    2019.6 Runtime Errors especially with Boris Red, plus other stuff

    Having massive Runtime Errors with 2019.6.  Doesn't seem to like Boris Red that I've been using for years.  Can't make changes on any Boris effects or any clips next to a Boris effect.  New projects don't like Boris.  Runtime Error, Crash.  Every time.  This is fun!

    Avid Tech Support had me create a new User.  That seemed to work for about 5-minutes.

    And, the Pulldown Menus Tabs in the Composer Window decided to change its Font to some Old English.  Can barely read it.  And, the Floating Windows don't like to stay exactly where I place them.

    Anyone?

    I haven't checked Boris Red yet, but I will see if it's working on my system.

    To fix the Composer window font, click anywhere in the composer window to select it, then go to the Windows menu and choose Set Font.

    In order to fix the floating window position, after setting the windows in the workspace where you want them, go to the Windows menu and choose Workspaces->Save Current.

    Hey Dave.  Thanks for your reply.  I looked everywhere for the Set Font thing in Settings.  Thanks for the info.  After I restarted MC, the fonts went back to "normal."  But now I know.

    I have the last version of Boris Red 5 64 Bit 5.6.0.296.  I can't even launch the interface after placing an effect on the timeline.  Error every time.  I may be able to buy the Continuim Upgrade from Red for like 700.00.

    It did work for a short period after Tech Support had me create a New User.  They're still on the email hook with me....

    Will let everyone know if this gets resolved.  Cheers.

    Avid Tech Support had me create a New User.  Boris Red worked.  Next time I launched MC, nothing worked.  Finally deleted all Users and started from scratch.  Everything works now!

    Re: 2019.6 Runtime Errors especially with Boris Red, plus other stuff

    Check that last Resolved post.  Getting the same old Runtime Errors in Media Composer 2019.6 when I try to use anything from Boris Red 5.6.  In Boris, I get "Low Memory-  Close Programs...."  Then MC crashes or closes.

    Boris Red did work when I created an New User in Media Composer and re-maped everything.  The next time I launch MC, and try to use a Boris plugin-  Runtime Error, crash.

    Avid Tech support says "The Boris Red for Avid.avx is not compatible with higher versions of MC.  Last working version was MC 8.9.0.  So why has it been working until 2019.6?

    Boris Fx is updating Red 5.6!  They are creating a new Installer so it works with MC 2019.6.  They even gave me an unlimited license for legacy projects. 

    I did get a deal on a Update/Cross Grade on Contimuum 2019- $400.00

    Thats great news, it's my go-to for effects and titling even though I own BCC. Slow renderer and crashes a lot, but a tool that Avid can't/shouldn't get rid of. I really don't want to go out to AE.

    Where did you hear that they are updating RED 5.6? If so that is great news but everything else online points to RED being discontinued. Any info or timelines are greatly appreciated!

    Hey Robert-

     

    I spoke to Neal from Boris FX sales 1-888-77-BORIS.  He says they're working on an update to Boris Red 5.6 only to make it work with Avid 2019.6. Did not give me any timeline.

    Call them and push.  Good luck.  God bless.

    I have been having problems with BorisRED for years now. I've been in contact with Avid and with Boris...to the point, things go silent. I even had new systems built from scratch have IMMEDIATE issues with Boris. Avid points to Boris. Boris points to Avid.
