  1. Thanks for the reply. Kind of complicated but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
  2. Previously, my MSA allowed me to install Cinema on two computers. I just downloaded and installed 21 on one computer and when I attempted to install it on my second computer I got a screen saying 1 used / 1 available Is this correct?
  3. I hope you're right. That's how I read the situation.
  4. Now I'm confused. My MSA renews in March. Do I have to renew now to get 21 or am I good to go as is? Thanks in advance for any clarification you can offer.
  5. I'm glad 3D-Pangel and RBarret got this cleared up. It was the one question that bothered me. But I think this forum and the CGTalk forum (and any others) should have a banner at the top that says: LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP - YOU LOSE YOUR PERPETUAL LICENSE IF YOU ACCEPT THE DISCOUNT TO CONVERT TO SUBSCRIPTION I can't imagine anyone would consider the cost savings from the discount balances out against no longer having a perpetual license.
  6. There's another significant difference. You get a discount by moving up the ladder if you start with Prime. So, for instance, if you own Prime and want to upgrade to Broadcast, your price is less than if you were buying Broadcast outright. BodyPaint isn't in the lineup, it's a stand alone application. If you own BodyPaint and want to upgrade to Broadcast the price is the same as buying Broadcast as a new user.
  7. Looks like a major release but it also makes me wonder if MAXON is looking at an EOL for Bodypaint. The program is now so far behind the times, it's UV tools are so cumbersome compared to other applications that it seems MAXON has no interest in its future. Or at least it seems that way based on today's release.
  8. Can someone give me some advice for how to get colored reflections thru a glass shelf in Cinema? I can get them in Thea / rhino but not C4D I'm using the Clear Glass from GSGfor the shelves, an Infinite light and an HDRI on Sky This is BodyPaint so it's the Standard renderer. Thanks for any advice you can give.
  9. That looks interesting. Any way to get an older copy of QT that supports VR?
  10. Had a similar experience to you - one company slid from dominance to irrelevance over the course of 2 years, another company with offices in NY, Miami, LA & Portland announced on a Friday that paychecks were going to be delayed a couple of days and then closed their doors on Monday (but they made good on the paychecks). I'm freelance now. There's ups and downs with this kind of life but at least I'm not at the mercy of somebody else's bad accounting practices. You have to be out in the field, banging on doors, following up leads, always looking for the next client. And you have to be available to work anytime, weekends and evenings, in order to compensate for the days that you don't have work. But I've done well the last couple of years so right now freelance seems the way to go for me. You might want to try it.
  11. Am I correct in reading the product page to mean that after paying for a permanent license there's a $250 yearly maintenance fee that, if not paid, the software will not function? Or does the product page mean that keeping the maintenance current means you'll be able to use any new version but if you don't paythe maintenance fee you'll still be able to use the version you bought.
  12. The investment bubble and the expanding use of cryptos are two different things. The investment bubble could burst without affecting the expansion of cryptos as financial vehicles. Sort of like the Internet stock bubble - because that burst doesn't mean the Internet went down with it. Cryptos are probably here to stay.
  13. The email says the MSA hasn't been increased since the year it began - 2008. And in the Americas this will only affect the Studio version.
  14. Thanks so much, as is so often the case with your replies - made my day easier and more productive.
