Fnord software have released a free update to ProEXR bringing several new improvements.
Among the new features in ProEXR 1.7 are:
1. Premiere Pro plug-in: ProEXR for Premiere lets you import and export OpenEXR sequences in Premiere Pro. It supports timecode, all the EXR compression options, and takes advantage of Premiere's native floating point pipeline.
2. After Effects performance boost: More work has been put into getting performance gains out of the AE plug-ins. In some tests, the new plug-ins are twice as fast as what was released in version 1.6, which was already an improvement over 1.5, the version currently shipping in After Effects.
3. ProEXR EZ is free
4. VRimg support - Many VRay users convert their multipass VRimg files to OpenEXR and then open them with ProEXR. Now they can skip a step and open VRimg files directly in Photoshop and After Effects.
The latter point is perhaps the most exciting to V-Ray users, and vray.info's first tests show that it works well as long as the files are saved with a .vri file extension (instead of the default .vrimg extension).
