I bought the plugin the other day! I´ve activated the main MD2 in offline, but was running the animation trial online. Even though I´ve now bought it I notice I don´t have the animation option even in online version! Correct me if I´m wrong but there seems to be no software to install for the animation plugin?
I suppose I will have to email Clo and ask the question, I had great problems running on the 32 bit system, much prefer x64.
Thanks for the advice so far. ...
Hi Adam :-),
Indeed, there is no complementary sofware to install for the activation of the animation plugin.
Here is the way I got the perpetual license key :
1) 18-Aug : My first mail to the Sales Department :
Dear Marvelous Designer Team,
It´s a long time ago that I´m ready to purchase the animation editor for the personal license.
I would like to purchase it before the trial ends.
But I´m still waiting for the offline activation.
Is there a chance that you could provide this offline activation for this plugin in a near future ?
Thank you for your reply.
Have a nice day :-)
2) 19-Aug : Reply from the Sales Department :
Yes, we provide an offline authentication way though it requires some manual works.
Please follow the instruction below.
1) Run regedit.exe in Windows.
2) Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Marvelous Designer 2\Path
3) Add string value (Name = PI_ANI_EDITOR, Data = "Key" we will send you )
4) Run Marvelous Designer
And here is the animation editor key which enables you to use it by Aug, 25.
(here was the very very very long key :-) ... I saved it in a text box, to paste it in the new string value of the Windows Registry)
Check this works well. Then if you purchase it, we will send you the perpetual license key.

3) my last mail on 24-Aug-2011 :
Dear Marvelous Team,
Please can you send me the perpetual license key for the animation plugin (activation offline) ?
Thank you. :-)
(I joined a copy of the automatic mail received after my purchase of the animation plugin)
4) Their reply on 25-Aug-2011 :
Thank you for your purchase on Animation Editor.
Here is a key. (long value too included in the mail)
- MarvelousDesigner Team
As you can see, the assistance received from Marvelous Designer Team is fast and efficient.
Important to know about the setting of the key value in the Windows Registry :
I first created the new Registry values during the trial period as indicated in the first mail received from MD Team.
When I received the perpetual license key, I edited the Windows Registry to erase the previous data in
the string value "PI_ANI_EDITOR".
I tried to paste the new data in that string, but it was impossible !
Then I ran Marvelous Designer and I saw that the buttons relative to the Animation Plugin were no more active.
I reopened the Windows Registry and I could see that the string value "PI_ANI_EDITOR" had disappeared.
I created it again and I could finally paste the perpetual license key as data of that string.
I ran again Marvelous Designer and this time, the Animation Plugin was active thanks to the perpetual license key
installed in the Windows Registry.
A long comment, but it´s easier in the practice.
