Indigo Licensing

You are welcome to learn Indigo and use it for non-commercial renders without paying for a licence. The following restrictions are present in the free version of Indigo:

  • Maximum resolution of 1.0 Megapixels – e.g. 1000 pixels by 1000 pixels.
  • An Indigo logo is placed in the bottom right of the image.
  • May not be used for commercial work.
  • No customer support beyond that given in the Forum.

If you need to create renders at higher resolutions or produce renders as part of your business, then you need to buy a commercial licence for Indigo. You can buy licences online at:

Once you have purchased a licence, you can instantly enable the full features of Indigo. Your licence will be locked to the hardware of your computer, and you must contact if you need to move the licence to another computer.

The licence for your computer is based on the CPU model of your processor and MAC address of your network card. You should avoid changing your network card regularly when using Indigo – for example avoid enabling and disabling your network card, as this may confuse the licensing software that Indigo uses.

If you wish to purchase multiple licences, you can use the network floating licence feature, managed by the Network Manager. To purchase these licences please contact us at

There are two different kinds of Indigo licences:

  • GUI Licence – for use on your desktop computer
  • Node Licence – for use on networked render slaves

Having a GUI Licence does not mean that you can use unlicensed render slaves to generate a high resolution image, you will need a node licence for each computer that will be used to help you render your image.

If you have any problem with your Indigo licence, you can always contact us at and we'll get you up and running as soon as possible!
