    So it's online training that you have 6 months access to? Does that mean you can't download the videos to keep?

    Due to online theft (forget piracy, let's call it what it is) I completely understand why someone would go this route. But it definitely does make things difficult for those of us who go about it honestly, to view these in a timely manner, and to re-familiarize ourselves with it sometime down the line. Six months seems like enough time with a busy schedule to view these, but that doesn't solve the second issue of re-familiarizing. Fortunately it's relatively inexpensive so it makes a six month cap reasonable.

    well , CMIVFX has found a solution ; they encode a pattern in the stream ( unreadable by humans , but easy to detect for a pc ) .

    sorry but six months is very little time. I am a customer of CmiVFX and have purchased several videos from them and I can tell you I´m stilll rewatching some stuff I forgot and that I still had at that server. Specially if you are working and under tight deadlines, 3 months can really fly.
    I understand the business model, but I cannot accept that little time. It sounds more like "I´m afraid my server might go down soon".
    3d animation? Hah! Did you take a look through your window?there´s plenty of it...and pre-rendered!!

    I just wonder how long it will take until a crack-group creates a capture tool that will make this type of protection useless?

    My guess is about 1 week. I hate the idea that people would be copying vids from training places such as these but many of the vids I buy or download for free I don't really get to fully view for a few weeks or months some times. And then I usually really enjoy going back to view them when I start a new project where referencing them might help sometimes a year later. I do think this will slow down the piracy but no where as much as it will slow down the honest people that would buy the vids in the first place. I think most/many people who would really pirate them wouldn't be in the market to really buy them anyway.

    Anyway I wish them the best of luck as it looks like they have some great tutorials on their site.

    I hope Nick does well with this. [Comment removed by the moderators] [Given the problem with] piracy its a wonder anyone would want to continue doing training. Personally Im glad to see Nick perservering.

    so this sums up like this :

    the fair users pay the company for the damages they will get from piracy .
