There won't be anymore updates to AlamDV2, and we will stop selling it once AlamDV3 arrives. But there isnt an expirey date built into AlamDV2, so you can continue to use it as long as you wish.

Yes, AlamDV3 will have a slight price increase to reflect the huge improvement over ADV2.

AlamDV2 were very cheap so I don't care if they raise the price, but since I get it for free I probably shouldn't say anything about the price. biggrin

Actually the current icon is already the AlamDV3 one, so it will probably stay as it is.

Don't think you need plugins anymore, or mabye if you need the 3d renders. I think they figure something.

AlamDV3 wont use plugins, all the major effects will be dynamically created within the program. You will also be able to import stock footage which will give you the ability to use pre-rendered effects. We will be developing a stock footage library people can use in the future.

Plugins are technically Stock Footage, and therefore you will probably be able to use them, or the ones that show up in the Stock Library. I dunno about you but I bet Sollthar will have a few contributions surprised

How much is AlamDV 3 going to increase in price? $90.00 is alot already (for me anyway) and I can't imagine to have to pay more. I'd buy 2 now, but unfortunately I've spent all of my Christmas money already...

I will give you a medal if you find anything that powerful for cheaper.

I don't understand. When I signed up for AlamDV2 it sent me an e-mail and it said I would get a FREE upgrade to AlamDV3 when it comes out.

In that case, it should be free for upgrade like they said.
