Autodesk Discontinues Stand-Alone ImageModeler Sales7 Oct, 2009 By: Cadalyst Staff
Beginning in November, ImageModeler 2009 software and ImageModeler 2009 upgrades can only be purchased in combination with other Autodesk software.
Autodesk has announced that as of November 2, 2009, licenses of Autodesk ImageModeler 2009 software and ImageModeler 2009 upgrades will no longer be available for purchase as stand-alone products. Users will only be able to obtain a license of ImageModeler 2009 when they purchase a license of Autodesk 3ds Max 2010, Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2010, or Autodesk Maya 2010 software with Autodesk Subscription.
Users who wish to upgrade their existing ImageModeler software license, or buy additional licenses, have through November 1, 2009, to do so. Autodesk will continue to honor its 30-day support policy for new licenses of ImageModeler 2009, and will continue to make learning resources available at www.autodesk.com/imagemodeler. The ImageModeler User Forum will also remain active.
According to Autodesk, existing ImageModeler clients — of which there are fewer than 100 — have been informed of this decision.
