At the moment I'm not sure what to get, it basically a choice out Autodesk's Combustion, Apple Motion or Apple Shake. So far there's are my thoughts: Combustion - I am trained in this and have a copy of Combustion 3, but not sure when version 5 will be release for Mac OSX. Motion - Will Apple sell it seperate from FCS2? because I dont want to spend more than AU$1,000. Plus I wont use any of the other FCS2 applications Shake 4 - It is cheaper but I would it be foolish to buy a product that Apple isn't developing anymore? But it also has the feature that I need and probably would use in the not too distant future. Any ideas people?
