Pricing and Licensing 

 

Lucid Discounts 

  • Volume Discount
    To help you get Lucid into your studio we provide discounts whenever you purchase more than one license. The discount applies in incremental portions for 5 and 10 licenses. For the exact figures please refer to the purchase section.
  • Upgrade Discounts
    Ephere provides two separate upgrade discounts for all existing Lucid users who own a previous version of the plugin:
    • Free upgrade is available to anyone who has purchased a previous Lucid version later than 6 months before the latest version came out. For example, if you have purchased Lucid V1 in October 2016, you are eligible for a free upgrade to Lucid V3 which came out in January 2017.
    • 25% discount is available to all previous Lucid license holders who do not fall under the first category above. A special 50% discount is available to people who upgrade within the first month of a new version coming out.
  • Student and Educational Discount
    If you are a student or a school and can prove your enrollment and educational status you are eligible to our 50% educational discount. A valid and current ID emailed to us is acceptable as proof.
  • Crossgrade Discount
    If you own a license of a competing product and can prove this ownership you are eligible for a 25% crossgrade discount. A competing product is any other hair solution for 3ds Max which is currently under active development. A valid and current proof of purchase for a competing product emailed to us is acceptable as proof.
 

Licensing 

When you purchase an Lucid license, you are buying a perpetual license for the current version of the product. Even after the next and newer versions of Lucid come out you may continue downloading, installing, and using the version which you purchased. As a license owner you are also eligible for substantial upgrade discounts towards future versions of Lucid.

 

Render Nodes 

If you are installing Lucid on a render node/slave computer you do not require any licenses. Lucid will not ask to be licensed when rendering only. Therefore, only workstation computers require a license and you may install Lucid on an unlimited number of network render computers.

 

Pricing 

Prices for Lucid licenses depend on multiple factors. Your individual price can vary depending on various discounts which we provide. Please see the purchase section for the exact figures. Prices may change at any time without notice.

 

Refunds 

We have a no-refund policy except if a payment is made in error or there are any issues with the payment transaction. We are happy to help you resolve any issues should you experience them promptly.
