SpiceMaster 3 Pro Help and Tutorials

SpiceMaster 3 Technical Support FAQs

1. How do I install SpiceMaster 3 in two different versions of Premiere Pro or After Effects?

First install in your latest version of Premiere Pro or After Effects, which the SpiceMaster installer will likely recognize and find automatically. Then, run the installer again, in installer's "Information" panel select "Custom Install" (if available). In installer's "Destination" panel use the Browse button to navigate to and enter in the MAIN folder of your earlier Premiere Pro or After Effects version, such as "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS6".

NOTE: To install automatically in all Premiere Pro or After Effects CC versions, select "Simple Install" in installer's "Information" panel.

2. I see a black screen (or other odd results) in my preview... how do I fix that? SpiceMaster is a hardware-accelerated plugin which uses your computer's video/graphics chip to accelerate its rendering. Therefore, a DirectX 9 compatible graphics card is required. A DirectX 10 compatible card with at least 512 MB video memory is recommended for HD and high bit-depth editing. Intel GMA 8xx and 9xx video are not supported, for example. Even if you have a compatible card, a small percentage of users may see unexpected results (such as black output) when applying SpiceMaster. In that case, please follow these steps:
a. Run our small Pixelan Render Controller app located in your Start > All Programs > Pixelan > Masters folder. It will quickly show you the available renderers.
b. Use the Default renderer menu at the top of the app's window to switch the render engine to a different renderer that reports O.K. (Direct3D 10 is recommended, if it shows O.K. for all its aspects). Then re-start your video editing program to see if the problem is solved.
c. If there is still a problem, please return to the Pixelan Render Controller app and click the Export text report button at its bottom. Then please contact us about the problem and paste the exported text into our contact form. If you have Premiere Pro and use an NVIDIA Quadro video card, please also mention the card model in your email.


3. SpiceMaster is installed in Vegas, but the Effects Browser images appear noticeably darker or a different color than my actual footage. What is wrong? If your Vegas project properties Pixel format is "32-bit floating point (full rnage)" and Compositing gamma is "1.000 (linear)" the Effects Browser images will appear dark. Use the Vegas Gamma button at the bottom of the Effects Browser to compensate for this. Also note that if Vegas project properties View transform is "On" the colors in Effects Browser images will not exactly match the Vegas preview.appear dark. Use the Vegas Gamma button at the bottom of the Effects Browser to compensate for this.
