Join Patrick Inhofer for an in-depth discussion in this video What's new in 7.2, part of Learning Speedgrade CC 2014.
In this movie, I'd like to take a moment to talk about the new SpeedGrade CC 7.2 update. This update has a bunch of bug fixes. These things run anywhere from some problems with flickering on output monitors, some key framing problems, some problems when masking. It also includes brand new codec support for Sony RAW for those you who have been waiting for that, and what I suggest you do, because it's about a dozen different small fixes, I'd go ahead and Goodle SpeedGrade 7.2 Update Release Notes.
Now, the big thing on this release is Direct Link on the Mac. It now works, mostly. And why do I say mostly, because OpenCL is now supported on your GPU card. So, the problem before was direct link on a Mac, instead of doing all of this processing on your graphics card, it was doing it in the host computer. Well, OpenCL is now supported on both the Mac and PC, and it's through this OpenCL support that Direct Link on the Mac is now working.
The reason I say mostly is because CUDA for the Mac, not yet supported. You're not going to see the kind of responsiveness you would expect if you were working in a native .ircp SpeedGrade project. I mean, you're still going to be faster in that native project if you're on an Nvidia card because Nvidia supports CUDA and SpeedGrade has very much been tuned towards CUDA. Also remember that you know, the beefier the card, whether you're on OpenCL or using CUDA, no matter what, the beefier the card, the faster the card, the more VRAM you have, the more responsive SpeedGrade will be.
So this isn't just purely an OpenCL and CUDA thing, it's also, you know, how beefy is your graphics card? Direct Link on a Mac? If you're using Direct Link on a Mac, you need to update to 7.2. Do not sit on 7.1. Alright, so that's my big take away from this SpeedGrade CC 7.2 update.

Q: Why am I getting the 'File Not Supported' error when reconnecting to the source files in Premiere Pro?
A: If you get the 'File Not Supported' error when reconnecting to the source files in Premiere Pro - this is a problem with the reconnect dialog in
1. Open the Premiere Pro project in Premiere.2. During the reconnect dialog click Locate and navigate to Exercise files > Media and then to the sub-folder of media the dialog is asking for...3. Here is the trick: You MUST actually select/highlight the first file that Premiere is asking for. The easiest thing is to click the 'displayexact name' button and then *actually click on the file* that matches the name.
