Pre-sales means that you are getting a pre-release or beta version of the software that might lack a few features.

What is already available?
Library, Areas, WacoSystems and WacoScatter. No additional 3D models content is bundled right now.

What is about to come?
WacoPlants is about to come as a free upgrade including 20 different species. Additional library sets will be for sale later on as well.

A few other facts:

  1. Will performance already match performance at final release?
  2. What will not be included at final release?
  3. What do you get in return?
  4. What license system is involved?
  5. Will a pre-sales license stop working after final release?

 

PRE-SALES

You can buy a pre-sales license for €99. Your support years of choice is not active as long as pre-sales is ongoing. After final release, you choose a support plan. After final purchase, your support plan date is set (not when you bought your pre-sales license). You will get a discount of €99 on your final purchase to turn your pre-sales license into a final license.

Supported 3ds Max builds: 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, 32bit and 64bit
Supported VRay builds (natively): 2.0, 2.0 SP1 and 1.5 SP3(SP3a), SP4(SP4a), SP5 and SP6, 32bit and 64bit

Any render engine is supported while VRay is natively supported (native Mental Ray support will be added after final release).

The MDO store can be found at store.emecstudios.com.

 

1. Will performance already match performance at final release?
Almost. All intensive internal calculations are not yet fully optimised. Multi core support will be added to make use of all your system cores.

 

2. What will not be included at final release?
Native Mental Ray support will not be available at final release but will be shortly afterwards.
WacoSystems and WacoScatter do support regular instancing which means any render engine is supported. Only VRay is natively supported at the moment (natively means a lot of instances are possible).

 

3. What do you get in return?
Your support years of choice is not active as long as pre-sales is ongoing. After final release, you choose a support plan. After final purchase, your support plan date is set (not when you bought your pre-sales license). You will get a discount of €99 on your final purchase to turn your pre-sales license into a final license.

 

4. What license system is involved?
We offer online activations. A license lasts for maximum 2 months (during pre-sales) after which you have to reactivate. You can activate and deactivate any workstation any time. You can issue a day license when you are not able to deactivate a workstation for any reason.

 

5. Will a pre-sales license stop working after final release?
Yes. You need to upgrade to a final license in order to keep working with the final product. We offer a €99 refund if you are not happy with your purchase and do not want to turn your pre-sales license into a final license.
