Hi, Rick—great work on all this stuff!
If I install CV Toolbox, and use it to install plugins available to premium subscribers, what happens when my subscription runs out? Do I loose the plugins I have, or just no longer qualify for updates? Any other issues with expiring subscription?

Thanks!

Currently, all the premium plugins will continue to work if your subscription expires, the subscription just controls download / update.

I can’t guarantee that’ll always be the case - we’ve considered building subscription checks into plugins in order to license them. I realize that’s probably a bit less “friendly” but we also want to encourage continued subscriptions (either paid or via MSA). Again, at this point none of our premium plugins actually do this - it’s just something we’ve considered.

Right now, we’re hoping that the pace we’re releasing lots of cool tools and tutorials will keep everyone subscribing. There’s several new plugins/resources and some great tutorial series scheduled for release before the end of the year.
