I may give Vector Works another shot if they will give me a 30 day grace period to try it out. I need upgrade 4 seats and why not go Mac if I can if what you say is true about other companies not knowing the difference.

Then there shouldn't be a problem. The 30 day grace period is standard.

I think you mean HyperCard, not HyperText. Hypertext is a word that was introduced by Ted Nelson in 1965. What HyperCard did was neither new nor unique. The same is true for Maya's HyperGraph. You will, for instance, find the same principle in Shake or Houdini. Even CINEMA 4D has its own incarnation of the thing with XPresso.

Ah... of course

Thanks for the extra detail- I've been meaning to have a sneaky peak at Houdini for a while. Enjoy the show today.

I feel a lot better about AutoDesk since Maya 8.5 is Universal and all bonus tools for all systems were relaesed simultaneously, BUT Apple should still acquire AutoDesk. The fact of the matter is that high end compositors, like SHAKE, have become critical to the production pipeline for compositing 3D passes, from apps like Maya, and then intergrating those with film footage. AutoDesk acquired Alias, mostly because they're compositing apps which are tied to 3D apps are dying and they are trying to tie Maya directly into Toxik to resurrect those apps. Perfect integration of 3D and compositing tools is the WHOLE ENCHILADA. Apple would do well to not rely on a competitor to provide that integration especially when Apple is better at software integration than anyone else.
