FEC AVX 7.0.0 Bug Fixes - (Summary of major fixes since FEC 6):

  • RT versions of the filters were missing in the effect UI.
  • Vector Blur used an edge treatment mechanism that allowed unexpected transparency to creep in around the edges of the image.
  • Using the integrated Beat Reactor to control the vertical blur amount in FEC Blur did not generate the proper vertical blur amounts.
  • On Mac OS, FEC filters could not open presets that used names with non-ASCII text characters, and saving a preset named with non-ASCII characters resulted in a file with unexpected garbage characters in the name.
  • On Mac OS, loading Pixel Chooser subpresets did not update the values of the pixel chooser parameters.
  • Light Wipe generated artifacts for moderately high values of Intensity.
  • The Beat Reactor did not properly drive the threshold parameters in ThresholdRGB.
  • Mr. Mercury did not properly adjust for non-square pixel aspect ratios.
  • The Mr. Mercury emitter location was shifted by half the image dimension away from the correct point when using the Motion tracker to define the position.
  • When the density parameter was low in Glue Gun (i.e when distinct blobs were visible) the blobs were rendered in the wrong location when field rendering leading to potentially jittery playback.
  • The Motion Tracker was removed from all FEC transitions.
  • FEC Sphere showed aliasing artifacts at some settings.
  • Bulge showed sporadic instability when the height parameter was less than 0.
  • 24bit AIF files were not properly handled by the Beat Reactor.
  • In some filters the Compare Mode did not preview correctly when using the Pixel Chooser.
  • Empty parameter groups unexpectedly opened/closed when changing checkboxes or menus.
  • When selecting a single channel in the integrated Beat Reactor the audio levels would sometimes flicker unexpectedly.
