    Using older Boris avx effects in latest Avid

    Hi, we've recently ugraded some machines to Avid 8 using the support contract method - as this leaves us with very basic effects I've tried to put our old Boris FX on - these are Continuum Complete AVX 7 and Avid FX discs that came with MC5.5. On one machine they seem to work fine and on another they're not showing up in Avid, although they seemed to install.

    The suites are fairly similar, although one is Win7 Pro and one (the one they're not showing on) is Win8 Pro - is this something anyone has tried? They seem to install ok, you don't get any warnings, but they just don't show in Avid.

    Cheers

    Re: Using older Boris avx effects in latest Avid

    Media Composer 8 is a 64 bit program.  The older AVX filters were 32 bit, and will not work in the newer versions of MC.  The ones that do work are the 64 bit versions.  You might want to look into Boris Red, which is the upgrade to Avid FX.  There was a discounted rate for MC users.  I believe it was at http://www.borisfx.com/press/Boris-FX-Announces-Boris-RED-5.5-for-the-Avid-Product-Family.php

    Hope this helps,

    Denny

    Hi Denny, thanks for responding. That was what I was confused about - the same effects work on one PC (Avid 8, Win 7 pro 64bit) but not another (also Avid 8 but win8 pro). I only tried to install them on the offchance, I didn't really expect them to work but now I don't get why they work on one machine but not the other, when they are very similar.

    Hi Dan,

    Any of the 64 bit versions of Boris products should work with the later versions of MC.

    The latest BCC 8 was working with MC 8.2 so the above statement is incorrect.
