A MASSIVE Autodesk gripe....
show user profile  HANZZ
Apparently, Autodesk not only doesn't have the decency to offer a standard trial, they are only allowing a credit/debit card "connected" trial, which you have to then try and cancel if after 30 days you DON'T want to be repeatedly billed (for a program I use for fun, it's bullshit). Additionally, the student version download link requires you to name your university (unless I'm just missing something) and I have no university as I'm not an active student. Nor do I goddamn want to try and make money from max. I just love making 3d, and have therefore used 3ds max for my entire time in the graphics world.


Bastards. I refuse to jump ship to a lesser program like Cinema 4D, and still want to leverage my knowledge of 3D Studio max (20 years or so) but this takes the damn cake (the cake is a lie, I know, but if there was one, this would take it). They no longer want to allow a student version that ANYONE can download (am I wrong??) and they have BOUGHT UP all their competition, which, to my knowledge, is a monopoly, and therefore illegal. If anyone has any resolutions (on any level!) to this, let me know.

Wow, again they fuck up big time.
I was kinda loyal to 3dsmax but they make it harder every week.

Screw Autodesk.


People are loving it.

Also Blender, but that takes a bit of patience and luck and a lowering of expectations.

Heavily using 3dsmax here with vray.
Happy with chaosgroup but the pain AD gives us managing licenses/payment etc whatever gets more and more a pain. Houdini seems to me the way to go.
Any thoughts on modo?
