What version are you on?

Be interesting to see what the majority is:

I'm on v9.51e PC
  01 January 2003
The latest version I have is 9.51e for Mac. It's the only version I have that runs in Classic mode (and it doesn't do that very well).

I use 8.5P+ on my Mac and 10b6. Version 9.5x is too buggy for me.

Cheers, Graham

I'm also using 9.51e. I can't say it's any worse than any of the 9.5x builds.

It's the best of the 9.5x versions but it's still junk.

Still got 8.5p++ installed here....
  01 January 2003
Last upgrade: v9.5
I still swear by 8.5p++, although I also swear *at* it on a daily basis.

I own v9.5, but obviously, I don't use it. Well....I tried.....tried is the key word.

Wish I stayed with 8.5 though, save me some frustration...

Bottom line: a list of features doesn't make a useable software

I've seen several posts in here from people saying they never upgraded to v9.x but are using v8.5p++

I was wondering how that was possible since 8.5m,n, (o was new CD only, p, p+, & p++) were released the same year as 9.0?

I'm using 8.5L which was the last version released early in the same year as 9.0. When my subscription ran out in March (was it 2001?...I think so), A:M8.5 was at "L" and v9 was at beta7. Didn't v9 come out in late 2001?

In Nov of 2001...(dev. of v9 seemed to drag on forever...they got up to what...beta 17?) I called Hash to ask if I upgraded to v9, could I still get 8.5p++ (above 8.5L req'd the new CD...and I think I remember v9 being in beta almost the entire year) and I talked to James. James wouldn't even disuss some problems I was having with 8.5 (volumetrics broke/final render black spots) because my subscription wasn't current. "But I'd be glad to uprgrade you to version 9", he says. I said that I would gladly pay for the upgrade if I could still get 8.5p++. He said "
sorry...we don't have any of those CD's left." That pretty much did it for me...I posted to the mailing list the problems I was having with volumetrics and black spots and asked if anyone could vouch for v9 in a production environment...of course no one would, and I was summarily dismissed from the animaster list.

I never went back. I got several " I feel your pain" e-mails, one from Dan Shimmyo, the author of a couple of those nifty plugs that Wegg has on the Eggprops site.

My last year with A:M was NOT a pleasant experience.

A busted a$$ good for nothing version.
  02 February 2003
9.5e and toying with 10.0c, but still have 8,5p++ installed just in case.

(8,5p++ can be downloaded from Animationpitstop.com)
Note: You have to be careful since there are 2 key versions for 8.5.
