Pushing out final updates before the Mac apps go subscription based…
If the Mac apps go subscription-based, I'm out. I will stop using Logic because I'm not willing to pay yet another subscription for something I've been using for years that I paid once for.

I highly suggest everyone here flood them with feedback protesting the subscription model. I have done it already. They do read it - I've gotten many long-standing bugs fixed by using it.

I don’t see FCP on Mac going subscription based. They have a hard enough time getting pros to use it let alone giving them another reason to not use it.

I don't see why apple can't do whats already been done for 30+ years - a flat update fee when a full ver comes around. $29 ? even $49 for Logic or FCP ?

You *really* dont want subscriptionware. case in point is one major NLE where you can no longer get the installers for older versions, and if you have them they won't authorize if installed. This locks you out of old projects if you haven't opened and saved them up ver 2-3 app vers. of course if you made XML files of your projects you have a shot a project updates, but the digital abyss of project lockout is the veyr biggest problem os subscriptionware. Just see the Capture One lead balloon of trying to get users onto subscriptions when the apps key selling point was it was perpetual lic, upgrade when you need to.
