My account looks like this: i purchased the 199/yr AA upgrade extension..
I had v3/v4 that got the free update.
Sooo.. did i screw up .. or do i not really have an enterprise AA license now? I am getting an error with every c4d plugin i try.. no matter the "description"
Is the AA "enterprise" one just not out yet?
Here is what see,,, forums support no one seems to respond!
I took some time to read it through, and want to make sure I understand everything right, as the subject is very confusing.
Please let me know if I'm right/wrong in any following:
1) The only way to use 2+gpu is to have an enterprise license($699).
2) The only way to have updates to "1)" is AA($199/y). (Including all AA features)
3) By having Enterprise+AA on my "PC1"(8gpu), I can use another "PC2"(7gpu) as render slave without an additional license.
4) I can use studio subscription(rented) on my "PC3"(2gpu) with restriction to online use only. Also, it does not include additional render node.
5) The license on "PC3" cannot open the same project files as licenses on "PC1" and "PC2", and the opposite.
6) I can exchange/rent to own my enterprise license for 3years of updates without AA features. //How can I do so in case I want to?
7) If I cancel AA, I go back to v4 2018. //Would love to see some kind of substance upgrade plan implemented.
Thanks for your time.

5) Should be able to open up the files regardless if they are subscriptions or enterprise.
6) Hm, can you rephrase this one for me?

first of all congratulations for the release of V4. It is great to see how many useful updates you made this year and also how you listened to users and improved features and plugins like the Maya-plugin.
There is only one concern I have after reading the purchase plans, I have the feeling that recent investments of plugins are not credited for the near future.
It is great to have a free upgrade for V4 but the first stable 2018 release is planned to be released in a few weeks and so I have the feeling that all investments for previous licenses don't pay off soon.
Please find a way that recent plug in and standalone investments will be credited for 2018+ too, since this version is already around the corner.
Compared to Redshift and Autodesk payment schemes, I found the non-subscription / perpetual license solutions always a fair option for the users and I am a bit tired of all the subscription models being offered within the 3D industry nowadays. There are some tools where monthly subscription makes sense - If you don't use them on a regular basis for example but a render plugin is a constant helper that you might need almost daily.
I don't want to overshadow the wonderful release of V4 too much since 2018/2019 is not out yet (as stable build), but please find a way of giving Octane 2018+ users a benefit if they have invested heavily in Standalone and / or Plugin-Licenses before and still want to be up-to-date with Octane.
