Tinderbox 3 Gets OldFilm UpdatePlugin fixes bug on multiprocessor systems
In Tinderbox 3, the OldFilm plugin would crash under certain circumstances when rendering sequences on multiprocessor systems, a problem that the replacement plugin fixes, according to our initial tests. The Foundry says it's still working on a fix for the Lightning plugin, another filter from the collection that exhibited some problems. We'll keep you updated.
Tinderbox 3 itself includes four categories of filters: blurs, effects, generators and tools. Specific plugins include:
- Circular Blur;
- Gradient Blur;
- Bad TV (for creating video signal effects);
- Bump Shade;
- Condensation (for rain effects);
- Diffusion Filter;
- Edge Detect;
- Melt Time (for creating a melting effect that distorts the time of the video);
- MinMax (an additional plugin that requires registration to operate);
- Motion Detect;
- Old Film;
- Roman Mosaic;
- Turner (noise artifact creation);
- Matte Tool.
The OldFilm plugin update is available free from http://www.thefoundry.co.uk. It requires the original Tinderbox 3 CD for verification to complete the installation. You can read our review of Tinderbox 3 here.
