Motion Builder for $13.50


#1

I just got Motion Builder PE 4.02 for $13.50. The June issue of Digit Magazine comes with a year long Motion Builder license. Cool, eh?

I just installed it and am awaiting my auth code. Blah I’ll probably have to wait until Monday for that. Oh well. Still, that’s considerably cheaper than the $100 I was about to plunk down for it.

If anybody’s curious about it, go get the June issue of Digit magazine. I found mine at Barnes and Noble for $13.50. :slight_smile:

Oh, one little issue, they messed up the CD a little bit. The install file that comes with the disc doesn’t have the right filename. The file is there, just named wrong. I had to copy the whole disc to my laptop and rename the file. That kinda sucked, but at least I was able to get the install running. Just wanted to let you all know in case somebody buys it.

Fun stuff!

Hehe,
Actually, you’ll end up paying more that way:
13.50 for the one year opp + $200 (or $250) for the extension.

I was gonna go that route but there was this info out there somewhere…

But, MB ROCKS!!!


#3

No no no, the $200 is not an extension, it’s to permanently keep it.


#4

Right, that’s what I meant.


#5

How does that come out to more than spending $100 to get the program and then another $200 to extend it permenantly? confused

Hi All,

I found more details at Digit’s Website:

Cheers.

Correct you are, sir.

Seems it won’t be as big a diff as I understood: you’ll just pay 13.50 more than those who went the 100+100 deal.

Still, the program is a great addition to any lw artist’s arsenal. You will love it.

Not trying to burst a bubble… :wink:

Take care and share what you learn once you get it.

Actually, with the paid upgrade to the permanent license, you’ll be getting Motionbuilder 5.0, and you’ll be getting a printed manual regardless of whether you got your copy of the PE through Digit, Kaydara, or 3Dbuzz. So it’s really a win-win situation any way you look at it. :beer:

mmmmmhhh…the printed manual interests me! also i am happy of the current MB version, and i’m just courious what they made better in 5.0

Kaydara:thumbsup:


#13

Ah cool, i didn’t know they were going to give us 5.0

I hope they email all their users to remind them once the deal is available, i’d hate to forget and miss out.
