Hi, when working with the BBC lens flare filter from Boris in Vegas 11 on an empty event, the background suddenly goes black. The lens flare is still there, but the transparent background layer empty event from vegas turned black.
Is there a way to keep the empty event transparent?
Glare, Glint, Glitter, & Flare all behave the same way with the background layer turning black when the filter is added. The rest of Boris plugs do not behave this way. What is the reason? Is it controllable?
It might be that the empty event is not passing any pixel data into the filter and tricking the filter into thinking that there is nothing underneath. You might want to try applying the filter directly to a media layer instead of an empty event to see if this resolves the issue.
The filters that you mention are all OpenGL rendering and this might be related to the fact that they seem to work better in that host when applied directly to a video clip.
