i have tried to make sense of it all, but short of reading all of the forum posts its kind of impossible to make heads or tails of all of this

----
i have been there, waiting for the announced features for months upon months.
SaaS is surely attractive for much of the software companies but in the hurry to rake in the money and lock in the costumers, the "service" part is paid little attention to.
i actually gave you the benefit of the doubt and got onto the wagon and now feel more and more scammed out of my money. i know you guys are working hard but like i said the track record has been and remains abysmal.
as joss wrote it few pages back, octane always felt like half alpha half beta, never a stable software i have serious doubts that anything will change.
----

what remains is the fact that octane provides the most gorgeous looking images out there and it saddens me that you have taken this route. i, once again, have to look into alternatives.
best render quality, best support. (beppe is the king!) horrible management apparently.
i dont mean to be vitriolic or offensive, just trying to give a user perspective. hope you take it that way. on the whole i have nothing but the greatest respect for what you are putting together, but it does not seem that you feel the same way about your users.

I have been a long time user and a happy custumer of octane render. i am really disappointed about the new subscription model.
The subscription model is something that i really dont like.
The adobe model is basically a scam in my opinion. and i will never go back in a similar situation again.

So i hope otoy is gonna go back to sell software as they did in the past. but if they dont i see no other alternative but to use redshift.

that said octane is a really amazing piece of software, thanks for everything! bye!!

I'm on the fence whether to go with the subscription model, or keep Octane 4. I am all in for options. I'd rather upgrade to 2019 perpetual than susbscription. My requirements for rendering have shifted a lot just the past couple years. I don't render as much as I used to. A perpetual license would suit me a lot more than subscription. I'd feel like I'm paying for a service I don't use, vs. having Octane ready to go at any time, even in the future.

Honest opinion; I'm disappointed.
