To the developers who have recently contacted me for trial copies of Decal Creator for the latest version of Maya,
Thank you for inquiring about Decal Creator. Unfortunately, Autodesk’s obsession with breaking plug-ins with each release of their software has put me in a position where I can’t afford to support all versions all the time. I do have the source code license available if your studio is interested in purchasing that but I would suggest trying a previous version (like Maya 2011) if you have a copy available at your studio.
The source license is quite affordable for any development studio, small and large. Also the license is a site license which means you can compile and distribute to all of your artists within that studio without additional fees. Of course, having the source code also means you can simply rebuild Decal Creator whenever your studio purchases the next copy of Maya.
I can promise you that it would cost a while lot more than my asking price to pay an engineer in your studio to develop a comparable tool.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but I just don’t sell enough units to keep buying every copy of Maya that comes out.
Thank you again for showing interesting in Decal Creator…
