FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions about Floating Licenses

The ideal solution for workgroups

How do MODO Floating Licenses work?

The peer-to-peer Floating License version of MODO allows businesses and institutions a flexible way to share MODO across their organizations. Using the floating version of MODO allows the software to be used by any suitable PC or Mac computer on a local area network up to the limit of purchased licenses. This means that MODO can “float” to where it is needed in the workgroup according to project needs. Being peer-to-peer, it does not depend upon a single “license server” – avoiding a major downside of other floating license implementations.

Can you clarify the difference between Network Rendering and Floating Licenses?

Floating Licenses are completely different from the network rendering capability of MODO. Each installation of MODO (be it Individual or Floating License) can still render on up to 50 other workstations.

Can I use Floating Licenses in different offices?

No, MODO Floating Licenses are to be installed in a single geographic location, such as one graphics design office.

How do I install Floating Licenses?

First you must install MODO on each workstation (that you want to run MODO on), then once you verify MODO is working you can enable the floating configuration for that workstation.

Can I convert a MODO Individual License to a Floating License?

How do I obtain additional Floating Licenses?

Additional floating licenses can be purchased at any time and simply added to the pool. You can purchase them through Onevideo your Authorized MODO Reseller. In addition, MODO commercial Site Licenses are also available.
