So where is the problem?
The issue is coming from the fact that some of them are so good, they should be bought from the authors and then joined in bonus tools from there on, plus offered some more help from autodesk.
Also some of great plugins don't get updated when upgrading to a new version of maya, which is big shame.
I understand that not every plugin would work automaticaly, but this is why there should be some scheme, where if you give away your plugin to be supported you win some benefit, for example if enough votes or downloads, you get free version of maya, or render license, etc.
What is your opinion on this subject?
I think this needs to be resolved.
Similar scheme can work for max and xsi as well.
But I'm wondering why autodesk doesn't do more about this?
