Hi Again, Greeble.
I'm glad that your not red in the face....thou you seem to be little tense with your opinion
As for my comments,
I haven't been a fanboy for anyone or anything for sometime
I speak my thoughts and opinions...not someone else's.
As for the past of Mirage... that is in the past...
and has little to nothing to do with what is going on with TVPaint Dev.
As I stated, TVPaint Dev. (who now owns Mirage ,etc...) is allowing us users a discount...to their TVPaint Pro.
Which they don't need to do.
I have not stated one way or the other...if the price for it is high or low...just that is what TVPaint Dev...is selling it for.
They could not allow anyone with Mirage to have a discount...(considering the past) but they have...so why say that they are out of line ?
What I'm saying isn't a cheering squad...just stating facts...and my thoughts.
So the price is too high for you...(and maybe others) but put that into context of their main pricing...not the disount they are giving.
If you feel that TVPaint Pro...is too high..fine...then please start a thread...with that as its core...letting TVPaint Dev. know your reasoning
And not just that you don't have the money....but realities of the market...(and you should understand the realities of their development as well).
(said with respect) But whining, that you expected something more due to you owning Mirage...isn't an arguement.
TVPaint Dev...could have just killed it...and required a full license to TVPaint Pro...which many did even before TVPaint Dev. offered the discount.
Yes, I've been around awhile...but you might want to stop reacting...and let some of the above realities sink in.
Here's something for you to think about...outside of TVPaint Pro...what other Paint over time apps do you know of...or use ?
What's the price of a flame license...and system to run it ?
or inferno ?
What is the cost of a quantel system ?
What is the price of Fusion ?
Photoshop still doesn't support this kind of work environment...thou it is a very powerful application.
And then add the animators tools...
Yes there are other apps out there...and there might even be an open source solution someday...but from what I've seen it isn't here yet.
