The license: one or two installations?

PostMon Oct 18, 2021 7:13 pm

Hi,

I know this is a super dump question, and must have been asked before, but after reading the license text and several forum comments here, I am still hesitant/ignorant on whether the license allows just one or two installations/activations. Adobe allows two, but does Blackmagic, too? Can you please confirm?

Best regards,

Paheikki

Assuming a Resolve license.

How many machines can I use my activation key on?
Each activation key can be activated twice, for example once on a desktop workstation and another on a laptop. If the license key is activated a third time, then all previous activations of the software will be cleared, and you will need to activate any copy again.

GREAT thanks for your quick answers! When working with video, sometimes rendering takes a lot of time, and it is very useful if another computer can be used to continue.
