It seems you can upgrade both iclone 8 and cc4 for $100 more if you buy $800 worth of products but the upgrade price is about $700.00 full price and $600 upgrade price...if you wait for the launch...what am I missing... the price upgrade doesn't make sense, (it is located on the  purchasing faq page question #7 upgrade price column.) please explain...and it is not a free upgrade you are paying more for it... thanks

Thanks Peter for clarifying that, I have some items that I want so I will probably be getting the products free anyway.

Hi...

If you spend $799 or more on software or content during the pre-sale period then you will get iClone 8 and Character Creator 4 FREE. If you don't want or need any additional software or content then you can upgrade to both iClone 8 and CC4 upon release for $599. That is a $200 difference, but with the pre-sale offer you are getting $800 of software and content PLUS iClone 8 and CC4 so that is obviously the best deal.

And those who have Iclone 7 and cc3 can continue to keep it or are they going to have to switch to cc4 and Iclone 8?

Will the upgrade come out before the end of 2021? If we buy the additional software and products how long will we have to wait before we can use it in the new software?

Yes you can keep iClone 7 and CC3. You can then install them on a different computer if you wish or even keep them on the same computer until you get used to iClone 8 and CC4.

The release date for iClone 8 and Character Creator 4 is Spring 2022. They won't be out before the end of 2021.

Peter,
UE5 beta is available for trial run before the release. 
Will IC8 & CC4 have beta user program?
If so, how I do I apply?
Thanks,



Nathan

Hi...

If you spend $799 or more on software or content during the pre-sale period then you will get iClone 8 and Character Creator 4 FREE. If you don't want or need any additional software or content then you can upgrade to both iClone 8 and CC4 upon release for $599. That is a $200 difference, but with the pre-sale offer you are getting $800 of software and content PLUS iClone 8 and CC4 so that is obviously the best deal.


So... when I upgrade for the 600.00, does that upgrade ALL the extras and plug-ins I have purchased? Or will I need to upgrade those one by one?  For example.... LEAP, the facial mocap, and so on....

I think I have read that if you spend the 800 that all of that is included... I have purchased just about everything offered..... Not really sure if I can spend 800.00 on content.  Seriously... I have purchased a ton of stuff here... along with CA, CC and IC.... This could get quite pricey if so.

Has anyone here been beta testing?  Actually played with the new features?  The demo looks great.  Wonder how buggy it will be... Also wondering about the Xbox controller... is that the newest version of their controler? It looks so much different than mine.  Will that work with the regular Xbox One controller (or what ever the last model was before this new one).

Excited to try the new features.  Of course... my lack of patience wants it now..... LOL!  BigGrin

I have a question on upgrade price:  Will people who have 3dxchange get additional discounts on the upgrade price, seeing as how it is now integrated into the programs?
Consider:
2021 Year End Treats | Reallusion
ProductPre-sale CampaignRegular PriceUpgrade Price
CC4Spend $399+, Get CC4 for Free$299$249
iC8Spend $699+, Get iC8 for Free$599$499
CC4 + iC8Spend $799+, Get CC4+iC8 for Free$699
(Value: $898)
$599
  • iClone 8 ($599) : With partial 3DXchange Pipeline integration (Value $499) and Curve Editor (Value $149). Check out iClone 8 vs iClone 7
  • Character Creator 4 ($299): With partial 3DXchange Pipeline integration (Value $499). Check out CC4 vs CC3

I have:
iClone 7 (Regular Price: $199.  Upgrade from iClone 6:  $129)
Character Creator 3 (Regular Price:  $199.  Upgrade from CC2:  $129)
3dxchange Pipeline 7 (Regular Price:  $499.  Upgrade from 3xchange Pipeline 6:  $299).
Curve Editor Plugin for iClone 7 (Regular Price:  $149.  Member Price:  $79).

According to the chart above, if I have iClone 7 and CC3, the upgrade price is $599.
However:
iClone 7 and CC3 (Regular Price:  $398.  Upgrade from IC6 and CC2:  $258)
iClone 7, CC3, 3dxchange Pipeline 7, Curve Editor (Regular Price:  $1046.  Upgrade from previous versions:  $636).

So basically, if there is NO extra discount for people who previously bought 3dxchange or curve, then people who bought:
iClone 7 and CC3 ONLY (paying $258-398)
will pay the SAME upgrade price as those customers who bought:
iCone 7, CC3, 3dxchange Pipeline 7 and curve editor ($636-$1046), and thereby paid 2x-3x as much!

Yet, both parties will get the same products with the same functionalities, and the optional (expensive) plugins would count for nothing.  Perhaps as a reward to loyal customers who paid more in the past, thereby supporting Reallusion and the development of these new products, Reallusion might consider additional discounts on the upgrade price.

Something to sincerely think about.

Oh hell... I just bought 3dexchange recently... Didn't even think about that one.  It took me almost a year to accumulate all this.  I may be stuck with these versions for a while. Sad   I also see that SkinGen, IRay, and Headshot require additional... YIKES!.  Maybe I should just write to Reallusion and have them give me a total for my products upgrade...  I am not sure what is and is not included with my software anymore.  My original purchase of CC was a packaged deal.

Maybe I'll wait till version 5 and 9 or 6 and 10.  If upgrading is going to be close to what I just paid, I might as well wait for a while and get a bigger return. 

OR

Hopefully they kept them backward compatible so we can still use these additions.  

ALSO

Does anyone know if CC4 will work with iClone7 if I were to just update that for now... or if CC3 works with iClone8 should I do that one first?  Or do both only work with the new upgrades?  And if they are backward compatible, will it be like it is now?  where they work sometimes they need adjustments or tweaks for the newer version.
