    A ver si esto precipita la compra de Maxon por Adobe...

    Bendito el día que conocí Blender.

    Re: Autodesk compra Softimage

    La leche!
    Esto es como el final de una época, los viejos tiempos del CGI se acabaron, han caído los mitos . bueno aun queda la única compañía que nunca ha sido vendida a nadie y sigue con los mismo dueños que la crearon inicialmente hace más de 20 años: Side FX.

    Esperemos que alguien sobreviva a esto . y que no teminen ahogando al resto de empresas.
    Lo paradojico del tema es que cuando XSI parecia que estaba levantando cabeza y que volvía a sus tiempos de gloria, pum, van y la compran, yo creo que los de Autodesk estaban pensando: vamos a dejarles qaue se lo crean un poco y luego les damos el hachazo que así es más divertido.

    Una pena, y claro ahora viene la pregunta, cuando pillaron Maya, 3D Studio y Maya estaban más o menos en segmentod diferenciados y podía entenderse una coexistencia, pero XSI entra en el segmento de ambos, Maya y 3D Studio, que haran, ya podemos empezar a especular .. Desmantelaran la tecnología de XSI y se la repartiran entre Maya y 3DStudio? A saber pero vamos como sigan al mismo ritmo que lo que han ido haciendo con Maya en los últimos 3 años .

    En nombre de los que usamos Houdini y Lightwave a diario para trabajar...¡os lo advertimoos! jaja.

    La verdad es que es una faena. XSI era un gran programa...ahora comenzaran los terroríficos updates y los ciclos de desarrollo capados como los demás programas de Autodesk...

    Re: Autodesk compra Softimage

    Es una pena... lo peor es que sobre el futuro de XSI yo creo que va a pasar lo mismo que con maya y lo que viene pasando con 3dsmax... sacaran XSI 2010 con 3 iconos nuevos en la interface (si, iconos, ¿que esperaban de autodesk? :P) y de aquí a unos años terminaran de sacar "avances" sobre lo último que se comenzó a desarrollar en la era Softimage (ICE), lo mismo que pasó/pasa con nucleus. De ahí a desarrollar algo propio y tratar de innovar lo veo muy difícil.

    Leo en CGTalque que desde Autodesk se dice que "realmente no va a cambiar mucho", refiriéndose a la marcha del desarrollo, imagino... pero veo que se implementan cosas chachis en Maya mientras que MAX se queda enfocado a arquitectura y demás...

    ... menos mal que leo por ahí que CAT va a ir directamente a MAX
