They're too reliant on user requests.
They'll end up with something like this
that will bankrupt the division. Especially as they have stopped people from buying their software.
Besides, Autodesk has more software-applications than there are uses for those applications and it can't compete with itself so it ends up with a whole load of shit applications. 3ds max can do NURBS modelling, but they aren't going to improve this area because they do Alias-Surface. Maya does VFX, so they aren't going to develop this area either. The list goes on and on. No wonder they are out of ideas as to what to develop. They've either lost the tech-race to 3rd-parties, or they can't encroach on other, much more expensive, applications.
