1. What is MDO?

MDO stands for MANTANIA DIGITAL ORGANICS and is designed for our cartoon MANTANIA. It is a set of products to design nature sets in Autodesk 3ds Max. All products are offered separately or bundled together.

 

2. Why do you offer support plans instead of regular versions with upgrades?

First of all, a support plan automatically includes a full software license. We offer new features instantly without waiting for an upgrade for a year or so. This way we can deliver new features frequently and get our products to be actively developed. We keep the users wishlist and try to add the most wanted features as soon as possible.

 

3. What happens when my support time expires? Does the program stops working?

No. Your products do "not" stop working. You will not be able to download the latest upgrades once your support plan expires.

 

4. Why should I buy a 2 or 3 years of support plan? I thought a license doesn't expire?

Well, you shouldn't. But if you will, you will have a constant stream of new features and addons for 2 or 3 years with a discount.

 

5. Do support years need to be continuous or can I skip a year?

No. Support years do not need to be continuous. You can skip any time frame between 2 support plans.

 

6. Do I need to buy render node licenses?

No. All products get unlimited render node licenses. You only need a license to create and edit nature sets.

 

7. What plugins are included in a MDO Plants license?

MDO Plants is 1 product and it has 5 different plugins. You need 1 license for that product and all 5 plugins, including unlimited render nodes, are included. It will be bundled with a basic library set of 20 different WacoPlants species. More library sets are available for sale later on.

 

8. I have a workstation at work and at home. Can I use your products on both workstations without buying two licenses?

Yes. You can move your license from one workstation to the other as many times as you need to.

 

9. Are WacoPlants full geometry 3D models?

Yes. WacoPlants are designed as geometry objects. Leaves and petals are most of the time modeled as plane objects with opacity maps but you can replace them easily with any full geometry object.

 

10. When will product X be released?

All products will be released one after the other until our product line is complete.
