I think I've finally convince the bosses to buy Cinema 4D, and I was curious what all the MSA is good for? When they say upgrades, do they mean just patches for the current version, or if we have a valid MSA when R15 comes out, will we get to upgrade without paying for it? I understand the whole tech support angle, but I'm curious about the rest of it.
yes, if you have the MSA you get whatever updates and new versions that come out in the year it's good for. You also get the ability to install on a second computer provided both are not used at the same time - so good for a copy at work and one at home.
