Boris FX Optics 2021.2 New Features
A busy cursor is now displayed when processing filters and preferences. Although the busy cursor is displayed, the user interface is still responding.
Layers can now be duplicated by choosing Edit> Duplicate, or right-clicking the layer and selecting Duplicate Layer. The duplicated layer is added above the selected layer and becomes the new active layer.
GPU rendering settings
The GPU rendering setting now also affects the Sapphire filters.
Layer context menu
Previously, only Clear Layers and Clear Filters were shown when you right-click the layer thumbnail, and Clear Mask when you right-click the mask thumbnail. If you now right-click on a layer, except directly above a mask, you will now see both Delete Layer and Delete Filter and Delete Masks (all masks). If you right-click a thumbnail of the mask, you will still see Delete Mask (Single Mask).
"Run in demo mode" has been moved to "Request test" in the license window.
The clickable area for moving a layer can be small depending on the width of the layer menu. You can now click any open space within a layer to drag and move it.
S_LensFlare Preferences> Flare Position
If you moved the flare position in S_LensFlare and then selected a different preset lens flare selection, the lens flare position was reset. Now if you choose a different preset lens effect selection, the flare position will not be reset.
There have also been numerous bug fixes. To view all of the changes in this update, click the Updates tab on the Optics product page.
