It is user data, so we don't uninstall anything you created or changed. The latest NeoScene has the same histogram control, without FirstLight you turn it on and off through the Active Metadata Status Viewer in the systray -- look fort the "C" icon. Right click on it and on to "Active Metadata" and uncheck "Tools" or "Histogram".

What kind of glitchs? I tried it as well and liked its features, it just kept locking up after about 3 minutes of playback.

Right-click the CineForm tray icon. In the Active Metadata menu item deselect "Tools". The specific menu organization has been changing lately as we're preparing for our v5 release, so it might not be in exactly the location I described.

Well, it would just crash for no apparent reason, and then the effects I'd apply (like white balance) might not take effect until 10 seconds after I hit Play.

One of the things I really liked was the Temperature setting in white balance. A super easy way to adjust the kelvin temp of the footage in one easy slider.

Thanks Dave. I figured that out last night before hitting the sack.

By "crash" do you mean the firstlight player would stop playing and lock up. Because thats what it was doing when I tried it.

Both report to support on how you did it and what type of source caused the failure. May already be solved, as I haven't seen a lockup in ages. We were very stable at NAB.
