That chart is the same that made the rounds earlier. While not 100% correct it does not list any features as included in Lite that won't be in the release version.
The focus should be on Cineware anyway, not Lite.

The chart was hosted on Adobe's official blog (rather than just a link to the chart on another page); it might be good for you guys at Maxon to correct them on that before everyone takes it all as 100% truth.

It is realy no big deal, there are very few and small omissions of what is included in Lite. You just get a bit more than you might expect.

If I have AE and a separate C4D - does that mean end up with 2 licenses of C4D
and can upgrade them independently? Or is Lite a non upgradable product?

Afaik there will be more information on possible upgrade options for registered Lite users once the next AE version has been released and Lite becomes actually available.
Cheers

Maxon would be bonkers to not offer an upgrade path from Lite. Isn't that the whole point of this exercise? To tap into the sizeable After Effects market? The only problem is, of course, the 3D tools in Lite are such a massive upgrade from what AE natively offers, that only the very-interested-in-3D crowd would be interested in upgrading to anything more. I'd say Adobe is definitely getting the better end of the deal here, unless they're paying Maxon far out the ass for this integration (and probably are).

Also, I suppose that's why Maxon has left out all the good cloner stuff - to make the upgrades as enticing as possible.

First reactions by many people and studios that make heavy use of AE indicate that they couldn't care less for Lite and are eager to get Cineware going with Studio or Broadcast. Lite will be interesting to those AE users that haven't sunk their teeth yet in 3D.
I think this will be a winner for Adobe and Maxon.
