I wish I had purchased this plug-in when it was available from NIK. Now that Google owns these products, CEP3 for NX2 is not available for purchase. Since I own the whole suite of plug-ins for Photoshop, I called NIK/Google and inquired if it was possible to get a product key for CEP3. I was told it's not possible for them to even generate one anymore. The tech advised me to see if I could buy a "used" copy on Ebay. I've searched the internet and can't find a used version anywhere. Would anyone on this forum have a suggestion of where to possibly get a used version or product key? I was able to download the latest MAC version (that's still available on the web site) but it requires a product key to activate.
Yes... I have the whole suite I purchased before the NIK Collection came out. I called and said that I own those but I still need a product key. I'll try the key I have CEP 4 and let you know if that works...I'm not hopeful though.
Any thoughts on where I could purchase a used version?
I tried the product key I have for CEP 4 and it doesn't work as I suspected. I have the CEP 3 trial filter installed on my CNX2 software but it only shows that the TRIAL HAS EXPIRED. It's like it's teasing me! I just need a key to get the thing to work without the expiration message.
I'll call then again and see what can be done. Any other ideas on where to obtain (purchase) a key for this software?
I recently 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 a copy of my purchase receipt for The Complete Collection and they emailed me the CEP3 license key. It took a bit of polite escalation over three days.
