Known Issues

To date we have identified 2 minor issues which we would like to make you aware of:

Cloud imageGraphics
Several of the Adobe applications are extremely graphics intensive, therefore some functionality doesn’t perform as well on standard machines as in the specialist labs.

Ray Tracing
Some users have reported an error when using Ray Tracing (a function within the After Effects CC application in the Adobe suite).  Ray Tracing requires very high performance and specific graphics cards to operate correctly.

Neither of the issues stops the product from being used however please give us feedback via the IS Service Desk if you experience any further problems. | Edinburgh Napier Mobile App
