Reality capture pay per input licensing

So this is a new one. Reality capture has a pay per input licensing model now.
The software is free you just pay for what you use per input

I stand correct it’s not per what your save but how many images etc you use to process the model

“At the time of posting, the minimum payment of €19.90 (around $22), buys you 2,000 export credits, which translates to 400 x 20MP images or a total of 333 million scan points”

I know this is old news but it made me wonder if anyone would try “pay for what you save” model of pricing. Seems kinda stupid but I wouldn’t put it past adobe or autodesk.
