You may face a situation when, after crashing Premiere Pro, it asks you to activate the premium pack again and you receive such a notification “Warning! Premium functionality is limited. Please activate the AinTransitions Premium Package using the license code“. This problem can occur in one scenario, which is described below and the solution is provided.
What is it and why is it happening?
Premiere Pro loads all settings into memory at startup and stores it until the end of the work in memory. If you change any settings during operation, this is also stored in memory and saved to the main settings file only after completion of work. Therefore, when you activate the plugin, it writes the activation data to the settings, which is written to the physical file only when you close Premiere Pro. Accordingly, if after activation you have never restarted Premiere Pro and Premiere Pro crashes, then all settings from the current session become lost.
What needs to be done?
The solution to the problem proactively or after the problem occurs is the need to restart Premiere Pro after activating the license for the AinTransitions paid pack. This ensures that the activation data will be physically written to the settings file and if a crash occurs in Premiere Pro in the future, this will not affect the operation of the license in any way.
