I am really tired of not being able to do high quality modelling in Rhino and Alias pricing is simply outrageous. I feel like Autodesk is only screwing up the industry by their constant acquisitions of good softwares and then implementing them to their packages and shooting the price right up to the moon. Now, before this turns into a long rant I would really appreciate if fellow programmers here would share some insights about what it takes to write plugins such as VSR.
I am coming from Design background I can do quality class A modelling and thus know what tools we need and why etc. I can do a bit of python scripting (in vred) and I did some basic C programming for Arduino in uni but that’s about it so really, I would like to know what programming language I would need to learn and whether this is even feasible (I know Autodesk has a ton of developers working on any particular software so I was wondering how far I could get with this (on my own for now).
As you can tell I know nothing about software development and I am only trying to evaluate this idea to see whether it is worth investing my time and effort in this.
