Licensing

After completing the installation process, Blue Pencil will default to demo mode. A license is required to activate the full version. If you do not already have a license for Blue Pencil, one can be obtained from the main page.

  1. From the email you received containing your Blue Pencil license, copy bluepencil.lic to a safe location on your hard drive.

    (e.g. C:/Users/<username>/Documents/maya/bluepencil.lic)

  2. With the plugin loaded, select Licensing... from the Blue Pencil main menu (Blue Pencil->Licensing...). This will display the licensing dialog.

  3. In the licensing dialog, set the license path to the location of bluepencil.lic on your hard drive.

    (e.g. C:/Users/<username>/Documents/maya/bluepencil.lic)

  4. Click the OK button.

Blue Pencil should now be licensed. The path to your license is stored by Maya and these steps should only need to be completed once. If you encounter any problems with licensing, please see the troubleshooting section of the documentation or contact me with the details.
