I don't see any option on the main CL website for that. I also tried downloading the free CDR10 version and it also only shows monthly or annual subscription options for purchase.

Maybe PIX or another moderator can confirm that CDR is now only available as a subscription product. The same may apply to the other Director Suite apps (PhD and ADR). So far, a lifetime license for PDR20 is still available.

that is poor if they only offer as subscription. They are then collecting more money from everyone over time

is the CD 10 a much better product from people's experience so far ?

I would like to hear the feedback

Hello detroit123 & optodata,

I've just double checked my emails to confirm what you've found.

One of my CL contacts wrote (29 September, 2021): "We don't have CDR perpetual version anymore..." which confirms that the only CDR purchase option is a 365 subscription.

Oddly, if you go the the CL Support Center under Downloads, you can download update patches for CDR10. The notes state "This patch is not for ColorDirector 365 subscription version." I can't explain that one.

I can also confirm that I don't have CDR10 (perpetual) installed on any PC here. Only CDR365.

Hello again,

To be frank, I've never done a side-by-side performance comparison of different versions of CDR.

It rather depends on your purposes (i.e. how you use colour correction software). For example, the current CDR365 includes an Effect module that is completely absent from CDR7.



For some users, this may make little difference. To others it would be a game changer. It depends completely on what you might want to do with your videos. Most adjustment features are the same, on the face of it but, for your own interest, it would be worth exploring these Effect features.
