We at Clustr, wish you all the best in 2015!! May the new year bring in good things and for those who had a particularly shitty time in 2014, we wish that this year will have some normality - at the very least. There are a few notable things to look forward to...seeing what happens with The Carlyle Group and The Foundry, Pixologic ZBrush 4R7 release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Windows 10, new software releases (Blender, 3DCoat, Houdini, MODO, and others), Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, No Man's Sky, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Inside, new Terraria update, new hardware+gadgets... We can't wait for what this new year brings :-)
The folks at Maxon want to get some helpful user feedback, whether you are a C4D user or not (BodyPaint too.. but most people have moved on to MARI, Mudbox, ZBrush and others). Please, let's all give them the input they'll need to improve their direction to remain in the CG market.. while this is just a feeling, we are pretty much expecting that any day now, there will be an announcement made that Maxon has been acquired by Adobe. And we all know what happens when big companies acquire software developers.. the software DIES :( (common, just look at Autodesk's legacy to date). SO - for the health of the industry and keeping as many software solutions available as possible, just give them a few minutes of your time!
Autodesk has announced its plan to switch to subscription only over the next one to two years, killing the perpetual license option for users to own their software and pay for the apps upfront with a lump sum. Guess you can only face palm so many times before just saying "fuck it!".. don't take our word for it. See here and here..

Have a look at these seven pointers from concept artist and illustrator Bobby Chiu. And really, you could say that these apply to ANY age :-)
