Luxologys modo Ready for Apples Move to Intel ProcessorsUnique architecture and clean code make modo highly adaptable (June 10, 2005)
Luxology, LLC, the creators of modo, a leading subdivision surface and polygonal 3D modeling platform, today announced modos compatibility with Apples new Intel Processor-based Macs. modos highly adaptable architecture will enable Luxologys customers to access this advanced technology as soon as its released.
?We had a programmer working on this immediately following Apples announcement and within 20 minutes modo was not only compiled as a universal binary but actually running on the Intel-based Macs, said Brad Peebler, president of Luxology. ?modos development structure means there is no migration path to an Intel-based Mac. Were already there.
?modo was built as a mach-o application using XCode from the very first line of code, said Matt Craig, senior engineer for Luxology. ?Our next-generation architecture and clean code allowed us to start running on Intel-based Macs the same day it was announced, just like with the G5 before it.
modo is the fastest, most advanced subdivision surface modeling environment available. Specifically designed to help 3D artists working on games, films, TV, print, architecture and Web productions, modo enables artists to accomplish more in less time. These advantages are made possible through a unique combination of a cutting edge toolset with painless pipeline integration, advanced software ergonomics, and a streamlined learning path.
