Yes, I know this is an old version of Carrara. I bought the first edition of Figures, Characters, Avatars for the purpose of legally buying a copy of this older software for its ability to create 3d text that I could then import and texture in studio 4 pro.
Like the old forums suggested, I submitted a help ticket with my receipt and a request for the serial number, but they deemed the ticket closed without putting the serial number in my account or contacting me in any way.
Does anyone here in the Carrara forums know why this happened or how I can go about legally obtaining a serial number? I know there is a trial version of Carrara 8, but that only lasts a short time and wouldn’t suit my purposes. I’ve looked into other software that would do this, and Carrara seems to have the best options, but I’m not going to spend hundreds of dollars to get the latest version just for 3d text when an older one will do. (And who knows, I may like it so much I would switch from studio down the road.
