What's modo?

Post by ch » Thu Feb 10, 2005 2:12 pm

In the very first incarnation of Blender (1.0) control over drawing of Areas was left to the "sub window" feature the Irix window manager offered. This is available in X11 and other windowmangers too btw. After a while I decided to drop this, mostly because using many sub-windows within a main window is handled extremely slow. Speed is comparable to a single application trying to manage like 10-20 separate windows, causing a lot of system overhead. One full redraw of a new Screen setup took seconds (a slowness you can now still watch in Modo btw, they apparently didn't copy Blender completely yet ;-).

Actualy modo is not so google happy.
Did you give it a try? Only today it turned up in my top 5 list.
Luxology (the company) gives more results.

But it must have been discussed on this forum somewhere...
