Since then, we have come to recognise that the security measures excessively hindered genuine customers. Which is why over the past months, Astute Graphics has invested in a completely new licensing system tailored towards our customer requirements.
Everybody loves our products. The same couldn’t have been said for our old licensing system and licensing policy. Today, every new and existing customer of Phantasm CS v2 and VectorScribe benefit!
New versions of VectorScribe and Phantasm CS
To cater for all the benefits detailed below, all Astute Graphics products have now received a major update.
VectorScribe is now at version 1.5 — click here to download…
Phantasm CS is now at version 2.5 — click here to download…
Each upgrade is freely available as a new 14 day full trial, and every Phantasm CS v2 and VectorScribe customer has free, automatic access to these updates. See the end of this blog article for more information.
Improved licensing system
The new Astute Graphics licensing system has been vastly simplified for all users. For example, the activation and de-activation process can be achieved in a few clicks, with the system now informing you fully at each step of the way.
It also cuts down on the hassle if you lose a hard drive or need to work on more than 2 computers. And it is designed to be more robust when performing major system updates on your computer.
This all means that it leaves you to less time frustrated and more time creative!
To find out more, our licensing page has been updated detailing the activation process and other key points.
Improved product installers
Our plug-in installers have been back to school. The new installers are clearer, unified into single releases for Mac or Windows, and Mac users no longer need to reboot!
More flexible license policy
Astute Graphics has updated its licensing policy to allow the number of licenses purchased to equate to the number of concurrent users. You can now install on all necessary computers!
This policy automatically transfers to all existing VectorScribe and Phantasm CS v2 customers.
To find out more, please refer to the licensing page.
