Eon customer relations sour
« on: December 05, 2018, 03:21:42 PM »
It seems from talk on the FB forums that Eons latest release is annoying many of its users. Bu going to a subscription only model they seem to be alienating their base. Not the wisest move I would have thought.
Subscription software certainly has its place, studios can ramp up their seats as required and only have to pay as needed, but for smaller studios and hobbyist it adds an unwanted and otherwise unnecessary expense.
I am glad that Terragen is keeping the option for permanent licences open as well as adding in a subscription model.
We may well see some more Vue users coming over to Terragen if Eon can not find a way of satisfying their lower end market.
Thoughts.

Right. If a hobbyist or even pro uses some software only occasionally, he/she would be put off indeed. I would!
