license renewal question May 24, 2017, 12:27 p.m.

Does anyone know if this is still the case (no auto-renewal, must re-purchase manually)?

Note that IIRC MotionBuilder won't import blendshape settings (even from Maya), so if you're considering using them in MB you'll have to set reconfigure them manually anyway.

Is it ok to have Houdini Apprentice Licences (local) installed for learning purposes and commercial licences for production at one facility? Jan. 24, 2017, 2:54 p.m.

I'd email sales for an answer to this (they're always extremely fast in responding).

When I moved from Apprentice to FX a few years back, I asked a similar question - I was told it was fine back then, but not really a great idea. Even if you avoid license server hassles, all it takes is one little accident to turn a .hip into a .hipnc (or same to an HDA or OTL).

Not sure I'd be comfortable with that in a company setting and users not yet familiar with Houdini.
