Knoll Lens flare issues
on Jan 17, 2011 at 3:28:52 pm

I have a couple of issues with the new CS5 version of Knoll lens flares...wondering if you guys encountered these:

1) Projects created that contain Knoll effect crash when opened on another machine

2) if Knoll is applied, multi-processing is disabled

Knoll lens flare 2.7
AE CS5 10.0.1.19
OS X 10.6.5 2 x 2.4 quad core
16 GB

Regards,
dave

[dave irion] "1) Projects created that contain Knoll effect crash when opened on another machine"

Does this other machine also have Knoll Lens Flares installed?

Yup -- there are some effects that don't work with multiprocessing. Having multiprocessing involuntarily disabled is a lot better than getting a Mac's Spinning Beach Ball of Death.

yes, we've had projects created in-house, and also client projects which would crash when opened. They opened just fine on the machine that created them, however.

I haven't heard anything about AE/Knoll projects being incompatible between machines. The only thing I could find was this on the Red Giant Web site:

"Knoll Light Factory 2.6 (or later) will not be able to open projects that were created with Knoll Light Factory 2.5 or earlier. This because the plug-in has been updated from its old AE plug-in architecture to an FxPlug plug-in architecture."


Does this ring any bells?

that could very well be it...I'll look into the version number of the offending plugin.

Thanks!
