Activating and Evaluating Artlantis

The first time Artlantis is launched, the activation and evaluation dialog is displayed.

You can evaluate Artlantis and the Maxwell Render engine for 30 days. During the evaluation period, a watermark is displayed across the renderings for both Atlantis and Maxwell Render engines. When the evaluation period is over, Artlantis will no longer run. However, you can still activate it by entering a serial number, so any work started during the evaluation period can be continued.

Potential Problem

License cannot be validated.

The maximum number of users associated with the license in question has been reached. To activate the license number on a new workstation, you must first deactivate it on the workstation(s) currently using this license*. You can then activate the number on the new workstation. Another solution is to purchase a new license at a reduced cost. Contact your reseller for more information.

NOTE: *You do not have to uninstall the software. Simply deactivate the license.
