CD plugins appear off-market, will MAXON step up?

Recommended Posts

It's sad and unfortunate, but the complete lack of news/response since Dan's passing regarding the future of Cactus Dan's plugins suggests they're off-market for good (even Dan's site seems to have disappeared).  

Barring something changing on that front, it seems like C4D now has a significant "functionality hole" in CA tech as a result.  The CD plugins were notable in their enabling of an end-to-end Maya/MB-"familiar" CA workflow in C4D.  They also offered "depth of functionality" in a couple CA aspects where C4D's native solutions lack similar depth/configurability.  While native C4D CA tools improved greatly in last few years, there are still coverage deficiencies in C4D's CA toolset and CA interoperability which (until recently) were addressed by the CD plugins. 

I would very much like to know if MAXON has any short-term plans to specifically address the functionality deficit left by the CD plugins, and/or further modernize/bolster C4D's native CA support in short-term to bolster C4D<->Maya/MB CA interoperability?
