Tangent Labs' founder Jeff Bell & team join Autodesk


I wonder what the implications of this acquisition are? Tangent was a huge supporter of a Blender-based pipeline.

Yeah, my face also changed to :thinking: when I read this news.

I guess Autodesk is aiming to start creating its own 3D productions, following Blender’s open movie projects, but for profit.

Well played Autodesk. Get them when they are going through a rough patch. :ok_hand:


Stuff like this makes me feel even more lucky we have Ton Roosendaal.

Tangent animation closed while ago.
They are just salvaging some money by selling Tangent Labs developers to Autodesk.
I don’t think Autodesk have interest in LoUPE.
They probably want the team for ShotGun.
