We recently announced that Mudbox is now available as a desktop subscription for $10 a month. We also announced that we have dropped the price for purchase to $495. This is excellent news for all users. I thought I would take a moment to discuss what this means for users and their daily creative pursuits. First of all, we dropped the price of Mudbox from $795 down to $495 and this certainly makes life easier for purchasing a license of Mudbox. Secondly, we have added Mudbox to the ever-growing portfolio of Autodesk Desktop Subscription offerings at the bargain price of $10 per month. The flexibility this offers to artists out there is fantastic. The ability to sculpt, paint and visualize all within one package for these price offerings is awesome.
One of the areas that we really want to provide a great amount of this flexibility to is within the Indie Game market. We are seeing Indie Game developers wanting the ability to have access to Mudbox for short period of times, or on a per-project basis, without the commitment of a perpetual license. Desktop Subscription gets you access to use Autodesk software for a specified period of time, with the option to renew.
Desktop Subscription offers (during the period of Subscription) benefits similar to a perpetual license with Maintenance Subscription, including basic support and, for most products, access to select Autodesk 360 cloud services. Other benefits include:
• Scalable Licensing — Quickly scale up and down to manage a variety of temporary project and staffing needs.
• Pay When You Need it — With Desktop Subscription, you pay for access to software only when you actually need it, giving you the flexibility to control costs without an up-front license investment or long-term commitment.
• The Latest Software — Stay current with the latest releases and product enhancements.
