Granite for Unity License FAQ


On how many computers can I install Granite for Unity with 1 Seat?

One seat allows you to install Granite for Unity on up to two machines (one primary and one secundary computer) for use only by the same user. You may not use both installations simultaneously.

Our licenses are ‘semi-node locked’ in that sense that we allow you to deactivate an install and re-use it. In other words, you can change your machine but you need to notify us so that we can reset your account. There is a time limit of two weeks between machine changes.

You can find more info on how to de-activate at our documentation center.

What is the difference between buying a seat and subscribing?

The main difference is the duration during which you can use your seat. The seat type also determines the period during which you receive updates and your payment schedule. The table below shows the details.

Payment scheduleOnceYearly
UpdatesMajor Unity version you initially bought (currently Unity 5)12 months

Does everyone in my team need a seat?

You only need a seat for every machine that needs to run the Unity editor or one of the Granite tools. People that focus on creating content outside of the engine do not require a license. Test machines that run a shipping build of your application also do not require a license.

Yes! See this questions.


My team has finished a project and I want to pass along the seats to another team. Can I?

What platforms can I run on?

I need many Seats! Do you offer some kind of volume discount?

Do I need to buy a new seat for every new Unity version?

If you buy a seat you buy the right to use that version of Granite for Unity indefinitely. You’ll also get updated versions of the plugin for the Unity version that you licensed (currently Unity 5).

If you subscribe, you can use the plugin during your subscription period. Both the subscription with yearly and monthly payments are valid for 12 months. Your subscription will be automatically renewed after this period. A subscription with monthly payments can be cancelled every month after the first 12 months. You are committed to paying all monthly payments during those first 12 months.

The subscription entitles you to all updates of Granite for Unity (both major and minor). When you buy a seat instead of subscribing, you get all minor updates for the specific version that you bought.


When can I expect the next release?

We release a new version of Granite for Unity for every new Unity minor version. Such a release is usually more than just an upgrade to a new engine version. Granite for Unity is based on our flexible and powerful Granite SDK. Every new release exposes more features of Granite SDK inside of Unity. We are also constantly adding workflow and user interface improvements.


What applications can I create with Granite for Unity? Are there differences between the licenses?

Both the Seat license and the standard Project license allow you to create entertainment products like games and cinematic experiences. Architectural visualization and production visualization applications are also allowed. The standard licenses do not allow you to use Granite for military and gambling applications or in an online application platform. Also, the use in any kind of tool or virtual world editor to license or distribute to 3rth parties is explicitly not allowed. Contact us if you need a license for an excluded application: info@graphinesoftware.com.
