After getting a glimpse in the new drop shadows with gaussian blur and the new font list, here is another exclusive benefit for Premium Members and Subscribers that we will introduce with the X7.4 update. But first a few comments. While the features we introduce in updates normally become available for everyone with the next major update, the access to the CorelDRAW Edition of Aftershot, Corel's professional RAW workflow solution, will remain exclusive for Premium Members and Subscribers, even after the next major new version. Yes, starting with Update 4, Premium Members and Subscribers will be able to download a special version of AfterShot to greatly enhance their RAW photo-editing. The first version we will release will be based on AfterShot 2.0 with a limited number of cameras. We plan to get in sync with the stand-alone product from a Camera RAW compatibility in coming months, but wanted to get the initial version in your hands as soon as possible. Here is a short video showing how both products work together:
That's it for the sneak peek videos related to Update 4. X7.4 will be available to download in March 2015, and the easiest way to get your update installed is to click on the link that will pop-up within CorelDRAW or Corel PHOTO-PAINT when the update is available.
David, at this stage, the version of AfterShot that will be available for Premium Members and Subscribers of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite will be a different version than AfterShot Pro 2 available as a standalone. Also note that the version part of the Premium Membership of CorelDRAW is based on AfterShot 2, not AfterShot Pro 2. We call it the AfterShot CorelDRAW Edition.
Mike, users of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7 who don't have an active Premium Membership or Subscription can purchase AfterShot 2 or AfterShot Pro 2 as a separate product, and our plans it to have the stand-alone version compatible with CDGS in the future. This won't happen with Update 4 though.
"Yes, starting with Update 4, Premium Members and Subscribers will be able to download"
I am sure what you meant to say was "Aftershot Pro 2" will be made available as a plugin and a standalone version for ALL corel users and we will not discriminate non-subscription members. Pre-existing ASP 2 users will also be able to download the plugin when "Update 4" becomes available to Subscription Members.
Great idea. I assume those of us that already own Aftershot Pro 2 simply don't download it correct?
Nice step forward! Hope the user Interface of all the corel 'pro' applications will be aligned untill X8!
