    Beta should be out soon, but no one here would have knowledge of exact dates. Nov 10 is 3 weeks, I suggest you just hold of on renewing till you have the beta and have an idea how long migration will take.

    My CC subscription ended on Oct 26 so I was wondering the same thing regarding being able to have access to LR to run the migration tool.  From what I read on Adobe's website, if you have an annual plan you can run LR offline for 99 days before it cripples itself.  I was planning on canceling my subscription and just not launch LR unless I disconnected my computer from the internet.  When I canceled my subscription I was offered 60 days free which I accepted.  Unfortunately I would still have had to renew my subscription in Oct.  Adobe gives you 14 days to cancel and get a full refund so that would also be an option if RAW 2019 comes out in time.  However, when I went ahead and canceled my subscription, I still got my extra 60 days so I have full access until Dec 26.  I'm not sure on this, but when LR cripples itself, it sounds like you only lose access to any editing capabilities.  I'm guessing that you could still run the migration tool, but I don't know for sure.  Another option would be to cancel your subscription now and then when RAW 2019 comes out subscribe again to get full access to LR. You'd have 14 days to do the migration and then you could cancel your subscription.

    I was just wondering if you guys actually need Lightroom to do the migration. I would be surprised if On1 actually accesses the program. I was thinking it would just scan the database and extract your settings. Since you're not able to try it with the beta, maybe you should ask On1 about this. You might be able to dump Lightroom safely and do the migration later.

    The LR migration tool is installed in LR as plugin.  It's not something that is run from inside Photo RAW.  It's also not supposed to be available until the final release of RAW 2019.

    Yes, you're right. Just asked Whitney, she says you need Lightroom for migration. Too bad about the timing.

    But LR works after the subscription expires. You just can't develop images and the maps module doesn't work anymore.
