Why is the new upgrade "Camtasia 2018" fee required?
This spring our company bought the new version "9" after we used "Camtasia Studio 8" for several years.
Now a new version is available yet again - "Camtasia 2018".
It's not a good customer service that we should pay for this upgrade again!
Camtasia 2018 has several new features which may or may not be of interest to you. If they are, you can pay for the upgrade. If they're not, you still have the software that you paid for.
It is wrong. Even Adobe bought back his customers licenses by converting them to the subscription when they went cloud-based.
So what now ? pay to upgrade now and get ready to pay to upgrade next year again ?
with subscriptions, you pay every month
with major upgrades to a new "version", you pay on a much longer cycle [1 to 3 years for most software products]
paid upgrades can be good because you can opt-out and keep on playing
with subscriptions, you have to keep on paying; no pay usually = no more play
