Hi, @jclement ,
Thanks for reaching out to me.
I think the problem may be solved. Someone on the Vegas forum suggested that I make sure I have the latest version of all products installed.
It turns out that the links that came to me from MAGIX (the vendor for VEGAS) for the bundle including Title Studio (in their current sale) pointed to a Legacy version of Continuum.
So to fix the problem, I uninstalled Continuum, Title Studio, and Particle Illusion. I then downloaded the latest version of Continuum from the BorisFX download site, gave it my registration credentials from my purchase, and the final stage of the install filtered out and removed the Continuum elements that my license did not include (which is fine) .
Now I can launch Continuum Title Studio from Vegas 20 and it all works like it should. It does make Vegas run a little slow, as any resource-intensive plugin can, but it doesn’t crash, at least so far. I can reduce the monitoring resolution and get rid of the lag, if needed, when working on animated title timing. The main thing is that it now works. The programs are working together. The titles are stunning. It looks amazing in 4k render.
So it would probably be WAY COOL if Magix would check to use links that are up-to-date when they put together a bundle that includes BorisFX products, or any other, for that matter.
I was really disappointed when Vegas would crash every time I launched BCC Title Studio. I am now really elated to have it working properly.
I will continue to test as time allows, but it appears to me that the issue is resolved from removing outdated legacy BCC and replacing it with the current version.
An odd thing: on the BorisFX Site, under my account, it shows 2 licenses (an older one from 2021, and my new one from Feb 2023). On the first page it shows both licenses as “Permanent”. When you drill down into the individual licenses, they show “expires”. What’s up with that?
