  About the TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in AVC for Premiere Pro license


  • A license is valid for one machine and one operating system (The software cannot be installed on more than one computer or OS at a time);
  • TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in AVC for Premiere Pro cannot be used without a license validation;
  • The license validation must be renewed periodically. (If, upon validating your license, you check the "Automatically validate next time" option, the license renews without displaying the validation window);
  • The license validation file contains a validity limit which prompts the automatic renewal of the license validation when reached. (If you do not have an Internet connection at the time the license validation renewal is required, you may temporarily lose the ability to use the software. In case the license validation's validity period has expired, validation renewal can be done to regain access to the software.);
  • During the validation term, the license verification occurs offline, so there is no need for access to the Internet.
  • License information is stored in the TMPGEncPrPlugin2.en.lic file.
    *This file includes the license information and computer specific information. Please do not erase or provide this file to another person (Precautions have been taken to avoid issues in cases of computer part changes);
  • The data transmitted during the license validation or renewal are only for license management;
  • License data and transmitted data are highly encrypted.

When re-installing your OS, or changing to a different machine
When you re-install the operating system or the application, or when changing to a different computer, you can continue using the application by uninstalling it from the old computer and then installing it on the new computer and performing the license key validation again. However, if you perform many re-installations within a short period of time, in some cases your license may be suspended. For this reason, if you contact us by e-mail before you change your computer environment, we can more rapidly respond to the issue in case the validation server suspends your license.
