Modo features

Modo 3d modeling tool in action

Modeling

Modo® offers a unique combination of best-in-class direct modeling tools working hand-in-hand with a highly robust and flexible procedural modeling system. Additionally, Modo features the award-winning MeshFusion Boolean tools, integrated sculpting and retopology functionality.

Modo's UV workflow in action

UV workflows

Take the drudgery out of tedious UV creation tasks, with a highly 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.

Modo's powerful sculpting and modeling tool

Sculpting

Bring your artistic expression to 3D modeling, as you use Modo's integrated brush-based sculpting tools to intuitively rough out volumes and add multiple levels of fine detail with speed.

Modo, powerful shading and modeling tool for 3D animation and design

Shading

Streamline your workflow with fast, flexible layer-based and nodal shading systems for building sophisticated, convincing materials with ease. Drag-and-drop presets let you quickly develop the look you want, or simply select from a huge library of highly realistic physically-based materials.

See how Modo's powerful rendering engine makes your workflow faster

Rendering

Enjoy photorealistic rendering at amazing speeds and limitless resolutions—even network rendering is free. Modo's production-proven, physically-based renderer offers a rare blend of speed and quality.

Baking for 3d models in Modo

Baking

Review textures as you bake and watch them refine progressively. Modo also allows you to tweak settings and make surface changes without waiting for a final render, and it accurately bakes to Unity or Unreal standards with no extra tools required.

Modo feature rigging for 3D animation

Rigging

Featuring a non-destructive, non-linear toolset and fully-integrated modular workflow, Modo's flexible node-based rigging system lets you easily create, edit, manage and reuse complex character rigs.

Modo for 3D modeling and animation

Animation

Incorporating traditional animation techniques applied in innovative ways, Modo's 3D animation framework is highly customizable to meet the most demanding of production challenges.

Modo is able to use powerful effects tools on your 3d models

Effects

Modo's rule-based, directable particles work together with the fully-integrated rigid and soft bodies, and procedural shattering, to let you create compelling dynamic simulations in less time.

Find out more about the hair and fur features in Modo

Hair and Fur

Modo lets you create and manipulate realistic hair, fur, grass, feathers and other fiber-based effects as actual geometry that can be sculpted, shaded and rendered directly in your scene.

The camera and projection tools in Modo allow powerful rendering and real time animation review

Camera and projection tools

Modo’s advanced tools for virtual camera creation and digital matte painting are perfect for set extensions and product placement shots, while the spherical camera rig lets you work with 360° video.

Hundreds of useful preset modules in Modo make it easier and faster to model and sculpt

Presets

Segment your work into more manageable parts, avoid repetitive modeling tasks and create repeatable looks with saveable, shareable, reusable assemblies and presets. Plus, convert a series of procedural modeling operations into a new specialized tool to share with others.

Collaboration with important engines for Modo

Collaboration and customization

With in-viewport support for Unity, Unreal-compatible PBR materials and built-in export tools, Modo delivers a true WYSIWYG asset creation experience for games and VR authoring. Plus, support for a wide range industry-standard file formats, together with Python and macro scripting, means it’s easy to make Modo work in your pipeline.
