I have recently upgraded to FCP7 and am editing using P2 files, I have discovered that when using BorisFX Chroma Key Studio, the system shuts down. However, when using a less-expensive chroma key plugin, the system seems fine and stable.
I've had a good look on their site and haven't yet found any upgrades from Boris that I should download. Does anyone know of any hidden pages anywhere?
I would be most grateful if you could shed any light on this.
First, see if the BCC Chromakey filter solves the problem. In any case, I'd like to see your project or perhaps a small portion of your sequence to reproduce the problem. Can you contact our tech support at email@example.com or me directly?
I was wondering if you were ever able to get any resolution on the Chroma Studio filter. I LOVE the trial that I used; however, I am having the same issues as you. I was able to get it to work on my MacBook Pro but had to constantly save my work every 2 to 3 minutes because it would crash. The desktop (MacPro) won't even open the clip with the filter on it without crashing.
I downloaded the 14-day free trail and ABSOLUTELY LOVE the chroma key application (ChromaKey Studio Unit); however, it is crashing Final Cut. I am running Leopard on my desktop and can't use the plug-in at all. Downloaded it on my MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard and have constant crashes throughout my work day - I am saving after every major edit because it crashes at different times when doing different edits. Compressor will not work at all.
Tech support said to use the other chroma key unit that was included because of OPEN GL something - but it does not even come close to what Chroma Studio does.
The error message I get when it crashes on my desktop is that Final Cut thinks that Borius Continuum Shaders is causing the problem (not really sure what that is besides another plug-in that was in the trial). The Shaders title of this plug-in also pops up on my desktop when launching FCP.
Has there been any update so that this plug-in works with Final Cut?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Have approval to buy this but it has to work for me.
