Details of our Maintenance Agreements, what’s included and options available.


About Maintenance

When you buy a perpetual product license, you will receive a digital download of the latest build; this is a license for that version – it’s yours to keep and will work with a compatible version of Cinema 4D.

A perpetual license comes with a 12-month Maintenance Agreement which includes many benefits, accessible when logged into your Customer Account.

After 12 months, your Maintenance expires and a new Maintenance Agreement needs to be purchased to continue accessing Maintenance benefits.

What's Included?

Having a Maintenance Agreement allows you to access many benefits:



What happens when your Maintenance expires?

After your Maintenance Agreement expires, your perpetual license will still be valid, but you will no longer receive the benefits included with Maintenance.


To continuously access Maintenance benefits, you should buy a new Maintenance Agreement before it expires, during your Maintenance Period.

After expiry, we give you up to 12 months to buy a new Maintenance Agreement during your Reactivation Period, but you will miss out on the Maintenance benefits until you ‘reactivate’.

After your Reactivation Period, we give you a further 12-month Last Chance Period to buy a new Maintenance Agreement, but it will cost you more to cover the number of Updates that will be released over the two years.

Buying Maintenance during your Maintenance or Reactivation Period will add 12 months to your existing expiry date. If you buy Maintenance during your Last Chance Period, 24 months will be added to your existing expiry date.

If you wait until 24 months after your Maintenance expires, you are Too Late and can no longer buy a new Maintenance Agreement for that license. The only options are to buy a new perpetual license or take out an INSYDIUM Subscription.

Maintenance Agreement

The INSYDIUM Maintenance Agreement provides maintenance for X-Particles licenses beginning with 'XPL' and will bring your Cycles 4D Maintenance expiry date in line unless it is more than 6 months before your X-Particles Maintenance expiry date.

Depending on when you purchase, the INSYDIUM Maintenance Agreement will give you an additional 12 or 24 months cover after your existing X-Particles Maintenance expires. Your Cycles 4D Maintenance expiry date will be updated to match the new expiry date of your X-Particles Maintenance Agreement, giving you up to an additional 18 or 30 months cover.
