Arnold Watermark in Houdini but not in Maya and 3ds Max

Hi, I am a VFX student of the University of HOWEST and I have a 3 year student Autodesk License. I have an Arnold license which works in Maya and 3ds Max without any watermark.

When I render something out in Houdini I have an Arnold watermark all over my render. Do I need to buy an extra Arnold license for Houdini?

There are no student licenses for Arnold (only licenses for school license servers).

Maya and 3ds Max will render without a watermark, but only when you render in the Maya or 3ds Max user interface.

For anything else (like Houdini), you would need an Arnold license.

Oh, so it wouldn't even work with an Educational License ? (Which I have)

I believe you must have a commercial license for Houdini so that you can run Arnold without watermark
