To Download and install:
Make sure you have one or more of the following OFX compatible host products on Linux:
Resolve 12.5 or greater Autodesk Flame 2017 or greater Nuke 11 or greater ToonBoom Harmony 12 or greater Fusion Studio 8 or greater
Quit any host applications that may be running.
If you previously installed an older version of Sapphire Plug-ins, the new installation will just replace it. You should not need to uninstall it first.
For Red Hat or similar: become root and use the rpm shell command to download (354MB) and run the installer or download the RPM installer file and install it locally.
For Ubuntu: first make sure you have ’libjpeg62’, and ’libglade2-0’ packages installed.
Then download the DEB installer file (328MB), become root, and type the command:
dpkg -i –force-architecture sapphireofx_2020.530-1.0_amd64.deb for 64 bit
Restart your host product, and the new plug-ins should appear in your effects menu.
To view on-line documentation after you install the software, go to the RedHat or Ubuntu start menu and select GenArts Sapphire OFX -> Sapphire Online Help (HTML) or (PDF). You can also click on the “Help” button while using any plug-in.
