I won't upgrade for a week or two (finishing a project, and I never upgrade anything during a project, plus I don't want to upgrade right away in case there are any really significant bugs). But I'm awfully curious: how much better is Direct Link? Are project opening times shorter? Are the weird glitches with masks less frequent? What are your impressions generally?
At the moment I cannot get it to start on my Mac. I had an issue where most of the CC 2014 apps would not start or were taking forever to start. I found that you have to change the permissions on the [drive]/Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Adobe/ to be R/W for everyone. This fixed that issue but at the moment Speedgrade starts and I just see the load bar going back an fourth and nothing else.
Performance is much better when opening Speedgrade from Premiere, grading and bouncing back to Premiere - at least on the Mac.
Also playback performance with Looks in Premiere is much much better. But we do have a problem when turning on GPU acceleration (both Cuda and OpenGL) with a GTX680 in a MacPro 2009 - performance is much worse with GPU acceleration enabled!
