Read a few hints to Carrara 9… Could it be?  I would love that, but according to manly stanly in his opinion DAZ will not release a Full bore version of Carrara 8.5 but will go straight to 9 and price it as a new PRODUCT!

If that in fact happens you mean if I have always bout the upgrades since I was in Diapers and now run 8.1 now, there will be NO UPGRADE price for people like me and will have to fork over $500-600 US?

How many QUID is that Wendy?

I’d say that rumour has it that rumours are only rumours…

One reason I ask it than I am working on a BUDGET for this massive investment for a NEW MACPRO with all updated Application SUITE such as the MASTER SUITE from ADOBE! OUCHE. Particle Illusion, ect ect ect.

I have not budgeted in another 500-600 for a full bore Carrara 8.5 or 9

This could cut deeply into my Crack Budget!

Do you really think that one man’s opinion is anything more than that man’s opinion ?  Personal opinions frequently have no connection to any known facts.

True. But I’m sure you’re also aware that facts don’t really matter in these forums.

BTW, I noticed that your “Old post count” in your sig line was over 11,000 !!! Congratulations !!!

Even if DAZ were to go straight to C9, the upgrade price would not be anywhere near that price for a C8->C9 upgrade.

Rich….......... If you’re getting your information from this thread: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/5182/ 90% of that discussion was a joke. The only part that’s *true is DAZ buying Blender to implement it’s intuitive UI across it’s product line. Eventually working it’s way into Carrara around version 9.


Now, since you’re on a budget, I have a toll bridge I’d like to sell you in New York. It’s pretty cheap because it’s old and it can only take you to and from Brooklyn. LOL


*Not true.

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.

Complete speculation. Just don’t be surprised.”
ManleyStanley

Note: I am 11 for 14 on predictions of what DAZ will do. So I am not wrong as often as people would like.

My predictions for Carrara are if there is a C8.5 it will be a full price upgrade, I believe the nominal fee went out the window months ago. DAZ is aware no one will pay a full upgrade price for a .5 upgrade so will skip 8.5 and go to 9 to charge a full upgrade fee. More over do to cost over runs, and the present economy I expect the upgrade cost to be half again as much as last time, or put the upgrade cost of C9pro close to if not in excess of $300.

Sure it’s all speculation, but would any one bet that I am far from wrong?

I think you are off on the price, ManStan. It won’t be cheap, but it won’t be $300. And if you’re a PC member, it will be less as that’s how they roll. I’m guessing $69.
