6.0.26754
  • Minor fix for Auto-Updates
November 22, 2018
6.0.26752
  • Major updates to Background Removal (BR)
    • Added speck removal to remove small non-transparent regions. This works in conjunction with hole filling.
    • Added support for region growing or contiguous constraint. This option works similarly to Photoshop's, when clicked, only the regions that have similar errors and are connected to the location of the click coordinates, will be removed. This applies to both types of BR: solid color and background image.
    • Added support for mask growing. This is very important in removing the halo effect seen when a light background is removed and replaced by a dark background or the other way around. This feature applies to all BR tools.
    • To make things more intuitive and clearer, we have moved solid BR to a different tool, named magic wand. This tool now behaves similar to Photoshop's magic want tool.
    • BR now supports RGBA, not just RGB, input images.
    • BR can now be applied multiple times to same image, with the option of keeping the BR dialog opened as multiple BRs are applied sequentially.
    • Added "Magic wand" as a tool that allows you to more easily click and remove backgrounds in multiple steps. Somewhat similar to what Photoshop has, but not quite the same.
  • Added pointer / select tool as a way to escape from other tools, such as lasso.
  • Added shortcut M for Magic Wand and V for Select Tool
  • Remember last used Lasso option
  • Added floats to custom angles and nudge spin boxes, to allow non-integer rotation angles. This increases accuracy and precision when using high counts stepper tables, such as the Platinum series. There was a bug where we couldn't shoot 1000 images per rotation, for tables that support over 1000 steps per revolution. This has now been fixed.
  • Changed center points of Hue, Contrast, Brightness, Saturation to be values of 0
  • First version of x64 on Windows (Mac was always x64)
  • Add maintenance agreement expiration Information in About
  • Implemented drop-down Help Menu with links to KB articles
  • Added right click apply for lasso select
  • Added 'Check for updates' option in About menu
  • Added support for setting the output background color for transform algorithms, which include: de-wobbler, add canvas and rotation.
  • Added support for arbitrary alpha transparency when applying a lasso cut.
  • Added arbitrary rotation (i.e. non-90-degree multiples).
  • Improved overall support of RGBA image processing in all pipelines.
  • Improved image processing pipeline speed by 20%-30%. Memory usage in the processing pipeline now uses ping-pong memory to maximize memory reuse and to minimize memory creation and destruction.
  • Added new Captureless license type. This works in conjunction with the 360 View Creator to allow image editing when creating 360 views.
  • Added support for exporting images from ShutterStream directly to the 360 View Creator.
  • Upgraded to latest CanonSDK (3.9.0) with added support for the following cameras:
    • EOS M50 / EOS 2000D / EOS 4000D / EOS M100 are supported.
    • EOS M50 is the first EOS Mirrorless Camera to support remote shooting function.
    • EOS R series are supported
  • Upgraded Nikon SDK to their latest version: 2018-Oct-23, with support for mirrorless Nikon Z7 camera
  • 5.1.25715 version to test Carousel plugin, 5.1.25652 release of x64 version to test potential fix for Nikon D850
