I just got my AMD Phenom II X4 965, and was wanting to see how RED/BLUE performs on it, but the RED 4.3.3 plugins don't show up in Vegas pro 10 64bit and BLUE 2.5.2 just starts and then shuts down. No pop-up; in the Task manger it appears then vanishes.

Do I need to install the 32bit Vegas Pro 10 on this machine as well in order to use RED? What about BLUE? :(

The issue is not with Windows 7. Your guess is right, you need to use Vegas 32 bit until RED 5 ships. Another option is to use RED standalone. The plugin has to match the app - 32 bit for now, 64 bit in the future.

This should not be happening. I'm running Boris BLUE 2.5.2.582 without any problems on Windows 7 64-bit as a 32-bit application. Something is wrong with your computer configuration (perhaps video card drivers) if BLUE is shutting down on you. It should work.

I have an nVIDIA GeForce 9500GT PCIE2card with 1GB VRAM:

NVIDIA System Information report created on: 01/18/2011 23:17:14
System name: PJCI-W7HP-002

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit
DirectX version: 11.0
GPU processor: GeForce 9500 GT
Driver version: 260.99
CUDA Cores: 32
Core clock: 550 MHz
Shader clock: 1375 MHz
Memory clock: 400 MHz (800 MHz data rate)
Memory interface: 128-bit
Total available graphics memory: 2814 MB
Dedicated video memory: 1024 MB DDR2
System video memory: 0 MB
Shared system memory: 1790 MB
Video BIOS version: 62.94.29.00.50
IRQ: 18
Bus: PCI Express x16 Gen2


My new 4-core system came with an ATI Radeaon HD 5450 1GB, but I wanted to see how the GF9500GT would perform with these games I got. So it could be the card. But I think it's weird that BLUE ran fine under XP with the GF7600GS 512mb, and with W7 and this card it loads with this dialog, but then just starts seemingly OK.


Then I ran a test:

Graphics Card: GeForce 9500 GT/PCI/SSE2
OpenGL Version: 3.3.0
Driver Version: 6.14.12.6099
Available Texture Memory: 2787 MB
Max Texture Dimension: 8192 x 8192
Physical CPU count: 1 (I actually have 4x3.4ghz, or is this referring to GPU)

Shaders: C:\Program Files (x86)\Boris FX, Inc.\Boris BLUE 2.5\Shaders\
Hardware Status: Your system's video card driver version is not supported by BorisFX.
Critical Testing: Successful.

- A component of your system has been detected which is not officially supported by Boris FX for OpenGL based rendering.
- Blues's OpenGL state may be manually set from either it's Preferences or Preview Menu.
For more information please see "Using OpenGL" in the Boris Blue Help Menu

Soo...go figure....

Once I'm done playing with the 9500GT, I'll replace it with the Readeon HD5450 and report back.

This may be a card/driver version issue. I suggest contacting our support at this point
