Hello all,

It seems that too little difference has left between proposed Artist and current Professional editions for quite a huge gap in price. So currently, at least for the nearest future, we do not see the possibility for releasing the new edition.
However, the functionality of Standard edition may be extended by few minor features.
Best regards,
Alexey Pasumansky,

Agreed, it is great that Alexey and team are open to discussion on this and many other subjects in the forums. It is rare to see, and much appreciated.
However, it is still a disappointment to be left with the same options.

I think what makes it difficult is the vast price differential between the two versions of software. I can completely understand not wanting to cannibalize sales of your premium level product by not having enough feature separation between the two versions. But I don't think I have ever seen a larger difference in prices between a 'basic' and 'premium' version of software. It is a nearly 2000% price increase.

The pro version has some fairly important features (as indicated in this thread) to people who are working to create digital assets (games, cultural heritage, etc). Yet the price is much higher than other prices of software that are normally in the asset building pipeline (Zbrush, Mudbox, 3DCoat, etc). I understand that I am sort of talking 'apples and oranges' here, and that in the area of digital acquisition (laser scanners, structured light scanners, etc) the pricing for tools in that pipeline run much higher (and even far beyond the PS pro price).

I guess for many of us, we are just hoping there is some solution that can help bridge the gap.

Cheers, -C

Why dont we do a vote between the 5 most wanted features mentioned in this thread and decide that way which one is the one most needed?
(as far a AGI team agrees that they can implement any 1 of those features in a "artist" level software of course)

- Optimize Alignment +1
- markers (for automatically scaling and orienting a model) +1

#1. Optimize Alignment

#2. Markers

I understand the hesitation to "eat your young" by adding an intermediate edition, but I suspect there are a LOT of users like myself who are happy to pay some extra $$ for needed features but will probably never in a million years be able to justify the cost of the Professional edition.  This is untapped revenue.

I agree with Alexey's assessment.

If there was a cheaper edition with markers and optimization it would be easy to use it and another 3D program to generate ortho images. That would be lost revenue.

I also think that at $179, the standard edition is a steal for what it does.
