In my good old times i smoked cigarettes for 100$ in a month... or drinked for 150$
delicious Bourbon at one weekend, so what??

I dont know what you all get paid for all your hard work (and here i am serious,
3D is hardwork) but everything i saw from all you guys here was often
more than a little piece of art and has to be real good paid.
Otherwise there is a big mistake in understanding how things works.

I cant imagine being without V8 and i have only two seats with two new dongles
and i paid for it with a smile on my face because it makes my life a lot easier.


Mmm lets see,
EIAS v8 i already have it for 300 USD the upgrade.Now 100USD is pancakes for me.
But is not only EIAS which i have trust over the years is another set of licenses which all sums up.
You have software selling very cheap the case of Silo and Moi. What Richard is saying is that he will have to spend 150USD just to keep older clients of him happy.If you use and enjoy EIAS good for you i personally had invested in getting a few plug ins but they all failed the task.
And when you see things like http://www.blender.org/development/...gs/blender-250/
it makes you want to take a second look at spending in any software.
Yeah i get paid a few bucks but that doesnt mean i will invest my time and energy with EIAS i am over it.

Agreed. After over a year of debating features on the forum, the final release was all about lighting and rendering. With an 'awe shucks' fix of the weight painting problem. Version 8 was a disappointing release followed by another huge period of 'day time drama' as the ownership/transition issues were sorted out.

On the new EIAS3D forums people are STILL asking about file imports, texturing issues, things that have been going on for far too long. So no version 8 for me.

We'll see what version 9 brings, but EI's development has been seriously lopsided, and will probably continue that same way.

Would the upgrade resolve the issue?

I still make money with EI. I can't afford to lose it.

when I launch EI it gives me a hardware key error. When I asked around, I was told it's cause I have to have a duo dongle for a mactel.

Dongles are POINTLESS!!

I don't get it...You didn't upgrade the USB Dongle? I think it was $50. Or didn't you have to have an eve.framwork? I haven't dealt with that stuff it while IDK.

There is an issue with Quicktime when using Windows Vista and 7, but it works great with XP. With Vista, bitmaps need to be IMG or HDR files, and rendered output cannot be Quicktime, but otherwise it seems to work like it is supposed to. I render out png sequences and assemble the animations in Visionlab Studio (poor man's After Effects).

I'm hoping they can spend some more time on the issue once they are done with the multiprocessor Camera.
