Currently selling for crazy, crazy discount car stereo prices…
It won’t be good for building your spaceship, you’ll have to use blender for that or something else, but it has solid animation capabilities and its currently dirt cheap. approximately 6 or 7 of the queens english pounds, or 10 dollars if you’re some dastardly texas oil baron or some such. This package has been used for feature films such as harry potter, and this crazy pricing strategy is a pretty bold move, one that i’ve chosen to support.
Once the bar is filled the offer is over and its filling quickly… this package animates characters, makes awesome looking renders and films, handles facial animation, automatically weights your rigs (this is a good thing) and all sorts of cool stuff… If you have need of it now, or think you may in future then for just a few groats it can be yours… who knows maybe we can get some characters into pioneer, have some exploring-a-planet-on-foot-shooting-at-stuff-with-a-cool-space-gun kind of stuff.. but whatever i think this offer is a great one even if you only have a passing interest.
A bunch of classics here on the cheap if you get them all in one bundle
From the little I have learned about it, it is an industry standard animation package with a wealth of features, think of it as an animation program as good as Lightwave was back in the day for 3D renders. Also it does seem to have some rendering capabilities. Perhaps Coolhand could throw more light on this as I am still waiting for my key to try it out?
yeah, i’m sure thats been the whole problem all along.
little dissapointed that it’ll be satuday before we get the licenses.
but whoever has supported this may have done more than they realise, by this business model succeeding, we may see other businesses adopting a similar strategy. As we all know 3d software in particular comes in 2 flavours, free and extremely expensive. like 500 to 2000 dollars for most packages, which leads to a massive underground black market which is supported by a small handful of professionals who are the only people who can really afford this stuff.
Hopefully we’ll see more sensibly priced software as a result… perhaps not the really big hitters who are firmly entrenched in their gouging insane policy but many of the smaller ones who sell for 500 – 1000 like modo, zbrush etc.
