I have always bought the upgrade when available and i wanted to do that now as well because of the RTX support.
Maybe i am misunderstanding and the enterprise upgrade isnt a subscription please explain.
i just dont see any justification for this price increase for a product that has always been a good price and suddenly becoming more expansive for 1 year then the previous 7 years.
It’s 199 / year for 1 year maintenance , and 349 for 2 yrs. This is equivalent to last year’s plan (called enterprise all access )
The 499 price is only HIGHER, if you optionally also want to upgrade your perpetual V3/V4 license to V2020, which is an option we did not offer last year.
Note that if you had bought 2 years of maintence last year, the 2020 perpetual update is actually free. 1 year maintence is 150 less etc.. The price is based on when you last paid for an upgrade (for most that is V3, since V4 was free upgrade). For similar example - If you miss 1 year maintenance for a floating RS license, you have to buy another $600 license to get on the latest version again.
So lets clear up some things for me personally:
option 1: stick with v4 get the maintenance for 200 or 349 and then i can use 2020.x during that period? if it expires i have to fall back to v4?
option 2: upgrade to perpetual 2020.x for 499 or 699 and then i get updates during that time period and after that date i still get to use the latest version available at the end of the maintenance period?
option 3: do nothing pay nothing keep using v4.
Maybe it helps my usecase: Revit -> export obj -> Phantom Scatter -> Octane -> render nothing more nothing less.
