In this regard, it would be wise to introduce a differentiated subscription method - you can subscribe to AA, you can subscribe to only one plugin (or as many as you need, or only two options - one plugin or all plugins).
Or you pay for the upgrade of your boxed license, which includes only the update of the standalone program and the plugin.
I hope Otoy will take into account such needs.
The AA fee - at $14.99/ Month (through BF) is already very low, and mostly covering ongoing user support and overhead over 1-3 years of new updates an services beyond today's V4 perpetual licences now on sale. We could take out the extra plug-ins, cloud services and render slaves (which is what happens in 3 yrs with rent to own if you don't keep up paying annually), but it wouldn't materially affect the annual price. As I pointed out before, if we kept doing version upgrades like V2-V3 at $79, with three or more a year (as we're now doing) you are already the $238 /Yr price we have now.
