BUG#1 hiding calculation

hiding calculation passes of IM or LC, does not work correctly upon first time, you have to click "LC" button 2 times to hide IM only.

other than that

it is AN ACE script which does most of the things very well and i recommend it my friends and they have thanked me many timeson the phone.

as for me,90% of my renders are rush renders which have clean materials and less drama and this script saves me time/joy.
