"Color Efex Pro 3 Plugin for Capture NX2"


Carterton, NZ
          

Can anyone tell me how I can get a legitimate license for Color Efex Pro 3 (CEP3)?

I have trial version of the software installed and it's integration with Capture NX2 is great. I have 28 days tun on the trial.

I'd rather not buy CEP4 as it's not integrated with Capture NX. That said, I'd pay for the Nik complete license (which includes CEP4)if I could get a product key for CEP3. Would the license key for CEP4 work with CEP3?

Any help or pointers appreciated.

Back in January I was in the same place you are except I had the complete package for Lightroom. I asked if they could sell me a license for CEP3 for NX2 and I was told they didn't even have the option in their system to sell it. The Rep told me if I could find a person willing to sell me their copy and fill out the required NIK form that that would work.

I then asked if I could just switch my CEP3 Lightroom license for the CEP3 for NX2 and was told no. The Rep kept working with the system and found out that since Lightroom license that they could extend that to the NX2 license. They sent me a key for the NX2 license within 24 hours.

I don't know if this option is still available with the new bundle option but it may be worth contacting NIK to find out, be persistent and courteous.

I managed to negotiate a deal with Nik to buy the current Complete Collection and they gave me a license for Color Efex 3 as well. All I had to do was email them receipt for the Complete Collection purchase. I had to be polite but insistent in escalating my request as the front line service person wasn't authorized to make this offer. All resolved in about three days.

This is really a great outcome. Most images can be processed within Capture NX2/Color Efex 3 and, if I need mor,e I can use any of the modules in the complete collection.
