Pro Maintenance Tools 2.2 - manage Quartz Composer plugins, improved Avid support

Pro Maintenance Tools 2.2, our suite of tools for maintaining, optimizing and troubleshooting your editing system,  was recently updated with the following new features.

Manage Quartz Composer plugins

Plugin Manager now supports Quartz Composer plugins, allowing you to boost performance and troubleshoot FCPX issues by disabling or removing errant plugins.

Trash After Effects disk caches not in the default location

Housekeeper can now clear out After Effects disk caches that are set to a custom location. This a great way of freeing up space as the cache by default takes up 10% of your drive space (100 GB on a 1 TB drive).

Improved Crash Analyzer compatibility with Avid Media Composer

Recent versions of Avid have split up the app into different processes for improved stability and performance and Crash Analyzer can now analyze crashes in these extra processes.

Other changes

  • CS Repair - Fixed an issue that could cause files to be erroneously flagged up
  • Plugin Manager - Improved plugin installer compatibility with Xcode 8 and macOS Sierra
  • Updated Crash Analyzer definitions
  • Various other bug fixes, tweaks and improvements

Pro Maintenance Tools is an invaluable toolset to help working video professionals get up and running again quickly in the event of a problem. To find out more, see the feature overview, read the user manual, watch the overview video or download the free 15-day trial.
