Software registration

Two specific cases, depending of the purchase: directly with proDAD or reseller (version to be used as standalone for any video editing software excepted Studio plugin), or through Pinnacle Shop (Bonus Content DVD or download - version to be used as Studio plugin, but not as standalone or any other NLE)

With proDAD / dealer:
Purchased from proDAD or any other reseller, Heroglyph is registered directly through proDAD:

  • Secure Shopping on the Web
  • You receive an installation key and a direct link to download Heroglyph.exe (~ 35 MB)
  • Following the installation, enter your key to send appropriate information (if you do not have internet connection on the PC where you install Heroglyph, you can print and fax the form. This is mandatory to unlock the software - you have 30 days to request the unlock).
  • Finally, you receive an executable file and/or licence.mtkey (to be placed in the same directory than Heroglyph).
