Software company Foundry has announced its Nuke family of products are now available on an annual subscription.
Each new subscription purchase of NukeX and Nuke Studio will now also include two free Nuke Render subscriptions to help new customers with provisioning render farms, and existing customers looking to expand render farms as workload increases, said Foundry.
“We are committed to lowering the barriers to entry for new customers and those adding new seats of Nuke,” said Christy Anzelmo, chief product officer. Foundry. “Subscription pricing enables customers to purchase more flexibly as their business grows and changes with new shows or projects.”
Subscription customers will enjoy all the same benefits as perpetual license owners, with a choice of either offline or online login-based licensing system (launched recently for Nuke 14.0 onward), and floating rights enabling multiple artists or machines to share the same license, said the company.
Foundry customers who have purchased perpetual Nuke family licenses prior to December 31, 2023 can continue to use and maintain those licenses, while customers on active maintenance will continue to receive product updates and technical support.
