I’m having a problem with BCC Title Studio OFX Host (Vegas 20).
Using some of the template things look perfect in the Boris UI WIndow but back in the OFX host it’s as if the comp lights are being completely ignored. I’ve created a short video to demonstrate… need for a project deliverable tomorrow… help?!!
I’ve not been able to reproduce the issue that you’re showing but I’ll ask our QA team to take a look. In the meantime, can you try using some live action shots instead of vegas solid color generators and let us know if this changes the result?
So no visible change to the result when working with live action shots instead of Vegas generated solid media elements. And unfortunately I am unable to reproduce what you’re seeing. You’re using the most recent version of Continuum Title Studio, right? It should be Continuum 2023.
Do you have any other OFX hosts installed on that system that you can test with to see if the issue is Vegas specific? BlackMagic DaVinci Resolve, perhaps? If not it’s a free download so I wonder if you can try that please.
I’m sorry see you’re having difficulty with Title Studio. I took a look at the presets you’re using and they all use the same basic structure, flat textures, so there isn’t anything intrinsically different between them which should cause the issue you’re seeing.
While I’m unable to reproduce the lighting/opacity issue that you’re seeing with the base preset, there are a few things we can try. You may have already done this, but just to be thorough, could you please check to make sure you’re using the latest Vegas20 build (326).
secondly, lets delete all of our preferences and plugin cache.
You’ll want to clear the vegas plugin cache (let me know if you need a walkthrough on that), as well as deleting the Title Studio Preferences.
They can be found here: C:\Users\qa\AppData\Local\BorisFX\Continuum 2023.5 (or the version of continuum you have) \Continuum16_BCC_Preferences_OFX.html
Once you have done that, ad cleared your plugin cache, relauch and see if the issue is still present.
If it is still present, go ahead and reset your Vegas 20 preferences to default and try again.
If it’s STILL rendering incorrectly, save the title animation out of Title Studio (as a .blu file) and send it to me. Perhaps there is something in Title Studio that got toggled and isn’t responding to prefs.
In Continuum Title Studio, “Controls” tab, as I progressively lower “Final Quality Level” from Best to “Basic”, the image in the Vegas host becomes progressively brighter. When set to “Basic” it looks 100% proper.
??? Does this help you figure out what’s happening?
I could literally watch it progressively get brighter –
in V20, preview of TS was dark-grey. Went into TS and lowered FinalQualityLevel <save/exit>
in V20, preview got a bit brighter and more saturated! Repeated process in TS…
V20 was full saturation/brightnes only when Final Quality Level was set to “Basic”.
I’ll make a video demonstrating.
It may (or may not) be the root cause, but it absolutely fixed the problem.
Yep VP20 build 326,
TS plays like crap on my machine, so I might have something setup differently to you,
FX browser also plays like crap,
I tried recreating your problem earlier when you first posted but couldn’t,
If you want me to set both programs up in a certain way just let me know,
