Looking at the second video I hardly see anything that would make this product a viable competitor in this Autodesk world. Nice software, no doubt, but nothing earth-shattering, nothing that will have AD developers or execs tremble in their boots.
I can (and secretly even hope to be) mistaken, though...
;)

yep, its hard to say, it all comes down how good the renderer will be and how good the data management will be. change things while working on projects is basic, how will this work with clarisse without ot create to much overhead?

A bit cheesy presentation - with all "what you want", "the way you want" - but great music. I wonder who is the artist/band that created it.

I like the concept of rendering and compositing at the same time. Too bad for me that Softimage Illusion is dead now and mental ray integration has no progressive rendering feature

After some work with SI 2013 release I see every student that can be viable competitor to Autodesk now :D

Some of these ideas, where in softimage 5 years ago, with the fx compositor, the render region etc etc.
Then Avid get in trouble, and autodesk come: and now we got the crow fx and the new "high quality" ( :)) ) viewport ad new features.
I'm glad to see some real, REAL, innovation here. Hope they got it to work.

Clarisse is more a competitor to relight from bakery or foundrys katana, not softimage.

I agree.
A lot will no doubt depend on what they mean by their ominous statement "expect 3 to 4 digit number prices"

But more importantly, from their recent press release:
Quote:
Clarisse™ iFX™, the first member of its Clarisse's high-end 3D animation software product family designed for professional CG artists. {my highlight - HB}
(Quoted from here)
Makes me wonder what goodies are still to come. Will there eventually be a Clarisse ÜberApp that lets you model, rig and everything else too. Is there still hope for a new true "generalist package"?

Hah i'm suddenly reminded of "Unlimited Detail" http://unlimiteddetailtechnology.com/ remember that? =))
It should've "changed the whole industry" by now...

Not saying this is as mad as that though i was just reminded, i like the idea of compostiting and shading at the same time but i'm very dubious of these billion of polygon claims...

Btw i don't see any alpha to try out, would love to be proven wrong! ;)

Hmm, some would consider that a grave insult to the folks at Isotropix... b-(
They've stated themselves they are currently in "private beta", but we should expect to hear from them soon...
