An activation code is used only once, to register your software on our website and to generate your license key used for all future activations. Activation codes are printed on the back of the HUE Book of Animation as shown here.
HUE Animation activation codes always start with ‘HUE’, like this: HUE1234567890
Activation codes do not use the letter ‘o’, so any ‘o’s in your code should be entered as zeroes (‘0’).
Customers who placed software-only or bulk license orders might receive a license key instead of going through the extra registration stage above. If so, your software will have been registered automatically on our website and your license keys will be displayed here.
HUE Animation license keys are longer, and look like this: 123456-123456-1234-1234567890
You will have been sent a confirmation email with your activation details and account password during the original registration. This can sometimes be found in a Spam or Junk Mail folder.
Registering your software through the HUE website
Note: For schools, we recommend using a central email address rather than a specific teacher’s account to make sure that the license details remain easily accessible in future.
It is best to always download the latest version from the website rather than installing the version that you may have on a CD, as Windows/Mac system updates are released on a regular basis.
Double click on the downloaded file to launch the software installer and install HUE Animation on your computer.
…with an Activation Code.
Choose the Activate with an activation code option for first time activations. An account will be automatically created on our website, registering your activation code to the email address that you choose during activation. You will receive a confirmation email with your license key, which you will need to use for any further activations.
…with a License Key.
Choose the Activate with a license key option if you have already registered your activation code, or if you have purchased a software-only license online.
…with an Offline Key.
If the computer you’re using has no Internet access, you may need to register your activation code through our website to obtain your license key. A full step-by-step tutorial can be found here.
If you have registered your activation code before but you don’t know your license key or how to download the latest version of the software, please note that all of your software updates and license details are always stored on your online HUE account. If you have forgotten your login details, you can request a password reset or lost license reminder.
If you’re having any other trouble accessing your software, please contact us with all of the relevant details (order number, activation details, error message etc.) and we’ll be able to help.
