Is there any way to install VST3 plugins into VEGAS Pro 18?

Is there any way to install VST3 plugins into VEGAS Pro 18, since seemingly they don't seem to work? I'm trying to install iZotope's RX 10 plugins since I like using them for audio. I would rather have them be built into VEGAS rather than have to edit my audio in a different program, making the process way more tedious. If there isn't a way to install VST3, then does anyone know if it's possible to get a VST2 version of iZotope RX? Thanks in advance.

RX10 plugins are VST3 only and this was clearly stated on iZotope's RX10 webpage. Now that RX11 has been released, the same plugin support information is available on RX11's webpage.

As the RX10 audio editor is presumably both VST2 and VST3 compatible (RX11's audio editor is stated to support both VST2 and VST3), try making your RX10 audito editor the preferred audio editor in Options/Preferences/Audio (tab) and then R click on an audio event and select "Open in Audio Editor" or "Open Copy in Audio Editor" and then use RX10 to use the VST3 plugins.

Another option is to upgrade to Vegas Pro 21 which supports VST3.

But what i did back then to allow Vegas 19 and earlier to work with VST3 plugins quite well, was to use a free vst3 to vst2 shell Converter. You can do a search for it if you wanna go that route.

If you also have Sound Forge, the pertinent event or file can be opened in SF from within Vegas (right-click event and select "Open copy with audio editor". Most Magix versions of Sound Forge support VST-3 plug-ins.
