License Type



These are traditional Modo licenses that are tied to a single user. This licence is great for a single user who may need to run Modo on more than one machine but at different times.




These licences allow a given number of users on a network to run Modo at the same time. Floating licenses are great for:

  • Users who want to make the application available to as many people as possible without buying the application for everyone.
  • Users who are happy to share a specific number of licenses which are available to everyone on the network.

Licenses are distributed on a first come first served basis. When the user quits the application the license is then available for someone else to use.

Tools for digital matte painting and virtual camera creation

Camera matching

Easily match a 3D camera to a background image just by drawing on screen and using one-click set-ups: you can match position, rotation, focal length and resolution, and estimate lens distortion.

Projecting images

Choose from the Projection Texture to project images into a given texture channel, and the Projection Shader to replicate the exact pixels of the real-world image unaffected by your scene's lighting and shading.

Projection Ink

Use MODO's intuitive brush-based tools to paint projected textures directly onto UV-mapped geometry. Blend images from multiple cameras to create seamless maps that work from any angle.

Camera Plane modifier

Create an image plane with a single click; MODO will adjust size, position and rotation to keep it filling the screen as you adjust the depth. Repeat for easy multi-layered compositions and animations.

Physical Sun setup

Use image metadata—location, direction, time of day—to automatically match MODO's Physical Sun to the real-world setting. Photographed and virtual shadows will align with just a few button clicks.


Welcome to better Booleans for everyone! With MeshFusion, you can interactively intersect, add and subtract SDS objects, control the blending between, and intuitively edit the assembly instructions.

Multi-res sculpting

Work with multiple sculpt layers at each mesh level; displacement values from all the layers are blended together into the final result, with each layer's contribution controlled by an Opacity attribute.

Topological symmetry

Don't needlessly double your workload! Now you can work on both sides of your models at once, even when they're topologically but not spatially symmetrical, such characters that have been posed.

Radial and Linear Align

Align polygon, edge or vertex selections into circles, n-sided shapes or straight lines with new align tools—great for bringing uniformity to areas of your model. The weight of the effect can be varied.

Better everyday tools

The Slice tool now offers new cap options, and can slice across multiple edges; plus, there’s new and improved options for Quad Fill, the Curve Generator tool, edge loop selection, and more.
