MeshFusion for MODOMeshFusion for MODO has been developed by Braid Art Labs based upon the previous GroBoto technology. This revolutionary new modeling plugin is available exclusively for MODO 701 SP4 and opens up a new world of creative possibilities for artists and designers.
MeshFusion takes away the challenge of complex and frustrating boolean operations and makes the process of producing high quality models consistent and accurate.
By adding MeshFusion to your MODO workflow, you will be able to take advantage of new modeling operations that will let you interactively blend, add and subtract objects to create consistently high quality subdivision surface (SDS) models faster and more efficiently than ever before.
- Interactive live booleans based on Catmull–Clark subdivision surfaces (SDS)
- Works with MODO’s full slate of modeling tools
- Editable Fusion Strips (edge loops), that automaticly blend surfaces along boolean intersections.
- Easy click­haul editing
- Watertight mesh export to .STL
- Convert to standard MODO meshes for further modeling and/or retopology
- Animate and render live boolean connections
- … and more
MeshFusion is now available at a special introductory price of $295.

NOX renderNOX is a free stand-alone, physically-accurate state-of-an-art renderer. Its engine is based on unbiased methods. Global illumination is evaluated using Path Tracing or Bidirectional Path Tracing. Light behavior is based on laws of physics, however some simplifications occur. Many post-production actions can be done in NOX internally, so no additional software is necessary. NOX works with scenes created and imported from 3ds Max, Blender and Cinema4D.
Changes:
- Local saved files moved to user profile folder - now it is safe to install NOX in your "Program Files" folder. To view user folder open Help menu and select User Profile
- Added maxscript file that converts Vray scene to Nox scene
- Luminance curve fixed to work in linear color space
What is converted:
- Materials: VRayMtl, VrayLightMtl, StandardMaterial
- Lights: VRayLight (Sphere and Plane), VRayIES, Omnilight - geometry for NOX emitters is created
- Portal from VRayLight
- VRaySun

Adobe and AMDAMD today announced that it has delivered significant optimizations in the graphics processing pipeline to increase performance for powerful creative features and workflows in the newest version of Adobe® Photoshop® CC. Use of both OpenCL™ and OpenGL standards enables Adobe Photoshop CC to directly tap the compute and graphics processing capabilities of AMD FirePro™ Professional Graphics, AMD Radeon™ Graphics, and AMD A-Series APUs to unlock new levels of performance in the Smart Sharpen filter, and provide highly responsive, visually accurate experiences for the new 3D printing workflows, and transformations such as Perspective Warp.
This new version of Photoshop CC, a key offering of Adobe Creative Cloud™, builds on the success of its predecessor, which leveraged OpenCL ™ to power the Blur Gallery.  The new updated version of the Smart Sharpen feature leverages the power of OpenCL parallel processing to take direct advantage of AMD GPUs and APUs to accelerate the entire Smart Sharpen pipeline—including the broad palette of user-controlled options for achieving perfect results such as Amount, Radius, Reduce Noise, and algorithm choice. AMD’s latest graphics technology can increase application performance up to 11 times the performance of non-OpenCL implementations1 and enables a lightning-fast editing experience, even with large images.
The latest version of Photoshop CC also brings new OpenGL pipeline support in AMD APUs and GPUs to enhance the responsiveness and display quality for new, high-value features including:
- Perspective Warp – OpenGL performance provides virtually instant feedback for this new feature that enables users to selectively adjust the perspective of portions of an image in relation to other elements that remain untouched.
- 3D Printing – OpenGL performance enhances the experience of working with the powerful new 3D printing capabilities in Photoshop CC by providing rapid visual feedback as 3D models are enhanced as well as accurate, WYSIWYG previews and fast mesh repair and 3D print preparation.
These new Photoshop features accelerated by AMD are just the latest developments of a long-standing collaboration that has brought dozens of hardware accelerated features to Photoshop including the Blur Gallery of effects, Puppet Warp, Liquify and many more.

Creativity Inc.From Ed Catmull, co-founder (with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter) of Pixar Animation Studios, comes an incisive book about creativity in business—sure to appeal to readers of Daniel Pink, Tom Peters, and Chip and Dan Heath.
Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever, all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation—into the meetings, postmortems, and “Braintrust” sessions where some of the most successful films in history are made. It is, at heart, a book about how to build a creative culture—but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, “an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible.”
