The software is available with virtually no upfront capital costs. Customers can also get traditional software licenses.
With this offer, Autodesk gives more choices and flexibility to customers in how they access the portfolio of design, engineering and entertainment creation tools, Autodesk said. Customers get the flexibility to use only what they need when they need it.
Customers who opt for the monthly, quarterly or annual rental plans will receive all the benefits offered to Autodesk Subscription customers. This includes updates about the latest products, access to select Autodesk 360 cloud services and basic support.
“We expect rental plans to be attractive across all the industries we serve, especially for freelancers, startups or businesses that are project-based in nature,” said Andrew Anagnost, senior vice president of Industry Strategy and Marketing at Autodesk, in a statement.
Customers that choose to purchase monthly, quarterly or annual rental plans will receive similar benefits to Autodesk Subscription customers, including staying current with the latest product updates, access to select Autodesk 360 cloud services and basic support.
“Everyone needs to rethink the business model, and Autodesk launching rental plans will really help change the industry. Having scalability -- the flexibility to easily ramp up or back depending on the project -- means we can better compete in the modern visual effects industry,” said CEO and executive producer Will Cohen from U.K.-based VFX start-up Milk.
Autodesk is offering the option to purchase a monthly, quarterly or annual rental plan starting September 16.
