The big news for sculptors at Macworld: Autodesk Mudbox 2009 is coming to the Mac! No details yet, but published in Architosh: “While some products were previously announced for the Mac today Autodesk is unveiling Mac OS X support for Autodesk Mudbox 2009, Autodesk Toxik 2009, and Autodesk ImageModeler 2009 for the first time.”
You can bet that I’ll be shelling out the dough for Mudbox when available and will try to get a Mac first-look here as shortly thereafter.
Now things get interesting!
From the press release. Expected ETA is February this year.
“Autodesk Mudbox 2009: A highly intuitive application for painting, texturing and re-touching 3D models.
