Here are the answers that you have been looking for and specifics about our Digital Anarchy products.

Beauty Box for Video

Please contact us if you are a current Beauty Box Video owner, and need help with reinstalling or recovering your serial number.

NOTE: This CS5 64-bit update does not include our upcoming render speed update, which will be released in mid-July.

Beauty Box for Photoshop

Beauty Box Photo was released on June 1st, 2010. The product is already compatible with Photoshop CS4 64-bit and Photoshop CS5 64-bit, so no update is needed..

ToonIt Photo for Photoshop

Our CS5 update was released for Mac and Windows on June 29th. This release was ToonIt Photo 2.6.

This 2.6 update also adds a cool feature called background rendering. When you change a parameter, the render will stop and start over, eliminating the beachball wait, and the render will show a progress bar. It is not technically faster but it is more responsive.

ToonIt Photo for Aperture

This product doesn't need an update because there is no CS5 equivalent of Apple's Aperture. If you were using Aperture 2.0 and are planning to move to Aperture 3.0, then you will want our current version of ToonIt Aperture.

General FAQ's about 64-bit Support

What is all the fuss about the Adobe CS5 release?

  • What is all the fuss about the Adobe CS5 release?
  • On April 30, 2010, Adobe started shipping the CS5 Suite. This includes updates of Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere Pro. The CS5 versions of these applications are 64-bit only. This means these programs do not run on 32-bit operating systems. They only run in on 64-bit operating systems. For Mac, this is 10.5, 10.6 and higher. For Windows, this is Vista 64-bit and Windows 7. Digital Anarchy plugins need to be re-released as 64-bit plugins in order to run in CS5 applications.

On Windows 64-bit, how do I run DA product in Photoshop CS4 32-bit?

  • I am running a Windows 64-bit OS and Photoshop CS4. My Digital Anarchy plugin has not yet been released for CS4 64-bit. How do I run Digital Anarchy product in CS4 32-bit?
  • This topic can be a little confusing. When Photoshop CS4 installs on a Windows/Vista computer, there should be two application folders: One called "Adobe Photoshop CS4" and one called "Adobe Photoshop CS4 (64bit)". By default, Adobe installs Photoshop 64-bit version in the Program Files folder, and installs the 32-bit version in the Program Files(x86) folder.
  • If you are on a 64-bit OS (Windows 7 or Vista 64-bit), then Photoshop CS4 will automatically start you in 64-bit mode. In order to start up in Photoshop CS4 32-bit mode, you need to go to the 32-bit executable file in 'C:\Program Files (x86)' and double-click. By the way, the 64-bit version is referred to as 'x64' while the 32-bit version will be listed as 'x86'.
  • The application folder for CS4 32-bit should be at this location:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Photoshop.exe
  • If you are installing our plugin to CS4 32-bit, the install path should be:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Plug-ins\
  • NOTE: If you don't see both folders, then Photoshop messed up during installation. You need to go back to your CS4 install disk and do a custom install. During that installation, go to the Custom Install screen and scroll down to Photoshop. The 32-bit checkbox will be right underneath the 64-bit one.
