Luxology announced that modo, a leading subdivision surface and polygonal 3D modeling platform, is compatible 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, added 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.
The evaluation version of modo 102 is free and available for download at www.modo3d.com. modo 102 is available through Luxology and its worldwide partners. modo ships on a single disc supporting both Mac OS X and Windows, and sells for a suggested retail price of $895, with an introductory price of $695 available through June 30.
