>>663616Source or fuck off.I'm not finding shit on Google.
>>663616My God... it's real.
No, guys, this is totally legit. My dad works at Blender as Ton's speech therapist.
>>663639Then post your fucking source.Anyone can say "Oh me/a friend/my dad works here".
A man can only dream.
Blender is open source, how can you "acquire" it -.-
>>663657Easy. Buy the Blender Foundation, and, boom!, you got the copyright to the whole Blender codebase, and can now turn it into another closed Autocuck software, while still pushing it further than any remaining open source fork.
>>663691>and, boom!Blender foundation is financed by EU-countries(to few)/private donations.. the main idea behind it is to use free licenses. i think you can buy some Blender licenses but not the Foundation. that will be pretty instant death as soon it come out you can buy or sell it.
But Blender already bought Autodesk in 2017.
>>663691The people at Autodesk are smart. They wouldn't make people pay outrageous prices for a shitty open source product that's only appeal is being free.
>>663729Just saying that they could, not that they would. I seriously doubt Autodesk is concerned at all about Blender. It simply doesn't meet the requirements of their customers.
>>663616Sure, seems legit.
>nobody on /3/ can understand what a joke is anymore
>>663616>>663616how many brain dead retards cant tell this is a joke
>>663747>>663751Well blendlets are just that stupid.
>>663691Then someone would just take whatever the last open source version was and fork it. Then there would be a free blender and a paid Autodesk blender. This has happened with other software historically.
>>663775For my sanity I assume its next level bait. Good job guys!
>>663776Sure, with Autodesk Blender being years ahead of the open-source one.But this is fantasy. They have Maya, why would they want to start their own flavor of Blender?
>>663785>why would they want to start their own flavor of Blender?well why would autodesk keep max,lightwave and softimage? blender is just an extra trophy in the trophy room
>>663649u r dumb
>>663616Suck a dick retard, Blender is a foundation.
>>663805I'm BlenderI'm a FoundationSuck my dickI'm a Foundaaaaationnnn
>>663786>maxBecause it has 10 times more seats than Maya.
>>663823you mean by computers?well shit
https://www.blendernation.com/2017/04/01/blender-buys-autodesk/The Horror, the horror
>>663838They can barely afford 10 programmers kek
>>663639well my dad works for xbox n he says he'll ban your xbox
>>663732If they weren't concerned their representatives would simply state fact to prevent losing customers instead of spreading misinformation
>>663856Exactly the number of people maintaining Max, autodesk and BF are more alike than we thought
>>663794No, you're dumb.
>>664124>spreading misinformationWhat kind of misinformation?
>>663751MeIs this a joke OP? My livelihood is on the line.
>>664169It's real.My company is already downsizing the modeling team.This is fucking awful.
wont tht break the license thoUgh? blender isnt propietary
>>666089>blender isnt propietaryIt is now.
This has been a long time coming. There has been tons of talk about it on the blender commit logs for the past few months. It was nice knowing you guys :( Im off to learn a new skill
>>666146>Im off to learn a new skillWhy? You can take what you learned in Blender and bring it to Maya. The real journey starts there.
>>666147maya got bought out by EA, haven't you heard? There's a shitstorm going on over at the autodesk forums right now
>>666149The bigger, the better. More resources, more developers, more features. I can't wait until Houdini gets bought by the Foundry to really see it grow.
>>666149Wait, EA just bought the software and not the company? The nerve!
>>666174The company has to manage a lot of cruft man, all that CAD shit, nobody cares about that.
>>663616well i hope it's real and AD puts Arnold into it
