As you may be aware, Apple plans to release macOS Catalina (10.15) in October 2019, an optional upgrade to their operating system. It’s important to note that Catalina is not compatible with 32-bit software (including QuickTime) which will not run on it.While the Color Finesse plug-in itself is 64-bit, the full UI is not, meaning that Color Finesse will not work on systems using Catalina as their operating system.If you rely on Color Finesse in your workflow, you should not migrate to Catalina.There is currently no schedule for any Catalina-related updates to Color Finesse.Windows users are unaffected by this issue.
