Cinema 4D Perpetual Licences


Perpetual Licence Benefits

Perpetual licences have several key benefits:

They run indefinitely. You can use these as long as you like, even if you don't upgrade in the future.

Can be logged as an asset in your accounts. You can log these as an asset value in your accounts as perpetual licences can be resold in the future, if you wish. Their value can be determined by the subtracting the cost to upgrade it to the latest version.

Can be sold to someone else. If you ever need to, perpetual licences can be sold to someone else.

Very reasonable maintenance costs. After the initial outlay, MSA costs to keep the software current are very reasonable. For example, the annual cost to maintain Studio is £470 ex VAT a year currently.
