The Foundry: Collectives

Published:  February 18, 2014    Category:  General, Software    Published by:  GriT  
The Foundry has just announced new offerings for the CG world at large. They come in 2 flavours and god forbid that they call them bundle or suites cause they try so hard in the promo video to explain that they are not (confusion/association with Autodesk?) -- they are called COLLECTIVES. And while we all like to poke fun and call Autodesk the Borg, we find it quite hilarious that The Foundry has in essense become the NEW Borg, because hell, they even named their offerings the Collective (for non-Star Trek people out there, that is what the Borg as a whole, are called). So The Foundry has tried hard to spin the Luxology acquisition as a 'marriage', and now this grouping of software is not a bundle or suite but a package. A package they are charging for almost $10,000 USD or $2480 USD (depending on which package). Oh and in the fine print, The Foundry is also enforcing manditory yearly upgrades (yep you will have to pony up if you want to skip a version update). For a company working so hard to distance and differentiate themselves from the Autodesk behemoth, they are pulling some hilarious Autodesk moves.

A COLLECTIVE is a streamlined content creation package, designed to to give artists and designers exactly what they need, without the extra baggage.

We’ve created two separate packages of our award winning products with the aim to make creation and production workflows much more efficient and collaborative.

The COLLECTIVES invite creatives from all areas of production and design to join the conversation and be part of something unique. You can share in the collective knowledge of The Foundry community and see what artists and designers everywhere are creating with these tools.
