Secondary License (for Home/Laptop)

For HDR Light Studio 5 a purchase of one license key will license one computer only. Licenses can be transferred once per year.

Two License Models

1. Annual Subscription licenses
Annual Subscription gives customers access to the software at a lower price. Customers on subscription will receive a license to run the software for a year with access to all software updates within the subscription period. When the subscription expires customers can choose to renew it for another year or stop using the software. (Monthly subscriptions will not be available).

2. Permanent licenses
Some customers prefer to buy their software. For those customers we offer permanent licenses of the software. A permanent license will not expire. It will license the current version of the software on the purchase date and any future releases up to 90 days after the purchase date. Permanent licenses cannot be upgraded when a new release becomes available. If you wish to benefit from our program of continuous development, youll need to buy a subscription.

Supported Connections
On launch we will be selling plug-in connections to 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, LightWave3D, MODO and VRED. Support for Bunkspeed, Maxwell Studio, DeltaGen, Houdini and Rhino 3D will come later.
