Effects Suite 10.0.1 Goes Live!
Over the last year, we’ve been working on streamlining the entire “purchase to publishing” process at Red Giant – one of the largest behind the scenes activities has been re-releasing all of our suites so you only need to deal with a single installer and a single serial number. It makes installing all of your Red Giant products and getting to use them in your actual day to day work a much easier experience. We’ve finally done it – the remaining product suite now has it’s own single suite installer – say hello to Effects Suite 10.0.1.
While getting this together, we also put together maintenance releases to take care of a number of issues in the products included in the suite. Take a look at all the major updates (there were numerous tweaks made under the hood to clean up all the plugins; I’ll just list the highlights here):
Effects Suite 10.0.1:
- Single installer for the suite, supports a single serial for Suite customers.
- Proper support for Adobe After Effects CS5.5 installations.
- Numerous installer fixes incorporated from all of the Effects Suite products.
- Several issues fixed with the registration of serial numbers.
Knoll Light Factory 2.7.2:
- Windows only: Fixed a crash when “region of interest” tool is used in conjunction with KLF in After Effects (previously fixed for OSX in KLF 2.7.1).
- Windows only: Fixed an issue when using our volume licensing.
- Fixed a problem with Knoll Spectacular that causes After Effects to crash is the scale is set to zero.
- Hitting return or enter in the Lens Designer was not submitting changes; this is now fixed.
- The option to duplicate a light element was missing in After Effects CS5/5.5; this option is now available.
You can get all of our latest installers on our Product Downloads page here.
A “PS” from the Maintenance Release blog post guy:
As this is probably about my 10th blog post, I thought it might be time to say a brief hello and not hide behind the somewhat-weird looking “acheyne” moniker that my posts show up here as. In the real world, I’m Andrew Cheyne, Red Giant’s Engineering Manager. I oversee everything at Red Giant that has to do with getting our products built and released to the customer – design, implementation, builds, installers, bug fixes, and Quality Assurance. I have a great team that gets the real work done in making these products come together, but it’s generally my responsibility to ensure we’re getting you the products you need and want and making sure they work.
Oh, and sorry for the accent; I know Canada-ese can be tough to understand some days.
Note from the Editor: I fixed it so that Andrew Cheyne’s blog identity now shows up as his name instead of acheyene. You know, Andrew, you could’ve just asked. You didn’t need to release a single suite installer to get me to do that…
