PMG- Dare to Share... promotion

Post by richlevy »

PMG, makers of project Messiah, an animation and render engine. Cool tool, cool company is offering their software at a very decent price... with a catch. If they meet their goal, you get a license to their software (the regular version 10.00, the studio version for 40.00)
: 'This offer is open to: Individuals, small businesses, hobbyists, starving artists, the unemployed, schools, students, CG studios, game developers, plugin developers, architects, tinkerers, compositors and aspiring movie makers, in any country. Limit 4 copies per customer, mix and match.'

I just ordered another 2 copies based on the price. This is a great way to get a solid animation and rendering tool (rendreing is only in the Studio version 40.00).

Cheers

what is exactly their goal? (numbers of people)
what happens if they don't meet their goal? you lost your money?
where can we see the bar that they speak on their site?
i am not sure to understand all.

Hey Rich. Sounds like a great deal! Wow!
Why would we need multiple copies if we are individuals?
Probably because it is one license per computer/laptop.

Which one did you get?

Thanks Rich!

Hm I wonder how often they update their 'progress bar'. No change in 30 minutes. Maybe I am over anxious eh?

EDIT: Just got updated; doubled in length. WooHoo!

Looks like they will hit their mark TODAY. :bananacool2:

I'm poor and I couldn't pass this one up. There is a question of what happens if they don't reach the goal. Do we get a refund? It is very unlikely that would happen of course and this is a company of good reputation so I'm not worried about that.

Messiah was on my dream list. Now I'll be prepared (really really prepared) for character animation and I'll have its renderer and other neat stuff until then.
I got the pro version.

Just to let you know, the $10 one does have rendering, I suppose it's just not
with unlimited render nodes. That's my understanding of the features
in the basic edition.

They really needed a "shot in the arm," I hope this does it.
The ones who already paid will probably be pissed!

I got it, but am learning with Carrara because that one has good training
materials.

Well, I figure, if they don't hit the mark, which is unlikely, they just won't charge us.
Worst, Really Really Stupid option would be: they'd charge the full price which would spell:

Massive Class Lawsuit, slashed tires, broken windows, etc. :bananamad:

EDIT:
I bought two; I wonder if I only needed one.
Hmm... if I do only need one, perhaps the 2nd purchase could be used for something.... hmm :)
