If it is a public beta (which it prolly will be cause else sidefx wouldn't make a public statement) then you can use it…

Thanks rmagee.

Do we have to get a new license for H 9.5 or does the H 9.1 license work?

Houdini 9.5 will use a new license. Customers with AUP plans will be contacted about acquiring new licenses in the next week. Details about upgrading Apprentice HD will be part of the official news.

Hello rmagee,


I'm a little bit confused (too much drinks , I think ), but does the public beta version also needs this new H9.5 license?



thanks for the info

If you want to use Master, Escape or Apprentice HD licenses to run 9.5 then you need to get an upgraded license.

Otherwise you can run 9.5 in Apprentice mode and work with it for free.

Details about all of this will be available next week when we make the formal announcement. Please save questions until then.

OK so I just purchased the Apprentice HD version a couple of weeks ago. If I want to run 9.5 I have to purchase another license? How much is the upgrade HD version for 9.5?

EDIT: OOOOPS… I just noticed your quote, “Details about all of this will be available next week when we make the formal announcement. Please save questions until then.”

Hello,

If I got a H 9.1 Master License, do I need a new license to run H 9.5 beta or can I use the 9.1 license?

Houdini 9.1 Master licenses need to be upgraded to run 9.5. The 9.5 license will still run 9.1. An AUP plan is needed to get the 9.5 license or an upgrade can be purchased.

If you bought it to test on the Mac after March 31st then we will send you a license over the next few days. If you bought it for LINUX/Windows after May 12th then you will also be sent a license.

Well that's not good. Seeing that I purchased mine on the 10th of May I guess I should have waited an extra 2 days. How much are updates for HD versions?

p.s. Originally I purchased it to test it on the Mac but upon install I noticed that it was 64-bit only. (bad luck on that too. i purchased the CoreDuo 2 months before the release of the Core2Duos)
