I'm probably going to be the only one posting photos, but anyone else that has some is welcome to post too.
The photos included with this post are from a demo done at the autodesk booth with the support of a booth across the asile from a mocap company called NaturalPoint. Demonstrated LIVE, they did a workflow starting in 3ds MAX-MotionBuilder-MAX-Mudbox-MAX. Incredible! They pushed a hero carachter out from max to motionbuilder, then mapped contraint points on the character to the live human, recorded motion, pushed the mocap and model back into 3ds max, then out to mudbox for some custom modeling for body armor on the hero and then back into 3ds max.

Saved the best for last...
Pixar, again was recruiting the most talented hands...

3ds MAX Zelda. Upcoming release of 3ds max. technology preview!
in the max tech preview, they showed how mental images new iray tech would work within 3ds max or on a cloud system. I pretty much wet my pants during this session. Near real time rendering. Uses existing mental ray materials/lights/render engine. Works on the GPU+CPU. Works from a cloud system too. Works in the background if you want. Cooks your breakfast and clips your toenails for an added fee. UNREAL!!!! Talk to your local autodesk rep and tell them you need realtime rendering in MAX!!!!
