Bug: BCC Title Studio + image = black screen or flipped image

To be specific, it takes an image that is a different size from the project to trigger this bug.

It looks like there’s a problem in that if the image that TS is applied to, doesn’t match the project dimensions, TS/Vegas either flips or blacks out the image.

My project settings are 1280x720x8 and if I apply TS to the image attached at https://forum.borisfx.com/t/vegas-pro-title-studio-jpeg-black-screen/8620, it either blacks it out or flips it, depending on the fx chain.

Boris has looked at the issue and thinks that it's a Vegas problem. Hopefully by reporting it to both, they'll both be up to speed by the time someone starts looking at the issue.

There's a sample project at https://forum.borisfx.com/t/vegas-pro-title-studio-jpeg-black-screen/8620

I'm following this thread in the Boris forum. I see the same thing here also. Boris said they are looking into this and will report where the problem lays, VP or Boris.

There is a workaround for this, but still you should be able to add Boris titles.

@Reyfox yeah, that's pretty much what I said

@lan-mLMC That's interesting. For this case the steps are match and resize so the image isn't cropped.

Tagging Ian's answer as a solution since it's the simplest workaround so far

Right click image in Pan/Crop, then select match output. It will be OK.

Thanks, Ian - very helpful.
