Im posting this in case people arent aware of it. If its old news, I apologize. But in the event people are still bleeding over the regular subscription prices, I thought id be good to put on blast.
As of mid-2019, Autodesk started offering an "Indie" subscription pricing structure for Maya and 3ds max. If youre making less than $100k/year then you are eligible. The software is fully functional no restrictions. Its now $265 a year.
This was released by Autodesk with very little fanfare, and regular users were not informed of the pricing change
So to the home or freelance users still forkng out $200 a month, this is welcome news.
