I have recieved a quote to upgrade to version 2 and this is what i was quoted. What a joke! :crazy:
No Pertetual Licience available.
I bought thea back it 2011.


Inspire Render = $299/mth or $2399/yr

Inspire Studio = $729/mth or $5789/yr (comes with Inspire Render built in)
How many licenses?
$299/month for 1 license is obviously out of market.

The fact you purchased Thea in 2011 is not rilevant in my opinion.

To me, it looks like they want ti get rid of all loyal customer base. Well, not a big problem starting from free renders to Thea's straight competitors with reasonable prices. And on the subject of Altair CAD abilities - I'd prefer Moi3d as more artist friendly and intuitive tool. If they somehow decided to lay the Thea low they did the great job. Anyway I'll use 1.5 until the OS and hardware support it.
