I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
Autodesk has plans on raising the prices of its maintenance plans for those users who want to stay on those plans and kept their perpetual licenses instead of adopting the rental-only licensing system the company is moving towards.
Beginning May 7, 2017, renewal prices will increase by 5% in 2017, 10% in 2018, and 20% in 2019. These numbers are cumulative. It is worth noting that you will be able to renew maintenance plans for one year at a time. The company is also offering discounted prices to users who gave up their perpetual licenses and joined the rental-only plans.
The news probably means more upgrades and more possibilities to be included in the future versions of their solutions. We’ll keep an eye on Autodesk’s plans.
