Title: FYI... dude selling Anim8or
Post by: sck5000 on June 10, 2009, 07:13:46 pm
I'm not sure if you're aware, but just thought I'd bring to your attention in case it violates your licensing policy, that this dude here is selling Anim8or:

http://www.3dmagix.com

He's really selling a re-branded Blender, but as part of his additional bonus features, you can pay more and also get a re-branded Anim8or which he calls "The Animator". You can see it in his screen grab as bonus software #1 in the "VIP Premium Package Option" here:

Thought you might like to know.

....wow...i've seen alot of that "bonus software" already out. i think one of them is either dog waffle or toon boom.someone should do something about that. You can't make money off of someone elses brilliant software,thats just not right.

Per floyd's own message, he was just recreating someone else''s work. So, the real question is, is that e-bay image floyd's, or the original artist's?

Wow! this guy is selling Blender, Poser, Mud box,anim8or, and sketch up ( all are free by the way) a $5,797.00 as he says for $47 dollars. What a rip off.

By the way - model in Anim8tor screen is made in 3dsmax. I've seen it in old Polish 3D Magazine in article about spline modelling in 3dsmax (ver. 3 I think? ;) ) http://www.3d.pl/mag_art.cgi?nr=18&id=99 However I don't know who this model belong to.

It seems indeed that this guy is selling anim8or. I shall PM steve about the issue and then it's to him to decide what to do with it.

Arik is right, that not mine. It's the original work of Andre Kutscherauer. I just made a remake.
The picture on ebay is the original work.

Since when does he think he should take someelses work?
I do hope this gets sorted out and people realize that these programs are infact freeware. :)

Either Steve or the Blenderheads. They've been raising hell about it on their site, too. What a loser! Hope that's the last we hear of him.

Oops, sorry Floyd86, I was under the impression that it was your version of the lightbulb on that page.

Yeah, that guy was just asking for trouble! :x

Honestly, who would do a thing like that!? I could go on ranting about this all day but I have to start a site to sell Anim8or on. :P JUST JOKING.

Anyway, he shouldn't have done that! I do hope that's the last wee see of him.

MudBox is free? The Trial/Demo is the only thing I can find for free?
http://www.amazon.com/Autodesk-498A2-05A00B-P101A-Mudbox-2009/dp/B0026N1G02

The rest are all free though. I hope this guy gets sent to jail.

mudbox cost 600 dollars on the autodesk website.

I've contacted the site and they haven't given a solid reply.  Unfortunately I don't have a lot of leverage. :(

Post by: Arik_the_Red on June 23, 2009, 11:32:01 pm
Well, I was sort of digging around about that software and where it was being promoted.  It would appear that the Blender-folks were hot about it, and had been pushing to put the bum out of whack.

Well, we sure have a bunch of psychopaths here don't we? lol

Last I heard the blender guys/gals took care of the 'problem', they have more leeway then we do.

This guy seems to be up to his old tricks again.. But I don't see any anim8or screenshots. Just Blender and Pencil.

I wonder how anyone'll ever get him to stop... I want to strangle the site since I can't get to him. ::)

The links in the first post still work and they are still advertising selling Blender... Maybe I should go to them instead of here, but this is a topic about it, so I thought I'd point out that he's still selling this stuff..
I know he hasn't just abandoned it because it says, "This offer closes April 4th!" or something like that.

Makes me sick..

What a rip off! I can go get this stuff for free! I thought he was out of business, so I'm gonna ask him about his intentions.

Go right ahead, my friend. .. Anything we can do to bring this thing down is okay by me.

Even the psychopaths part. ;) J/K
