with the recent showcase of playing games remotley at E3 this year i said to a friend if they can get that to work..why not 3d apps also?

upside...
no major hardware requirements..just a good connection.
no install...just log in.

downside...
"no go" on the go 3d if that's the only way..on set...which could be in a net black spot.
no 3d if your connection fails
security of files for say a AAA game title or feature film.

Great idea, looks like Autodesk is innovative company, but... what's the point in supporting Windows only?

Not only for that. With this technique, Autodesk can look over your shoulder at every step you do, even moths after the fact (if they keep the user-input data). I wonder what their privacy policy is on that.
And when all programs are finaly 'on-line only', I'm sure the gouvernment has some intrest in that user-input data, you know... to check for terrorists.

Still...there are always people who think that is a good idea...

I am working for defence contractor and there is no chance that we will be using online programs anytime in the future.

You mean when Bin Laden logs in to do a highly complicated dynamics simulation in maya to see if his next target will go down if he hits it with enough newton force fields? Yeah that is a scary thought indeed. Hopefully houdini never gets online. imagine what terrorists could do if they got their grubby little fingers on this weapon of mass destruction.

Bin Laden is Linux he's OLDSKOOL , hence why you install a firewall , cut all connections , or even better use an offline machine :P

Edit /\ who needs to render schematics , when you have google street (",)

with cloud computing you could run 3dsmax on a linux or max osx computer as the actual 'install' on the server would be windows but people using could in theroy use 'any' operating system..maybe even a iphone!

Where you save your project?
What happen with hackers?
What happen is server crash?
What happen is your internet go out?

Hard to work online without nice conection. I think this is only to remove piracy but not have advantage to client. All more slow or you think they want to have 1 i7 per aplication?
The server go to share 1 computer for a lot of users...

1.save..well same as google docs...on the server.
2.hackers..same with home or cloud email...security apps.
3.servers have redundant back ups just like websites do..
4.internet down?...cry...walk around the house like a lost person with no value at all... just as you do now!:D

But not here, Windows only, I guess that you need to be able to install some ActiveX or they will give you some Windows application that works as the interface only.

if they work it like the game showcased at E3 this year thing then all you need is a browser
remember this is a 'lab' thing currently...

Read the page. Current apps are:

* AutoCAD 2010
* Autodesk Inventor 2010
* Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010

Those are Windows apps. What are you LOLing over?

Web based apps should always be platform independent or they can forget about building a substantial user base of that web based application.

I like the internet server thing for DESKTOP only games (assuming they can get the bandwidth right for millions of users). However, I don't want consoles to go away since they are easy to use and you can just download ready to play games to the HD.

I'm using teamviewer to use appz in the office. I dont even need to come in sometimes. :thumbsup:
If internet becomes fast enough. No need for the office to have the app. Just install on the net. Lol

For some reason, I'm hoping people don't take this stuff to the next level for serious work. But marketing wise it's an ok idea.
