Floating License Server
  • I there were ever an aescript product that that needs a VIDEO TUTORIAL ---- THIS IS IT!

    Please make one. The install document, while chock full of information, is very confusing. The .exe names are also not indicative of their function. I still can't figure out how get a windows server to run as a server.

  • Hi, our Studio has no server. We run off of the internet as we are largely remote.

    Does this Floating License Server require a physical server?

  • Hi,
    how many users can use the floating license via the FTS at once?

    Is it possible to request a license within the AE script panel?

    Do i need a network render server for this?

    Thanks!

    There isn't a limit to how many users can use the server but you must have enough licenses loaded i. the server for your number of concurrent users as each license can only be used by one user at a time. Tools that support floating licenses, both plugins and scripts, are clearly indicated on their respective product pages and you can order a floating license to use with the server. Not sure what you mean by "network render" but you do need to have available port in your network to run the server and clients.

  • Ahh okay

    One more think, it is very unclear from the documentation on where the .plist file is meant to live on the client machine, where should I be keeping it?

    The information could change and this specific question is machine specific so please open a support ticket for assistance.  This is also covered in the instructions included with the server.
  • I have bought a server license to install it on several machines in our network, the plug in is not working on the machines, please support.

  • Yeah it's pretty easy saying 'please visit this link if you have additional questions'. It's not that easy for a person with no knowledge of Command Prompt to set up a server like this. Just make a tutorial so we can actually see what we need to do.

    Floating licenses are intended for enterprise or customers with many users where command-line experience is common. Perhaps you would prefer the single user licenses which are much easier for a single user to use.
