Wow! First Adobe buys Macromedia and now Autodesk buys Alias. What next? Autodesk buys Bentley?
That is amazing news and is likely to see MAX and Maya merged into a single product in the future (I would guess) although I can't see either user base being happy about that. Financially, it makes sense for Autodesk to buy out their nearest rival but what are they going to do with it?
