Release: Kineme3D, v1.8

Release Type: Production
Version: 1.8
Release Notes

Changes since Kineme3D 1.7

  • New 3D Vertex Structure to Object patch.
  • Update 3D Object Blend to blend UV coordinates in addition to vertices.

Known Issues

  • OS 10.8 introduced changes to the OpenGL calls made in QC's Mesh and Sprite patches. In OS 10.8 a Sprite or Mesh Renderer patch rendered in the same scene and directly before a Kineme3D Object may corrupt the Kineme3D object's triangle buffer.


  • If possible, modify the rendering order such that 3D Object Renderer is before the Sprite patch, or not immediately following it.
  • Use 3D Plane Generator and 3D Object Renderer in lieu of a Sprite patch.

Release: VideoTools, v2.3

Release Type: Production
Version: 2.3
Release Notes

Changes since VideoTools 2.2

  • New Blackmagic Capture patch.
  • Added support for ProRes formats:
    • ProRes 422
    • ProRes 422 (Proxy)
    • ProRes 422 (HQ)
    • ProRes 4444


Known Issues

  • The Blackmagic Capture patch has only been tested with the Blackmagic Decklink card
  • ProRes 4444 format does not support transparency (so videos are fully opaque)
  • H.264 videos stutter when played backwards
  • All VideoTools patches provide only video input, not audio input
  • Firewire cameras only support certain combinations of Color Coding, Resolution, and Framerate. Watch the Error output and Console log when troubleshooting.
  • Due to issues with the underlying frameworks, video device info cannot be queried once a video device is in use. Therefore Video Device Info is only updated once: when the composition is first started.
