It's many years since I've used Max but I've started using it again helping in a medical project.

It's specifically only a small part of the program the guys will be using (involving making connect object poly objects) They will not qualify for educational license but cannot afford a full Max.

I seem to recall that AutoDesk didn't allow a Max license to be transferred. Is that still the case or will we be able to buy and old copy of (say) Max R5.

If it is possible how would I go about finding one, eBay appears not to have anything.

Thanks for help

Alan -

Here's what Autodesk has to say about it:

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=13409518&l...

Be careful of the "bargain" Max products on Ebay - I almost purchased what was "guaranteed" to be an "official" copy of Max 2010 for a fraction of the price. I contacted the seller several times and was promised that it was the real thing. I was so hesitant that I finally convinced him to send me the copy of Max without my paying, with the promise that if it was real, I would pay immediately. When I received the copy, it was so obviously a fake (inkjet printed DVD cover, folder on the DVD that said "CRACK") that I got back to him and told him "I'm going to throw this away, and you're never going to get in touch with me again about it!"

Caveat Emptor! If the price is really really good, it's too good to be real. I ended up with Max 2011 for around 3000 bucks. It's real, it's supported, and it will pay for itself. Good luck.

Thanks Joseph.

It looks like Discreet are still preventing genuine transfer of license.

We just want about 5% of Max R5 and want to be legit, but it looks like this is just not possible. I've researched other packages, specifially for the equivalent of the 'connect object. that we need but without success so far.

All the best

Alan
