With quicker rendering times, best-in-class modeling solutions, and seamless integration into games engines, Modo is the content creation toolset for making game assets. If you're an artist that needs to work fast, Modo’s toolset, coupled with its speed, is everything you need in the race to craft compelling game experiences on increasingly tight timeframes.
Whether you're a small studio working on an indie project, or a larger AAA team with a big art department, our toolset allows you to stay ahead of the curve in your pipeline.
Making your game asset will be both easier and fasterWith a unique combination of best-in-class direct modeling tools, a highly robust and flexible procedural modeling system, and the award-winning MeshFusion Boolean toolset, Modo allows you to create clean, optimized meshes in less time.
You'll spend less time on UVsModo takes the drudgery out of UV creation tasks, with an efficient built-in toolset that offers many automated options, supports UDIM workflows, and—unlike some other 3D content creation tools—integrates fully with modeling and selection workflows.
Your assets will always be game engine readyWith Modo, you’ll spend less time rebuilding things after transferring to Unity or Unreal. All your real-time assets come in with textures, shader settings, and anything else you tweaked in Modo.
Your everyday workflow will be fully optimizedModular baking workflows that can be setup as time-saving custom templates, procedural modeling capabilities, and everything needed for asset creation in one place, means Modo will make your day-to-day workflow faster and more efficient.
Unreal BridgeWork in an uninterrupted flow between Modo and Unreal Engine, with the Unreal Bridge providing a bidirectional connection between both applications, allowing entire scenes, or selected elements of a scene, to be pushed and updated.
Vertex Normal & BakingEditing vertex normals and baking in Modo just got much easier. Modo 11.1 now supports object space normal map baking; useful when creating normal maps for static objects in real-time applications.
Modelling workflowTrue to its reputation as the best modeling solution for creating singular assets, the modeling tools in Modo 11.1 have undergone a number of upgrades to provide even greater modeling power.
‘My favorite thing about Modo is the powerful base toolset and the ease of customizability. I spend a good deal of time streamlining my work, and the fact that it’s so easy to make collections of macros, complex hotkey setups, help me create more - faster’
‘With speed and versatility being an indie’s most important demands, Modo’s ability to let you focus on creation and to tailor the tools to your needs makes it the go-to software for taking 3D models from concept to the game engine.’
Connor McCampbell, Environment Artist, BattleCry Studios
“Modo is absolutely, objectively, the most artist-friendly 3D package out there, in large part due to its best-in-class modeling and UV tools. If you are involved in creating art for games in any capacity, you know how much time that takes up.”
Remedy Entertainment’s mission is clear: to create cinematic blockbuster action games that break media boundaries and push the envelope of 3D character technology and visual effects. No easy task, but so far they’ve been nailing it, with titles like Max Payne 2, Alan Wake, and most recently, Quantum Break to their name.
