Oops! Something went wrong with uploading the files when I added this hotfix. The download links pointed to Hotfix #6 still. Please re-download Hotfix #7 if you downloaded it already. It's now pointing to the correct version.
Thanks, fengda2870 for pointing it out.



I added two rather critical fixes to Apophysis 7x15c:

+ Fixed post_curl variation by doing the following on Zueuk's suggestion (more below)
+ Fixed a bug which created a spiral (why so ever) on the blur variation when using multithreading

post_curl_c3 got removed and post_curl was made a simple, 3D aware variation (Z-passthrough)
The functionality of the former, built-in post_curl was renamed to post_curl3D which essentially a post'ified curl3D where the latest post_curl behaves like the plugin (except for the Z-passthrough)
This fix was done as a result of the recent CDA.

The problem that the blur-variations as well as the crop-variations might malfunction if you use MT and render anything non-transparent PNG is known and subject to fix in a later release, still. The fix for the spiral problem is kind of rough and has a (very very tiny) impact on the performance. Most likely, you won't notice it. But I want a better fix in there too :)

What the "CDA" meaning?

"Community Debugging Assistance" - an initiative where I publish all information I have about a problem and ask the community to research it. Especially bug patterns and triggers as well as case tests and problem reproduction.

I noticed that the flatten variation appears checked by default for use in random flame generation. Arbitrarily flattening xforms in random flames defeats the purpose of enabling 3D in all of the variations, doesn't it?

You have to disable "flatten" in options/variations :)

Yes, I know, but I think lots of other people will not realize that flatten has been ticked by default.

The reason for that is that I want the default behavior to be like in 15B. If you want the new stuff, you should enable it :) This to not confuse people with a sudden, new behavior :)

Thank you very much George! I appreciate the attention you gave to my bug report and I think the way you choose to get opinions is really worthwhile.
The post_curl variables now work smoothly in the 64 bit version.

IMO, the only way was to ask the community for assistance. Because I didn't know how to fix it :) I'm glad we found a solution and it works for everyone's benefit now!

I see the same thing.
I save the hotfix packages under different names.
I notice that the zip file sizes haven't changed between hotfixes 6 & 7. (Also true for source files.)
So I think fix 7 did not get to the server somehow.
It's ok. There is plenty to explore anyway.

Thank you again for all the time and work you put into this project, I have just downloaded the last 15C -hotfixes#7 and seems to be working properly.
I created a new folder just for 15C and added the flame folder. (I do have a bloody mess with all the Apo versions, so hope that this new one will be IT and start on a new slate) :D :hug: :iconskizzplz:
BTW I can add more plugins if necessary, can I ?
