Re: If you have a perpetual License

Might be worth buying a reinstatement plan and putting the code into a virtual drawer. Break glass when you really need to update for OS or feature reasons. These reinstatements come and go, there's...

Re: Field Recorder - Expand Selection Only

I just lasso all the clips I need to expand, right click and match the selection (on a Field Recorder track of course).

Re: Existing Perpetual License Owners

It still seems really odd to me that Avid encourages those with lapsed permanent licenses to get them up to date, but refuses to sell any new ones.

Well, reinstatements got reinstated eventually....

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

Interesting - $249 is halfway between subs and perpetual.

Re: New PT Studio License - Sub or Perpetual

If you do the maths, it's actually pretty close. A reinstatement is only $50 more than an annual sub. And for every year you skip as a perpetual license holder, you still get a fully working pro...

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

…but as per the lengthy discussion in this thread, the Carbon bundle is only quasi-perpetual. You don’t have reinstatement fees if you lapse, but you have to pay subscription prices, not perpetual...

Re: Really ?

IIRC wasn’t this the move from 32 to 64 bit? It may also have coincided with the shift to non-US workers too. I remember that era was pretty much featureless for a couple of years - I hope that quote...

Re: Really ?

General mildly depressed comment - the new era of Chris being active on the forums was awfully short-lived. Zero follow up from any of the questions he asked, and got polite but firms answers to.

Re: Pro Tools 2022.4 Release - specific "Studio" question

What goes for you goes for many. But your post made me wonder if a video slave solution might work for some people. I haven't tried it, don't know how fiddly it is to have multiple video clips, but...

Not quite as bad here on Win 10 2022.4 - a highlighted section of the timeline flashes, but nothing else.

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

Quite something to come to this. I suppose you have the option of stumping up $99 for one month if you find down the road you're lacking something critical.

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

I guess many of us missed it earlier this year because we're not in the market for Carbon. The renewed interest now is that it provides the only semi-perpetual license opportunity for new customers....

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

Yes, another good point.

Of all Avid hardware, the only one that works with Studio is Carbon. It’s taken me this long to realise that this isn’t out of the goodness of their hearts, they migrated...

OK, thanks abc. Holy cow.

So. That was then, still trying to wrap my head around the now.

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

Good morning from the UK! I appreciate your efforts to clarify it all. It feels every time the proposition changes - there's TWO licenses now? I'm going to try to understand it one more time.

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

Okay… so there’s a unique subscription plan for Ultimate users that isn’t Flex that no-one else has access to now?

My head hurts. I’ll check in again tomorrow.

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

This could - COULD - be the single most confusing policy they’ve ever come up with.

In short - $399 to renew initially. Once lapsed, it’s $999 - $250 more than the reinstatement penalty. Then at...

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

That’s not what abc says above. Not how it is being advertised now, anyway:



That makes it sound like $399 initially, then if you lapse and want to get back on it is $999. It’s opaque as to...

Re: The end of perpetual licenses

Hold on.

1 - it’s ALWAYS been like this?!

2 - So… I’ve re-read the last paragraph 3 times. Do I have this right? If you let the subs lapse, then you stay on the last version (so far so good)....
