I'm really frustrated by this as well. The promotional email last year stated:
"To celebrate this awesome news, if you purchase CrazyTalk Animator 3 PRO or Pipeline bundle, then you will get a FREE upgrade to Cartoon Animator 4, with 2 bonuses! "
"Cartoon Animator 4 is going to bring you the evolution in 2D animation with precise motion editing, 360 degree head turn, webcam facial mocap and more."
No mention that the Mocap would be an additional cost.
So I paid the $199 price for CTA3 Pipeline and waited for v4 to release. Now I find that I have to pay another $99 to get the Mocap feature, making the total price paid $298. I may not have made the purchase had I known the full price.
And had I *not* made the purchase, I could today have bought the CA4 + Mocap bundle for $269, saving myself $30.
(I am aware that I also got CTA3 for my $199 BUT I made the purchase as a pre-order of CA4, did not use CTA3 while waiting for v4 to come out, and can't imagine I'll have a need to use CTA3 in future. First and last time I will make this mistake of pre-ordering!)
