This beta introduces "Blend-X Transition" effect
It allows you to make transitions using some blend modes
I'ts a kind of additive dissolve ...


This beta introduces "False Color" mode in the Oscilloscope
False color is one of the most effective exposure tools.
The concept of false color is quite simple:
different luminance values are represented by distinct colors
to give you a clear understanding of the exposure levels
of every part of your image.
