Stop requiring form filled out for free version

PostWed May 16, 2018 3:59 pm

Is there any chance we can stop requiring to fill out the entire form.. or any of it, to download the free version. I have registered my info multiple times.. and now I just randomly tap some keys quickly to bypass it. I understand wanting to know who is downloading the free version.. but at some point.. especially during a beta, it gets tiring re-entering the same info. Use cookies maybe.. to determine if they need to see the form again.. I know its not a solution all the time, but at least it would avoid me having to fill in a bunch of dummy info to get the download. Put a checkmark.. already been here.. or just have the form with email.. and then if the email is registered.. start the download. If not, then ask for the form fill out. Easy stuff to put in place.. would save many of us a lot of time.

Since you joined this forum about two years ago I wonder how long have you been using Resolve?
Perhaps it is time to appreciate Blackmagic and buy a license for $299?

Small price to pay in light of what you get. Particularly considering what information everybody else has about you already.

But getting a license for 299$/€ does not help.
I have it and the form must be filled nevertheless...

Not to me, I get a "Download Only" option in the left bottom corner:

Hi,
No offense,
Buying a license or not does not mean explicitly free training.

In summary: always, always experiment. I did not say it first: it comes from BMD for a very long time :roll:

It’s being offered for free, so what’s the big deal about entering a bit on information each time?

I have the paid version, & in my opinion, BMD would benefit themselves by being more explicit about the performance & feature advantages of getting the paid version. That’s a thread in itself.

The paid version is a bargain!

i also hate this really stupid fill out forms and annoying angular web pages, which make it very complicated to repack the installer into native debian packages automatically by CI means, etc. ...

but on the other hand it's an appreciated reminder, to demonstrate and feel again, what makes the difference between real 'free' software and this very questionable kinds of 'free beer' surrogate. ;)

wow, people want so much for nothing. Complaining about filling out a form in order to get a pro level grading software for free??

And for those that have the studio version - just click download only.

Come on people, it isn't that difficult
