April 27th, 2012 No comments

We have tested our plug-ins with AE CS6 and we have determined that they are fully compatible.

Our antialiasing plug-in JaggyBuster makes it efficient and enjoyable to work with the new raytrace engine for those users who do not own an nVidia Quadro card.

February 20th, 2012 No comments

We’re proud to announce the release of DarkCorner, our GPU-based Ambient Occlusion plug-in for Adobe After Effects. The plug-in requires depth channel input and only the Windows platform is supported for the moment (OS X support is likely to follow, depending on demand). To try, you can download the plug-in from the DarkCorner website. If you like it, you can buy the plug-in to receive a license file which will remove the watermark.

DarkCorner is now available for $89.90 (a limited time offer). As a bonus, this offer also includes JaggyBuster, our GPU-based anti-aliasing plug-in. The DarkCorner download also includes the JaggyBuster plug-in (64-bit only, for the moment), which you’re welcome to try.

Users are kindly requested to consult the DarkCorner FAQ and Manual for an explanation of parameters and solutions to some commonly encountered problems, such as automatic GPU driver recovery under Windows.

For more information please check DarkCorner Pages.

How to disable Timeout Detection and Recovery of GPUs through WDDM

February 14th, 2012 No comments

Depending on the parameters and the performance of your GPU, DarkCorner may take a long time to compute AO. Since it’s busy during this time, your video card is unable respond to other requests, and as a result, the operating system incorrectly assumes that the GPU has crashed and automatically attempts to reset the display driver. This is a common problem experienced by other software relying on GPU for computation as well.

More technical details can be found here: Timeout Detection and Recovery of GPUs through WDDM

To work around this issue, please disable the GPU timeout detection by running the reg file or check the following video.
