    jay lets go 🙂 

    speculation : (to get this thread going 🙂

    Considering the planed price increase (perpetual vers. MSA) they will have to have something they would consider worth it for R22 (or how they will call it). My guess is, that the core rewrite now comes to the object manager at last > Faster object handling. Or that they include Redshift. One or both of this news I was expecting for September.  So I am a bit surprised with this event now. I am not shure If we get news like this today:)

    Including Redshift in the perpetual license cost would be ideal....but I doubt it.  But then again, that could explain the 30% discount for Redshift that was just offered.  I took that 30% offer because I honestly believed that Redshift would never be bundled with C4D.  Both are top products in their respective fields, so why be so generous.  Also bundling them in a perpetual license does NOT motivate people to a subscription model.  But if it was bundled, then  how MAXON takes care of existing Redshift license holders will be a big question

     

    [Start PTSD Alert....]

     

    {...MAXON bundling Redshift with C4D may allude to Cebera's earlier post about "speculation" because existing Redshift license holders want to know what they will get out of it.....hmmm.....bundling Redshift with C4D may also explain why the MAXON employees are looking forward to this announcement...the clues are starting to line up......okay...calm down.....calm down.....it will be okay.  Just take a deep breath...it will all be over soon.}

     

    [End PTSD Alert]

     

    I would go with faster object handling...that plays well with my fluid speculation as well...and could point to a whole new particle system being released with the fluid system.

     

    It also may explain why Insydium worked so hard to update Explosia and their xpFLIP in their most recent XP release.  Maybe Insydium is licensing their algorithms to MAXON?  That would never be announced but stranger things have happened in the business world.

    I think Insydium will probably be very careful about keeping their leading C4D particle position, so I would highly doubt that they'd license anything to MAXON at the moment - 

    Also I think there are enough areas that have to get done properly before rushing to extremely ambitious new grounds like a new particle system. ~cough~  constraints, motion system, animation layers, hair cache ~cough~ 

    What I personally would be most excited about would be an animation layer system where layers are driven procedurally, e.g. by noise

    And of course a facial addition to the Mixamo mocap control rig/ advanced biped templates

     

    I feel that eventually Redshift will have to be bundled with C4D, how else would you compete with Autodesk's Arnold that ships with all their DCC apps, or Blender's Cycles. And i also feel that that is MAXON's intention

    the other posibility, ... well

    MAXON has recently been more focused on acquiring other companies ... It is a bit early for R22 isn't it?

    You're joking now, but then there will be a sufficiently far developed AI, and then you're out of a job. 🙀

    I think it still is oddly silent. even after the publication of the Neutron news everything feels so calm and quiet. Is it because forums are not the place to be anymore, is it because covid drove so many out of business or maybe people don't get the impression, that the news really affect them? Or maybe I am the only one that feels that way?

     

    best regards

    I think that the forums have lost a lot of appeal in the last decade. MAXON User numbers are so much higher than at the high time of the forums, but noone  (statistically) is interested in what happens in the forums, my guess is they are all to busy working. Social Media will account for some of this, but even then the disparity between paying customers and publicly visible customers is huge.
