    That's cool. I would definitely like to become better with it.

    • Not available to education institutions teaching NUKE
    • Not available for instructional use or installation or use in a classroom or lab
    • Not available for use in the same pipeline as commercial versions of NUKE
    • Not available for use on the premises of a for-profit company during its normal working hours
    • Not available for use in the provision of a service to 3rd parties, whether paid or not
    • Not available for use during the user’s normal working hours
    • Not available for use in a cluster of non-commercial NUKE STUDIO licenses


    I'm not sure what they mean by "normal working hours". So if I take a day off during the week I can't use it till after 6?

    Actually there are several limits.

    The non-commercial NUKE STUDIO will be functionally restricted in the following ways:
    •Output resolution limited to HD.
    •2D format support disabled for DNxHD, MPEG
    •Encrypted data storage : All external data storage is encrypted, including NUKE scripts (these are saved with the extension .nkple), gizmos (saved with the extension .gzple), Nuke studio timeline projects (saved with extension .hrox ple) and copying to the clipboard. Among other things, this means the Non-Commercial NUKE saves files in an encrypted format, unlike the commercial version, which saves scripts unencrypted as plain text. The commercial version of NUKE cannot load files created with the Non-commercial version. Non-commercial NUKE, however, can load scripts and gizmos created with the commercial version.
    •Limited Python scripting. Non-commercial NUKE restricts the amount of nodes that can be retrieved at a time by scripting. Functions such as "nuke.allNodes()" in Python will return only the first 10 nodes available rather than all of them at once, and scripts written to iterate through the Node Graph will not be able to retrieve any more nodes beyond a set point. The commercial version of NUKE can retrieve any and all nodes at any time as the command names would suggest.
    •Disabled nodes including: The WriteGeo node and the Primatte node are disabled in Non-commercial NUKE.
    •No Monitor output support: There is no video monitor output support in Non-commercial NUKE.
    •No 3rd party plugin support: Only plug-ins that are shipped with NUKE can be used in the PLE. OFX plug-ins and custom plug-ins compiled with the NDK can only be used in the commercial version of NUKE.
    •Command line rendering disabled: It is not possible to render a Non-commercial NUKE script with -x from the command line.

    At Free I'd have a chance at learning it. Was a simple form to fill out. We'll see what happens.
    THANKS for the share!

    HRGiger, as i read it its not the PLE one, if you scroll down its the non commercial use one, whilst of course there are limitations in its use as far as i can see the software is not crippled.

    Have to admit if there is going to be this in 2015 i dont see the point of the PLE version.

    Pleasure Dave and my thoughts exactly, no excuses not to learn it now for me.

    Smart move considering that Natron is free and is a clone of Nuke.

    Tried Natron, looks promising, but it's very unstable. I hope it matures soon.

    The Limits are okay for non-commercial projects, but what the hell are:

    -... available for download on a 30-day rolling license ...
    - ... Cannot be used during the user’s normal working hours...

    Hmm, waiting for 2015...

    Not sure as you said we will have to wait for 2015.

    I think you have to take into account that the release of a version like this probably only happens after a lot of meetings and debates. I'd say the restrictions are a list of things that also include some ridiculous stipulations that someone demanded to get a vote. So the thing moves forward, gets released and everyone is happy.

    End users get it. It is not for commercial use. Enough said.

    Yeah, this one made me laugh. I'm always working. Not at the same time of the day either. What are they going to do, monitor each and every user as to then they are using it and if it isn't within some parameters of what they think their "normal working hours" are, shut the app down remotely? This is about the weirdest limitation I've ever seen. I get what their intent is; not to be used "while at your day job". Just strange, otherwise.
