Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between non-commercial and education licensing?

Non-commercial licenses have usage limitations and restrictions. Non-commercial licenses are for home-use only; therefore, they cannot be used in a commercial environment including schools. Our education licenses provide full non-limited commercial versions of the software meaning students can easily transfer files between home and school machines and take their work with them into the industry. Once a project is started in non-commercial, it cannot later be transferred to education/commercial versions due to file encryption, so projects would need to be started from scratch in full commercial versions. Additionally, Foundry education licenses allow students and graduates to upgrade to permanent commercial licenses at 70% off the commercial price.

Our institution has Production Collective licenses. How can we get Katana included now that it's available for free?

We can get you Katana. Contact us at or talk to your local Foundry representative about how to get Katana. Please note that it might take a few days for us to issue Katana to you.
