    I'm working on texturing and shading few models using unity student personal edition. Can the unity output file generated from the personal edition be used in a pro or a plus version of the software?

    Yes. Just remember that you're not allowed to use Unity Personal at the same time as Plus/Pro on one project; when you switch, you have to switch properly, both for yourself and for anyone else on your team.

    Thanks for the reply. One more question based on your reply -
    I'm freelancing and working using Unity Personal and the rest of the team are on pro/plus.
    Project wise, these are individual models and I'm texturing these models using Unity Personal. So when I provide these outputs back to my team, would they be able to use it in Pro?

    As long as you don't make more than 100k freelancing I guess it's ok, but I'm not sure.

    My understanding of the license is that you would need to purchase a subscription for the appropriate tier. I've highlighted the text that mentions this in the image in the spoiler below.

    As I understand things it's a bit of a grey area. We don't want to prevent people who are genuine freelancers getting started in the Unity ecosystem from taking on Pro/Plus clients, but at the same time we do not want organisations who really should have everyone on Pro/Plus to cheat their way out of paying for licenses by declaring their staff as contractors.

    Your best bet is probably to email support@unity3d.com and ask them for an official answer.
