Current known issues

VR

- VR entails on additional render overhead

- This may result in a poor performance

 

Upgrading 32-bit to 64-bit Sockpuppet shows

- There may be issues upgrading Sockpupper projects from 32-bit to 64-bit in 14.4.x builds. If your project falls into this category, please contact support@disguise.one who can arrange a project upgrade for you.

 

Permissions error after installing

- On a small number of machines, a python-based permissions error will prevent software from starting.

- This issue can be solved by restarting Windows

 

Potential UI performance regression with long and busy timelines

- With either long or busy timelines containing e.g. a plethora of notes/cues, the UI may suffer a degradation in performance

- Minimising the timeline negates this

 

Slideshows transition time

- The transition time between slides in slideshows is currently broken

- The fix for this makes fundamental changes to timeline operations, so will take a while to work its way into future releases


 

N.B. these are merely a sample of the fixes that have been implemented. A full changelog will be made available in the coming days

Please contact support@disguise.one for feedback and issues.
