You've decided to try using a StratusCore Virtual Workstation, now what?
There are multiple ways to test a Virtual Workstation. One great way is to leverage your existing Autodesk or Adobe CC software sign-in to get the best Virtual Workstation test experience.
No matter which software you choose, the Virtual Workstation will start pre-configured with that software package. No need for you to install anything.
* Please Note: Running a trial of Virtual Workstation with Cinema 4D, Adobe CC, Maya or 3DS-Max REQUIRES you to have a valid license to use that software. (either a trial login or an account login)
If you do not have a valid login or license, you can still use Blender, which is free.
To log in and try a StratusCore Virtual Workstation, you must have Trial Days remaining, and Trial Hours allocated. Starting a free software trial will allocate trial hours. For this tutorial, we will start a free trial and I will assume you have already signed up for a free account on StratusCore.com
After logging in, you will immediately be able to identify all of your resources. As shown above, there are days remaining on my trial, but no workstation hours. Starting a free software trial will allocate trial workstation hours.
Click on "Try Software for free" to load the "Try Software on our Virtual Workstation" page
"Try Software on our Virtual Workstation" page will load. If there is an application that your team would like to try but its not listed, please let us know. We may be able to help. Please be advised that cloud render trials are not Virtual Workstation trials.
Find the software you'd like to try and click on the box. An overview of the type of trial will load. Then you can click [Start Trial]
After you click on [Start Trial], notice that the green "Success!" box appears. Also, please make sure you are allocated Virtual Workstation trial hours.
Users can only have 1 active free trial open at a time.
You can now log onto a StratusCore Virtual Workstation!
