Blender 3D has ended the era of these products. You can't beat Blender. You can't. Pixar is slowly porting to it. I've done stereo 3D images that the best CTOs of FX shops in LA couldn't believe when presented. Maya is going to be last survivor, but will die eventually.

I've had my eye on modo for some time, however, their pricing policy is far too agressive, so far as I am concerned. For the first 5 years, modo was stable price-wise, having increased from version 102 to 501 by only $100. In the last 4 years, though, it has gone from $995 to 1676 (yes, 68%), which in our current economy is suicidal. I've had a similar experience with Cinema 4D a few years ago, and their pricing policy forced me out of their game, though I love their product. Maxon, however, has been smart enough to introduce new trimmed-down versions at lower prices. Since, I expect modo 901 to sell above $2000 only one year from now, I must look elsewhere for similar, or near-similar software.

The best out there. Smooth and intuitive. Fast, beautiful renders. The one line description under the title here hardly scratches the surface. This is awesome software. The user base is positive and supportive.

Current version of modo is 501. Its the best 3D software I've met. It only lacks character animation (I wish it would merge with messiah). Oh, and its 64bit also :)

It won't have me leaving Maya any time soon but the sculpting is nice. FIX THE BROKEN SYMMETRY AND YOU MIGHT SELL ME A COPY.

I've spent the better part of the past 2 months evaluating 3d apps, but modo set the bar so high that in the end it wasn't even a contest. Beautiful GUI, great stability (Intel), exceptional learning materials and support, and a sensible license (per user, not per computer) made the decision a no-brainer. It is not cheap and the learning curve is not short, but this is an incredible tool that you won't outgrow.

I looked for some good not to say best 3D Modeler and I think on Mac there is nothing better right now. I am planning to make some architectural visualizations. For that kind of work I still have to learn a lot more though. Thanks to the many videos in the Help section of the program and luxulogys website I could complete my project. And finally mastering modo and therfore the 3D modeling world should be only a matter of time. Btw. I am bloody hell newbie to it :) Using modo is a lot of fun to me, because you can learn everyday something new.

Powerful modelling and rendering tool. The best GUI I've seen in the past (Huhu Autode*k ;). Friendly community and outstanding support from the developers. Top-notch Luxology TV and weekly modcast. Grab your trial and see.

A powerful but unforgiving 3D program crippled by instability and longstanding bugs, with a customizable but unwieldy modal interface that hinders more than helps, lacks support for standard Mac key bindings such as the Apple key, and in general shows contempt for the Apple Human Interface Guidelines. A wealth of training materials is available online, but the included documentation is simultaneously incomplete and redundant, and the user community is defensive, arrogant and hostile.

My attempt to download was repeatedly rejected although I successfully completed registration. I was notified that an error had occurred and was encouraged to contact Luxology, but the contact link resulted in what appeared to be a 404 not found error.
