MODO 801 SP3
All registered MODO 801 users will now find Service Pack 3 (SP3) available on the My Products page of their Foundry account. 801 SP3 contains almost 100 bug fixes and improvements, improving stability and correctness. In addition, SP3 adds the following features - Alembic I/O has been updated to support point cloud import and export, and streaming of static and variable-polygon-count meshes and curves. Adds a 45-degree rotation constraint when using Mesh Paint in Drop mode, by using the shift-key modifier. Adds a 90-degree Y Rotations channel to allow rotation snapping in 90 degree increments for Replicators.
The following list is a review of changes and corrections included in MODO 801 SP3.
