Version 4.1.1 | May 15, 2013

  • Fixed a bug where GUI floating licenses were checked out when a render-only floating license should be used first.

Version 4.1 | January 4, 2013

  • Added Tracking Point support
  • Fixed a potential crashing bug when using a foreground separation matte
  • 32-bit linux applications no longer supported

Version 4.0.1 | October 28, 2010

  • Fixes a bug where RSMB crashed on Mac OS X.
  • Fixes a bug where RSMB does not load in Scratch.
  • Version 4.0 - August 31, 2010
  • Adds support for 64-bit on Mac OS X.
  • Adds significant speed improvements over version 3 for Linux 64-bit, Mac OS 32-bit and Windows 32- and 64-bit. We've tested and have seen RSMB Vectors v4 run twice as fast as version 3, and RSMB v4 run 1.5 times faster than version 3. Your calculations times may vary based on the amount of memory you have, number of CPUs, type of processor(s), etc. Note that these timing tests took only calculation time of the plugins into account, and not disk I/O.
  • Linux 32-bit does not have speed improvements and is essentially the same as version 3.
  • Version 3 and Verison 4 can exist at the same time on a particular machine. Version 4 shows up as "RSMB" and "RSMB Vectors" and version 3 shows up as "RSMB3" and "RMSB3 Vectors".
  • To convert a Nuke script to use version 4 without having to replace each node interactively, open your nuke project file in a text editor and globally replace "rsmb3_v3" with "rsmb" and replace "rmsb3_vectors_v3" with "rsmb_vectors".
  • Multi-host application floating licenses available: with multi-host licensing users can float a single license across many applications, including: Nuke, Flame, Fusion, After Effects (Twixtor PRO only), Shake, Softimage, Smoke, Flint, Flare, Inferno, Combustion, Premiere Pro (Twixtor PRO only), and Maya and Max Composite.

Version 3.3.12 | July 6, 2010

  • Fixed issue an interaction with a Nuke project with RSMB (even a simple render of frame) marked the Nuke project as dirty (and needing to be saved).

Version 3.3.11 | February 4, 2010

  • Fixed issue where there could be no motion blur with Track option set to Next Frame.

Version 3.3.10 | January 6, 2010

  • In render-only mode, version 3.3.9 printed out a missing license message when it actually found a license. Version 3.3.10 now correctly prints out a warning message if a valid license has not been retrieved.

Version 3.3.9 | December 30, 2009

  • In render-only mode, the plugin now prints out a warning message if a valid license has not been retrieved.
  • Fixed a potential licensing bug for node-locked licenses in Linux 64-bit version.

Version 3.3.8 | November 12, 2009

  • Adds the ability to set and environment variable RVL_SERVER to specify the floating license server (instead of searching for a settings file on disk) when retrieving floating licenses.

  • Fixed an issue where supplied foreground mattes did not work properly.

  • August 29: fixed a bug in 64-bit Linux version where node-locked licenses were not properly seen.

Version 3.3.5 | December 4, 2008

  • Fixed a bug when using fewer threads than processors, within Nuke (using Nuke's "-m" option)

Version 3.3.4 | September 29, 2008

  • Fixed a problem where RSMB crashes almost immediately when used in Nuke 5.1.

Version 3.3.3 | July 14, 2008

  • Fixed a problem some users where seeing when using floating render-only licenses.

Version 3.3.2 | June 19, 2008

  • 64-bit apps on Windows now supported.
  • Adds support for version 1.1 of the RE:Vision Effects floating license server. NOTE: users who upgrade to version the OFX version of RSMB 3.3.2 MUST upgrade to version 1.1 of the license server, and vice-versa.
  • Fixes a bug that causes the plugin to not properly recognize floating licensing when run within Toxik.
  • Improved support for first and last frame handling.

Version 3.3.1 | May 15, 2008

  • Fixed a bug where new views were being created in the Nuke project if the ReelSmart Motion Blur node was present.
