RED quitting unexpectedly
by arjay601 on Jul 11, 2007 at 6:12:21 pm
I'm running both Red3GL and 4. I've started using 4 with my newer FCP 5.1 projects but I have several older FCP 5 projects with Red3 comps and when I park my playhead over them, double-click and then attempt to activate the filter FCP crashes. The problem seems to be with the Red3GL engine because when I try to launch the stand alone engine it tries to start up but then crashes as well. I get the "The application Boris RED quit unexpectedly" box. My Red3 was a Try and By version so I don't know if I need to try to download the whole app again or if there's something else I can try. Any ideas? Thanks - Rich.

More information now. I've reinstalled Red 4. I did the whole Caps lock thing upon restarting FCP. FCP still crashes every time I either apply RED 4 or try to re-open a RED 4 effect. Yes, the play head is directly on the clip. I'm dead in the water here. Do I re-install FCP? I've got a Technical Assistance request into Boris but this is driving me crazy.

For anyone who may be interested...
My final follow up. My RED3 and RED4 apps were somehow, someway, apparent victims of a Carbon Copy Cloning attempt gone bad. Even after I returned everything to my original configuration both RED engines failed to launch. So...after working all weekend rebuilding my system from the OS-up on a new clean drive everything is now working great.
Special thanks to Paul and the rest of tech support at Boris for all the help and guidance. RED3 was a TNB version so I was directed to a link for download. Outstanding service BorisFX! Thanks.
