FX Console Updated to V1.0.3

Good news everybody! Our sweet workflow plug-in, FX Console, has been updated with a BUNCH of bug fixes and a few new enhancements! If you are not using FX Console, check it out! It’s free!

Fixes and Enhancements for V1.0.3:

  • Added option to save images as JPG from menu & Gallery
  • Preferences files are now saved in a user path instead of a common path, meaning different preferences for different users.

  • Fixed issues of preset and effects not being applied if a floating panel had the focus.
  • Fixed screenshot image resolution not being correct in OSX.
  • Fixed crash when rending via command line.
  • Fixed color profile issue when taking a screenshot (mismatch colors).


After Effects Requirements:
Adobe After Effects CC and above (Including CC2014 Sorry no CS6)

Great tutorials last month, but, would be better to see the 'main event' an update to E3D, weave been teased and promised this - obviously we all would PAY for a new update, so i thought it would be in Andrews interest - and we need a way of communicating with him

I've had the same bug for this version and the previous one, where if you're editing a layer name and you activate FX console with the hotkey, then close it— the directional arrow keys no longer function.
- Then if you activate fx console again with the hotkey and close it, then they work again.

Any chance I can get a physical FX Console to put on my desk, plug it in and tell my clients it actually does all my VFX work for me? ...it would make a great scapegoat too. "sorry the FX Console says it can't be done in time"

Hello
Great plugin! But can you fix next moment. I use combination shift+c(as in c4d), and when i type text and want write any word that starts "C" (in text mode) i press shift+c, this call fx consol. Can you fix this moment. Ie when I type text and if I use shift+(any letter) it should not cause the console

Thank you!

not to scare anyone, but is anyone getting a trojan virus warning for their antivirus about this file? i'm sure it isn't, but it's obviously disconcerting. i'm using 360 total security for my antivirus

    It's a custom installer but no funny business! It just copies the plug-in files to the directories to simplify installation.

    Had the same experience. Just downloaded and Windows 10 flagged it as containing a virus and deleted it automatically.
    Here's the message in case that helps troubleshoot the issue: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoDBQID462Axwr5zp1revtVd6VNVtg

I would love the ability to see a list of "recent effects" used along with "presets" in search box.

It also be rad if you had 3D pre-compose, Sure Target, VC Reflect etc.. Built in to FX Console
