File Tools for Snow Leopard?

I just want to know if there are any plans in the near future to fix File tools for Snow leopard?

Got OpenCL working on CPU in QC!

In QC, go into preferences whilst holding down alt, go to system section, tick 'QCDisableCLOpenGLSharing'.

Thats it really, reload QC and compositions that use openCL will now run on the CPU. It appears to work across the system, eg my itunes visualizer that uses 2D Fluid Simulation now works on my mac pro.

This trick can also be used on systems that do have a functioning OpenCL GPU, but you want to see how your CPU performs, because QC will now use your CPU instead (you can check this using the Context patch but it will be pretty obvious from high CPU use.)

Hope this is of use to some of you whilst waiting for Apple to fix bug or convince spouse that new computer is a good idea ;)

Force patch demo composition

Here's a little demo composition I put together that shows how to use the Force patch (new to Snow Leopard.) It's not very well documented, but you should be able to figure it out by looking at it. Plus, it's kind of fun to play with, if nothing else. Enjoy!

Ever since updating to Snow Leopard, Kineme3D is asks for a serial number every time I start the QC editor. Anyone else getting this? Any workaround?
