In the midst of the general excitement about Beast I read that Autodesk bought Illuminate Labs . Is that going to change anything? ... Because they decided to scrap some parts of the company. Hope they will be happy with unity and even improve things.
No. I'm fairly certain Unity purchased a Beast license, and those carry over into Autodesk's company. Unity isn't the only one using Beast, and they wouldn't screw everyone over like that. :P
I hope Autodesk burns in hell... they're too aggressive.
But then again there is the matter of competition. Autodesk wants to cut into gameengine business. Maybe it is their strategy to buy all the 3d party software and screw other competiting engines?
