I think Autodesk’s policy of first renting software is borderline criminal. But then removing network rendering from a core software package, which cripples it’s use for smaller studios is criminal.
Somehow Autodesk needs to reverse it’s policy’s and the only way I can think of is to globally stop using there software and take the effort to look at other work flows.
I’ve been a MAX user since 3DS studio 4, AutoCAD R9, Maya R4. So I’ve personally dumped a huge amount of my personal time and money into Autodesk products but feel like enough is enough.
I won’t be upgrading after this release. I’m not on subscription so I will personally be using what I have but looking at other software packages to migrate to.
This isn’t ment to be a flame war. It’s simply bad business from Autodesk and I think it’s time for the users to make a real stance and look elsewhere.
Thanks for your time,
