New Installers!
We've been busy updating our installers over the last few months, and we have added some new features to the installation process itself.

  • Now there is no need to manually visit our website for each product to see if there's an update! The update program works for versions of our installers made since October 5, 2016. After installing the most current version of any of our products, you'll see a program called REVisionCheckUpdates that you can run to check which products need updating. Locations are as follows:
    • Macintosh: /Applications/REVisionEffects
    • Windows: C:/Program Files/REVisionEffects
    • Linux: /usr/local/revision
  • We now have all-in-one Effections installers for our latest versions. No more installing each product individually!
  • Our installers can be run in silent-mode. This is useful for installing on a network of machines. Read more!

Bug Fixes for Mac users
All our GPU-accelerated plug-ins needed updating to fix a bug introduced on Macintosh under MacOS 10.12 (Sierra). This bug most often affects laptop users, but we recommend all users upgrading to the latest versions if they are running MacOS 10.12
