Try "Spherize" FX.

Other Option, Cookie Cutter Circle with border and copy of event as underlay. Then zoom in with pan/crop tool on overlay.

@3POINT - Yes, kinda reckoned on that. But there was an FX Plug, maybe out of NB.

@vkmast - Yeah, that’s it. Now how do I get it? I did have it and used it.

Magnifying glass fx is part of NEWBLUE VIDEO ESSENTIALS 4

As mentioned in the newbluefx zendesk link I gave above.

Well, Fellow-VegSters, thanks for all the assistance, however, it has been a complete bust.

CookieCutter: The Cookie Cutter, as I was fearing, brings about an unfortunate parallax result on a moving target. Sorry . . .

NB Essentials 4: Yes, it is/was part of NEWBLUE VIDEO ESSENTIALS 4, but this can't be downloaded as a Demo to test on VP17 and thus my investment.

Elements 3 Energize Cut Away would have been great to demo, but when I download the E3E Demo it is mysteriously converted to NewBlue Stylers3 Ultimate, which I have already, and most certainly doesn't include that Cut Away.

Conclusion: NewBlue no longer sees Magnifyer as a valued Plug - pity . . . .

So, a "Grazie-MagGlass" for VegasPro would be a really nice feature to have.

@Grazie isn't this link of any help?

Grazie wrote on 3/20/2020, 2:38 AM

@vkmast - My apologies VK, yes you did "help", and in the 14-day DEMO mode VE IV it's exactly what I'd want.

But then, wishing to find out the price, I attempted to purchase it, I get this from Digital River, the 3rd party payment company:

"Product does not exist! At least one of the requested products does not exist."

So, the correct product, and tested but no way of determining how much to go forward and purchase.

@Grazie to confirm, was it Digital River that you got trying the Producer Planet (a MAGIX company?) link?

Or this one ?

@Grazie can you try the NBFX legacy vault?

@Grazie can you try the NBFX legacy vault?

@vkmast - Wow! I didn't know that existed. I should've known you would 😉 . . Always trust the VK! - Anyways, there's still no way of checking the functionality within VP17 - there's no current DEMO.


vkmast wrote on 3/20/2020, 5:02 AM

So I gather that the Windows download link (see your screengrab) does not work as a current demo.

@vkmast - The Vault or the Previous?

Dexcon wrote on 3/20/2020, 5:06 AM

@Grazie ... I've got NBFX VE IV from 6 years ago (build 140722) which I just installed on my laptop (trial mode) to see if Magnifying Glass works in VP17. It does as per the following screen dump:

Grazie wrote on 3/20/2020, 5:08 AM

@vkmast - My ScreenGrab gives the DEMO, but that DEMO only supplies the Digital River option which in turn does NOT no about the DEMO. The Vault supplies a method to PAY but does NOT supply a DEMO to check if it works in VP17. You got me?

Grazie wrote on 3/20/2020, 5:10 AM

@Dexcon - Yes, yes, yes... I’ve got that too. But the link to determine the price comes back NOT KNOWN! I love you guys 😂

vkmast wrote on 3/20/2020, 5:17 AM

@Grazie thanks, that's what I wanted I know. How about ?

Grazie wrote on 3/20/2020, 5:32 AM

@vkmast - I did email Caleb and Edward three days back. Not heard back. I then came here to talk with my chums, to get the Ball Rollin’.


I just wanged off an email using your link. Tick tock tick tock......

Dexcon wrote on 3/20/2020, 5:57 AM

@Grazie ... there is a Magnify plugin in FXHome Ignite, but it's very basic in comparison to NBFX's plugin, the latter having shape, AR and border options which are lacking in the Ignite plugin.

Grazie wrote on 3/20/2020, 6:00 AM

@Dexcon - Yes, quite. What MagFX does is quite organic and stunning.
