It took me a couple of tries, but I got $85.50 (with Platinum Club, and upgrade from C8 Pro). Definitely worth it for me.

$171 for me too, equals to $285 special price - 40% Platinum Club discount. I’m a previous Carrara 8 Pro owner so I should expect another 50% discount for upgrading, right?

I got charged $171 as well.  I’ve Carrara Pro and the upgrades since version 6. I wonder if the people who purchased 8 got the discount and the people who upgraded to 8 didn’t (different database entry)?

In any case, I sent a ticket to sales support.  I’ll let them figure it out.

Because this pricing is valid for the first 2 weeks, I’m hanging out for another week and then I’ll use the Sep PC discount coupon to get it down to $79.50

There is no way it said $85 for previous owner of C8 Pro plus I’m a vendor who gets PC for free it’s still saying $171. No thanks but $85 I would

add it to your cart - then you will see lower price

The 8.5 Native Content for both Standard and Pro has no manual downloads in My Products Library.

Also, 2 questions.

1.) what plugins do I need to download again because they got updated for 8.5?

2.) Can I install it where my 8.0 was so I don’t have to uninstall everything?  If not what do I need to copy over so I won’t have to reinstall all my content into another directory.

Sorry, I add Carrara 8.5 Pro to my cart but I am charged $171.

I have Carrara 8 and the upgrade to Carrara 8 Pro and I am a PC member therefore I do not understand what is happening since the price should be $85…

The newsletter says that Carrara 8 Pro must be in our account for the 50% off to apply. Carrara 8 and Carrara 8 Pro upgrade are in my account but I see that the 50% off reduction does not apply.

No upgrade for me if it remains such.

Edit: I know that the two M5 and V5 are included for free with Carrara but they are not an incentive for me since I have purchased them when they were released. Nice gift though but I would prefer to see $85 in my cart better than $171…

Does the $85 price apply as a PC member no matter what version of Carrara you have?

I have C7, which works - but I also have C8, with a serial # but the intro does not allow me to enter the long serial #, it defaults to the “trial” version.

How do I get the C8 to ask for the serial # - and then allow me to copy the long string into the box?

It’s not much, but I may do that as well.

It’s going to be rougher than I expected, since I pretty much ONLY bought it (back in March) for the Genesis features, but I hope it sets them up for future work.

Plus September 1 is another pay period.

Of course they might choose to start the PA sale then, too, which would really be a rough choice…

P.s. I’m seeing the $85.50 price when I go to the Shopping Cart page, not the drop down, just to be clear.  That’s always the case for programmatic discounts like this.  Although it does sound like some number of folks got ‘missed’.  Some of those prolly own it through other sources, and may not have an entry in their product history for it, but for others I bet the DB check just isn’t right for some reason.

OK, bought it - now where do I find the serial number? It’s not in my account info and the C8.0 S/N is invalid, and not in my order confirmation e-mail…..

thanks
