Like Scot, I still use Studio 11.5
To be honest I am less bothered at the prospect of having to
Buy my way back into R20 at full price and more bothered
at likely having to( again)buy into all of R20 compatible external solutions
( Xparticles etc… ) just to get a new R20 based pipeline
back up to the Capabilities I have already Cobbled with R11.5
and my many external Apps over the years.
Particularly in the Areas of Character motion creation, retargeting
lipsinc& Dynamic Garment simulation etc.
These are the areas that Maxon has consistantly shown ZERO interest in being competitive with Applications that cost less.
And from the sound of things, this core rewrite may break alot of existing external plugins (for a while at least)giving me even more
pause not to consider jumping into a potential upgrade Quagmire
For other Applications upgrading always brings an increase in my Focus area capabilities… not so much the case with C4D.
