I got banned from Spinquad for having afew splits at Management
the word "modo" was censored LOL =)
it got very weird for while there .... =/
LW 9.2 ( i did do afew jobs in it last week it's just shocking )
it has not gotten better it's moved sideways and so many areas have remained untouched, and those area are it's biggest problem. it's like they work on what they can work on and leaving the reasons why people have left for later ????
when Brad and crew went off to make Modo.. all i thought was ,.. these Lux's guy's are not dumb, ( Man they Wrote LIGHTWAVE !!) they know what they got in LW code more then anyone and if they want a rewrite ..well it needs a rewrite ;)
but Lux can't pat themself on the back yet...
"ANIMATION" is a huge task to do in 3D,
Lightwave is not dead yet, Untill Modo has full animation
most Lw'ers have Maya or XSI or C4D now or at least have looked at those tools .
Lightwave got it's fans due to it being VERY CHEAP and
had alot of what the $100 000 crowd had.. today is alot different
modo 401 not only has to be able to animate as good as maya or XSI but it has to do it better to win fans over.
lightwaver's won't just compaire Modo to Lightwave,..
they will also compaire it to XSI, Maya, C4D and Max.
A hard task for the Lux boys,.
XSI is extremely good and has grown into a Powerful package and still growing just like Maya and C4D. and the plugins you get with Max now is pretty impressive.
Modo 301 will only have a basic timeline and is trying to do zbrush painting without the polygon handling power ?
Feature wise Modo 301 will only have 80% of the features of LW 9.2..
so i just don't see the need to Start to party on LW's grave yet.. there alot of work to do.
So I think if modo beats the 6th best 3D app out there,..it really doesn't mean much. it's abit like saying,.. Modo is better then truespace. =/
Modo is VERY good at what is does, But there's a lot more it has to do. to even compaire it to the LW's and Maya's of the world.
