The Art Department at San Francisco-based Industrial Light & Magic is now using Luxology's 3D modeling and rendering software modo to increase speed flexibility and efficiency. Our clients rely on the ILM art department to create world-class concept art and design for their films. To generate that type of work we utilize best-of-breed tools and modo is turning out to be a terrific 3D tool for the team says Richard Kerris CTO at Lucasfilm Ltd. modo is playing a key role in how certain looks and concepts are best created and it has earned its place in our toolset. 

 ILM has set the industry standard for visual effects and has contributed to some of the most influential and groundbreaking films of the last 35 years. Working alongside a full complement of professional tools 3D concept art developed in modo has played a key role in a number of recent projects including Confessions of a Shopaholic and Iron Man 2.

 Using modo and producing concept art in 3D has been a huge asset to our department says David Nakabayashi creative director at ILM. Our 2D images are invaluable communication tools but 3D visualization really takes creativity to the next level and brings a whole new dimension to our work.
