    Upgraded another computer today.  Discovered that there is a werid issue with 8.5.3 and AJA's drivers (we have an ioXT).  It seems to lock into a SD 29.97 output when I'm in a 1920x1080 23.98p project.  AJA is looking into it.

    Re: 8.5.3 Sooo...

    A few things apparently Broken.

    Foreground level of 3D warp has changed radically, ie previous foreground 30 equates to new value approx 8.

    3D warp shadow density increased to double previous density

     

    Matrix wipe effects have stopped working as wipe transitions when applied to a outer nested 3d warp, i.e. they do not bring the image on. They show only the matrix wipe border with no fill. 

    On a single 3d warp the matrix wipe border does not display, only the fill.

    I’m using the speckle effect with border to transition between 2 segments which have 2 x 3d warps applied (the outer warp is an overall resize, the inner warp is a zoom within, matrix wipe applied to the transition on the outer warps)

     

    Title tool continues to fail to preview kerning or position of text accurately, i.e. when a title is saved, the layout and position of text cannot be predicted, meaning a huge waste of time re-editing the title nudging elements kerning and spacing until the desired result is achieved. This has been a problem since around version 6 I think. Incredibly stupid for a basic but essential tool.

    DO NOT tell me to use Marquee or Blue Titler which are ponderous and slow. Or photoshop. Just make the Title tool WORK please.

     

    Keyframe behaviour of effects editor has changed, with paint effect for example previously selecting a keyframe and copying and pasting to a new keyframe always worked, now unless you select the effect timeline background to highlight it first, you paste another object, not another keyframe. You also have to deselect your object in order to use frame forward / reverse to navigate the effect timeline, otherwise you move the object, which would be a useful feature if mapped to the up down left right keys, not the frame forward / reverse keys

    Can you clarify something in that statement?  Do you mean if you open a sequence from a version prior to 8.5.3 that settings in 3D Warp now seem to give a different result?

    Or is it only newly created effects that seem to be different looking that you expect?

    If it is the first, I am heistant to open any old project in 8.5.3.

    Re: 8.5.3 Sooo...

    I installed 8.5.x for a couple of days and I had very strange issues.

    - Audio/video glitches/stutter on my external monitor (maybe due to my outdated system ? decklink drivers ?)

    - Applying an audio mix on an audio track made the track offsync or appear offsync.

     

    When I reverted back to 8.4.x some LUT effects that were in my timeline were then giving me different results. The look was less contrasty.
