    uninstall Boris BCC AVX 6 & Avid FX 5.8

    Hello,

     

        I can't seem to be able to uninstall Boris BCC AVX 6 and Avid FX 5.8. I installed these apps since they came with our avid 4.0.5 and I needed the scan line effect from Boris. After installing these apps my xdcam import broke. The "disk label" field in the import window was gone and with out a disk label string I can't import anything.

    So my solution was to uninstall Boris and Avid FX, I do the boris uninstall and the BCC effects are still there and active. There is no Uninstall option on Avid FX 5.8. I then uninstalled Avid MC, Boris again and deleted all the Avid FX 5.8 files I could find, there was only preferences and the folder in the applications folder. Then I re-installed Avid Media Composer and low and behold the BCC effects are still there in my effect palatte as well as the Avid FX 5.8 and they are still active and I can launch and go into Avid FX 5.8 from MC. AFTER A fresh install! Obviously something is goofy with these two apps and I just want them gone.

    My system is 2009 Mac Pro 2.93 8 core running OS 10.6.2, 12GB Ram, hooked up to a Nitris DX, running MC 4.0.5, hope I'm including pertinent info. Thanks for any help I'm so frustrated.

    Re: uninstall Boris BCC AVX 6 & Avid FX 5.8

    Fwiw, In my applications folder, I have folders for Avid FX 5.8, Avid unstallers and Boris AVX 6, AVX 7, each containing specific uninstall programs.

    Re: uninstall Boris BCC AVX 6 & Avid FX 5.8

    Adman,

     

        Thanks for your reply, I'm not at work so I can't be specific or attach images, but in my Avid FX 5.8 folder there is only the application icon, and the help folder with all the html pages. In my boris folder there is an uninstall folder but as you can see from above the uninstall didn't actually uninstall. And in my Avid Uninstaller folder there are no uninstallers for Avid FX or Boris which makes sense to me.

     

        This problem has been solved and its either a bug with Avid FX 5.8 or with Boris BCC AVX 6 and the import window's disk label field. I had to go to Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Avid/AVX2_Plug-ins - and physically remove Avid FX.avx, BCC 3D Objects.avx, BCC Real Time.avx, BCCStatic RT.avx, and BCC.avx; as well as remove the 4 Boris folders from Application Support folder to actually remove the boris and avid fx plug ins, after doing this my xdcam disk label field returned to normal.

    My advice for anyone who works xdcam hd 50mbit natively (import) on 10.6.2 and AMC 4.0.5 do NOT install Boris or Avid FX, if I have the time tomorrow I will try installing them individually to see if its one or the other causing the issue and report back. Thanks again, have a good night.

    The uninstaller might be brought together with your downloaded installer, make sure that you are using the latest versions
