First post on here.
so my problem with Boris Red is that, when i apply the Boris RED for Avid filter on the timeline and i do my sfx. when i apply and step out of Boris, Avid shows me the FX preview, but halfway into the clip, the preview turns black.

So lets say i have a 30frame fade in, 180frame of scale up and various FX and a 30frame fade out at the end, Avid will show me the first 90frames of the FX then go black for the remaining 90frames.

When i render, i can see the whole comp.
Our company had AvidFX a while back and this wasnt happening, now we got Boris Red which is basicaly the same thing and were getting this problem.

Anyone ever had this issue?

This isn't a known issue, but since you're upgrading from AvidFX to RED, I would recommend deleting the preferences for both. If you're on PC, the files would be located here -
C:\Users\[CURRENT USER]\AppData\Local\BorisFX

If you're on a Mac, they would be located here -
Macintosh HD :: Users :: [Current User] :: Library :: Preferences

If this does not help, do you think you can reproduce this with a test project using some still images (just as test files small enough to send via email), and then forward this test project to
