What is a one-time purchase license? (Updated Sept. 7, 2022)

A one-time purchase license allows you to use Clip Studio Paint unlimited just by paying once.

Note: This type of license is only supported on Windows and macOS operating systems.



Are updates free of charge?

Only September and December 2022 updates for Version 1.X will include new features for free.

From 2023 onwards, free stability updates for Version 1.X will be provided only to fix major bugs or errors that may arise.



Which services can I use?

As usual, you can download materials from Clip Studio Assets and receive assistance from User Support.



What version can I get now?

One-time purchase licenses currently on sale grant you Version 1.X.


Version 2.0 release is planned for the first half of 2023.

Version 2.0 will bring new features, but both the user interface and existing controls will remain almost unchanged.



If I have purchased Version 1.X, can I receive Version 2.0 for free?

No, Version 1.X does not grant free access to Version 2.0.

Version 2.0 will be launched as an additional service.

New versions will not be sold at a discounted price, nor as a special upgrade from previous versions.



If I change my device, will I still be able to use my one-time purchase license without limits?

To use Version 1.X unlimited, please check the system requirements down below:



The app is designed to work even if the above operating environment changes in the future, such as Windows/macOS updates. If Clip Studio Paint performance decreases due to an operating system update or a technical issue, a free stability update will be implemented.


Free stability updates will cover both the current and previous versions. For example, if a free stability update is released during Version 2.0, it will fix bugs in both Version 2.0 and Version 1.X.
