About Product Authorization

After obtaining the software, it is necessary to register it online and then perform the authorization procedure. A watermark will appear in rendered images until the authorization process is completed.

The authorization requires you to be a registered user on the PSOFT website and to have registered your product's serial ID. If you bought the packaged version and are not yet registered on the PSOFT website, you will need to first perform user registration.
