Luxology® LLC, an independent technology company developing next-generation 3D content creation software, today announced that the industry’s leading developers of pre-built 3D content, including DAZ 3D, Dosch Design and Digital Juice are relying on modo to build a wide array of high-quality 3D content for their customers. These content developers chose modo, an award-winning modeling, painting and rendering software, for its speed, artist-friendly workflow and superior toolset.
“modo is a favorite among leading companies that are upping the bar on what some people might call 3D ‘clip art’,” said Brad Peebler, president of Luxology. “The modeling, painting and rendering power of modo is perfect for creating models that are used throughout the 3D industry. Furthermore, the technical requirements of these companies, that base their businesses on delivering high quality 3D assets, is helping to drive the continued development of modo.”
One example of modo’s modeling power can been seen in the popular Victoria 4 female character offered by DAZ 3D to its large community of 3D enthusiasts. Victoria 4 is the latest generation of what is now an iconic female 3D model, for which a staggering array of props, hairstyles, clothing and scenes are also available for purchase.
Dosch Design is a long respected leader in providing themed collections of 3D models and seamless textures that exhibit an impressive attention to detail and accuracy. This German company offers automobiles, trucks, cranes, appliances, ships, aircraft, roads, human figures, sports subjects, and an extensive line of 3D models for the architectural and package design industries. “modo is a favorite tool among our artists and plays a vital role in our content creation process,” said Sebastian Dosch. “We pride ourselves on producing true-to-life 3D representations and modo gives us the modeling and texturing control we need to excel in high quality 3D model construction.”
“modo was central to the latest refinement of Victoria, which we believe is the single most popular female form available on the planet,” said Dan Farr, president of DAZ 3D. “Our modeling standards are exacting and modo enabled us to perform recent improvements to Victoria that offers a new level of realism for hundreds of thousands of customers.”
Digital Juice is a leader in providing royalty-free professional animations, stock footage, music, layered graphics, templates and clip art to the broadcast, video editing and digital presentation communities. The company offers extensive support for HD, including jumpbacks, motion design elements and animated backgrounds which are typically 15-30 seconds in length. “We use modo exclusively for all our modeling needs in our animation libraries,” said David Hebel, CEO of Digital Juice. “I've been very impressed with the speed and quality our 3D artists are able to achieve since switching to modo.”
