Looks like a pretty impressive upgrade. Some nice things I had been hoping for such as shading nodes and fracturing. Some of the other features, I am sure I will realize their importance once I understand them better.
HOWEVER (yes, here it comes - my first bitch about a feature that I wanted that apparently didn’t get done) - import/export to After Effects. I had really gotten the impression shortly after the 701 launch that AE I/O was a priority for the next release but, there was no mention of it today. The lack of this feature is the one thing that really hampers my use of Modo for many of our projects. I really, really need that ability to save out camera, object and light location data to AE and to bring that data in from AE.
Motion graphics guy here. Motion graphics artists are heavy AE users. We need to be able to move data between our 3D tool(s) of choice and AE. Nuke - as powerful as it is as a high-end compositor - is not a motion graphics tool. Further, Nuke is far more expensive that AE. Most of us motion graphics guys are not likely to ever switch to Nuke for both, it’s high price and lack of suitability as a mograph tool. We need AE I/O.
We’ve been asking for this for several versions now. Please, Foundry folks, can we get this done??? Please?
