new release while your Subscription remains valid, as soon as it is available. You can enjoy the flexibility of login-based licensing to work where you want – forget tedious license transfers. Plan your Subscription budget with a set of flexible payment options. When the period you paid for is up the Modo Subscription license will no longer work. Maintenance license option not included.
* Login-based licensing and Subscription requires that you connect to the Internet at least once every 30 days.
