Description: Built on the Modo Advanced Viewport technology, Modo indie VR allows first-person manipulation of layout, annotations, playback, and review directly in Modo in VR. As more users embrace VR, VR review will become a key step to all 3D content creation.
Being able to review content in VR directly via Modo greatly reduces time needed to switch applications, and greatly improves the overall immersion and connection an artist has with an object’s scale and perspective. Modo VR is perfect for 3D content creators preparing data VR and AR experiences, and also provides accurate scale and context for designers developing items for real-world construction.
Modo indie VR is one of many research projects to come out of Foundry Research and, as such, is not targeted to a specific release of Modo at this time. In the future, after gathering additional end-user feedback, it may be released as part of a later Modo release or as a separate product.
Review: Modo indie VR is a much loved 3D creator tool in which a lot of people have indeed learned how to make 3D models and other things. This is a VR add-on as such and if you want to adjust your 3D models in VR you will still need the original Modo indie for it to work and that is a subscription-based service. So while it is not something most people will want or need for those who need it this is apparently a great little add-on that makes it easier to manipulate your 3D builds.
