Luxology LLC, an independent technology company developing high-end 3D content creation tools, announced today that Eden FX is integrating modo, a powerful new subdivision surface and polygonal modeling platform, into its production pipeline. An award-winning visual effects studio, Eden FX chose modo for its incredible speed, advanced toolset and intuitive workflow.
"We were very excited to integrate modo into our fast-paced production environment," said John Gross, co-president of Eden FX. "We always have several projects in various stages of production in our pipeline, and modo's sheer speed and seamless integration allow us to create great visual effects without missing a beat. It's obvious that modo is based on Luxology's wealth of knowledge and experience with today's community of 3D artists."
"The modo development team focused intensely on the product's integration capabilities - we wanted to deliver an optimal tool that adds speed and functionality, without any disruption," said Brad Peebler, president of Luxology. "It's very rewarding to know that an award-winning company like Eden FX is benefiting from modo's power and flexibility to deliver professional visual effects in a wide range of styles, on time and budget."
modo is a robust 3D modeling toolset designed to improve the polygonal and subdivision surface modeling aspects for 3D artists working on games, films, TV and Web productions. modo's real-time subdivision surface modeling engine and superior level of customizability, which includes hundreds of production-oriented tools, make it flexible enough to model everything ranging from organics and hard surfaces to low-resolution real-time meshes and high-resolution film models.
