Autodesk Mudbox 2009 is now available for the Mac OS X platform

Autodesk has announced that Mudbox 2009 for the Mac is now available. Designed by professional artists in the film, game, and design industries, Mudbox 2009 combines a highly intuitive interface with a powerful toolset of stencils and brushes for creating ultra-realistic 3D characters, environments and props. The software gives artists the freedom to create 3D digital artwork as if they were working with clay and paint.

Mudbox 2009 for the Mac OS X contains the same powerful creative toolset as the Windows release. For more information, visit www.autodesk.com/mudbox.

Thats pretty cool. I\'m glad they are making everything for multiple plateforms.

Um, you might have a couple issues with the links on this article.

It\'s great that Autodesk Mudbox is now for macs but it\'s not UB so it wipes out the possibility for access to a rather large market as not everyone can afford to get a new Intel based mac. Sad but true.

At this point, I hope Apple can keep up with Autodesk. There\'s not 64 bit support for Maya on Mac because there is no Snow Leopard.

This is a common misconception. You don\'t need Snow Leopard to run 64-bit applications - they run fine on Leopard since it has specific system extensions to handle 64-bit memory addressing. I run the 64-bit Maxwell Render client all the time on 10.5 and I\'ve seen it take over 6GB of my 24GB of RAM. Ditto for Houdini on OS X, which was always 64-bit. Snow Leopard just brings it to most OS X applications and the system kernel. Mudbox is built on Qt, which has 64-bit Cocoa libraries but Autodesk hasn\'t updated them yet so it\'s still 32-bit in MB 2010.
