- What happens after the 30 day evaluation period expires?
Our plug-in products change to "watermarked" mode, with
plug-in features disabled and a
large red cross added to the image. This is to ensure that projects using
the plug-ins are still valid, and the watermark can be removed by simply
registering the plug-in.
- Do you plan Mac OS X versions?
Our products are now ported to After Effects for Mac OS X.
There are a number of future products that will probably remain Windows only, due
to the use of 3rd party software for Windows.
- What platform versions do you support?
We build on Windows XP (SP2) and Windows 7, and test on XP and Windows 7. Mac OS X products
are tested on 10.3.9 and 10.4.x (ppc) and 10.6.x (i386/x64).
- Do your products support 16bit After Effects projects?
All ObviousFX plug-ins will always be 16bit aware. Some plug-ins only
support 16bit projects when registered.
- Do your products support 32bit After Effects projects?
32bit per channel projects (After Effects 7.0 and later)
can use plug-in, but with reduced color precision. Full 32bit support will
be added in future to our products.
- What is the difference between evaluation and registered versions?
When a product is registered, you will receive a non expiring serial
number. The full versions
have "registration bonuses", such as 16bit project support, alpha
channel support, or multiprocessor support.
- Do your products take advantage of multiple CPU systems?
We use After Effects's built-in multiple CPU support where possible in our
- What is your product version numbering scheme?
We use major.minor.release versioning, so a product with version v1.1.3
is a "1.1" release, and the 3rd release of that product. For
example, products can jump from v1.0.2 to v1.1.3.
