License Agreement update
Changes to May 5, 2020 Version Since Nov 19, 2019 Version
The EULA has changed to allow generating .ifd and third-party rendering intermediate files from Houdini Indie:
In section 3.7 (ii), from:
the User shall Use only the final work product produced by the Third Party Rendering Software and shall not access or Use or have any rights in or to any temporary or intermediate images or files produced by the Third Party Rendering Software and/or its dedicated Houdini plug-in. Within ten (10) days of a request by SideFX, the third party who provides the Third Party Rendering Software and its dedicated Houdini plug-in shall certify in writing to SideFX the extent to which such third party has implemented technical measures to prevent any breach of such restrictions. For certainty, Users under all License Types other than the Apprentice License and the Indie License may utilize Third Party Rendering Software for the purpose of rendering images created using the Software, without reference to the restrictions and requirements set out in this Section (but, for certainty, subject to the restrictions that otherwise apply to such License Types).
intermediate files produced by either the Software or the Third Party Rendering Software (the "Intermediate Files") do not qualify as final rendered images as used in Section 6.2. Intermediate Files include but are not limited to .ifd and .usd files. For clarity, Indie Users may not Use the Software for Commercial Use to create Intermediate Files for other Organizations unless those Organizations are Eligible Indie Organizations.
In Appendix A, Indie License Type, Permitted Usage, from:
The Software may be Used for Commercial purposes, subject to the revenue limitations set out in Section 6.2 of the Agreement.
The Software may be Used for Commercial purposes, subject to the limitations set out in Sections 6.2 and 3.7 of this Agreement.
