3DAGE, will there be another serial number for Beta…meaning is it still under development? Or will the $285.00 version now on sale be “it” after the 18th? 
Cheers, SIleneUK

Andy doesn’t work for DAZ. He’s an extremely helpful and knowledgeable member of this community, but even he would tell you he doesn’t know.

The serial number is updated, usually a day or so before the old one expires.

DAZ 3D has already stated that the full release version of 8.5 will be released in late Summer, with Carrara 9 to follow next year sometime.

HI Silene smile

There’s usually a promotion when any new software versions are released,. and sometimes there are discounts of additional products for that software.

As for the price,. nobody knows right now,. but, we were told (some time ago) that it would be a “small fee” for the upgrade from 8 to 8.5
which is pretty vague,. ..but,. it should be less than the current sales price smile

right now I’m saving pennies in a jar,,..  I almost have a pound.  smile

Hope it helps

Glad we escape VAT because the exchange rate sucks going £ to $ right now!

I’m still hot to find info on C9. If DAZ is expecting to release it only a few months{possibly a year} after C8.5, they have to already know what is going in it. So just what is going in to C9 to make it a full point release?

It better be something big because this ride has gotten too slow, too erratic, and too costly for me.

I’ve bought Carrara 8.5 beta but didn’t use it nearly one year. Now the tmp-serial is expired, where do it get a new one? And where do it get the final version? Must I buy it?

NO new beta serial number because the actual version is released, and yes it is for sale in the store.

I’ve already payed $149.96 for the beta, do I have to pay the “normal” price additionaly?

The beta was free to those that owned Carrara 8 Pro for testing and evaluation. Carrara 8.5 is, and was always going to be a paid upgrade. DAZ made this known fairly early. The mystery at the time was the final release date and the cost of the upgrade. My guess is that you paid for Carrara 8 Pro and were given access to the 8.5 beta.

My advice would be to first check your order history in your account, and if it is still unclear, contact customer support to see what they have a record of.
