AutoDesk SoftImage 2011.5 plays ok with Modo 501

The little test model I did yesterday imports just fine into Modo using Collada export. Hoorah!

The render in Modo 501 was absolutely stunning quality at 1920×1080 resolution and all I did was drop an abstract studio preset into the scene. It was also blisteringly fast. Modo wins the rendering ease-of-use contest hands down.

Importing from Modo to SoftImage seems a litte more clunky using the defaults but geometry is intact. I suspect image-based textures will survive but didn’t get to that before my computer crashed doing a render in SoftImage (not SoftImage’s fault – my home computer is very flaky when it comes to CPU intensive tasks).
