    The prices increased back this summer since they have been $299 for over 5 years.  You can renew at the $299 price if you go over to videoguys.com who is offering a special on the renewal.

    Actually, you can renew support for your perpetual license at the low 299/yr price for multiple years in one go. I did that earlier this year, and renewed two licenses with 24 months each.

    Really? you did this on avids website? I didn't see a option for this. I went the videoguys route as I had planned only to spend the 299 already.

    No. I got the 285 USD renewal offer from Videoguys earlier this year. That added 12 months of support. Then I bought another renewal from them, and that added another 12 months of support. So my renewal date went from July 2019 to July 2020 to July 2021.

    Re: price for perpetual license went up?

    My question is this, if I choose to renew my perpetual by buying it thru Videoguys this year (turning off auto renewal thru Avid), do I now have to purchase my renewal thru videoguys from this point forward avery year?  Or, if I want to, once the videoguys purchased renewal is up in a year, can I go back to buying the perpetual directly from avid again?

    Whichever you prefer, you will not be locked in or out of anything.
    When you purchase through a reseller, they give you a redemption code which you enter on the Avid portal. Nothing else changes.
