Hello guys, as an avid Fabric user I thought I'd share my views on what the platform really was and the voids left by its end of development.

Quote: MPC Film has announced that Paul Doyle, former co-founder and CEO of Fabric Software, has joined its award-winning team as global head of research and development.
Doyle has more than 20 years of experience in the media and entertainment software industry, encompassing roles in technical sales, business development and product management at companies such as Avid, Softimage and Autodesk. 

“MPC Film has a long history of developing in-house software that redefines and innovates the VFX workflow, so I am really excited to have Paul joining us to further establish MPC Film as a key VFX innovator, delivering new breakthrough frameworks and tools to our artists and film makers," says Damien Fagnou, MPC chief technology officer.

“I’m delighted to be joining the fantastic team at MPC Film,” says Doyle. “Very few VFX companies operate at this scale and complexity and have such great shows in production, so I’m very excited to tackle the challenges ahead“ said Doyle.

MPC has had an exciting year having won the VFX Oscar for The Jungle Book, led the VFX on movies including Ghost in the Shell, Alien Covenant and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and crossed the uncanny valley with their Rachael digital character for Blade Runner 2049.

MPC is in production on The Lion King, Aquaman, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Dumbo, The Predator, Skyscraper, Ad Astra, Godzilla King of the Monsters, The Darkest Minds, Underwater and The New Mutants

Unfortunately this means that the future of Fabric is as an MPC in-house tool. It also means that they won't release shit to the public.

Oh well. I know how to program in C. I don't really need Fabric engine to build cool stuff.
