MODO DYNAMICS



Physics, Dynamics, Particles, (02:57:39)
With MODO 801 came a complete overhaul of the MODO dynamics system, based on Bullet Physics. Now you have a training video to take you into the world of simulations and teach you how it works. This video will not only give you an overview of the dynamics tools available, and how to use the dynamics solver, but provide you with practical examples so that you put these tools to the test. You will learn, for example, how to make use of soft bodies and use anchors to attach them to rigid objects to hang items like cloth or curtains:



You will also learn about constraints and how to use them to simplify simulations to achieve more complex results:



You will even learn how to get many different items to interact with a wide variety of collision options and setting to simulate realistic actions:



You will also learn how the dynamics system can work together with particles and replicators, and you will learn about the amazing new Mesh Shatter tool and how you can use it with glue to get realistic destruction! This video will give you numerous scene files that you can pick apart and experiment with, letting you continue to expand on the wealth of knowledge given you about MODO’s incredible dynamics engine. Take you work in MODO to the next level with these amazing tools! (3 videos)

MODO AND MATTE PAINTING



Modeling, Rendering, Replicators, Compositing, Painting (04:30:03)
As a fan of science fiction and fantasy movies, I always loved those amazing establishing shots which introduced us to the worlds they were creating. I also always wondered how they did it. I was amazed to find that, in those old movies, some of those worlds were simply paintings! In the digital realm, matte painting came to involve the use of 3D graphics, painting, photos and any other technique needed to bring the fantasy world to life. Now these techniques are being brought to you! You will learn how you can use MODO to create the 3D elements you need, and composite them with photo elements and even simple painting techniques to create your own worlds! (3 videos)

Modeling(01:39:23)
In this training video we are going to look at the new multiresolution mesh sculpting that becomes available thanks to Pixar subdivision surfaces. Different than painting displacements or normal maps, we are going to experience sculpting on real polygons, at different levels of detail, reaching nearly 6 million polys. We are going to see how and why we can begin to create things that we only dreamed were possible in the old days of polygon modeling. Get ready for a whole new level of detail work in modo sculpting!

MODO NATURE II: SHAOLIN

Modeling, Shading, Texturing, Lighting and Rendering (01:42:17)
A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to visit the Shaolin Temple in China. While riding the trolly high above the misty Song Mountain, I witnessed some of the most gorgeous natural scenery I have ever seen. It all gave me incredible inspiration to create. I had to know what kind of techniques would be needed in modo to bring about the high rock cliff faces interspersed with plant life. What could be done with sculpting, displacement maps and 3D textures to make the kind of scenes I was witnessing viable in 3D? How would I shroud it all in the beautiful mist I saw rolling over the mountain there? These questions and more are all answered, step by step as we create such a scene in Modo Nature II: Shaolin!
On this training, Terrence shows us his techniques on terrain modeling, through sculpting, the use of replicators to populate the scene with realistic trees, lighting and rendering. (1 video)

LIGHTING, IR, REFLECTIONS AND REALISM


Lighting and Rendering (01:16:21)
What can the real world teach us about lighting in modo? If you were doing a photo shoot in a studio, your goal is to completely control light. You want to control every reflection. You even want to control where light will bounce. In this video we explore real photo studio techniques to drive the realism already possible in modo renders to a whole new level. You will see how simulating reflector cards and soft boxes, particularly when they need to appear as reflections in your subject, can add a dimension to your renders not often seen in 3D. You will learn how to use and adjust irradiance cache and render settings to get clean GI renders, even with 2 bounces. You will find that photographic realism is easily possible with just a few tricks. (1 video)
