Configuring OverScene

1 / Find Your License Key

Check your inbox for an email titled Your OverScene License Keys — make sure to look in your spam folder if you don't see it.

If you still can't find it, drop the recovery email you used when you bought the license at license recovery and we'll resend you the details. Of course if you're still having trouble, get in touch via Discord or email.

Once you have your License Key at hand, open OverScene and press the pink ACTIVATE LICENSE button.

💡 Don't have a license key?

If you need to, you can buy a license.
