Maxon Subscribtion Plan Discussions

So did I miss something concerning MAXON actually dropping their prices?  Honestly, I don't see that happening -- I mean something has to pay for the Redshift acquisition and I do see opportunities where an acquisition strategy in key areas makes sense.

 

For DCC companies to keep up with the pace of technological change internally is becoming more and more of an investment problem.  The pace of change the and the technical challenges  these changes represent increase each year.  You can meet those challenges with internal hiring (which MAXON has been doing) but at some point, you have slow that down given the costs.   Acquisitions in key areas that are not core to MAXON's competitive advantage may be a faster/cheaper/better way of keeping up.  If so, I don't foresee a price cut unless MAXON's market share is just so glorious that it keeps them cash rich.

 

So....did I miss something where there was actual discussion from MAXON concerning a price "cut" --- or just new pricing "models" (they are rarely the same for everyone....some people are going to end up paying more)?

I don't think that they are going to drop their prices.

 

What would be AMAZING is an indie edition like many other softwares have. Or something completely free like what Houdini has, just for personal use. Or even an alternative subscription model.

 

There's probably A LOT of people that use C4D for their own personal work and in their freetime, and let's be honest now, not even close to all of them shell out thousands of dollars for that. So they just pirate it. But at some point you might want to go commercial, make it your job. And then you have this insanely steep price for Studio, which is, in my opinion, the only real C4D version which is worth it. This is where a revenue limited version would help immensely. To make that jump into the commercial space without fear of losing thousands of dollars on something that might not work out.

 

Blender is always there yes, but if you start with a software at some point it's increadibly tedious to switch.

Is that the first time MAXON's CEO has not only visited the forum but actually posted on it?"

 

Seems to be different style CEO than before

 

My only hope MAXON is not bought by Adobe, that would be a sad day...

No need to wait for that answer, I can give you one and the answer is no, Maxon is not for sale...at least not in the near future, but as always, things could change, but so far, this not going to happen, so feel free to celebrate! :P
