V4.1 Beta 9 Now Available(Update May 23 2014)

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

As some of you have already seen, our latest beta is now available for downloading.  Once again, thanks to our hero Masahiro.   Windows users please note: 32 bit version is not yet available due to a bug (Update: now fixed).

Is 05-20-2014 release Beta 9 appropriate for Mac?

I downloaded LightZone-4.1.0beta9.dmg and verified SHA1, but application file date is 04-29-2014. Perhaps I just missed the 4.1b9 Mac announcement. I only ask because I read about 4.1b8 Mac UnsupportedID tag and crash issues as recent as 05-10-2014, and didn't see anything about it in the changelog.

It's just because the clock

It's just because the clock on my OS X wasn't set right. Sorry to confuse you.

Okay, thanks for

Okay, thanks for clarification. I ran 4.1 Beta 9 on my iMac last night with OSX 10.9.3, and did not encounter any issues. It was by no means extensive testing, but it worked great for some routine adjustments. Thank you so much for continuing to support and improve this excellent software.

4.1 beta 9

runs perfectly now, thank you !-) 

4.1 Beta 9 - Issue with copy and paste of tool stack

I have an issue with copy and paste of tool stack with raw files. It looks like the RAW adjustment layer gets double stacked with odd results. :edit:

-- Tool stack was from old version (3.6.1) of LightZone. Discussion in MAC Beta Test Forum...

AMD Athlon, 2GB RAM runs perfectly.

Thank you.




To avoid cross poating

beta 9 on XP-SP3 is not working for me:


Additional Info: Intel i7-2640M 4GB RAM

missing MSVCR100.dll

Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit, can not open program due to missing MSVCR100.dll eventhough the file is present in C:\Program\LightZone\jre\bin and C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and lots of other locations.


Then it says "Could not load JVM library"


Please advise how to get it to work.

Same Configuration, Same Problem.

I too, am curious about a fix. Apologies for a "Me Too" Comment, Just confirming the Issue.

4.1.7 or 4.1.9?

Going to the download block and using the links, which take me to https://spideroak.com/browse/share/ktgw0316/lightzone/LightZone-windows/.

Files there say 4.1.7 for me, not 4.1.9. Please advise.

Thanks in advance,
