  • News Autodesk 2012 trials

    April 8, 2011 by r13

    Autodesk has released the trials for their 2012 crop of products; ie Max and Maya are the ones you probably care about most.

    They offer the free 30 day trails as you may or may not have seen before. Basic tutorials as well as all the various new features and bug fixes are listed at their respective spots below:

    Maya 2012 – Info
    Maya 2012 – Trial

    3D Studio Max 2012 – Info 
    3D Studio Max 2012 – Trial

    There are also offering zero percent financing for those of you that actually purchase the software.

    You might notice 3D Studio Max Design listed there too. This isn’t really useful for our needs. It’s basically Max with a bunch of architectural plugins. They used to call it 3D Studio Viz.

      zero percent financing is really cool….much easier than shelling out a gillion bucks at once.

      I would download it, but I can't be asked to fill out a form that long. You got to be kidding me… I just want to try their software, not sign up for a sales job. We'll be getting it at work next week anyway. I think I'll just enjoy my weekend, lol.

      Awesome. I've downloaded it and I've been playing with it for a few minutes, but I can't seem to be able to get the Direct X shaders to show up.

      I'm always working on the 2010 version of 3DSMax and there the Xoliul shader works. Do you guys know how to set it up here or if it's possible to get some sort of real-time shader without using Direct X? (seeing how 2012 has this new 'awesome' viewport..).

      Finally, a max worth getting.

      Holy shit yes!
      Finally a pimped viewport for Maya 2012.
      I hear a voice calling me… "shaaaader auuuthooorrriiiing…".

      I want this. Badly.
      Wonder if they'll add the 2012 version for the student program.. Anyone knows?

      I'm with Disting, waiting for the student version.
