Nodally Shady Maxon

With my energy these days being focused elsewhere and the extreme summer heatwave across Europe drawing everyone’s attention on other priorities, anyway, this is kind of an “Oops, is it really that time of the year again already?” thing, but yes in the run-up to SIGGRAPH the annual updates to your favorite 3D programs are […]

Core 4D

Just this moment everyone is going batshit crazy over the latest announcement on Maxon‘s corporate blog touting a massive rewrite that has been going on for years. I say: So what?
