Hello dear MEP User,
our developers have provided a new update for you:
Here are some new features you can expect:
- modern color picker in text editor
- Effect masks are now available as layer masks under Templates
- improved performance of the OFX interface
- In-App-Store: Purchase of single items
After installing the patch, the following problem may occur:
Problems starting/stopping Movie Edit Pro - Displaying templates and audio:
This is caused by a restructuring of the internal database in which the templates, audio content and store items are held. The restructuring was necessary to ensure better performance during project work.
The database is rebuilt the first time the program is launched after patch installation. This may take some time. On our test systems, the process was completed in less than 5 minutes. When Movie Edit Pro is closed, the new database is finally written and kept for the next sessions. This may take some time the first time. If this process is interrupted (e.g. by "shooting" the task in the Control Panel), the writing process cannot be completed correctly and the game starts over again the next time Movie Edit Pro is started, or in the worst case the database may be in an undefined state.
Then only the following procedure will help:
- After program start help -> delete local store contents
- Restart the program, it may take a while until the contents are displayed again. (Please wait)
- After restarting the program, some articles may be displayed incorrectly. In this case the program must be restarted manually (close and restart manually).
- IMPORTANT: the program must close itself, it must not be closed via the task manager. After restarting the program everything should be displayed correctly and the contents should be loaded faster.
Best regards and have fun with your projects.
PS: In general, you should avoid "shooting down" Movie Edit Pro via the task manager, since not only the database for the media pool is written, but also other important configuration files. This can lead to undefined program states, up to the loss of finished work. If the program is still visible in the task manager after exiting, it will normally still work.
Killing the Movie Edit Pro process via the task manager should only be used in extreme emergencies.
