Autodesk hasn’t announced anything officially, yet, but it’s been quite quiet for the 3ds Max 8 on their site. No updates, no FBX plugins, everyone seems to have moved on to newer versions. It’s sad since I very much loved 3ds Max 8 and if there was a x64 version I think a lot of folks would have stayed with it. Which is bad for Autodesk, of course ;) But, to be fair, it’s always a good thing to move forward, especially regarding technology, be it software or hardware. But definitely not just for the sake of moving on. It has to make sense and it has to be worth it.

The thing is, I felt in love with 3ds Max 8, loads of my friends and colleagues loved 3ds Max 8 and now, since Autodesk doesn’t release any more software updates to Max 8, no more plugin updates, nothing, we have to move on. We have to supress our tears and finally say bye…

Here’s a minute of silence for the great, stable, rock solid and reliable 3ds Max 8, we loved you!
