Autodesk public relations has told Architosh that Autodesk ImageModeler 2009 will no longer be a stand-alone product. As of November 2, 2009, licenses of Autodesk ImageModeler 2009 software and ImageModeler 2009 upgrades will no longer be available for purchase.
As of November 2, 2009, users will only be able to obtain a license of ImageModeler 2009 when they purchase a license of Autodesk 3ds Max 2010, Autodesk 3ds Mac Design 2010 or Autodesk Maya 2010 software with Autodesk Subscription.
Autodesk says this decision was made to refine and simply their product range, while at the same time providing their customers with an improved and more complete workflow solution.
Existing ImageModeler clients, of which Autodesk says there are fewer than 100, have been informed of this decision.
