What’s New in Sapphire 11.01 for OFX

  1. Fixed a bug that changed the rendered output of all Glows (e.g. S_Glow, S_GlowEdges, etc.) and Sparkles (both S_Sparkles and S_SparklesColor) between v10 and v11.0 if the user provided a color mask. These effects are now compatible with v10’s output but the output will change relative to v11.0! To get the output from v11.0 back, apply S_Monochrome to the mask before passing it to the effect.
    • Note: This also affects any S_Effect presets made with v11.0 using Glows or Sparkles. Please check your presets for Glows or Sparkles and update with S_Monochrome if needed for the desired behavior.
  2. VignetteMocha mode of S_Vignette now starts with an empty Mocha project. In this case VignetteMocha will use a circular mask until a Mocha Mask is set. This circular mask will not show up in the Mocha UI.
  3. Mocha help link now points to Sapphire Mocha help instead of BCC Mocha help.
  4. Mocha now remembers the previous Open Project and Export Project locations.
  5. Mocha in Sapphire and Mocha in BCC now save preferences and settings separately.
  6. Mocha now tries harder to display frame numbers matching the host timeline.
  7. Updated list of known issues (below).
  8. Minor preset improvements.
