If I have PL6 do I need a stand alone Viewpoint 3?

In the past I have purchased PL5 and a stand alone Viewpoint 3 but never really understood if I need that or if Viewpoint 3 was included within PL5. I made the mistake of buying a stand alone PureRAW only to find out later I had wasted money. Always used DxO and Nik and love the platform.

Hi John,

VP3 is included in PL beu needs a licence VP3 to activate it inside PL.

Standalone version is independent, and is not required to be installed alongside PL to work there.

Welcome to the forum, John.

From PLv6 release notes: image

These are ; image

Additionally, a VP license will add the Volume Deformation tool to PL;
That is; image - - which is worthwhile, I reckon.

I think? (but am not absolutely sure) that a VPv4 licence is required for the new Vertical/Horizontal Flip feature in PLv6.

Enter the VP license in DPL and you’ll never want or need standalone VP…except for its GUI, which is easier to see. You still need a license though.

Thanks Pathal. So just to confirm I need an activation code which I need to purchase as Viewpoint4 to activate it within the PL6 platform?

Only if you need/want the Volume Deformation tool (also for the Flip feature, I believe) … Otherwise, refer to PLv6’s release notes;

Thanks John thats a great help. I will upgrade to PL6 for sure as I always do but I normally upgrade on day one then get annoyed when DxO give massive discounts for Black Friday so am sitting this one out to see.
