Known Issues

  • If the Preset Browser is launched multiple times in rapid succession inside the Sapphire Effect Builder, selection may not work in the preset browser. If this happens close the Preset Browser and re-open it.

  • Mocha: The command-q shortcut key doesn't immediately respond when trying to close Mocha. If the key is held down for 1-2 seconds, it will correctly close Mocha.

  • Mocha: The Mocha UI does not correctly locate the default OCIO config file shipped with Sapphire. To use the default OCIO config file shipped with Sapphire, use the OCIO environment variable to locate said the config file.

  • Resolve: Point widgets may respond slowly in Premiere after a Mocha point track has been created.

  • Flame: Effects with an internal animation such as MuzzleFlash of Zap may not animate correctly on a constant node. The workaround is to generate a constant clip.
