See this video example as well as the run through below.
Your computer must be connected to the Internet to Activate the Software.
You have installed the latest version of Capture One from your install discs or you've downloaded the latest version from our website. Now you must activate the software.
Upon launching of Capture One you will be greated with a four mode option dialouge.
(on a PC the dialouge box will look slightly different but the steps are the same)
Please Select Mode
You will then need to choose to Try, Buy, Or Activate. Choose Activate.
Enter your 16 character Product Key you received with your purchase of Capture One. It will automatically determine whether your key is for Pro or Pro for Sony.
Then enter the email address and profile information that you want this key to be registered under. You can use your existing Phase One Profile or create a new one.
[Please note: If you are a studio, use a generic studio email address so that you will not lose your key.]
Hit Activate and you're ready to start using Capture One.
If you are trying to switch from your 30 day free trial to an activated version:
On a Mac : simply go to Capture One > License and Activate
On PC: Help > License Information and Activate
