I recall trying to use free trials of certain software.
Keep in mind that with legal free trials, many of these software programs are deliberately missing key/important features that you will need to learn. You can't use them. They want/need you to pay for the full version to get all the bells and whistles that make their programs workable, beloved and appreciated by creators all over the world.
By using illegal or pirated copies of these programs? You will be considered invisible to the software developers and their tech support. They ain't going to help you regardless of whether you use them now or by the time the official online support comes and passes the deadline.
