I guess they don't like ICE....


hehe :P

You would think will all the hooha that the new XSI got that it would be stronger than ever. I thought it did a pretty good job of getting the word out on ICE despite Houdniks thinking "whats the big deal, we have had that and more since 1999 or longer".

Maybe this was the endgame all along. get some attention from a good update then sell. (Despite how houdniks feel about ICE its good to see a company actually deliver worthy updates).

When Autodesk bought Alias I didn't think much of it cause Maya and 3DSMax have always been oriented to different markets (with some minimal blending). Now that they have acquired XSI they now have a product which overlaps with two of their existing ones. (And that's ignoring Mudbox)

Strange strange strange.

To be honest, I would have thought Adobe would have been interested simply to round out the DCC suite.
