I'm on the fence here.... I've already got an earlier corel humble bundle with almost everything already listed, but the one thing I don't have is CorelCad and I keep threatening to try graduating up from tinkercad.

Not sure if I want to spend $40 just for that.... (upvoted anyways).

Great bundle.
I got the similar one from last year. Worth it for just for Painter.

Thanks OP. CorelCAD is new this year, as is CorelDraw Suite... sucks the later is only 6 months subscription though. Compared to last year they removed the Suite version of PaintShop Pro 2020 (included AfterShot but that's now included in tier 1), upgraded Painter to 2020 (excellent upgrade) and completely removed Pinnacle Studio video editing (which was excellent), Photo Mirage (which was simply ok) and Gravit Designer Pro (it was a 1 year sub so meh). They also substituted some plugins and brushes, basically, but include more this year. So, in the end, CorelCAD ($899 CAD value) and the upgrade to Painter 2020 from 2019 (a $269 CAD value) are the largest upgrade differences but missing Pinnacle Studio is a loss for those new to the package. However, for those who are new and haven't bought in to Humble's yearly Corel package this is a great deal.

For comparison, here was last years Corel bundle:

Yeah, I just picked up on that as well. I don't do subs so that's a complete write-off for me. These are still amazing bundles for folks who don't already have them.

The only downsides to Corel software are how aggressive they are with their Nag/Upgrade notifications, and they all seem to have some kind of front-end launcher that adds an extra step into launching their programs from the desktop.

Separate keys is how the previous bundle came, I can't imagine it'd be any different for this one. I'm considering grabbing this for the Cad and then sharing the keys to stuff I've already got with friends/family who might be interested.

I couldn't agree more. I don't know why they persist doing so in this day and age where web popups are basically verboten (in new windows, at least) and most people hate them. The software, however, is so good I take a bit of time to disable those popups completely whenever I reinstall an app or the entire suite I want (only do once after all Corel apps you want are installed). Here are "everyman" instructions to do so for those interested and it does, indeed, wipe those popups out. A pain, but it works:
Part 1:

Hold down the Windows and R keys on the keyboard simultaneously
When the Run box appears, release both keys
Type: appdata in the Run text box
Click OK
Double click on the Roaming folder to open it
Double click on the Corel Folder
Find the Messages folder and delete it
Start a Corel app again, such as PaintShop Pro, etc
The Messages folder will get recreated in the above location
Enter the newly recreated Messages folder again
Find the Message.policy file and edit it
In Message.policy, change the value="opt-in" to instead read value="opt-out"
Save the file, then right click it and mark it Read Only


Part 2:

In Start Menu start typing Control Panel and run it
In Control Panel click Administrative Tools
In the right-hand pane double-click Task Scheduler (allow permission if asked)
In the left-hand pane select Task Scheduler Library
In the top middle pane you should see a list of scheduled events. Look for those related to Corel (in mine there are 'CorelUpdateHelperTask' and 'CorelUpdateHelperTaskCore') as well as Pinnacle (in mine there are 'PinnacleStudio23Notifier' and 'PinnacleStudio23Updater')
Right-click on each one and select 'Disable'

Yes they do for most apps - outside of the plugins and brushes which are directly downloaded. Each app and plugin / brush pack has it's own download and install.

Note: this year the keys are valid for 2 unique devices.

Also note on Mac: AfterShot, CorelCAD, Painter 2020 and the brush packs are available to install. PaintShop Pro 2020, Particle Shop and the CorelDraw 6 month subscription is unavailable as a download from Humble, although some people last year had success finding their own downloaders and using the bought humble keys to register them properly.

Did you end up buying the new bundle on top of the old one?

Yes. At these prices I upgrade my Corel suite every year through Humble when the upgrades are worth it. This year the Painter 2020 upgrade is well worth it and the new CorelCAD is as well. I'll sell, trade or give away to family or friends the Paint Shop Pro 2020, AfterShot and ParticleShop keys I already have licenses for that were not upgraded this year. Most of the brush packs are new this year so will keep them as well.

By the way: if anyone already owns a pen enabled convertible laptop (recommended), tablet or graphics tablet I'd very highly recommend Corel Painter... it is beyond excellent. One can currently pick up a very inexpensive but very good quality and featured graphics tablet from Huion, the 1060Plus, for $65.99 shipped after coupon clip (no taxes) from Amazon.ca:

Heh... that's literally the exact reason I bought the package last year. I'd picked up one of the Huions in a sale and wanted something other than Paint to use it with. :)

I'm probably going to grab this year's bundle as well. I've already got 2020 Painter (I suspect there was a reasonably inexpensive upgrade offer) but I've been in the market for something beefier than tinkercad, and not sure I want something as complex as blender or fusion 360 (plus they're nerfing the free home-use fusion 360). I'm starting with zero knowledge though so I grabbed a beginner's blender course on Udemy and will see if I can transfer what I learn from that over to the trial version of CorelCad.

The only one out of the bunch that's a subscription is the Corel Draw and it's a 6 month sub.

If you currently or want to edit digital photos you take on your laptop / computer to dramatically improve them...
If you currently or will have a ton of digital photos you want to organize...
If you have a laptop that has pen support or a computer / laptop and $66 you'd spend on a graphics tablet (see above)...
If you feel artistic and want an excellent way to paint, draw, illustrate or otherwise use amazingly real-world feeling art media such as paints, pens, chalk, etc, etc without the mess or cleanup...
If you currently or want to work with Computer Aided Design software to create new objects for 3D printing, graphic art projects, computer gaming, etc, etc...

then yes, I'd very highly recommend this bundle at this very cheap price. If no to *all* the above, I'd skip it.

Hope that helps.

As @sswilson said. You can see each of the license types in the image I posted a few posts back for each software component. Indeed, near all of these are perpetual outside of CorelDraw.

For those that are thinking of trying this for the discounted CorelCad license, this bundle includes the old 2019 version and not the updated 2020 version. For me on a Mac that means the retina display support is non-existent and the application looks terrible and hard to read on my 27" iMac. Really inexcusable on a modern app IMHO.

Its been a few years since I've used CorelCAD (I think 2015ish) but even back then it was pretty powerful. Since it supports DWG and AutoCAD imports it makes it pretty universal. I really liked its 2D featureset and its 3D was pretty good as well but I was less interested in that aspect. On the affordability scale this simply can't be beat.

Have you enjoyed your Huion and Painter? I sometimes use my HS610 when I'm using my main gaming laptop or am traveling with it or only have my android phone. I really, really enjoy it. I mainly use Painter with my convertible work laptop, however, a Lenovo Yoga 730 and my wife's Flex 14. Both have pen support and its wonderful using Painter to illustrate directly on screen. Painter is definitely my favorite of the many painting apps on Windows.

A very good digital painter on the web with excellent tutorials, custom brushes, etc, etc is Aaron Rutten. His Corel tutorials are uniformly excellent and very in-depth... when he has a good sale (look for 2020 tutorials to be highly discounted when his 2021 tutorial gets released soon) you can pick it up well under a hundred or so and that gives access to his entire collection of previous tutorials (Corel, Photoshop, etc), tons and tons of custom brushes, software, etc. Worth a look if anyone wants to learn or hone their skills in digital painting or illustration.
