Only because you don't know anybody trustworthy who might have disclosed this information to you, doesn't make it a rumour. But well, now you know better


Thank you for enlightening me how a rumor works!
You're still missing the point of what I was trying to say, but let's leave it at that...

Autodesk will not continue to market and sell Naiad as a standalone product but it is anticipated that certain Naiad technology may find its way into future Autodesk offerings.

The suites are coming! the suites are coming!

Well as an AD Creation Suite Owner, I'm pretty stoked. I guess if you're anti AD and a Naiad user this probably sucks but having access to that solver in the suite is pretty tits in my view.

But there is no guarantee it will be released in a Suite. Autodesk may decide to integrate it directly into some of their DCC apps or some of their architectural based apps. Who knows what they will do. That is what is 'scary' about this.

They will release it in suite with Mudbox, so if your simulation goes wrong, you can "fix mesh in post"

HAHAHA!

Please don't make fun of people that design the "sweets", though they may have never used the software in any capacity, nor read about how people use it, they do know what is best for you!

Who puts these together anyway?

Autodesk acquires Naiad fluid simulation technology from Exotic Matter
In an effort to accelerate Autodesk’s research and development of simulation technologies for visual effects, Autodesk has acquired the Naiad fluid simulation technology from Exotic Matter.

Exotic Matter’s founder and CEO, Marcus Nordenstam and Chief Scientist, Robert Bridson have joined Autodesk. Robert Bridson also will continue as a professor of Scientific Computing/Computer Graphics at the University of British Columbia.

Autodesk will not continue to market and sell Naiad as a standalone product but it is anticipated that certain Naiad technology may find its way into future Autodesk offerings. As of this time, there are no new product or offering announcements pertaining to the Autodesk software portfolio.

It's expected that Exotic Matter will contact its existing Naiad customers and provide information on how support will be handled. These customers can also still contact Exotic Matter through existing channels.

Press inquiries: please contact Noah Cole with Autodesk PR at: noah.cole@autodesk.com


well, they do say here it will be sold as a standalone product so lets see

Actually, they say it will NOT be sold as a stand alone product.

it's one of the last things yet to be added into 3dsmax - fluid sims
and they can say the 45% increase in subscriptions is down to acquiring this technology..but i would not put it past autodesk to make this a suite only add on.

"you want fluid sims?...go ahead it's now part of the creative suite advantage pack ..only!"

It can be simply included in suite and sold like "non stand alone product". Just in big pack.
