Here's a cool SF short.

Awesome VFX. Great to see Modo being used for the modelling. And Vue for the vegetation/scenery.

Sorry Darren, I haven't got my Babel fish in today...

Hah! Yes, sorry.

Modo is a 3D modelling/rendering application, as is Vue. They both have different strengths: Modo is an amazing subdivision surfaces modeller and renderer while Vue is great for vegetation and 'world' building.

I initially thought that all, or at least most, of the vegetation in that short was created with Vue. But it seems it’s all Modo.

I've used Modo (and Vue) for some time. It’s great to see them used on such a project. Normally this stuff is handled by applications like Max or Maya.

Just came from preview of Iron Sky:

Contains also some pretty impressive GFX with almost hobby budget.

A Short? Christ, that was a lot better than most 'Longs' I've seen lately.
