  1. I think your announcement date for Softimage 2010 might be wrong. This was somewhere in August 2009, if I recall correctly. My own post about the announcement on the si-community was dated the 3. of August 2009 ( )

  2. I wonder if it might take longer since a lot of the core team are gone.
    Atleast i hope to see soon what new goods it brings, i hope ice get’s more power by being able to acces more things in softimage.

    • I don’t think the change of teams can be used as a valid excuse for delays anymore. They used up that excuse already when they told us there wouldn’t be a SAP/Extension last year…

      • There’s a release schedule to stick to, and that is determined far in advance. In general, SAPs were on their way out at Autodesk. I had people in other divisions telling me that years ago.
