Modo 13 introduces native GPU rendering with its first iteration of AMD Radeon ProRender alongside AMD’s popular denoising features. This hardware-agnostic, physically-based rendering engine leverages open industry standards to utilize a variety of GPU and CPU hardware.
With Modo 13, character artists can now non-destructively control layers of animation or easily override existing actions, while masking with the new Animation Layer system allows for individual aspects of an animation to be isolated and uniquely defined.
Other key features for Modo 13.0 include:
Modo Bridge: This feature now supports Unity and adds the same functionality that was present in the Unreal Bridge through a shared interface to streamline interaction with real-time scene creation.
MeshFusion adds Kit Fusing: Artists now have the ability to define only a portion of a mesh to be used for creating boolean operations.
Arrays: A powerful new extension to Modo’s procedural system that allows for advanced storage, manipulation, and output of data in a variety of forms, further enabling what technical artists can engineer in Modo.
