Default Avid PlugIn License. What do i get now?

...few quetions here regarding space and other plug-in licenses
since i own both licenses (PTHD update plan with Space/Revibe 12.1 and an "older" permanent TL Space including only vers.12.0
and 2 Revibe Licenses, also "older" purchases which ended also at version 12.0


1. what is the difference between Space/Revibe 12.0 and 12.1 ?

2. What Version do i have exactly? (i bought TL Space SH which included 12.0) and
WHERE and WHEN was it stated that it ends with Version 12.0?
(BTW i have the same problem with revibe.....)

3. What Version/License do i get if i buy a NEW PERMANENT Plugin from avid (12.1 or 12.0 ?)
and at which version-number ends support ?
(After ONE year of date of purchase now?)

4. Are Updates (if necessary) from 12.0 to 12.1 possible and how long do they last?


I think this are all important questions for owner of permanent licenses
which also use the HD update plan.

There's no functional difference, the plug-ins were just revved to be able to authorize from 1 license (your Pro Tools HD Plan) and the version numbers help identify which plug-in goes with which license. The 'Plan' licenses provide use of these plug-ins while the plan is active. If you own Space, ReVibe, etc. you can still use those whether your plan is active or not. They don't affect each other.

Just the licensing.

It doesn't 'end' with 12.0. That's just the most current version authorized by your perpetual license.

Buying a perpetual license would include 12.0 as that's the most current version authorized by a perpetual license.

Not necessary as they are functionally equivalent, they just use different licenses.

thx for clearing theese topics jeffro , but it is indeed
a bit confusing when different versions only reflect different licenses
but no functional difference


regards

True. We had to roll the plug-ins so they could all use 1 license, and in the case of Space the publisher also had to change (from TL to Avid, which everything else uses). I get your point about the version #s, though giving them the same version # (to reflect functionality) would likely generate more problems since we wouldn't know which one to install for a specific license. I'll work on a KB article to try and clarify this...

Jeffro, do you remember us having the exact same discussions in another thread when Space 12.1 for the plugin plan was first released.

This is something we've known about for many months now.

The use of versioning purely as a license tool breaks long standing conventions (or common understanding at least) of what versioning is all about. It's no wonder people find it confusing.

In my view it would be better to designate them as different products that are functionally the same, not different versions of the same product. Call it 'Space PTP' or something similar.

I do also wonder how long will it be before someone decides to only update the plan version, EOLing the standalone version, whether intentionally or otherwise.
