In order to meet the needs of our diverse Max community, we have a variety of license types set at different durations and price points.
There is only one installer and one flavor of the Max application. There are no limited versions, except for the Max 6 Runtime. This means that every license we offer, including the 30-day demo, has the same functionality.
Subscription licenses are licenses that have a specified start and end date. We offer annual subscriptions and monthly subscriptions to accommodate the different needs of our userbase. All subscriptions automatically renew unless you cancel.
Academic licenses are licenses that are priced for students and teachers. This means that the license is registered and owned by an individual end-user. We offer both permanent and subscription academic licenses. Academic licenses can be purchased with a student/teacher ID or proof of enrollment/employment at an academic institution.
Institutional licenses are set at price points created for academic institutions. These licenses are supported differently than our individual consumer licenses purchased from the shop on the website, which are designed for single-user ownership.
The primary differences between institutional/organization purchases and individual consumer purchases are extended transferability, unique deployment methods, and access to license management tools. This means that the license is registered and owned by the institution. We offer both permanent and subscription institutional licenses as well as discounts on licenses purchased by an institution in bulk. For more information, please visit this pricing page.
