simplify – automate – accelerate

All of our tools aim to simplify, automate and accelerate your every day's work. Think smart – Why always setting up a lot of unnecessary steps when there can be a one button click solution? Many artists often don't want to struggle with scripting, thankfully many tasks can be simplified and automated so you as an artist don't need to use any scripting at all. Automation is something that can be well handled by your computer which results in not doing repetitive tasks by yourself. This will accelerate your work, will lead in better results and you will have more time to concentrate on other stuff.

No internet connection required

All of our tools work online and offline. There is no internet connection required. So no matter your online setup, you are good to go.

License models

We offer 4 different licenses models so you can choose what fits best to your needs - node locked licenses, site licenses, cragl studio single and cragl studio multi.

On the one hand, we offer 2 licenses that can be used on one cragl tool - node locked licenses to be node locked on one machine (transfer to another machine at any time) and site licenses to be used on an infinite amount of machines.

On the other hand, we offer 2 annual subscription license models called 'cragl studio single' and 'cragl studio multi' that can be used to access all cragl tools. While a 'cragl studio single' license gives you access to all of our tools on one machine (transfer to another machine at any time), you can use 'cragl studio multi' on an infinite amount of machines. So it behaves like a site license for all tools.
