Spook, the mere fact you’ve surfaced tells us something is probably imminent. C’mon, can you at least tell us WHEN we get this news?

Did I miss a Carrara announcement somewhere? Has Carrara 8.5 moved out of beta?

At Carrara Café they announced that “Carrara 8.5 to be released end of summer 2013, Carrara 9 in Q1 2014”.  Gives them some margin for error….

HI Smallfry smile

You probably did miss the announcement,... it was made first over at Carrara Cafe.

in brief,. Daz have said that Carrara 8.5 is due to be released this summer,. and Carrara development will continue on C9.

So,. currently C8.5 is still in beta,.  and Carrara 8 is part of the March Madness.

Here’s a couple of questions for those with experience…

I want to buy Carrara 8 Pro now, but I am worried that I’ll have to pay the full amount again when 8.5 finally comes out.

1. Is it usual to have a “Grace Period” or a reduced upgrade fee for upgrades?

My memory is not so good these days, but wasn’t Bryce and DAZ3D more expensive in the before-times?

2. So, is it likely that Carrara will get cheaper, or am I just being hopeful (and dumb)?

Thanks,
Susi xx

1 - they said it would be cheap for the update 8.5 release ( something like $20 ) .
yes they were !
2 - who know - if you want to wait for a year then maybe .

Thanks bigh.
Very helpful.

I need to get stuff done, so I’ll go cough up the cash right now.

(That makes them nothing like Adobe then - You buy something, then they bring out the new version a week later, and you get to pay a huge update fee. No “Grace Period.” Cute. That’s why I avoid Adobe products now.)

  Since we haven’t had a new version of Carrara in some time and I keep having to visit the forums to get the next unlock for build 172, could someone please make it so the beta can use our regular serial numbers?  Just so we don’t have to keep entering a new one every month or so?

                                      thanks,

After struggling to get Carrara 8 installed on Win7x64 (the default install was into the 32bit instead of the 64bit directory) and getting no menus or content…

...I’d like to install 8.5, but it seems like wasted effort if the current serial dies tomorrow (21st March).

Does anyone know what the plan for a new serial release is?
What’s the usual pattern of serial code dissemination?

Thanks for letting me know. I was wondering if it was one of those things where the beta just finishes and you have to wait for the RC or Final versions.
