Author Topic: Medium by Adobe: FAQ  (Read 2666 times)

Why is Medium by Adobe a new/different app from Oculus Medium? 
• We had to properly convert users from Facebook users to Adobe users, under a different Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Creating a new app was the cleanest way to do this. The new app picks up from Oculus Medium 2.3.3 as Medium by Adobe 2.4 and includes a few new features, plus bug fixes and performance improvements. Ongoing updates to Medium by Adobe will push to this new app.   

Will I need to buy the app again?   
• No. Medium by Adobe is a free download from the Oculus store for everyone.   

Will Medium by Adobe be on a subscription plan?   
• No.   

Will my previous Oculus Medium art open with Medium by Adobe?   
• Yes. All of your current Oculus Medium sculpts will open fine with Medium by Adobe. This includes custom/imported stamps! As always with any software update, you should back-up your drives before downloading and installing. 

What will happen to the Oculus Medium app that I’ve already paid for and/or downloaded?
• Because Medium by Adobe is a new app, the free download will be a completely separate app from Oculus Medium. Whatever version of Oculus Medium you already have will remain on your local machine and will not be affected by the new app. Oculus Medium is subject to Oculus/FB's Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, and Oculus Medium will not be supported by Oculus going forward. Medium by Adobe will be a continuation of the tool, and will be supported and updated by Adobe. 
Will I need to have an AdobeID?   
• Not yet, but we will likely integrate AdobeID at some point in the future.

Is Medium by Adobe tied to Substance?   
• No. Substance is purchased/downloaded completely separately from Medium by Adobe. That said, we work very closely with the Substance teams, and have a ton of super exciting things in the works! 

Will Medium by Adobe work with Creative Cloud?
• No.

Will Medium by Adobe be available on other platforms like Steam and Viveport?
• Medium's move to Adobe unlocks a lot of opportunity! We are definitely exploring our options for getting Medium by Adobe on more hardware.

What will happen to the existing Oculus Medium social media channels?   
• The existing Oculus Medium social channels will be decommissioned. We're working on our new social media plan for Medium by Adobe, and will likely be joining forces with the Substance community in some way. For now, the best places to commune with other Medium artists is the “Medium by Adobe Artists” Facebook group. We also recently started a Medium channel on the Substance Discord channel, and a Medium forum in the Substance3D forums.

Will Medium by Adobe be on a subscription plan?

Didn't you say the same thing about the Substance products..?

You couldn't make this stuff up.

I guess this statement will be kept for the next years. But no one can tell now what the future holds in 5 years.
Just try to trust Adobe and the Medium team for now.  8)
