Do not forget to run your Terminal as Administrator, otherwise you will need user interaction to confirm the Administrator rights prompt. This also works using Microsoft SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager) to automate deployment

    • When using the "Add LUT To Sidecar" button in the panel with some kind of LUTs, it could involve immediate crash until the sidecar was removed

Another practical use of this is to batch change Source Settings, for example now you are able to make exports with two different .BRAW color grade with only a few clicks, by storing the first color grade inside Custom A and the second Color Grade inside Custom B
    • Prev And Next buttons are not disabled anymore when no clip is selected. They now select the first or last clip in the timeline in that case
