Sounds like this app is getting more interesting:

Its not really usable. At least it feels funky to me, but it shines as a 3dsMax to ThreeJS converter

It might not be usable at the moment, but I've little doubt that it is the future.

Modelling, and cloud rendering in realtime, and the opportunity to embed live renderable scenes in a web page. Pretty cool, no?

You are right.
It is not there yet, but as how web run time environment is evolving, soon we should be able to run native web apps that take advantage of the resources just as well as desktop applications.

ClaraIO is taking the first step, but who I see would make "the big step" would be blender. Once it becomes an environment where there are no resources compromises (which there are now), blender will jump right in. I'm sure.

I don't like the idea of my software being on a remote computer. It just feels weird. I know it's the way of the future and eventually we are just going to be plugging a screen into an Ethernet port to connect/operate a remote powerhouse somewhere, but I like my stuff local.

It just feels like we'd be giving up that user control to be able to do whatever funky jazz we want on our end. Hell, if I want to delete half my registry for no reason OR for whatever reason have the ability to modify internal files of programs like Maya/3ds (not saying that I do this now or know how to really do it), I should be able to easily and freely.

To me this way of working (remotely sort of speak) is going to give even more power to larger companies. I mean look at AD taking away perpetual licensing (will happen sooner than later, they've already announced it). Killing options and control for the user to help profits.

Not saying this is wrong or right, just saying that by having things going this way we are putting more eggs in one basket sort of speak. OR maybe I should get my head out of my arse, start more readily accepting of this sort of change and start focusing on the benefits that will come along with it.

I mean hell, it could go like this... Boot up 3ds on a remote server with a 1:1 response ratio, then you need to render something out wiht vray, but you haven't bought vray, so you can rent it for 2 hours for 15 dollars... Idk.. rant over. Lol.

just to clarify (clarify -> clara io, I'm hilarious :3), claraio is not rendering your scenes on their server.
It is a stand alone 3d modeling environment made with javascript. The only computation that goes on their servers is the deployment of the application, saving your files (they give you online storage, but you can store them locally too) and the most demanding one which is the rendering over the cloud.

Okay. I didn't know it was based entirely in JS (impressive). Still stand by what I said above as far as a blanket statement for future outlook.

You are claiever gogodr.
