The Manga Studio / CLIP STUDIO PAINT team has some important news to share with you all!
Celsys, the creator of Manga Studio, also called CLIP STUDIO PAINT, has requested that we consolidate the Manga Studio brand into CLIP STUDIO PAINT over the new few months. We will complete moving over to the CLIP STUDIO PAINT branding on March 31, 2016.
We believe this consolidation will be a good thing for the overall product, as we’ve noticed some confusion with the co-existence of both brands. Manga Studio and CLIP STUDIO PAINT are the exact same applications but the physical (C.D.) versions are referred to as Manga Studio and digital versions are referred to as CLIP STUDIO PAINT.
The impact to the Manga Studio “user” is minimal:
- Nothing about the current application you are using will change.
- Users will be able to use their Manga Studio 5 & Manga Studio 5 EX serial number to update to future versions of CLIP STUDIO PAINT PRO or CLIP STUDIO PAINT EX (English version).
- Users will continue having access to future free updates and upgrades of CLIP STUDIO PAINT (next update: CSP version 1.5.4).
- Smith Micro will replace the physical versions branded as Manga Studio with physical versions branded CLIP STUDIO PAINT.
- Smith Micro social media resources will continue; Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Deviant Art.
