thanks!

500 euros if there was a free transition from v3 to v4?

need discounts and promotions .
i never used AA (only C4D).

We have passed with you a difficult path of transition from V3 to v4 kernel.

I've been using v4 for quite some time (subscription) for Cinema 4D. I just updated to 2019.1 and excited about the improvements.

But, I got 4 x 2080ti, and unfortunately, now, only 2 are being used. What do I have to do to be able to use all 4? Another subscription??

Thanks

Excellent news!

A couple of questions:
- if I wanted to upgrade my perpetual Lightwave Ver. 4 license to perpetual 2019 - would I also get a single slave as part of that?
- when can we expect this?

I have to say.....

This really needs sorting out - We have several perpetual licences for standalone and several for 3dsmax, a couple of AA licences and a couple enterprise subscription licences with that.

This is a MESS. links to downloads don't work or link to version numbers that don't make sense- linking unity accounts is a mess., some versions are called VR some are called studio, some are called standalone and yet download enterprise versions. It is horrible. Please just consolidate everything, have one download exe for standalone and one for the plugin you prefer to use and then let the licencing system allocate the number of licences you have bought or subscribed to.

I am so angry at the amount of time I am spending sorting this nonsense out every time I want to upgrade or go back to organising my computers. We went from v3 to v4 and then so very soon after it all got changed to subscription and 2018 followed by 2019. just a little bit of forethought would have been helpful.

It is not too late - please offer a proper upgrade path from v4 to the latest version and just please please limit the number of versions available so we can just have a simple life.

I have to agree with Teknick up there, it is a mess and a nightmare for indie studios and freelancers.
Just finished a project with different artists with different accounts and we had to drop octane in favor of Redshift because we couldn't find a version to suit everyone and exchange project files accordingly.

Please unify the system and sort this out asap.

Plugins need to be sorted out too. E.g. poser plugin version 2019.1.0.95 (regular) now checks for updates and just refuses to authenticate itself, saying "please update". And there is no way to update since there is no regular version of plugin available to download.
