I am trying to determine whether or not I can use OptiX free of charge in commercial software. This page for the 4.0 beta download:
from April 2016 states:
“As of version 3.5, OptiX continues to be free to acquire and use within your own company or institution, and to include within applications you distribute but do not publicly sell, but commercial applications (those that are publicly sold as “packaged” software) now require a Commercial License to redistribute OptiX 3.5 and later.”
However this more recent page for OptiX 5.0 download:
from December 2017 states:
“OptiX 5 is free to use within any application, including commercial and educational applications.”
Is the ability to use OptiX in commercial software dependent on the version? Currently we are working with version 3.9.1, due to use of older generation GPU’s.
Any info to clear this up would be greatly appreciated!
