SynthEyes 2304

  • If your SynthEyes Help/About shows a 'Compiled' date of April 12th, uninstall, redownload, and reinstall. The April 12th build can crash reopening files when a moving object is the Active Tracker Host and a radial-4, radial+squash, or fisheye lens panel was open when the file was saved. That original build has been replaced! The current build shows April 18th and will reopen those files without issue.
  • Time-shifting scenes due to adding or removing frames causes a crash. Keys must be moved manually using the Graph Editor until the next SynthEyes release.
  • Nuke and Fusion scripts updated again June 19th to add more new features; the current exporters generate better pipelines than the original release.
  • After Effects script updated May 12th to fix crash passing workarea information to the FBX exporter for Cinema 4D integration.
  • When exporting to Nuke or Fusion without running the Lens Workflow (ie with a zero-pass workflow), exports to other rendering applications (such as Maya) must include the lens center and required overscan. At present, only the newly released Maya ASCII Updated exporter can do this. Otherwise, 3-D renders will not match. You can eliminate the lens center as an issue by not calculating it, but you may still need to set an appropriate overscan manually. We may update additional exporters to include lens center and overscan, where technology and interest permit. Instead, we always recommend running the Lens Workflow—Lens Workflow was designed exactly to avoid such issues!
  • The updated scripts area has a bugfix for a USDA exporter error when the scene being exported has meshes with rolling front projection texture coordinates.
  • ProRes on M1 Minis under macOS Ventura, SynthEyes 2204 and later: The ProRes movie decoder in Ventura produces an all-black image on M1 Minis. M1 Pro and M1 Max Macbook Pros read ProRes fine in Ventura. No reports of problems on other M1/M2 machines or Intel. Workaround: SynthEyes 2304 on macOS contains a preference named “Force 8bit ProRes,” in the ProRes section for use only on affected Mac Minis. It produces images by forcing 8-bit reads even if you request 16- or 32-bit reads.
