Autodesk Hit Portland!

Posted by visualz, 17 May 2011 8:00 pm

A few of us recently had the opportunity to visit the great city of Portland, Oregon on the 2011 Autodesk M&E roadshow. This was in support of our ongoing launch and promotion of the 2012 software product lineup as well as the Entertainment Creation Suites.

My good friend and fellow senior Technical Specialist, Marcel deJong and I tag-team-presented for just over three hours and covered every M&E software application including Autodesk 3ds Max 2012 and Maya 2012 - as well as the Suites interop of these two products in tandem with Motionbuilder 2012, Softimage 2012, Mudbox 2012, Composite 2012 and Matchmover 2012. We were going a mile a minute and both really came away from the event (exhausted) and pleased with the enthusiasm of the attendees. It was a blast, for sure.

Thanks very, very much to everyone who made it out to the event! I know I personally spoke to several people who drive over two hours to make it, and I hope we didn’t disappoint!

I highly encourage any readers of this blog entry to keep your eyes and ears peeled for more roadshow events promoting the 2012 product line up. My team is covering all of North America in the next few weeks so check in with your local reseller and I also suggest everyone to follow M&E on facebook to keep up with upcoming events, webinars and more!

For more information and 30 day trial versions of the individual 2012 software products as well as the Entertainment Creation Suites, please check the “Products” link at the top of this AREA website.
