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 Prime is £160 ex VAT a year currently.

Licence Type

Cinema 4D perpetual licences come in two types:

  • Single-Seat - These licences can be installed on a single machine only unless you add a MAXON Service Agreement. Adding this increases install rights to two machines so long as only one is used at a time (for example, on a desktop while at work and on a laptop while at home). If you require more than one licence, discounts are available. Simply pick the relevant rate and choose the number of licences required in Quantity, next to the Add to Cart button.
  • Multiple-Seat - These licences can be installed on as many machines in one location as you like. Licences are authorised by a MAXON Licence Server which needs to be purchased separately here.
