Drastic's software products install and will run without a license, but will feature a number of restrictions. We are happy to provide you with a fully functional temp license if you would like to test our software. Here are details on how to obtain a license.
You Will Need a License
If you run Drastic software without a license, many of the features will be unavailable. Also, there will be watermarks you cannot remove (image below), 10 second media duration, length of run limitations, no hardware support, nag screen, auto-shutoff, and other significant limitations. Please get a temp license if you intend to test our products.
On first run, specific Drastic software will open a licensing options dialog. One of the options allows you to get a temporary demo license online. For all other Drastic software, or to get a permanent license, you will need to run the offline licensing application, enter your name and email address into the licensing form, and send us a site code via email, with your request, to get a reply with a key. Note: permanent licenses are provided upon receipt of payment only.
