Registering and Activating Templater

Immediately after installing Templater, you can work in trial mode before deciding to purchase a license for use. In trial mode, layers with the Templater Settings effect applied will show a superimposed watermark in their containing compositions. Trial mode allows you to preview and render up to six rows from a data source and disables the automatic replication of compositions. You can shut down the Templater panel and restart it to enable previewing and rendering of up to six additional rows.

NOTE  For information about activating Templater through the command line interface, see Activating Licensing for Templater through the Command Line Interface.
