Help! Boris FX suddenly disappeared from FCP 5.1.4

Hello,

I hope someone can help me. I've been running FCP 5.1.4 for 4 months now and Boris has been working fine (I mostly use Title 3D). When I booted up today, Boris is gone from my effects window. I haven't updated FCP or Boris in this same time period, so I'm confused. The Boris folder is still in the library but I don't know how to re-import it into FCP.

Thanks so much in advance,

John

John, here's the long and the short of it. The four bundle files that make up the Boris titling application called Calligraphy rely on the operating system to flag them as bundles instead of folders. In some cases (like when you update FCP or your OS) these bundles are mislabeled as folders, therefore FCP can not "see" them and you loose your titles. The fix for this is simple. Send an email to me at support@borisfx.com and put ATTN Paul in the subject field. I will then email you a link to where you can download a new set of bundles.

Paul

After I added the current software update to FCE, the effects popup no longer appeared when I followed the documentation and right-clicked the canvas. To add insult to injury, all the generator effects were absent when I clicked Effects in the menu.

After much frustration, it finally dawned on me to open the little icon marked A (with the film sprockets) below the canvas on the right. And voila!. There they all were (including Boris).
