CoGe and OSX 10.10 Yosemite

Posted on: October 17th, 2014 by .lov.

OSX 10.10 Yosemite is out, and CoGe is compatible with it from version 1.5.2.2. Apparently 10.10 fixes the well-known OpenCL Core Image memory leak too, which has been introduced on 10.9.

You can find more information about CoGe and 10.10 Yosemite: Forum.

Unfortunately there is a code signing issue with CoGe 1.5.2.2 on both 10.9.5 and 10.10, which will be fixed in the upcoming CoGe 1.6 update, but in the meantime, here you can find the workaround: Wiki.

CoGe 1.5.2 released – enhanced performance!

Posted on: June 17th, 2014 by .lov.

We are really happy to announce the newest update, CoGe 1.5.2. This update focusing on performance improvements by adding a native (not Quartz Composer based) Quicktime movie player module and rendering pipeline optimisations, and also focusing on stability – since there is a well-known issue with recent graphics drivers and Core Image on OSX 10.9 Mavericks, we decided to replace the Core Image parts of the application. This may results better stability with recent machines using 10.9, but unfortunately it still not the cure for the graphics driver related problems. As always, please get in touch if you experience any problems with CoGe.

The rendering pipeline optimisations affects EffectChains, SyphonSources, VideoInputs and the LayerGroups as well. Core Image filters may rendering even faster, but be careful using those effects on 10.9!

So, here comes the list of the most important additions:

Posted on: May 7th, 2014 by .lov.

freeframeWe are proud to announce that CoGe reached an other milestone, version 1.5.1 today. Clearly the best new feature added is the support for FreeFrame and FreeFrameGL effects  – in addition to the already available Core Image and Quartz Composer based effects. An other interesting feature is the new Collect and Save Files item in the File menu, which helps you to easily moving projects between computers.

Of course, there are fixes as well, so the update is recommended for all users. Grab it from the auto-updater, or from the website.
