GridIron Software has just updated Nucleo Pro 2, its background processing and rendering plug-in for Adobe After Effects. Nucleo Pro 2.0.1 is recommended for all users and includes general fixes that enhance stability.

The company says that Nucleo Pro 2.0.1 improves shutdown time of After Effects on Mac OS X, and optimizes memory settings on 8-core Mac systems. It also resolves issues with stability of Cache Manager on Mac OS X v10.5, with starting Precomposition Proxies on Mac OS X 10.5, with starting Background Renders on multi-user systems, and with an issue with the number of processes started on 4-core systems running Mac OS X v10.5.

The Windows version of the update resolves an issue with starting 3D applications in the Background Render Queue on Windows XP and Vista.
