How to access the Settings and License
Once you have your license code, you need to enter it from the "Settings & License" popup :
Premiere Pro : right click on a project item and click "Source Settings…"
Media Encoder : right click on render queue item and click "Source Settings…"
After Effects : right click on a project item -> "Interpret Footage" -> "Main…" and click the "More Options…" button at the bottom
You can also directly access the popup from the MediaCore folder where our Desktop app is located :
On Windows C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore\Autokroma Influx\Influx.exe
On macOS /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore/Autokroma Influx/Influx.app
How to License Influx
In the Settings tab you can paste the license you copied at the first step. If you're on Mac Mac OS you can use the "Paste Clipboard" button because COMMAND+V is not working.
Click the Activate button. Please note you can enter any license for any Autokroma product here
Click OK and restart your Adobe app and you shouldn't be in Trial mode anymore
Please empty your Media Cache
because you have the 500 frames trial image in the cache and silenced audio. You need to go start Premiere without loading any project, go into Premiere Pro's Preferences -> Media Cache -> Delete button on top -> 2nd radio Delete all media cache files from the system.
