memory issues remain, amd driver updates are too slow, what few resellers of softimage 2010 in aus that i can find, only list their email addresses they rarely have stores and what few do don't have prices for softimage2010.
the price in AUSTRALIA for softimage 2010 is not even remotely likley to be close to the american price plus conversion... rather it will likely be about a 100% markup on that price.
autodesk america only sells to US customers. autodesk does not have an online store for australia.
the switch from AVID to Autodesk means i can't upgrade to win7 until i upgrade softimage, primarily for fear of not being to re-enable my softimage license now the license servers have been ...i don't even know what they did in the "great transition phase" all i know is my saving for the cintiq21ux meant i couldn't upgrade to a newer "autodesk'd" softimage. leaving me with no confidence in reinstallation should windows go belly up.
THIS IS WHY I HATE AUTODESK, and why i bought a softimage license in the first place. the big guys use the assimilate or die method of marketplace competition. and the little guys are left with stagnating software and confusing beaurocratic hoops to jump through when all they want to do is make 3d models......
and it's damn hot here too, which is just making me even more miserable at the situation.
