upgrade after just 3 month using C1 12 -is it worth ?

As a long time user I just upgraded from c1 11 to 12 (mac) unfortunately 3 month ago. So there is no official discount or upgrading to C1 20.
Any ideas, if it is worth spending quite a lot of money (increased price again!) or how to get a - lets say more user friendly investment?

I'll be obvious but it depends on how much new features are worth for you. If you think for example that copying single layers is indispensable than the upgrade to 20 is worth. If you can live without it maybe it's not. You can try the new version for 30 days to evaluate if it's worth or not. That's what I'd do. And maybe you could wait for some deal in the next months to save some money, knowing that the later this happens, the more you'll be in the same situation.

Norbert,

ClauS makes a good suggestion about comparing V12 with V20 in a real situation given your recent update.

The list of differences, read as a list, is not able to give you the full picture.

For what its worth I too delayed my upgrade from V11 to V12 (there were a number of reasons for do in so at the time). I finally upgraded 4 months ago.

But for V20 the changes are interesting enough to make the offer price worth the investment immediately. At least for me.

You may come to a different conclusion but run a trial to discover your personal opinion. It's good advice.

David Grover from Phase One has a webcast on key new features in Capture One 20 that might help you assess how relevant these are to you.
