Standard or Floating License?

A Standard license will be sufficient for most users. This is a node-locked license, but it can still be manually deactivated from within the Templater Preferences or from within your profile and moved to another machine, if necessary.

Templater can lease a Floating license from a pool of licenses managed by (Linux) server software that you install, setup, and activate on a machine that you control. When After Effects quits, Templater‘s license is released and returned to the pool of licenses. If the machine After Effects is running on is no longer available, the server software will release the license after a user-specified amount of time. The server setup files for Linux are provided with your Templater installation files. You will also need to connect the machines running Templater to the licensing server. This configuration is particularly useful when using virtual machines. If you use the standard license, every time you spin up a new virtual machine, Templater will need to be activated manually.

For further clarification, please review the “What is a Floating License” section in Managing Floating Licenses.  If you remain uncertain as to which license to purchase, please open up a support ticket by mailing
