Having all the plugins (it's for Cinema4D and Rhino plugins as well) independent from Inspire Render/Studio was one of the primary objectives.nigec wrote: ↑Mon Jun 24, 2019 10:02 amRegarding saurus's response, I think Tomasz has done an amazing job, I've come in late with V2 and with V1.5 we needed Studio as backup for Thea4SU now with the latest plugin, that's not the case out of all honesty I'm happy to say as Sketchup user I don't need Studio which was always the plan for the plugins (I miss MatLab but we can't have everything lol)
HOWEVER this has raised the bar massively beyond the old studio and what people are going to expect from Altair now, you should be looking at what people who don't use Sketchup, Rhino or C4D have to say because these are the people you need to impress, you have FormZ, Max, Modo, Softimage, Blender users in limbo waiting for something special they have been hanging on for a very long time
my 2 cents, I really hope this goes to plan
Some things missing would be fbx, dae and alembic import, Houdini users were really wanting this for Thea
And that meant re-positioning the stand-alone version too.
We are looking at every market, including Product Design as someone already noticed.
fbx, dae, alembic and others will probably not make it for this week beta, but I'm positive they will be available for next week's
