Notes on Yosemite Compatibility

Apple recently released Yosemite, Mac OS X 10.10. This is an exciting update with lots of great new features.

We’ve been testing with Yosemite for months, and are happy to say that all of the Divergent Media apps – ClipWrap, EditReady, ScopeBox and Phosphor work great. Just be sure you’re running the most recent version of each – if you’re not sure, select “check for updates” from the application’s menu bar.

There’s one, easily solvable issue we’ve seen on a few Macs that have been updated to Yosemite. The Yosemite installer sometimes removes a few files from the Library folder, including some files that are important for video production.

Apple has an installer to help with reinstalling most of these files – if you’ve got Final Cut Pro on your system, we recommend you download and run Apple’s ProApps Codec Package.

In addition, if you’re using the ScopeLink plugins with ScopeBox, you may find that Final Cut Pro X can no longer see the ScopeLink plugin. To fix it, you’ll just need to run the ScopeLink installer again. Just download a fresh copy and run it.

If you run into any issues, just let us know.
