MODOSHOP--I Can't Believe I Didn't Mention This Already

Postby EAllen » Mon Sep 13, 2010 3:56 pm

Recently, Steve Kaplan joined AN to set the record straight on Guild matters, and he and I got into a mini-discussion on Modo. What I forgot to mention was this video podcast on pixelcorps.tv, which I watch from time to time (when I have time . . . ha, what a concept) to strength my Modo skills!

Excellent video podcast with excellent Modo tips. Lots of good stuff there, pays to check a few episodes out, no matter how pro you are at CG.

Great find EAllen! What's also great about Modo is the user base and how open and friendly they are about sharing techniques and tricks. I've said it before, this is the best Sub-D modeling package out there, bar-none. Model, Sculpt, Paint, and they've introduced and are expanding on their animating and rendering. Their render engine is outstanding.

I couldn't recommend giving this tool a try any stronger.

Thanks Steve.

First opportunity, I may actually just go and buy the damn thing.
