O boy it was a long time since I looked vue software and itīs website.

Is this site really correct? so much I do not recognize, new logo for e-on ...and they really hide the name of vue withint a creator menu, then a small tiny icon ..for more info about vue here.
Donīt know what to say..except bring me back the old pages.

anti-friendly browsing seems to be the new gimmick.

They had an older site not long ago that so nicely described the features so well, all of that is gone, and it is made in a fashion of mobile and wordpress styled themes that follows the trend of marketing it that way...itīs horrible and lacks the previous feature description.

There goes any chance of me ever using their stuff ever again. :tsktsk:

Yes that's unfortunately the case. They are proud of the new logo and even produced a video about it's creation, without mentioning the product itself.

When they introduced the new products they boldly stated that they are now offering subscriptions, a couple of days and many angry user comments later they changed 'subscription' to 'solution'.

VUE (new name) is basically the same as Vue 2016.6 with the addition of new UI icons, openVDB volumes and PBR texturing (which doesn't work well).

The Professional version includes everything that xStream did, the Creator line is more or less the same but without any export, integration or compositing functions (which makes it useless if you want to use it together with other apps). Plant Factory is included but I personally don't find it a good application.

Rental only for all versions. I have an Enterprise license now (including 25 render nodes) due to my running xStream maintenance but I will not spend any more money on e-on / Bentley.

The Cornucopia store will be available at a later time but I fear that most user interest will be gone by then (I don't think many professional users would use that store and hobbyists don't like subscription).

yes..I heard about rental only some time ago, that is why I hardly visit the page anymore, rental is of no interest to me.
Hope some things will be improved with Terragen and that it doesnīt go rental, but the development on Terragen goes to slow..and I am not fond of waiting too long wishing for the ideal software.
