Autodesk unveils 3DS Max App Store3 Comments
Autodesk has unveiled the 3DS Max App store, an extension to its Autodesk Exchange Apps website. According to the description, the "Autodesk Exchange Apps provides a centralized storefront for Autodesk customers to find apps that enhance their productivity". Apps are defined as anything a customer finds useful, including plugins, standalone applications, training tutorials, e-books, etc. The FAQ states that Autodesk at some point in the future may take a commission that could be up to 30%, but for now it's taking zero commission on sales.
The App Store does not seem to limit licensing of content to a certain region or offer varying prices according to geographic regions, and as such offers a contrast with Autodesk policies for its own software.

(Errata / Addenda) A correction is in order to this news item published yesterday. The Autodesk App Store was first introduced in AutoCAD 2012 as the Autodesk Apps Tab, back in 2011. It was later made available as a website in 2012 and its add-ons expanded to other Autodesk software; it has now been extended to 3DS Max (and other software).
