  • Purchased licenses have no expiration date and are good for all future updates and added features.
  • Please safeguard license keys for future installations and upgrades.
  • There is a $200 fee for replacement license keys.
  • Building up your renderfarm: If you're in the process of building up your renderfarm you can start with a basic configuration. Just purchase a SquidNet PRO License to unlock all local rendering features and SquidNet CORE licenses for each render node on your farm. For example: A small 4 node renderfarm requires a SquidNet PRO license and 3 CORE license. You can always purchase additional CORE license as your renderfarm and needs grow.
  • For any additional questions on licensing, please send us an email.

Purchasing Instructions:

  1. Determine the size of your render farm by counting the number of physical cores for all SquidNet client, slave and the master nodes. For example, if your render farm has 40 Quad core (4) render nodes (don't count hyperthreaded cores), you'll need to purchase 160 (40 x 4) SquidNet CORE licenses.
  2. Select your license from available options in table below.
  3. Select "Buy Now" button for selected license type.
  4. Enter payment information. Either purchase directly using your Pay Pal account or use a major credit card. If you'd like to purchase via a direct wire transfer or purchase order, please send use an email.
  5. Important: Make sure to provide your email address so we can send you your license(s).
  6. Follow instructions in License Registration Instructions document.
  7. Once we receive your render farm information, we'll send the license(s) to the email address provided in the payment notification.
