    I can't find anywhere what exactly the differences are between indie and pro version. No render texture on the indie version is one I know. What features exactly are left out with this? What other differences are there?

    What exactly are the licenses for each version?

    The list of differences is on the download page.
    But there are some poinrts that need to be explained what it means:

    "Soft Shadows" -> Indie has no dynamic shadow beside blob shadows
    "Streaming Video support" -> Indie has no video support
    "windows deployment"-> Indie is not able to generate Windows Standalones. Webplayer on Windows will have a watermark (the same you get when you create a webplayer with the demo)

    Um, I guess that was a little typo: Indie is NOT able to generate Windows Standalones. Or: "Only PRO is able to generate Windows Standalones" ;-)

    doh ... first had it the other way round "from the perspective of pro" but that somehow didn't make too much sense when reading so I changed it the way its on the page and forgot the not there ... sorry
