[Maxwell Federman]"From the link which was provided to the m100 FTP site, I went to the higher-level directory to search for Graffitti v2.1.2 (I had no luck) "
I looked on the Boris website, and it seems like these old updates are not posted there anymore. I would suggest getting in touch with Boris support or sales to see if you can get the updates from 2.0 to 2.1.2 from somewhere. Should be free, as far as I can recall.
[Maxwell Federman]"...the minimum version listed for m100 8.1.1 requirements is Boris FX v6.1.2 "
Do you have no version of BorisFX at all? If you don´t need the effects, you should not need to buy the newer version. What kind of problems are you seeing?
I will contact Boris about that upgrade for Graffiti and let you know know the result in case this issue comes up again.
I do not own any version of Boris FX. But I am not opposed to buying it especially if I can find a compatible older version at a discount.
The problem is motion effects. Rendering Motion Path compositions within the m100 Program timeline is causing the app to crash. I hadn't used the motion path editor prior to the upgrade, so I cannot be certain that the upgrade caused the problem. Attempting to render programs with media in the graphics track also causes the system to crash (I attribute this to the lack of Graffiti update). I am trying to help an NLE-inexperienced colleague (my boss) through the tutorial, which; as you may know, contains a motion path effect and Graffiti titles.
Now that I have the slot order info I will have the technician check it out tommorrow. (I don't work on computer hardware since the night I accidentally fried a Quantel board years ago).
As always, I appreciate your help. I had a question in the Encore forum and had to post it 3 times to get one answer!
