Greetings. Compositor 2.3, a FutureBasic 3 application has been released. I know, Saturday not optimal, but neither is letting a bad bug linger longer than necessary. :) This version represents a major optimization and bug fix overhaul, along with a bigtime HIG Window treatment in position memory, and ESC for Cancel, and Return/Enter key for apply/ok, whatever Depts. As in all. (Alerts excepted in places for position) That'sa lotta windows. :) Lotta filter dialogs in this puppy. Was a major all nighter and more, and it is much nicer to use now. Love finding those windows where I left them. All of them. New in v2.3 is a 2x to 16x speedup in all blur based operations (thanks RP*) , and a bug fix for a major problem introduced in v2.2 with flips in replay mode. Cursors were reworked, and are almost context perfect all the time now (I should say not to be safe, but...) Live preview for Fade Last is in there now, and an option for Fore-Back color init versus plain Neutral for Replace Color. There are some great new action files. (High Pass Hot 1 & 2, Neonics 1 & 2, Strangeness 1 & 2, etc) and a clipboard copy issue with undo in replay now fixed should allow for near identical results for nearly all allowable operations now. You have to try out these actions files on a nice human based image: " High Pass Hot" followed by "Neonics"...Whoa! Use the Actions Palette. It's pretty too.
