When a technology preview ends, one of three things can happen:
- The technology undergoes another cycle to get additional feedback.
- The technology preview retires. It could come back at a later date. It is just not available for now.
- The technology graduates to the next step and is available via something other than Autodesk Labs, e.g., Autodesk App Exchange or Autodesk Subscription Center.
The technology preview for Sci-Viz for 3ds Max ceased operation on November 1. In this case, we have a mix between choice 2 and choice 3. The autoPACK/cellPack team has plans to make it available for 3ds Max 2014, but it will just take a little time — targeted to November 5 (tomorrow).
Think of it like graduating but having to go to summer school before getting one's diploma.
Thanks for everyone who downloaded the technology preview and provided feedback.
Graduation will soon be alive in the lab.
