Autodesk completed their acquisition of SoftImage from AVID. This is kind of scary for the 3D animation software industry because now one company controls many of the major packages. Autodesk owns Maya, 3D Studio Max & SoftImage. Why one company would aquire diverse 3D animation packages with development teams in different parts of the world is a mystery. Will one or more of the programs be consolidated or discontinued in favor of one of the others? Stay tuned to see.
