WARNING for osX Catalina users:
If you updated to Catalina, unfortunately Gatekeeper will prevent you from running this kit.
If you still want to purchase Tracer X 1.3, here a workaround to run uncertified software:
1) Launch the app you're trying to run and aknowledge the Gatekeeper warning that prevents the app from running.
2) Head to System Preferences > Security and Privacy > General and look for a note at the bottom of the screen about an app launch being denied.
3) Click on "Open Anyway" to bypass Gatekeeper and launch the app.
TRacer X is a plugin for Modo®, the powerful and flexible 3D modeling, texturing and rendering toolset from Foundry.
The kit contains 4 mesh operators:
- Curve Tracer X
- Noise Displacement X
- Image To Weight X
- Push X
Curve tracer will allow you to generate curves from animated mesh vertices (bspline, curve and polyline are supported).
It can be used for a variety of different situations, including motion graphics, particles generation, or making long hairs.
Noise displacement instead applies a perlin noise to the underlying mesh.
Noise can be applied to Curves as well, and combined with a gradient to attenuate the effect.
Image To Weight X takes an image from the clip browser and converts it to a Weight Map. Various Blending modes are available for multiple instances of this meshOp. Image sequences are supported as well.
Push X is the same as the standard modo's Push deformer, but it supports a weight map, to be combined with Image To Weight X.
The plugin has been compiled for win64 and osX.
Two types of Licenses are available: Indie and Studio.
Both have the same exact functionalities, with no restriction: you can use it on unlimited nodes, for commercial products.
“Unlimited nodes” means that you can install it anywhere, and have multiple users working on multiple PCs at the same time.
The only difference is, if you are a company with a revenue above 1000000 (1M) euros/year*, you have to buy the Studio license.
Both are permanent licenses.
The activation is online.
*(Total Revenue. For different currencies, the averaged yearly conversion will apply).
