I just updated Boris RED from version 5.0 to version 5.1.5. I did so because when I tried to launch Boris transitions from FCP 7 it would not load the Boris interface (this, btw, was a recent problem, and I thought it would get solved by simply updating Boris).
The first weird thing I noticed is that during the installation, it didn't list FCP as a host. Here:
I proceeded with the install. Then I noticed I had two different folders in my Applications folder, one for Boris RED 5.0 and another one for Boris RED 5.1.5. Thinking that having both would cause problems, I decided to uninstall 5.0. I then launched FCP 7, only to find out that none of the Boris filters or transitions show up. And so I started this thread.
Any ideas of what could be wrong here? Thanks in advance.
I'm glad that you provided a screenshot as this made the problem that you are experiencing an easy one for me to diagnose. The issue at hand, based on the screenshot that you have provided, is that you have installed Boris RED 64 into FCP7 which is a 32 bit host. That won't work. You need to download the RED 5 32 bit installer from the borisfx.com website. So go ahead and do that, then install the update and the transitions should be working as expected.
Update: I reinstalled Boris 5.1.1 and this time it showed FCP as an install option. I opened up my fcp7 and I can now see Boris Red transitions, however only 2 effects shows up. When I click on the "option" nothing loads, nothing happens. Any ideas.
I just recently purchased Boris red 5.1 for my fcp7, however Boris did not load in my fcp7 effects bin. Not sure what to do. I have uninstalled Boris and reinstalled it twice and still it does not show up in FCP7. Would love your feedback and direction to resolve the issue.
