View Full Version : what will MB 4.5 users have to do to get MB 5?

07 July 2003, 04:36 PM
I have a one year license for MB4.5. So my question is: How much would the upgrade to MB5 cost?

Also if i choose not to upgrage will i still have the option of renewing my 4.5 license for a $100? (it seems to me that 4.5PE has more functionality then 5 STD)

So basicly i'm asking if i would have to pay the full $3,495 for upgrating to MB5 Pro.

I have looked all over and haven't found a clear answer anywere.

You have to look harder, the answers are out there :)

Check out the following kaydara forum post:

Or check out any thread with this type of question, it has been covered many times by poor Mr. Besner.

MB 4 PLE is essentially the full "PRO" version with a time-limited license, so it is understandable that it has more functionality than MB 5.0 Standard.

ok maybe i didn't look everywhere, so thanks for those links.

Ok now maybe I'm just thick, but I'm still not clear on how it works. Once you pay the $100 for the perm license you get upgraded to MB 5, right? Now is that Pro or Std edition?

thanks for the help

Another thread for you from the Kaydara site:

If you paid $100 for the PE you must pay $100 for the upgrade to MB5-Std.
If you don't, your PE license expires one-year after you registered it.
Most everything in the PE version is in the STD version - except some Mocap tools and SDK.
