As of January 17, 2024, dearVR PRO will no longer be part of the MEGA Bundle, or available for purchase on Plugin Alliance.

For our active MEGA Bundle subscribers, you will receive a free full license of the Dear Reality dearVR PRO. This will ensure that you can continue to access and use dearVR PRO even after its removal from the MEGA Bundle. The legacy installer will be available to download for MEGA Bundle & dearVR PRO users on our Plugin Alliance website. Please note that the latest version of the plugin is now considered a legacy version and is discontinued, therefore will no longer be maintained.

In order to activate your Full-License, simply re-activate your current dearVR PRO plugin by following our usual activation steps whenever you purchase a new plugin from us. Here’s a guide to help you:
