Hi;

I know that We cannot install our indie engine licenses on cloud. But would it not be great if we could.

In these times of quarantine, lots of us either lost their jobs, or on the way to lose their jobs, or just cannot get to the next gig because of lock downs.

It is a lot cheaper to rent a machine for a month for a gig then go third party cloud solutions. It requires full custom setup so , setting it up would require extensive linux knowledge for a free OS blades anyway.

I can literally mirror my workspace , that would boost my creativity and compute power tremendously. Are there at least temporary thoughts on this. I would love to be able to just press a button and send my sim or render or TOPs network straigh to my very custom cloud instance or instances…

Thanks

Hello,

As of October 4 2018 we adjusted our Houdini license agreement to allow for this;

Houdini-Indie-Engine licenses to computers in the cloud is permitted:

However, because the free Engine Indie licenses are still node-locked/workstation licenses, you will need to have a separate license server on each machine.
