Modo

Learn the ins and outs of the powerful 3D design software Modo. Pluralsight’s in-depth Modo training will you help you unlock the knowledge needed to create compelling animations, renderings and models. Learn from expert-authors who walk you through the tool and show you how to use it in a hands-on, practical way.

Courses
The demand these days for photorealistic CGI is exploding. This course, Creating a Photorealistic Beverage Ad in MODO, will show you the ins and outs of creating a stunning, photorealistic liquor bottle image from scratch. First, you'll explore how to create a reference image. Next, you'll...
Creating a cartoon character from scratch in 3D can be a difficult task. In this course, Creating Cartoon Characters in MODO and ZBrush, you will learn to do just that while creating your own cat-like charismatic character. First, you will learn how to start sculpting the model in ZBrush using...
Maya artists can enhance their work by integrating MODO into their pipeline, but while there are many similarities between the two programs, there are also significant differences. This course, MODO for Maya Artists, will help you understand how they can work together. We'll start by discussing...
In this MODO tutorial, we'll get familiar with the particle and rigid body dynamic systems. We'll start by exploring the ins and outs of MODO's simulation tools, including how to preview a simulation and caching the simulation to disk. We'll also learn about the ways a particle system links up...
In this MODO tutorial, we'll learn about the MeshFusion interface and begin building up a simple tree-based Fusion object. Booleans have been around for a long time, and by adding or subtracting different objects from one another we can create surprisingly complex objects. But issues like poor...
In this MODO and Substance Designer tutorial, we'll look at how to create game interiors using those two programs and Unreal Engine. We'll start off using MODO to quickly create high-poly meshes using a variety of techniques including Mesh Fusion, profiles, and presets. We'll look at the key...
MODO is a very powerful and flexible 3D application. Even if you're primarily a CINEMA 4D artist, MODO can be a great tool to add to your arsenal. MODO has a number of strengths that can be leveraged in your pipeline, but transitioning to a new piece of software can sometimes be daunting. In...
We really should thank the top animators that came before us for working diligently to devise this golden formula of animation, because these principles can help us transform our work into some that is truly unique and fascinating. Think of the 12 Principles, then, as the foundation that all...
In this MODO tutorial we'll use a project-based approach as we cover the basics of modeling, look at commonly used tools, and talk about some time-saving tips and techniques in MODO. We'll begin by looking at polygon and subdivision geometry and how MODO works with that geometry. We'll take a...
When learning a new software package, sometimes it's good to just jump in with both feet and start to create something. In this tutorial we'll build a small insect-like mechanical surveillance drone.We'll cover the unique method of working with polygons and mesh items. We'll learn to shape and...
