Their latest "marketing" scheme is to run a viral campaign. This looks almost too good to be true. I thought Slashdot might, just might, be interested.
from the website.
"We're doing an unprecedented viral test marketing campaign where your success in sharing this offer will allow you and others to get our amazing award winning animation and rendering software ( messiahStudio5 ) for the unheard of price of just $10 (regularly $499) or choose the Pro version for just $40 (regularly $1195). When this experiment ends, the prices will return to normal.
This is the same software that studios and individuals, in more than 60 countries of the world, have been using to create visual effects for some of your favorite movies, commercials, games and music videos; and now you can get it at a no excuses price, if you "Dare To Share(TM)".
Check it out. (By the way, I'm not in anyway related to the company!).
