Description

smartMessage is an instant messenger for NUKE and MAYA. You can use it as a local network and let all your NUKE and MAYA artists in your company communicate with each other to let them work more efficiently as a team. And you can also use it to get connected to a global network of digital artists from all over the world.

Besides writing text SmartMessage offers the ability to exchange data like node setups, images, 3D data like cameras and even animated geometry. This results in a fast way to communicate and enhances the collaboration among artists.

By using the local chat the computer you're working on doesn't need to be connected to the web. All data like text histories and files will be stored on a local path. On the other hand by using the global chat all data that will be generated is stored securely and crypted on the cragl server.

Do I get updates?

Yes. If you buy a license you will always and forever get any update - no matter how small or big the update is. That's what we call a fair deal.

 

Do cragl tools work on machines that are not connected to the web as well?

Yes. Any tool can be installed and used fully featured with and without inernect connection. If your machine is connected to the web, then installing any cragl product is dead simple and literally takes you just 3 clicks. But installing any cragl product when your machine is not connected to the web is also simple. For more information about offline installation and usage please refer to the faq site on our website: www.cragl.com/faq

 

Which kinds of licenses do you offer?

We offer node locked licenses and site licenses.

Node locked licenses are locked to the machine that you install it to. Licenses can also be transfered to another machine.

Site licenses can be used on an infinite amount of machines and are not locked to the machine. The machines don't need to be connected to the web (this also applies to our node locked licenses!) You can also use site licenses on athera and any other dockerized environment.

On how many machines can I use my purchased license?

That depends on the type of your license. If you buy one node locked license you can use it on one machine for commercial use plus on a personal computer/laptop for personal use. If you buy more than one node locked license then you can use all of your purchased licenses on your machines for commercial use. If you buy a site license, then you can use this license on any machine on as many machines as you need. The license will then not be node locked and can be used on any machine - even in Foundry's athera and other dockerized environments.
