I mean on the surface it’s “cheaper” since the installments aren’t too crazy…but since it’s subscription the $$ does add up in the end, haha. AE used to cost around $999 (Base), so that’s about 20 months of use until the next version.
I see. It’s the strategy that most software makers use nowadays. But for what I’m doing, it doesn’t really matter. CS4 works just fine. :D
