Clone me a Modo (procedurally, that is)

If it wasn’t bad enough that we have to update our software every few months or every year, tiered roll-outs of major versions have now become all the latest trend. Aside from the devastating psychological effects – you always feel like you paid for something that you are not getting and have to continue to […]

Not so A-Maz(e)-ing

One of the more questionable “pleasures” of again having access to more TV channels is that I slowly get to catch up on movies on my backlog. Sometimes that’s a good thing, but more often than not I come to the realization that I really didn’t miss out on much. I don’t need to write a […]

Modo+P, Cinema+RF, Element+SW

A bit of news is making the rounds, which has people a bit jazzed up with excitement and that news is Modo 10.1 coming and as a Public Beta at that to boot. Before getting too carried away with dances of joy at the prospect of trying out the new procedural tools, you might want […]
