Can BCC7 do this?

Using Sony Vegas Pro 10/64 and BCC7
I have a client who wants me to draw a line on a static image of a wall showing where pipes are under the wallboard. I am new to BCC7 but I am not sure of the best way to do this. Any tips would be appreciated.

Hi,

Yes, you can use the BCC Extruded Spline to do that.

Add a video track above the static image and add a piece of media to that track to which you apply the BCC Extruded Spline. Then, in the filter control panel, set the Path Type pop-up to Line and reduce the Extrusion and Bevel amount to the values that look good to your eye.

Cheers,

Peter.

Well, after spending an hour trying to follow John's tutorial on extruded spline...
In John's tut, when you load the FX on a blank event, you see the rectangle by default. When I do it, I get a black preview.

Then, I realize that my video card won't do extruded anything.

I have a new editing PC that I haven't migrated my programs to, so what's the proper procedure with BCC7? Is it like Adobe stuff where I have to unregister on one machine then install then re-register on the new one?

I can't find anything on this in the forums or documentation.

TIA

I built a new editing workstation to replace my aging quad-core. But, when I installed BCC7 trial on it, then open Vegas, and there's no BCC effects.
I tried restarting, just in case. No BCC7
I removed and reinstalled, no BCC7 in Vegas.

Of course, if there's no BCC7 trial in Vegas, I can't navigate the byzantine unlock process to use the purchased version.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks
Steve
