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.
