    Those are both very cool freebies. I've been using ShaderMap Pro for this sort of thing--it's cheap and works great--but it's good to see there's an online alternative if I'm in a pinch and don't have access to SMP.

    Thanks for posting these links.

    they say -- For such artists, one of the key benefits of Athera will be that you don’t need to buy or maintain expensive hardware to run a business: everything runs in the cloud, with only the display being streamed to the user.

    what are they talking about - at 1200 a month - in two months you can just buy a dedicated machine, one more month and you have the software - so how is it economical?

    My recent experience with LW/Octane online license checks (granted it's not the final release), Adobe cloud / Autodesk licensing issues at work, and internet at home going down for a few days makes me look upon anything cloud based as the antithesis of productivity, stress free environment and economy.

    Who would pay montly for blender and modo at that price?
    Autodesk didn't join. They did buy Lagoa a while back. Maybe they have their own version soon.

    I'm more a fan of browser based software than using the cloud.
