Boris FX plugin for Vegas has a problem in getting the right information from Vegas to perform e.g proper stabilisation or motion tracking. Is this problem resolved in the new pro 9 version of Vegas?

Hi Theo,

To the best of my knowledge, nothing has changed with regard to the Vegas host passing the plug-in any sequence data / alternate frames in time. Until that happens we can't perform the stabilization. You can stabilize the clip using RED in standalone mode though, but you probably know this already.

Cheers,

Peter.

The problem lies entirely with Vegas and not Red. I have been asking Sony for a proper plugin interface for years, but to no avail.

But still I'm wondering why e.g Pixelans Spicemaster or CE have no problem to function within Vegas although those effects are also keyframeble over time. So apparently, a workaround possible.

Most features within Red do work correctly with Vegas. The problem is that Vegas serves up one frame at a time rather than the entire clip at once. This is true for ALL Vegas plugins. For Red filters that need to do a complete temporal analysis (such as motion tracking), the Vegas interface does not work. The work-around is to point to your clip from within Red rather than using the default V1 stream. You can still do this while you are using it as a plugin; no need for standalone mode.

I just learnt that thing are even worse: Vegas 9 Pro doesn't recognize at all the Boris plugins Graffitti and FX. Is there any chance that we will get an update of the Boris plugins for Vegas 9 pro?

Theo, are you using the 32 or 64 bit version of Vegas? As I recall, 64 bit Vegas is not compatible with 32 bit plugins.

You might want to post this on the SONY site, as there are several of us who are Vegas/Red/FX users. I have the Vegas Pro 9 update, but have not installed yet it due to the instability of the release.

Hi Peter.

>>As I recall, 64 bit Vegas is not compatible with 32 bit plugins.

Seeing as the industry is migrating towards 64 bit, does Boris have plans to re-release Boris products (RED, etceteras) in x64?

I happen to have RED, Graffitti and FX (long story), and it is a real shame I cannot use any of them on my Vista x64 machine (and I need Vista on it).

Thank you.

Norman

'Vegas 9 Pro doesn't recognize at all the Boris plugins Graffitti and FX'

Today I learned a very simpel solution for this problem from John Rofrano:

He wrote: "All you have to do is copy the BorisXXX.dll files that are in the Vegas Pro 8.0\Video Plug-Ins folder over to the Vegas Pro 9.0\Video Plug-Ins folder and restart Vegas."

And this solves the problem!

Theo,

Yes 9 is fully supported as long as you are not running a 64 bit app.

The vegas 8 install option will install into 8 but you can point it to the version 9 folder or move them manually as you stated.
