Thread: New TurbulenceFD Group Buy-in! (Round 3! IGNITE!)

  1. #1

    New TurbulenceFD Group Buy-in! (Round 3! IGNITE!)

    Ok kitties! It's on.
    Time for the 3rd TurbulenceFD Group buy-in event!

    Things are a bit different this time but the premise is the same. A big massive discount on TurbulenceFD from www.jawset.com (This discounted opportunity is now open and for the first time to C4D users as well. Please read carefully).

    1. You must provide your LW Product Lock ID in advance this time. It will help to speed things up.
    2. the email so I can keep easier track has changed for this initiative and you must email me the details below.

    A: Your First and Last Name

    B: Your LW Product Lock ID (NO CRACKS PLEASE!) This is usually a 3-5 digit number and is not your serial number, it's the LW product lock ID that I need.

    C: The email address you wish to receive your registration information at.

    3. I'm letting this round run for 7 days for the "I'm in!" round.

    4. Once that closes on the 14th of June, you will have 24 hours to provide payment.

    5. The final price is determined by how many people participate.

    6. I will be providing an additional incentive in the form of a HEAVY discount on my TFD training which will be based on the same formula that I used last year. The number of participants in that drive all received coupons for 47% off my training and bundles. Instead of the coupons lasting a year though, they will last for 3 months instead this time. The reason for this change is a backend thing on Liberty3d.com and we are needing to keep the database that drives it as clean as possible.

    7. One group buy in participant in this round will be selected randomly and receive ALL of my TFD related training from Liberty3d.com for free. That means the TurbulenceFD Projects and Concepts, any of my Practical Production Techniques videos where I deal with TFD, any of my Fusion for LightWave Artists titles that deal with TFD and of course the Nuclear Weapons Pack and Conventional Weapons pack.

    8. And this is especially interesting: For the first time, Jascha has agreed to permit me to combine the group buy in discount with licenses of LightWave3D and Cinema4D. What this means is very simple. LW and C4D users who participate will contribute to the group buy in volume discount as a whole. Currently, this is not possible on Jawset.com. This is made possible through a special agreement I have made with Jascha.
    (This does not mean you get a license for both C4D and LW)

    This is great news for LightWave artists and C4D artists as it means the absolute lowest price possible will be obtained by combining users of both platforms together to do a group buy of this awesome plug-in.
    8. If you are a C4D user, when you email me, you will need to include the information as requested above in A, B, C but instead of the LW Product Lock ID, I will need the first 11 digits of your C4D Serial number. You must provide this when you say "I'm in." If you don't, I will email you back and ask. It's better though if you do it up front as the last group buy-in was over 60 people and it's a lot of work to chase people down.

    9. If you don't have the financial resources to participate, discount or not - please don't say "I'm in" and then drop out later. This delays the purchase of the group buy in and is unfair to others.

    10: Understanding all of this, email: [email protected] and do the thing!

    Happy times everyone! And remember to share this post!

    Are you going to keep us up to date as to how many are signed up so far so we have an idea of the price?

    Thanks,

    Is TFD still being updated? I don't keep up with this plugin so I'm curious as to what is new with it.

    Hi Oldcode.
    That's not how this thing works. We need people to commit, not just in last second. The last group buy in was over 60 people. The previous one was over 20. We have to have a minumum number to bring the price down significantly and at a certain point the price hits a "floor" where it won't go down much more than that floor level.

    Yes it is. I asked Jascha about his progress on 2.0 and it's very, very interesting but I can't say much. However I know its going to rock.

    Are there any estimates about the price reduction, for example: when 10 people sign in, it will be 5 percent, with 20 it will be 10 percent, and so on?

    This is all I was asking. I'm a hobbyist, not a pro, so I can't spend 500 USDs on a single plugin.

    It was a stretch for me to shell out 200 to get Syflex and the other plugins from 3rdPowers.

    If we could get the price down to 250 US, I'd seriously consider it, but I won't commit to anything blindly.

    Same boat - I have TFD for 2015, but do I need to buy into this, or is this for new licences only and I'll receive an upgrade path anyway?
