Frequently Asked Questions

No. Unlike the Creative Tools Suite plugin versions, the AURO-3D® Encoder Service does not offer free features and necessitates the "AURO-3D CTSv3 - Auro-Codec" License for its operation. Additional information on the available licenses, rent-to-own plans, and corresponding bundles can be found on the webshop page at: https://www.auro-3d.com/creative/

While activation on iLok Cloud is not supported, it is still perfectly possibly to activate each license on an 2nd or 3rd generation iLok USB key or on your computer.

This is a known issue.

Pro Tools might alert you that no licenses have been found for the following plug-ins:



This is normal behaviour as these tools need dedicated licenses only available after purchasing them.

These tools are not included in the Free license.

Just click on "Quit" on the activation window and let protools move these plugins to the "unused folder".

This is a known issue. We are working on it.

In a meantime, please simply quit the Auro-Settings menu bar application and reopen it as user.

Application path: /Library/Application Support/Auro Technologies/Auro-Settings

This should solve the problem.

This is a know issue.

Please download and install Auro-Matic Pro 2D/3D version 2.8.0 from the archive download page:


This version solves the problem.


If you insert your Ilok key containing the previous Auro-Matic Pro 2D license while your Pro Tools session is already open, please wait about 30 seconds and simply close and reopen the plugin.

The Centre Generator will be activated.

P.S. The Centre Generator does not work on mono tracks format.

This is a know issue.

Please avoid spaces in the export file name. e.g. “My_export" instead of "My export".

Before activating the “Encode” button, simply start playback for 1 second (this helps the program to “get prepared”). Next, activate the “Encode” button and start playback in order to export the encoded mix.

The standalone Encoder requires a previous license that is not included in the new CTSv3 licenses.

We are looking into it for future releases but cannot give any indication on when this will be available.

Nevertheless, its is still perfectly possible to encode mixes via the export options in the Auro-Mixing Engine plug-in using the recent AURO CTSv3 - Auro-Codec Encoder license.
