This is Andrew Darius' details about whether or not Explaindio 1.0 buyers will need to buy 2.0 or get it free.
Question: "Will the current Explaindio continue to be supported so those of us who paid for it will be able to get the value we already paid for?"
Andrew's answer: "With purchase comes 1 year of free updates (not upgrades) which mean you would normally get updates to 1.0 standard (current version) except because we care about our creators we prepared special free upgrade to 2.0 Standard as the gesture of the good will."
Andrew (continuing): "Current Explaindio 1.0 Standard users will get grandfathered to Standard 2.0.
We will be having a new product Explaindio "Pro" version with advanced functionality.
All grandfathered Standard 2.0 users will be able to upgrade to Pro (optional) for half off or a 50% discount over retail during 2.0 launch early bird period.
Since Explaindio switches to yearly subscription after we re-open, current Explaindio 1.0 Standard users can save 50% every year on Pro upgrade during 3 early bird hours before actually launch. After that 3 early bird hours the discount for upgrade to Pro 2.0 will be about 30% discount until the end of launch period.
Standard 2.0 will be yearly for NEW customers after it launches.
Grandfathered users will pay nothing to enjoy the Standard version.
For those who have explaindio before we close will also be FREE upgrades to Standard 2.0 for promised 1 year period from purchase date so no yearly for free upgrades period. (you can use forever without yearly too just free upgrades ends in year from purchase as was on sales letter)
We will not be disclosing all features (just some) info about version Pro before 2.0 launch. I can just say that 1 of new features in Pro is REVOLUTIONARY and not done by any other video creator - when you see it you will want really to have it."
Question: "if a current grandfathered 2.0 member gets the Pro version (during the early bird/launch), will the yearly subscription apply or is it the one-time payment for life like we currently have with Explaindio 1.0?"
Andrew's answer: "2.0 Pro is yearly membership. 50% during 3 hours early bird will apply to every year so every year you stay member you save more. Standard 2.0 has 47 bugs fixed and just a few new features like new login system, bold writing of text on sketch, custom transition. Please note that we only promised free updates to version 1.x standard (not upgrades), so free upgrade to 2.0 Standard is gesture of good will to show how much we care about our creators. But Standard does not have main new features like 'sketch to animation', fully animated moving motion objects, 'sketch to video', and green screen support, and ton of smaller. So you really would want to get that upgrade to Pro."
That's it, guys. Just thought you'd like to know.
