Thank you for being an early adopter of Mocha. We have some important licensing related news -- specifically for customers who are still running older versions of Mocha Pro (versions 3, 4 or 5).
Floating License Support for Legacy Customers: As you may know, in recent years Boris FX unified our products (including the current shipping Mocha Pro) on RLM (Reprise License Manager) for license technology.
From September 1, 2021, Boris FX no longer supports or generates the older FlexLM based licenses. For clarity moving forward, customers with floating licenses that are running Mocha Pro v5.5 or older, and node-locked licenses from Mocha Pro v4 or older, will no longer be able to request license transfers or activate online. Our records show that you purchased one of these versions, and if you are still using it, moving your license to a new computer will require an upgrade or subscription plan.
We highly recommend upgrading to Mocha Pro 2021. For historical reference, here are some of the major feature highlights by version and release date.
Mocha Pro 2019 (v6) Release date: October 2018
Highlights: GPU accelerated Remove Module, Retina/High DPI display support, Magnetic Spline w/edge snapping, Essentials Interface, 360/VR features, Autodesk Flame OFX plugin support, Matte Rendering, and Performance Improvements.
