New Features and Improvements for CGI

Updated video tutorials and explainers

We have updated our suite of video tutorials and explainers. The links to these can be found under the View Support Pages section or the Help link on our portal.

Updated videos now available in the Portal

Batch export of scenes

Modo scenes can now be uploaded in batches using a YellowDog script. This script and a description of its capabilities can be accessed within Modo: from the System option, select the Commands tab.

If you use the Modo plugin, you should update your plugin to make use of this change.

Support for Vray Next render engine for Modo

Modo scenes can now be rendered using the Vray Next render engine.

In order to use Vray Next with Modo, you will need to install the latest version of the Modo plugin.

YellowDog Sync Upload with ordered chunk hashes

We have improved the methodology used by YellowDog Sync to upload your scenes to the YellowDog Platform. Scenes are uploaded in chunks and the upload process now ensures that individual chunks are uploaded in sequence.

If you use the Windows Sync client, you should update Sync to make use of this change.

For more information, contact YellowDog.
