  1. Im thinking that the other company might be the Foundry. They are working on a non linear animation mixer for modo 901 ....maybe they are thinking ...why bother writing one when they can just buy messiah. Messiah was originally a tightly integrated lightwave plugin and modo is written by the guys who originally wrote Lightwave... But then again it might be a snake oil scam knowing fori ......And the other company is actually Unity as they have it on the asset store
  2. Just got this from pmg Dear messiahStudio User: Big changes are about to happen for messiahStudio and you. We have been working on a deal with a company that could change the industry, and give you an advantage as a messiahStudio user. We will be able to add more resources, improve the software, and give you a greater user experience; as well as support your projects in interesting ways. This will also mean the future cost of the product and upgrades, may not be solely under our control. You are being offered one chance to save on both current and future versions, before this happens. If you want to lock in your ability to take advantage of the current price savings, these are your last opportunities to do so. Don't say we didn't warn you MESSIAHSTUDIO 5 USERS: Upgrade to version 6, so you are not priced out of the future: $20 http://www.projectmessiah.com/x6/shop_upgradeBF6.html Anyone who is not on version 6 by the time this takes places, will not be able to upgrade, and will have to pay the new prices, as if you were a new user. There will be nothing we can do to help you after that point. MESSIAHSTUDIO 6 USERS: If you want to lock in your future version price, avoid the price increase, and gain the advantages that new users will have, without paying the new user price, convert to a subscription license: You can cancel it at any time, and still run the version you have from that time forward. Your ability to run the software will not expire, only your access to new things from that point on. If you re-subscribe after that, it will be at the new price, so it's to your advantage to maintain it. This is the best deal we can give you as a current user; and soon you'll see why: $40 a year: http://www.projectmessiah.com/x6/shopSUB6.html We're sorry we can't disclose any more information at this time; our plans involve other companies, so we are not at liberty to put out new information, before the appropriate time. Thanks for your understanding. We look forward to sharing with you what's in store for the future. So is the new partner possibly pilgway ? ...... as they're a perfect match and several people on the boards have talked about it in the past
  3. I learned blender to see what it was like and it's very good but much prefer xsi and modo for modelling.I only use it for the fire and smoke when I'm doing fx work ,blenders fire system is phenomenal
  4. Reading between the lines of the information given I think it is some kind of "live" auto .If it saves me hours/days of mind numbingly boring retopology work Ill be first in the queue to buy a copy.
  5. Just downloaded Zbrush 4R2b and noticed something new in the tool pallet , alittle button called qRemesher...so did a little searching and found this paragraph on zbrushcentral QRemesher is result of the collective efforts of both Pixologic and Verold. As it’s name suggests, it is a remeshing solution both automatic and guided. Stay tuned, for a February pre-release Alpha version of QRemesher, available for download and preview inside ZBrush 4R2b. Once completed, QRemesher will be available for purchase and download at Pixologic.com. Seems to me that Zbrush are following Andrews lead (again) .

  6. It's easy enough to open the map in photoshop and invert the green channel .no need to rebake
  7. Forger is a new sculpting app for Ipad . Just downloaded it and its pretty good.The interface could do with a tweak in places but its pretty good with all the tools you'd expect from a pro grade sculpting app.For 2.99 you cant grumble at the price either . Definately will make my daily train journeys more fun. Shame that a basic version of 3dcoat isn't in the works for Ipad.Definately something that Andrew should be looking into.
