Great news for Max users on subscription. Autodesk will release a Connection Extension that provides enhanced data translators between Max, Revit, Rhino, SketchUp, etc., as well as a rewritten OpenEXR translator. Subscription customers will also have access to ImageModeler 2009 and MatchMover! A six-month trial of Mudbox 2009 will also be made available. The software is expected to be available around August 10th.

More at Ken Pimentel's blog.

Goes rather well with my other post regarding free green screen / tracking plates

Yeah that's pretty cool.

Does Maya 2010 come with Toxic compositor in it now?

Yes, it has been integrated into Maya. It would've been nice addition to max also, but I'm happy with MatchMover. Even though it's not the best there is... it's enough for my needs atm.

By integrating it into Maya though, to me, that is a signal that it wasn't doing as well as they thought it should as a stand alone program so instead of scrapping it they integrated it into another program to increase the program's feature set. Unless everyone who uses Toxic also uses Maya I guess! Leaves people who use Toxic but not Maya in a strange place.

Does it seem like Autodesk is kind of wonky they way it deals with things at times? They give out limited information and never really foster confidence in just exactly what they are doing or where they are going with things at times.

To me it looked like Toxic was marketed to Combustion users and the end of Combustion was getting closer. Now ... I just can't see it happening. If they axe Combustion, they have nothing to offer to small studios and independent users.

I'm just wondering how this all will turn out in the end. Max, Maya and XSI under the same roof.

It's because no serious film comping house ever picked up Toxik. i can see why - Autodesk seems to have a habit of abandoning development once they have a bunch of users locked in.
