the price in fact was reduced during beta and until now only grew to it’s normal price.
A lot of users who joined early still pay 6€/month for 2x faster render, reduced noise, new denoiser, etc.
I also have students at 3€/month.
To be fair, you should also say that the year option is now more affordable.
And every time a user kindly asked in PM to benefit from a reduced price after the limit, I gave him a coupon to still benefit from the offer. So if you got surprised, just PM me.
For the amount of features and the stability it reached, it’s more than fair I think.
