Substance полностью переходит на подписку!

Оригинальный текст:
Dear Friends,
Starting in June, we will stop releasing major numbered versions and the Substance Live offer will become simpler with a simple name: Substance!
For you, this means an uninterrupted flow of new features and content, just as you’ve always had with Substance Live. For us, this means a drive to push forward and deliver all year long.
You always have access to the latest versions of tools and content, and you can still choose to own your products.

You get Substance for the same monthly price tag.For $19.90 per month, you still get the same products and services:

  • Full access to the latest releases of all Substance software: Substance Painter, Substance Designer and Substance B2M
  • 30 monthly downloads from Substance Source including .sbs files

You keep the ability to own your products.Even though major versions will no longer exist, you can still purchase a permanent license of the current release for $49 once you have completed at least 12 consecutive months of payments.

And whether or not you choose this option, you won’t lose your current accumulated paid months of Substance. The payments that you have already accumulated will remain valid when your account transitions to the new system.
Being able to get the latest releases of all software is an improvement over the previous system, where you had to wait for 8 months before the new version would be available.

Please visit our Substance information page for more details, or send us your questions at

Thank you for your support!

You own your license when you purchase it and you keep it when your updates end.
If you want to get another 12 months of updates, there are 2 solutions:
1. Subscribe to Substance
$9.95/month for 6 months, then $19.90/month
2. Purchase 12 months of updates for $75 per software
You keep the software at the end of the 12 months.

Супер, я вот только хотел купить лицензию, а тут такие новости.
Подскажите кто в курсе, если я сейчас возьму инди лицензию на пайнтер, то, как я понял, когда закончатся обновления (30 сентября) - пейнтер просто не откроется, нужно будет оформлять подписку? Или можно будет пользоваться и дальше моей купленной прогой, только без обновлений?
