Continuum 2022.5 FCP (v15.5.2) 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.

  • BCC+ Light Leaks and BCC+ Light Leaks Dissolve - param defaults have been tweaked for improved look, but this can cause old projects to open with different values if those params were never changed from their original default in the previous version.
  • BCC+ Directional Blur (+ Dissolve), BCC+ Channel Blur (+Dissolve), and BCC+ Channel Blur YUV now default Premultiply to On which can change the look of old projects when applied to soft alpha channels.


Continuum 2022.5 FCP (v15.5.2) - Known Issues and Limitations:

  • CO-8326 - The FX Editor window does not block access to the host UI while it is up which can lead to stability problems if you make adjustments in the host while the FX Editor is still open.
  • CO-9391 - BCC+ Cross Processing and BCC+ Color Paste clamp in HDR
  • CO-9370 - BCC+ Color Gradient - ND Brightness feature ignores alpha
  • CO-10185 - FX Editor will show placeholder clips in situations where it is unable to fetch the correct image data from the host. This does not affect rendering and is limited to the FX Editor preview. Mostly commonly this occurs for transitions with inputs of mismatched sizes or for transitions where the effect has not rendered in the current session due to host caching from previous sessions. You can work around this by clearing the host cache or tweaking a param to force a render refresh and then relaunch the FX Editor.
  • CO-10213- FX Editor preview can show incorrect colors changing OCIO colorspace multiple times
  • CO-10260 - Edge Mode repeat sometimes shows transparency instead of repeating the last lines of pixel around the edges in FCP
  • CO-10231 - FX Editor shows transparency/black temporarily when scrubbing or widgets in transitions
