Trying to resurrect a 4.1 effect in a timeline from '06, from my old Meridien system, and my new Red 4.3 download doesn't seem to understand the old effect. Any hope?

MC 2.8.3 running on OS 10.4.11

Hi,

It should have worked - I'm a bit surprised that you were unable to open the effect from 4.1 into 4.3. Can you open the effect in the Meridian timeline alright using 4.1? If so then you could try to re-save the effect as a settings file onto the desktop and then attempt to open it with RED 4.3. If you would like to send me the settings file I can take a look at it to see if it opens on my systems. You can send it to me at peterm@borisfx.com.

Cheers,

Peter.

thanks so much for responding, Peter! That's a problem... as I open the Avid effects editor dialog, it's empty. No icon to save, no parameters. And the effect in the timeline shows the generic 'I-don't-know-this' effect icon.

I'm an official Red ABVB and Meridien customer from back at 2.5, but did not follow the upgrade path to 4.x. And I don't have access to those dated systems now. It's been over 2 years since I opened this tired timeline, and I've updated to MC/SDI Mojo since then. The BCC bundle is in fairly consistent use, but I've not used RED since then.

Perhaps access to an older trial version of RED would do the trick... I'm not an official 4.0x customer, so may not merit your attention on this.

All the best,

Bill

Hi Bill,

I think I understand what may be going on - please send me an email off list at peterm@borisfx.com.

Cheers,

Peter.

Peter,

Fired off a note off-forum, but my thread seems to be mis-titled. I'm trying to bring back an older BCC 'Cube' effect. Does this shed any light on the subject? My client has evidently become quite enamored of the older effect!
