Just like you, Red Giant is excited about the release of OS X Lion. These are crucial platforms for your work and Apple is an important partner for Red Giant.
It is a priority for us to ensure that our customers can run Red Giant products on the latest software. We continue to work closely with Apple to make sure our products run well with theirs.
The good news is that we have been able to test our products with OS X Lion and most of our results have been great. We are happy to report that all of our products work perfectly between Lion and Adobe host applications. With FCP, there are a few issues that have come up, primarily with some of the products in our Magic Bullet Suite (read below).
If you are experiencing any technical problems with our software, and you don’t see the issue already listed below, please contact Red Giant Support. We want to get our products working perfectly in Lion, and your reports are invaluable in helping us continue to make our products high quality and bug free.
Magic Bullet Suite
We have discovered Lion issues in Magic Bullet Suite, primarily with Looks 2 and Colorista II. Apple is aware of the issues and will address them in a future update.Unfortunately, the issues are related to essential functions in OS X Lion that cause problems with saving Looks 2 and Colorista II projects in FCP. Please be assured that we are working closely with Apple to bring resolution to this issue. More details are in this blog post.
In Lion and FCP, Primatte 5 does not correctly update its view once a key is made. Again, Apple is aware of the issue and will address it in a future update. All other Keying Suite products have not shown any issues with Lion so far, but we are still testing these products to guarantee their performance.
Our testing to date and feedback from customers show that all Trapcode Suite products work in OS X Lion across all host apps.
In Lion and FCP, Knoll Light Factory cannot save and update its lens flare data. Oh yes… Apple is aware of this issue and will address it in a future update. Our testing to date and feedback from customers show that all other Effects Suite products work in OS X Lion across all host apps.
