Just an FYI, Autodesk is not continuing to upgrade Autodesk VIZ for the next round of releases. The last we will see of VIZ is the current 2008 version. In its place is a copy of 3ds MAX, named Autodesk 3ds MAX Design 2009. As far as I can tell this version and Autodesk 3ds MAX 2009 are exactly the same although there might be some library differences. From what I heard this will be followed by future separation as Design tracking along as a AEC product while just MAX will continues to be heavily developed for gaming companies.
If you have VIZ licenses shortly you will be able to cross-grade them to Design lics for about $250 each. Contact your reseller for more information.
