I've had the first Frame having no effect issue and in my case it did carry through to the render so check carefully if it's happening to you. Having said that, it hasn't happened since the latest Color Finale update.

I get this pop-up error once the clip loads on memory (with Color Finale).
I forgot the error but its basically saying a bad lut blah blah blah.
I have a screen shot at home I will send it to Denver tonight.
I love the plug-in and it gets me out of having to use Resolve.
You get clients that want Resolve but wont pay so cue Color Finale ;)
