Sorry to start ANOTHER thread, but just had an email conversation with Maxon UK and I have some news that some of you may or may not be aware of. I didnt know this…
If you own STUDIO 8 and that has BodyPaint 1, you will have to buy STUDIO R9 Upgrade, PLUS the BP1 to BP2 update. Why? Because BP2 was not part of the R9 update, only CORE, MOCCA and AR.
What does this mean?
Picture this! We all have R9 Studio, two months before R10 is announced Sketch & Toon and DYNAMICS are upgraded to V2. We do not upgrade because we own the Studio bundle and decide to wait for R10 bundle and get all the goodies together. R10 Bundle is released and “officially” has updated CORE, TP and PYRO. We would then have to buy R10 Studio PLUS Sketch & Toon and Dynamics Upgrades to have a true R10 Studio suite.
In short, BUNDLE owners will ONLY get what has been updated at the R.x announcement, nothing more!
Don’t know what to think of this. It makes sense, but really screws with the whole MODULAR thing and I think sparks the arguments over upgrade pricing! :shrug:
