Autodesk Inc. has announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all the assets of Skymatter Ltd., the developer of Mudbox 3D modelling software.
This acquisition will augment Autodesk’s offering for the film, television and game market segments, while providing additional growth opportunities for other design disciplines. Autodesk anticipates that the transaction will close in the next two months.
Skymatter is a privately held New Zealand-based company. Mudbox software offers 3D brush-based modelling, allowing users to sculpt organic shapes in 3D space with brush-like tools.
