In other news: 'Autodesk members of the board seen rushing to corporate head quarters in panicked frenzy'.
Witnesses report hearing curses and desperate utterings of "...must buy something" and "Who can we take over?".

The Modo renderer in Nuke will be awesome.. And can you imagine mari painting tech in Modo...

Sidefx is to niche Modo on the other hand is a broad tool in many many markets, adding kick ass dynamics and particle effects in Modo is easier then putting Houdini in as many markets as Modo is in...

It's obvious.
Nuke is going to be full 3D/2D package.
Everything in one.
I knew it's going to happen, but didn't know how.
This is how.

Good news!

I hope it's not gonna be the case.
Compers don't need the 3d stuff 3d artists need and vice versa. 2 packages with a working data exchange would be great though.
