Pro Maintenance Tools 2.0.6 released - repairs Motion projects, better FCPX plugin support, QT Repair improvements and more

Last week we released Pro Maintenance Tools 2.0.6, a minor update to our suite of tools for maintaining, optimizing and troubleshooting your editing system.

Significant QT Repair improvements

We made significant improvements to QT Repair, particularly when removing edits from trimmed QuickTime movies. It's now considerably faster at repairing edits, performs better on large files and we fixed an issue that could cause out of sync audio on larger files.

We also added an option in preferences to not backup the file before starting a repair. We don't recommend this as a general rule but it's useful to avoid lengthy copying times if you already have the file backed up.

Improved FCPX support in Plugin Manager

Plugin Manager has had significantly improved FCPX support. It now displays the proper plugin names for FxFactory plugins and installs Motion templates and plugins you drag in to the correct directories based on their file type.

Motion projects can now be repaired

Project Repair now has the ability to repair corrupt Motion projects.

We also added an option to strip keyframes from Adobe Premiere projects when repairing them. This is useful when a project fails to load at startup and mentions keyframes as the cause.

The full changelog is available here.

Pro Maintenance Tools is an indispensable suite of applications for video editors. To find out more, see the features page, watch the overview video or download the free trial.
