Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Hello JMathewsAdobe,

I'm one of those old Mixamo Fuse users that purchased through Steam.

Mixamo blog post say

"Adobe Fuse CC (Preview) is not a free trial, it is a free version of the application"

But download page at Adobe said "Start your Free Trial" and Creative Cloud Desktop app says "Try"

A little confused here. Which one is it? Is this a trial or not?

Can I import my own content into Fuse CC(preview) export into Mixamo, download my auto rigged character and use it in a commercial video game project while this "preview" thing is going on?

Thanks for your time.

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

yes...

I am also another individual that payed for this through Steam and I will certainly not want to pay for it again.


We should be able to provide Adobe's support with our Steam purchase details to receive credit as purchased. I realize this one is beefier with the Photoshop integration and the characters with scan data texturing but honestly that just doesn't seem enough to justify buying this twice.


Also this version is suffering from a few issues with symmetry, hesitations between functions, and it doesn't scale properly with multiple-monitors, on Windows 10.

Ultimately I love it and Thanks!

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

This is the statement causing concern by-the-way

For a limited time, Fuse is available as a free preview to Creative Cloud members.

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Hi Güray!  Sorry for any confusion here.  Fuse is not a free trial in the same sense as the other creative cloud trials (which are limited to 30 days).  It is a free version of the application.  It's still considered 'trying' the product rather than 'buying', but preview is Adobe-ese for "Beta", basically.  We currently don't have a planned end date to the preview period, so enjoy the free-ness and we'll make sure to announce when things change!


@Jovon - Thanks for the feedback!  At this time, the limited time is undefined, so we don't have the details on what we might do after that.  When we do, we'll be sure to make announcements.

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Will adobe fuse be available to us for the long term as long as we're creative cloud subscribers?  Will adobe start charging more or a separate fee for this program in the future?  This needs to be elaborated on please.

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Hi Paul!  Great question.    At the moment Fuse is available for free for anyone, even if you don't have a Creative Cloud subscription since it's a free preview.  The long term pricing decisions haven't been made yet, but we'll be sure to keep you all up to date as best we can.  Right now, please enjoy the free preview and we'd love any feedback you have on the application!

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Is this most likely whats going to happen?!  I know when edge animate came out it was a preview until a final version came out.  I can't see adobe intergrading this new 3d character program with photoshop and other cc applications and then pulling it in the future and charging us extra for it.  Until adobe makes this clear, I can't see anyone or my self really getting into making it a full line of production when this case isnt made clear.  I'm worried.  I know there is a lot of confusion because old accounts that were with this company are now being integrated and their accounts are now being merged to cc accounts now and maybe thats why its a preview.  So they get a preview now, but if they don't have a cc account anytime soon, they will have to or it will go away.  But for us cc people who already have the account, won't be affected.  Is this safe to assume?  Please clear this up...

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

I can't speak to the final decisions as they haven't been made yet.  I think what's most likely is that Fuse (Preview) will remain free and yours to use forever.  It's a free version of the app, you download it, you have it, so we're not going to take that away.  If we come out with a new -non- preview version, it would be rolled into the Creative Cloud offerings so you would get the upgraded version through CC, but this version wouldn't be taken away from you.  Please take this with a healthy dose of "not official statement", though.  Adobe could decide to turn around and charge you a million dollars for the next version.  Unlikely, but just saying.

The Preview status doesn't really have to do with the account upgrading, it's more just that this is a very new type of product and we really want to know what everyone things about it so we can make it better!

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Yeah, lol.. (charge a million dollars) like they did with DPS 2015, lols...  I just seem to gather from reading other forum posts and private messaging people, the message was totally 100% clear as to what the situation is for people who bought a license with the previous company.  That being said, it makes sense that adobe is making this a preview version to let this accounts bleed out from what they originally had, merge the accounts in the process and when the time is up for the "preview" version, they'll be forced to roll into a creative cloud package for the whole animal or do a single app for this particular program.  Does this make sense to you?  All i know is that there are lots of very upset people not being clear with whats going on here, not so much being update at the quality of work thats been put into the program and its features.

Listen I've been using adobe for almost 20 years and i'm 30.  Been using adobe since way before they bought out macromedia and took ownership of the programs we know today (fireworks, flash, dreamweaver ext.)  Adobe is an amazing company, but sometimes they swallow before they chew all the way and their clients are the ones that loose brain activity and die.  Please talk with the higher ups and have them make this clear for all of us.  I know I don't have anything to worry about per say, but people who came from the previous company are upset and taken back.

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Yeah, I came from Mixamo (the company that originally made Fuse), so we're definitely aware that it's been a rough transition.  At this time there's just no information to share.  When those decisions are made we'll make it available to everyone!

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Wonderful and honest answer.

Hey, what more can we ask for "shrug"

Paul is right, but to be honest Paul they are feeding everyone pretty dang good right now.

I only had Fuse because that Mixamo was completely out of my budget.

They've given us FREE REIGN at Mixamo's Store and Tools and that's at minimum $2,000 in value...

I'm just trying to look at the positive perspective I guess

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

And I will bring your concerns to the table.    I hope that it doesn't come across that I'm brushing you off.  I feel very strongly that you deserve a solid answer, it's just that we don't have one to give you.  Mixamo (the company) was acquired and Mixamo (the service) is in transition as we move into the Adobe ecosystem.  Until those decisions are much more finalized, it's very difficult to put prices on things.

I think at this moment we're doing our best to give a ton of cool stuff for free so everyone can have fun and focus on creating.  I think the content that's been given free is worth $50-$100, but that's relative to everyone's point of view, so I'll be sure to keep updating you as best I can!

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Thank you JMathews!

Your always so awesome with your response time.

Thank the team for making it so much more simpler to get models exported out as an obj and back into the editor.

I prefer making my changes in Zbrush and it was nice to make adjustments and get the improved model back in Fuse with a few simple clicks!

Cheers!

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Well thanks!  I'll be sure to pass that on to the team, I know they will appreciate it.  As someone making custom content you might also like to know there's an easier way to update your custom content rather than having to entirely re-import it.  Just right-click on any custom content in your library and choose "Edit Item..." to open the new Edit panel.  You can adjust name, category, texture maps, region names and update all of your maps.  Now you'd only need to re-import if you have an entirely new mesh.

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Hi after I am very pleased with the preview and would like to use this commercially, do I need a subscription to Adobe cloud or pay certain royalties or licensing fees?? I noticed in the forums that it is currently free due to integrating difficulties but since it sounds too good to be true I would like to ask to be sure.

Best Regards,

Victor K.

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

There's no additional subscriptions or anything needed.  Mixamo is free because we're working on other things and we weren't ready to integrate Mixamo more fully, so we sort of put it on hold as a free preview while we focus on another application.  The current plan is to remain free while we work on this other app, so no updates happening for 2017.

Mixamo is royalty free for commercial and non-commercial use.

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Hello and sorry for asking again.
I contacted adobe's chat support and they told me I need to upgrade my subscription to Adobe creative cloud so I can use Adobe Fuse CC (Beta).
Is that the case?
Can I use fuse and mixamo (Character and animations), with a free adobe id (and creative cloud), commercially?

Thanks!

Re: Licensing, Royalties, Ownership, EULA and TOS Q&A

Hi Jim, yes, apologies for any misinformation.

Fuse and Mixamo are both currently in a free Preview for anyone with an Adobe ID and do not require a paid subscription to Creative Cloud.  You can use them in commercial projects royalty free at this time.
