Though I can relate to not having a complete package delivered with Studio, Thea Render V2 has finally arrived. There's been some hiccups on launch (which is NOT unheard of) with licensing but, I cannot express how excited I am, after waiting for two years, for the current future of the software. This is a second beginning with new features and more to come. I'll explain it this way:
Anyone who has ever played with dominos (not the game, but the "train line of falling black blocks") knows how long it can take to set up an orchestrated domino train. Well, to me.... this is what has been going on. And last Friday, we saw the first domino drop in that line that starts the chain of new things to come!
Studio WILL be released. TR4SU IS OUT and it's only going to grow. Soon, after this emotional transition time, as JQL says, "there will be good reason to come back. Let's spend time pushing development forward instead." And for this, I'm glad I've stayed and that I'm staying. I love working with Thea (and this is not just a kiss butt phrase), I really do.
Seeing how this team is currently "jacked up" and pumping out adjustments, amendments and soon coming additions, I just wish to encourage those on the fence, do not be discouraged by the "well deserved" expressions of frustration... as users have been waiting for a long time with high expectation. But, this release should in NO WAY communicate the end of anything as far as end product... but a vision for what is coming.
Hang in there a little longer.... and a little more. You too will see (up and coming) the reasons you'll be glad you did.
My hat's off to Giannis, Tomasz and the whole team for everything they have been able to accomplish and for the wonderful work being done for what is coming.
For me, the future looks ALLOT brighter than it did before and the worries I had, the worries shared by many here, of having to perhaps change and learn another soft... are gone. THAT is a great sense of peace I've been missing. So also... THANK YOU FOR THAT!!!
I'm SO LOOKING FORWARD to the future with Thea!
