modo Wins MacUser ‘3D Animation Software of the Year’ Award
Luxology’s modo won a MACUSER “Maxine” editorial award for the best “3D/Animation Software of the Year” at last week’s MacExpo conference in London. Awarded by MACUSER, one of the U.K.’s leading Macintosh magazines, the “Maxine” award was presented on Oct. 26 at a ceremony held at The Hurlingham Club, an elegant and historical estate in Fulham, England.

Chosen by MACUSER for its superior speed and intuitive user interface, the OS X version of modo enables Mac users to create 3D models and images for a variety of applications, including graphic design, game and film production, education, and design visualization. The modo content creation experience is enhanced by realistic graphics viewports that provide real-time feedback and impressive manipulation speed in a flexible user interface that invites experimentation and artistic expression.

“We thank MACUSER’S editorial team for recognizing modo,” said Brad Peebler, president/co-founder of Luxology. “The other 3D software competing for this prestigious award is also to be congratulated and we were pleased to be in the company of this new crop of great 3D software.”

modo is available now for $895, and is available through Luxology and its worldwide reseller partners on both the Mac OS X (Universal Binary) and Windows platforms. A free 30-day full-function evaluation version of modo is also available for immediate download from modo3d.com.
