I updated to Physion, why does my DAW still show the plug-in name as ‘Fission’ in effect inserts and/or the available plug-ins menu?

Some DAWs cache the names of plug-ins in their general settings, or in session settings (e.g. for insert names). Resetting the DAW’s cache files and rescanning your plug-ins should fix this issue.

In particular, if you are using Logic Pro or GarageBand, you can reset the cache with the following steps:

Will I lose my settings or presets if I update to Physion from Fission?

There is 100% session compatibility between Physion and Fission so you will not lose any settings or presets.

If I already own Fission and update to Physion, will my existing Fission license still work?

Yes, the license is the exact same. In iLok License Manager, you may notice that the name of the license is still "Fission." You can update it by following these instructions.

Whether you update the name in the iLok License Manager or install the updated plug-in, your license will still work. If it does not, please contact support.

If I already own Fission, do I have to update to Physion?

There is no requirement to update, though we strongly recommend you do so, if only for consistency with online documentation, support, etc. Plus, by updating to Physion you will benefit from ongoing bug fixes and optimizations.
