Fast CinemaDNG Processor Licensing
Fast CinemaDNG Processor is available under one free and two commercial licenses:
Demo – Demo version is free and could be downloaded directly from fastcinemadng.com. It's intended to give an experience to user in terms of software functionality and performance before purchasing a commercial license. Demo doesn't expire and user can download the latest version from the site to reinstall it on the same PC.
Demo has wide set of features and it's applying watermarks at export. It means that Viewer and Player are working without watermarks, but saved to SSD/HDD images/video have built-in watermarks. Nevertheless, there are some cases, when Demo could work without watermarks:
- Demo is working without watermarks if both width and height of source image are less than 1920 х 1080.
- Demo doesn't apply any watermarks if user needs to export just one frame in TIFF/JPG format with any resolution.
For resolutions 1920 х 1080 and higher, Demo can offer DNG/CinemaDNG export in the mode "As original" only.
User has enough time to test and to evaluate Demo software before ordering commercial license. All other compatibility issues should be solved by user before the purchase:
- Hardware compatibility with CPU, GPU, SSD
- 64-bit OS: Windows-7/8/10 or Linux Ubuntu 16.04
- The latest NVIDIA driver
- Compatibility with external software: Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe AE, Blackmagic Davinci Resolve, FFmpeg, 3DLUT Creator
Before final release, which is expected at Q3/2018, all software features are available in Demo version without watermarks.
Standard – This is licensed commercial version which is capable of processing DNG, CinemaDNG, CinemaDNG RAW and MLV content on a single GPU according to software specification without limitations which are imposed on Demo version. Standard license includes free updates during one year. To switch Demo software to the licensed Standard version, user has to insert license key in registration field. The License is bound to a particular PC and is not allowed to be transferred to another PC, even if the original PC it was installed on, is no longer in use.
Generally, it is allowed to upgrade or replace all of the hardware components at your PC and maintain the license for the original Fast CinemaDNG Processor software with the exception of an upgrade or replacement of the motherboard. Motherboard upgrade is considered to result in a “new computer”. Fast CinemaDNG Processor cannot be transferred from one computer to another. Therefore, if the motherboard is upgraded or replaced, then a new computer has been created, the original license expires, and a new Fast CinemaDNG Processor license is required.
