I’m still confused… on the Maxon web site I see:
BUY THIS PRODUCT (Cinema R8)
CINEMA 4D R8 PC* $595*
CINEMA 4D R8 Mac* $595*
So how can the purchase price and the upgrade price be exactly the same? What am I missing? Must be missing something. In my universe, upgrade pricing (by definition, for existing customers) is 25% to 50% of the price for a new user’s purchase. Otherwise, we might as well buy new licenses with each new release. So I must be missing something.
Going by that formula however, the upgrade from R8 to R9 should be $150. to $300., maybe $349. at the very most. And people who shelled out for 8.5 should get $75. off (which is not me, BTW).
Well, my own situation is upgrading from XL Bundle R8 to XL Bundle R9. Haven’t yet heard what that will be. I’m afraid to hear what it will be.
