emReader for Modo

emreader for modoemReader is a procedural item which loads indexed geometry cache files. The geometry cache files are only referenced instead of imported and directly passed to the renderer when needed. The plugin consists of a kit that contains a "lx" file (Windows 64bit) for Modo 601 and above.
