Neil Blevins to discontinue support for Soulburnscripts
Neil Blevins has announced that he will discontinue the development and maintenance of the popular collection of tools Soulburnscripts after the release of Max 2022.
Neil has made no secret of the fact that he is “100% against rental only software”, so his decision following Autodesk’s recent announcement that it is to end perpetual licensing should not come as a surprise.
The scripts will remain available, with one final update in April 2021 to add compatibility with 3dsmax 2022. And as scripts aren’t like plugins that require compiling after ever SDK break, it is reasonable to assume that they will work for some time to come. Neil has said that if anyone wishes to modify the script pack to be compatible with later versions, they are free to do so as long as they continue to be distributed free of charge.
The CGPress team would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Neil Blevins for his hard work and dedication in maintaining this excellent resource including the many articles on CG education he has published over a nearly 20 year period.
