  1. They are working on getting this page back up. Cheers Dave
  2. How is 3DS Max cheaper? We have free licenses for students as well? Cheers Dave
  3. We will allow a transfer of r21 perpetual. We are close to uploading the information on the site. It is a different process than in the past. More info soon.
  4. I think the question is just a slight bit different. We won't be avoiding the correct features because we have a partnership with someone as was feared in a post above. The question shouldn't be "will we add a compositor" to C4D. But will we add the correct features to make sure what you do in C4D is the correct work for a given pipeline. For some pipelines some compositing would be nice. Others don't need any and some would want a full compositor. These are great discussions and ongoing internally. Where we land on this and when is TBD. I am enjoying reading this thread. Cheers Dave
  5. Thanks for the note... We shuffled a bunch of pages and probably lost a connection. Will send this thread to the web team. Cheers Dave
  6. We have various options. You can call MAXON to get the details. Thanks! Dave
  7. Also: It'd be interesting to see the full render log from the session. Do you use Atlus a third-party denoiser.
  8. Google says you should reach out to cloud support Cheers Dave
  9. I poked a few folks.. Hope they can respond in time. Cheers Dave
  10. Hi All, Here is the official answer. We haven't changed anything here yet. We are hiring and building a team to work on an educational strategy. The easy bit: Every student/teacher can get a few version. It will renew as long as you are a student. This is a full non limited version. For schools, they aren't all the same. We want universities to teach and we want to make sure they teach the latest version. So we try to engage with them. Some schools should pay others should not. Example being a company that makes money teaching software, should pay for the software they are using. Other universities are private some are public. It is a tricky balance so we need to make a plan. As of now we left things the way they have been. Cheers Dave
  11. Cairyn has it correct. You have an MSA contract with a reseller that auto renews. The last auto renews that will renew are from (mostly) European distributors and resellers in September and October. Assuming you didn't cancel it, it renews. MAXON and resellers have the same cancelation policy as you, we need to cancel the next renew 3 months in advance. If you have an MSA that renews you will get R21 perpetual (already delivered) to keep. If your MSA extends past our next perpetual release you will get that as well. Cheers Dave
  12. Since the question was asked of me... We would like to be able to offer yearly/billed monthly. Lot of work that we are looking at. Cheers Dave
  13. To answer a few questions. If you sell perpetual software with out a subscription or maintanence you can't by US law release brand new functionality. Feel free to read all the details by researching Sarbanes-Oxley law. Came out after Enron. So if you want to continuously offer new stuff you need to recognize the revenue over time in specific ways. It isn't an excuse it is a very very important thing to get correct in your accounting. That is why people talk about subscriptions as a way to give developers more flexibility to release stuff when it is done. Now, relative to Nodes and Redshift. We have a Nodes SDK ready that we have in r21 and have given to multiple developers, it won't be generally available for some time. Redshift has it working but there are some bugs they want fixed before they release it so it works better. We are working on fixing those bugs and then we will release it, current plan is soonish. Cheers Dave
  14. You can now install on any number of machines. You can use 1 concurrently and log in/out per machine. Cheers Dave
