Install Instructions

Window Installer(s)

The installer below is for use with all AE compatible products including After Effects and Premiere Pro. For Fusion, please use the OFX version instead.

To Download and install:

  1. Make sure you have one or more AE plug-in compatible applications on Windows.

If you have an older version of Sapphire Plug-ins, the new installation will replace it, and you do not need to un-install it first.

  1. Quit AE or other host applications that may be running.

  2. Download the 9.03 Windows installer (90 Mb).

Either run the installer program from its current location, or save it to disk and then execute it from wherever you saved it. Follow the instructions given by the installer.

  1. Restart your host application, and the new plug-ins should appear in your effects menu.

New in 9.03:

  • Temporarily disabled Expand Borders/Soft Borders in Premiere to fix a conflict with the HDR support introduced in Sapphire 9.02. This fixes rendering errors in effects such as Blur, Glow, and DropShadow. We are working on an improved fix that will reintroduce Expand Borders. Effects with Expand Borders/Soft Borders turned on may render slightly differently.

  • Improved loading of old v6 projects containing ZFogLinear and ZFogExponential when Z Near and Z Far were set their default values.

  • Fixed a crash in BokehLights with size set to zero and color fringing turned on.

  • Fixed a bug where S_Grain would go from color to monochrome after 524,000+ frames.

  • Fixed a memory leak in LensFlare, NightSky, and BokehLights when rendering on the GPU.

  • Fixed a bug that caused some presets for multi-effect plugins to be saved with the wrong effect.

  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the “More Help” button in the help dialog to open the wrong documentation.
