Draft 1.4.3

This version of Draft will not work with Deadline 6 or earlier.

What’s New

New License File Required


  • Scripts written for previous versions of Draft should still work fine with Draft 1.4.
  • Added support for OS X El Capitan (version 10.11).


  • Added support for controlling image compression and quality settings.
  • Updated to ImageMagick 6.9.1.


  • Updated to FFmpeg 2.8.

General Improvement

  • Writing an image to file with an undefined compression doesn’t issue a warning anymore.
  • Improved Draft robustness.

Bug Fixes

  • Draft was always writing PNG and TIFF files with an alpha channel.
  • The TileAssembler was setting final data window with width and height one pixel bigger than necessary, temporarily carrying useless black pixels.
  • Successive crops was not giving the correct results (resulting image was shifted).
  • Fixed a bug in deepcopy.
  • Changed Magick::Color( “black” ) to Magick::Color( 0, 0, 0 ) so Draft won’t rely on finding colors.xml.
  • Draft was not closing files properly (bug introduced when ffmpeg was updated to version 2.3).
  • It was impossible to resize a one pixel image (bug introduced when support for exr windows was added).
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Draft Tile Assembler to assemble tiles with empty data window.
