FX Browser not working and crashes VegasPro 20

When I apply any Continuum Plug to a VP20 Event, the FX Browser it either doesn’t appear, or it will crash VP20.

The recent communication from VegasSoftware has informed us that they have done what is needed, and now it is over to BORIS. When will I get an update that will cure this unfortunate outcome?

BTW, last month I paid for a further year’s support.

Cheers - Grazie

Hi, i thought it was the other way around, Boris released an update very quickly that although the fx editor still doesn’t work it stopped the crashes, is it not in Vegas’s hands now?

It’s most certainly is in somebody’s hands. Having recently just purchased a further year’s worth of BORIS Continuum update support, I wish/want a solution.

Yep, I upgraded to 20 but am still using 19 because of this.
On a separate note try the Black Bar fill in 20, Dynamic Ram & render times are abysmal compared to 19😒
Ps I’m going to comment on that post link i shared, it’ll bring it back up the list in VP forum,

We continue to work actively with the Vegas engineering team on this issue. Hopefully it will be wrapped up shortly.


I hope that both BorisFX and Vegas teams are aware that the BCC+ problem also affects Title Studio. I can successfully create a title in Title Studio but the title simply won’t display on VP20’s timeline.

@dexcon, No we are not aware of that Title Studio issue and it would be a totally separate problem. We will try to reproduce that in our QA lab. Are you saying this only happens in Vegas 20? Are there any other details about this issue that would help us in reproducing? E.g. is it on EVERY Title Studio instance or only when certain features are used?

@jclement … Sorry, but it’s user error. Apologies for any inconvenience.

No problem - glad to hear there’s no issue!

Really? I don’t know what your UE was. Meaning, that TS is behaving badly too. See my latest POST.


There is a new Continuum 2022.5 patch which resolves the issue with the FX Editor and Mocha not showing frames in BCC+ filters in Vegas 20. If you re-download Continuum 2022.5 from the Boris FX website you will receive version 15.5.2B which contains this fix.

Thanks, seems to be working here, quick to load presets also :+1:

Yep, can confirm new drop seems to work fine. Thanks.

Working as expected! KUDOS to Boris and Vegas Team - thanks, guys.

Hi. I’m a little late to the party. I just upgraded from Vegas 19 to Vegas 20 Pro/Post, mainly because part of the bundle was Boris Continuum Title Studio.

I am sorry to report that my editing computer crashes within a few seconds of trying to run Title Studio within Vegas 20. I have a very robust PC, Built specifically for video editing.

I want to believe that this is something that can be resolved via bugfixes or parameter configurations. I have been using Vegas for about two years, and my PC is very capable of functioning at industrial-grade levels. It was built and sold as a pro editing computer, and it has every upgrade that was available to improve speed and reliability.

I love the looks of the titles from Title Studio, and want very much to be able to use it within Vegas 20 POST. I would love to help any developers work on this issue by providing screen-share recordings or any other information you might need.

Thanks so much for reading my post!



Can you please provide us with more details so we can better understand (and hopefully reproduce) the issue you’re seeing?

-Which host build are you using?
-What version of Continuum are you using?
-Hardware summary?
-Specific step by step instructions for reproducing the crash?
-Screencaptures demonstrating the issue would certainly be welcome. The more info the better.


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?

Very glad to hear that is working for you! Yes, we need to make sure the download links are updated.

As for why the account page says “expires”, perhaps that refers to the Update and Support period as opposed to the license itself. You could send an enquiry to our support team, but as long as they are listed as Permanent licenses and not subscription licenses it shouldn’t be anything to worry about.
