Modo 501 SP1 – No more broken tooltips on OSX 64bit!

Well, this service pack does a lot more but the tooltip thing was really annoying in 501. I’m glad it has been fixed quickly, as I find 501 a pleasure to work with. Now all I have to do is to convince someone to buy me a 12 core Mac Pro.

Dare to Share Project Messiah – Pro 3D for $10? You betcha!

Okay, so here’s the deal: Project Messiah is pro grade 3D software. I own it -version 3- and used to use it along with Lightwave. Nice, cool, fast, character animation tool. I probably am not the only one that thinks a match made in heaven would have been Modo+Project Messiah+Lightwave 9.6. Could have been some sort of a 3D terminator, unleashed over a starving 3D market. And I still...

Maya 2012 – Will Autodesk release it despite the bad omen?

I know, I know. I shouldn’t blog when I’m drunk and for sure many other will have blogged about this. But it struck me as a (digital) lightning bolt: what will Autodesk do with its naming convention when the whole world is waiting, well, for an end?

Modo 501 Previewed in Paris – SDK and more

According to a post on Luxology’s user forum, Modo 501 is coming along nicely.

The report does mention that now Modo has an SDK. Yeah! This is...

zBrush 4.0 due for release today (or a random day)

Childish, I know. But I can’t stop refreshing the support account page at Pixologic’s website. Still no zBrush 4.0. UPDATE #1 I have been in the game for a long time, but have never heard of randomized upgrades before. It seems upgrade emails will be sent randomly to customers, someone will get the upgrade first, someone else will get it later. Looks like a prize draw, funny....

zBrush 4.0 release is coming for real – is 2010 the new 2009?

zBrush 4.0 release is coming for real – is 2010 the new 2009?

Okay, first of all I apologize for the pun in the title. But being a Mac user, I wasn’t really happy about zBrush upgrades. You know, v4 was scheduled for 2009, then version 3.5 came out for pc only with a Mac version planned for september 2009… we are now in july 2010, and the two platforms were out of sync a bit too long for any productive environment. I can only hope the August 9th...
