    Actually, (and only Robert can correct me if I'm wrong), I believe he's upset because the automation would replace some of the "extra" modellers the industry currently uses.
    Unfortunately, if this is the case, it's a bit of the migrant-worker-upset-because-the-farmer-started-using-a-thresher complaint. If not, I just came across as a huge ass. (And if so, I'm so sorry, Robert. I did not mean to offend you!)

    No, I'm not highly-strung offended :) Just think that it's hard to say that you can automate this or that artistically... I only wish it were the case. For 3D, new tools are coming along all the time - way out of any sane budget though.

    For 3D I think we're gonna see a lot prefab stuff taking place. Cars, street lamps, etc... it's like scouting for a place to shoot the next episode of xyz - they don't rebuild the sets each time.

    Till that day, it's slave away in front of the monitor... don't understand the migrant thresher thing you're talking about. I do this for a living.

    You've just identified your niche. If you think an application such as this is useful, then write it and sell as a plug-in to Max, or Lightwave.
