About our Modo training

Modo is the software of choice for many professionals involved in photo-retouching, set design, product shots and engineering visualisations. We run a 5 day Modo basics course that aims to teach the essential Modo functions.  It covers the interface and tool-set, the modelling set for essential product design and architecture, lighting and texturing within the layer stack. In lighting and rendering Modo is the supreme master.

A day to day breakdown


DAY 1 - The interface, modelling basics

DAY 2 - Advanced modelling, sub-divisions and deformers

DAY 3 - Textures and lighting, rendering, UV mapping

DAY 4 - Begin building, lighting, texturing and rendering a complete product of your choice

DAY 5 - Conclude building, lighting, texturing and rendering a complete product of your choice.

The Modo interface is very much its own thing. As an experienced animator (or not as the case may be) you will find it distinctly odd. But once you get to know it's individual ways you will grow to appreciate it. It's rendering is not just fast it's incredibly realistic. Here at 3D3 World we have used many software packages over the decades but Modo, in its own niche, is the leader of the pack.



The cost of the 5 day course is £450 (1 trainer to 4 students) or £600 (one trainer to one student). This includes meals and accommodation if you take the course at our Italian location near the delightful city of Cortona in Tuscany, Italy.


There is a 10% discount for students, the retired and those out of work
