If you are logged in to your humble account try logging out. Then close the tab and re-open it with the link in the first post. Click the "GET THE BUNDLE" button which should take you to the bottom of the page. You should see this:
humble_purchase.jpg

That should let you choose "$23", "$25" or "Custom Amount" options (US dollars). After you pick your amount you can click the "Choose where your money goes" text to get this:
humble_money.jpg

From that you can change the sliders to set how much goes to charity, humble or Corel. Finally, click the Paypal (or pay with card) button to start the purchase. It'll then ask you to log in with your Humble account.

Good luck!

Problem solved. I need to disable the Hardware acceleration in the preview in order for it to work. Corel support is very helpful and knowledgeable. They knew exactly what I was talking about. Perhaps, this is a known issue. Hopefully, they will come up with a fix soon.
I've had to disable hardware acceleration on a few laptops with older intel only graphics and one with an older nvidia geforce but all of my newer desktops and laptops run with hardware acceleration enabled (editing 4k) really well. I guess it just depends on the graphics card. Glad you figured out the solution with Corel quickly as I'm sure it was frustrating.

Just wondering if anyone can confirm the serials for Aftershot worked for Mac. Since paintshop is not available I'd like to atleast get Lightroom equivalent.

Thanks

Apparently they've run out of Gravit Designer PRO keys, but they're working on getting more soon.

Damnit!!! Why did they have to extend this? I managed to hold off during the first term (I've got PSP 8X ultimate and only ever seem to use my LR 5 install) but broke down and grabbed the deal for an updated PSP along with Painter and the video editing software once they extended it. Again... I have my doubts I'll ever get much use out of them, but I'm a sucker for a deal and it is after all a canadian company. :)

I had completely forgotten they were Canadian... you triggered a memory of mine. I used to use WordPerfect and Quattro Pro back in the 80s and once visited their headquarters in Ottawa back then during a software conference. Thanks for dislodging that memory in my old brain. Happy to support a Canadian company as well.

Is it running slow for you with 4K? I have a pretty powerful laptop (i7-7700hq and GTX 1060) but editing 4K 60fps is extremely slow and laggy. Tried to find the smart proxy option but looks like only available in the multi cam editor... Not sure if those proxies get used when going back to regular editor.

A bit of an aside, and I'm debating whether or not to create a thread, but for anybody considering a budget drawing tablet to go with this software I did a bit of research and came up with this "deal" over on Amazon.ca for a Huion H610 Pro V2 that came out to $71 all-in after the coupon and free shipping are applied.....

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00GWYYXV0/ref ... 70_TE_item

Seems to be reasonably well reviewed as a decent sized budget drawing tablet, and most reviews I've seen suggest that the only real difference between the more recent product (1060 plus) is the number of physical buttons so I sided with the $20 - $30 savings rather than grabbing the more recent product.

As far as Corel being a Canadian company goes... I also spent a bit of time with word perfect back in the day, and was gobsmacked when the federal goverment chose microsoft's Office line over Corel's business suite.

Mine is a desktop. It is not too slow for me. My 4K is 30fps. The export time is shorter than the video time itself.

I don't have an issue with speed of editing @4k60 here on multiple systems (desktop and laptop, both i7s with 2070's). Maybe contact Corel and see if they have any ideas?
