Setup - Registration

License Codes

After you purchase licenses for our products, you’ll receive an email containing the license code(s). The license codes are usually in the following format.


You’ll have to enter/copy & paste the entire license code in the registration window.


If you purchase a product bundle (like the TV Distortion Bundle) every plug-in in the bundle has it’s own license code and each plug-in has to be registered separately.

Registration Window

Register in AE

To activate the plug-in, you’ll need to enter the license code in the registration window. Registration window can be opened by clicking the Register button in the Effect Controls Window in Adobe After Effects.

Register in Pr

In Adobe Premiere Pro, it is slightly different. You’ll need to click that little rectangular box icon to open up the Registration window.

Registration Window

After you enter the license code, press Activate button and if the license code is valid, the plug-in will be registered and all the trial restrictions will be removed.

If you select the checkbox Register All Users, the plug-in will register the plug-in at the system level (requiring Administrator access). Otherwise, the license registration is stored at a user level and hence no Administrator access is necessary.


Deactivation Window

To deactivate the license(s) from the current machine/user open the Registration window and click the ‘Deactivate’ button once. Depending on how the license was registered (user level/system level), administrator access might be necessary.

Command Line

If you order Render Only Licenses or Multiple User Licenses (Generally more than 5), you will receive a command line tool as a part of your download package. Follow these instructions below to register using the command line tool.

Please Note - Render Only Licenses (REN) can only be activated through the command line tool.


  1. Download the cmd-line tool zip archive and extract it.
  2. From the terminal cd to wherever you extracted it and use the following commands Windows:

rwbactivate.exe -activate Plexus3 <your license code>


sudo ./rwbactivate -activate Plexus3 <your license code>

If you wish to de-activate: Windows:

rwbactivate.exe -deactivate Plexus3


sudo ./rwbactivate -deactivate Plexus3

You can also check the if the license is registered or not by Windows:

rwbactivate.exe -current Plexus3


sudo ./rwbactivate -current Plexus3

You can also see the help menu by ‘-help’ argument.

On the Mac ‘sudo’ is necessary (admin privileges).

The instructions above are for Plexus 3, but the same applies to all products. You just have to change the product name. To get a list of all product names -


rwbactivate.exe -help


./rwbactivate -help
