A cloud subscription is like renting an apartment... stop paying rent, and you may no longer use the apartment
Your Cloud programs will stop working when you stop paying for the subscription
You may use your serial number programs, after you Read Cloud takes over https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2089127 for some ideas (see reply #1)
So are u saying that my updated after effects will expire? Cuz my CC subscription has already expired but my updated after effects that I got when I ordered CC looks like it still works. I just opened it today moreover; my Adobe CC acount under my products says expired. So I want to know will my updated AE still work. I don't care right now about all the extra stuff that comes with CC.
Here's a simpler way of putting it.....CC updated my AE cs5 Will I get to keep THAT UPDATED version of ae if I no longer have CC
The answer is yes.
