HDR Light Studio and MODO are a perfect match. The folk behind HDR Light Studio have just released tutorials on lighting still and animated product shots.
You can watch this now on their blog and on Vimeo. Their showreel on Vimeo is quite impressive as well.

We always love it when artists explain their workflows and their process for creating amazing effects. John Sellings worked on the short film Project Kronos, and he has just released a video explanation of how he used MODO to create the “Human 2.0” effect. Last July, Variety reported that Project Kronos will be made into a feature film. Woot!
Watch Project Kronos now on Vimeo.

In addition to his MODO video, John has more stuff worth watching on his blog at Viva Vancouver Productions. Thanks to John for the workflow tutorial. We look forward to seeing what you come up with next!
