Yes. Production COLLECTIVE customers with valid maintenance can get their hands on NUKE STUDIO, this upgrade requires you to exchange the HIERO within your Production COLLECTIVE for a NUKE STUDIO.

The correct licenses will then be issued to you through our sales admin team.

You will not be forced to lose your HIERO, however getting your hands on NUKE STUDIO as part of the free Production COLLECTIVE upgrade is dependant on accepting these terms. If you wish to continue using HIERO you can choose not to request the NUKE STUDIO upgrade and continue using your existing Production COLLECTIVE license.
