Question on perchasing premier pro an after effects

Jun 13, 2013 12:27 AM

I was wondering, seeing as the fee for the program each month is so high, if I buy the software from a shop front, will I still have to pay the fee each month?

 

cheers lads for any help you can give.

    Andrew,

     

    If you buy a boxed version of CS6 you will own a perpetual license.  It's the CC version that's subscription based.

    As long as you understand that the software you will be buying for a lot of money is a bit old and is being replaced by a subscription only model next week.

     

    You can use CS6 as long as you wish, however, it will never be upgraded. You will have what you have. No new features. Ever.

     

    If that is what you want to do, go for it.

    Also be aware that Adobe isn't offering any more boxed versions (actually in a box, I mean).  So if you find one, scoop it up quick.  Even the CS6 perpetual license will be a download only from now on, so once those boxes are gone...

    Bug fixes and OS compatibility updates are still planned for CS6, but to get any new features, you will need to subscribe to Creative Cloud and get a new version of Premiere Pro.

    Well... I will have to say that CS6 bug fixes are a BIG maybe! (at least one bug that has been known for "about" a year)

     

    There is a long standing CS6 bug with spanned AVCHD clips http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1004369?tstart=0 (May 2012) and http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1216471

     

    Somewhere near the half way point of http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1205851 (now 1,004 messages) I asked about a fix for the above bug

     

    The response, from an Adobe employee, was "maybe" there will be a fix... but no promise

     

    So, Andrew Neilson, if you don't work with long, spanned AVCHD video... I've heard that Premiere Pro CS6 is a good program

    Just keep in mind that $50 per month for virtually every Adobe program is not a bad deal. Maybe for people who already own everything they need, but for some of us needing a few programs, it seems pretty reasonable. I subscribe to the Creative Cloud and I have Premiere Pro, After Effects, the web products, Photoshop and Lightroom, the whole thing.

    You download the apps once, then the updates as you choose to do so over time.

     

    I believe you only need to be on the Internet about once per month to allow Adobe to make sure you have paid for the month.
