I decided that if I were to get back on my feet with Panorama X (having finished any scripting I needed for my self-employment, 25 years ago), the best place to start would be the pay-for training videos. The first thing I noticed was that it was possible to “rent” them, a good choice to see whether they over my head, or actually not the video containing the answers I wanted.
Unfortunately, I clicked on the DL button, not the “Watch” button, and now Panorama thinks I’ve signed up for everything, and will bill me for anything I click on, WITHOUT the option to rent instead of buy. So I’m scared to click on anything. And I can’t retrace my steps to see if, anywhere along the way, the business of rent vs. buy was ever spelled out. I can’t because Panorama has put me in the “buying everything” bin.
I do favor the rent option because this allows me to confirm that a video is relevant to my efforts, and to signal that I don’t need any earlier, prerequisite videos to make use of the one in hand. And even if I needed to brush up on my beginner level, when I can confirm that this video will be one that I’ll constantly refer to as I pursue my project, then I’m happy to buy it and watch it for weeks.
