Those animations look amazing!! Great job!

Very cool review of the making of Spellbreak. Would be even more cool to see some videos inside UE4 showing how they do a few very specific things unique to them.

This was so helpful for me. I'm hoping to adapt your tutorial to pull off something similar comparing modern satellite imagery with historical maps. No topo, so my steps should be simpler, but I'm a novice with Blender and you've really helped. Thanks!

Autodesk restructuring. 925 people layed off
4 February, 2016
News

Autodesk, Inc., the world’s leading supplier of advanced 2D and 3D design, digital content creation has planned a restructuring. It is said that this needs to be done in order to focus resources on the move to the cloud.

Autodesk, the developer of software tools like Maya, Mudbox and the Stingray engine, has come to a decision of restructuring that will include  layoffs of 925 employees. 

As we progress through our business model transition, we continue to take a comprehensive look at our company to see where we can be more effective and efficient. To realize maximum value for both our customers and shareholders, and as a follow-on to previously discussed cost reduction actions, we are restructuring so we can focus resources on areas that will accelerate the move to the cloud and transition to a subscription-based business

This is 10% of current staff and it is expected that the company will benefit from that move in 2017.

To be clear, the restructuring announced today is not related to anything we are seeing in the macro-economic environment. We ended fiscal 2016 on a high note with very strong fourth-quarter billings growth and continued demand for our subscription offerings. Solid revenues, coupled with continued cost-controls, led to better than expected non-GAAP EPS during the quarter. I’m pleased we were able to deliver these results at such a critical moment in Autodesk’s transition.
