Continuum 2019.0.1 v12.0.1 for FxPlug Compatibility Notes:

While in general your previously saved projects should render identically in the newer version, bug fixes and quality improvements can sometimes change the look of older projects. While every effort is made to ensure project compatibility, the following notable areas may see some change to the look of previously saved projects.

  • Due to host-side threading changes the origional Continuum motion tracker was disabled in newer versions. You should be able to open old projects that used the tracker, but it is not possible to perform new motion tracking analysis in FxPlug hosts at this time.
  • The 3D Objects category of filters was deprecated back in Continuum 11. Old projects which used 3D Objects filters will still open normally, but these filters will no longer appear in the effect menus. Please contact customer support if this is a concern.
  • OpenGL blur quality enhancements may slightly change perceived blur amount in some filter elements.
  • Prism - Fixes to alpha / premultiplication handling will produce different results in intermediate alpha regions.


Continuum 2019.0.1 for FxPlug 12.0.1 - Known Issues and Limitations:

  • Continuum 2019 for FxPlug does not include support for mocha PixelChooser tracking/masking, Primatte Studio, or Particle Illusion at this time.
  • In order to comply with host multi-threading requirements BCC Match Grain does not currently support using the Lock Sample checkbox to lock in new grain samples. You can still use Match Grain to render grain matched from an alternate clip by leaving the Lock Sample checkbox disabled, but it is not possible to use the Lock Sample checkbox to store new grain profiles permanently in grain files or presets. However, loading previously saved grain profiles or Match Grain presets will continue to work as before. [2858]
