Choose "Deactivate Vegas pro 17" (from help menu) - restart, and in activation window make sure that you don't just click "OK" (you probably have the Vegas pro 17 serial code), delete that code and insert the Vegas Post code. Then the other programs will be activated as well.

for the record: I have always been a fan of 'Vegas native' modules that won't suffer the death of software proliferation in an upversioning cycle. Better if Magix aquires bulk licenses and manages those for it's users so we don't have to deal with the petty shipfight each year. Tight integration with transcoding 'file managers' aka production assistant, and tools like HOS alike would make a lot of sense. Tease with a free trial period, and offer a meaningful upgrade path to existing users. Suck in new users with a beesticky free 'lite' / beta as the opposition does. So, rather than one suite, a flexible, 'add-on' options based model would suit me better.

my current Win10/64 system (latest drivers, water cooled) :

Intel Coffee Lake i5 Hexacore (unlocked, but not overclocked) 4.0 GHz on Z370 chipset board,

16GB (2x8GB Corsair Dual Channel DDR4-2133) XMP-3000 RAM,

Intel 600series 512GB M.2 SSD system drive running Win10/64 home automatic driver updates,

4TB 7200RPM NAS HGST data drive,

Intel HD630 iGPU - currently disabled in Bios,

nVidia GTX1060 6GB, always on latest [creator] drivers. nVidia HW acceleration enabled.

main screen 4K/50p 1ms scaled @175%, second screen 1920x1080/50p 1ms.

@bitman, run VEGAS in administrator mode and the registration should succeed. This is a known issue that we're working on a fix for.

@gary-rebholz Thanks for the suggestion, I was out on vacation the last 3 weeks and filming a lot to edit in Vegas and could not try it out! In the mean time I see you have an update 321, I installed it, but ...

  1. The Vegas Post “demo” issue seems solved (not sure it was fixed by 321, or if it was fixed once and for all by starting as administrator as you suggested…)
  2. However, the "demo" issue was also further complicated (and masked by an OFX interop issue): vegas post app crash on launch and is still NOT fixed by 321.

In order to have Vegas post start up (in my case at least) without a Vegas Post crash I had to:

  1. Rename C:\Program Files\BorisFX\ContinuumOFX\12\lib\Continuum_OFX_8Bit.dll to something else
  2. Rename C:\Program Files\Common Files\OFX\Plugins\NewBlueFX\TitlerPro2.ofx.bundle\Contents\Win64\TitlerPro2.ofx to something else
  3. Vegas POST will startup after the renaming actions, but when using certain Boris FX in Vegas POST, it will crash in C:\Program Files\BorisFX\ContinuumOFX\12\lib\Continuum_OFX_Float.dll or will not work because of renaming Continuum_OFX_8Bit.dll

Obviously there is something seriously wrong with the compatibility of Vegas Post and some OFX plugins like newblue and Boris.

PS. I have the latest Boris Continuum installed (Continuum_2019_5_OFX_Hosts_12_5_2_Windows.exe), and submitted a ticket [Ticket#2019090517008357] to Magix.

I discovered that VEGAS Effects won't run with NewBlueFX Titler Pro Express that came bundled with VEGAS Pro 14. I was able to get VEGAS Effects to run by moving C:\Program Files\Common Files\OFX\PluginsMOVED\NewBlueFX\TitlerPro2.ofx.bundle to another location. I have numerous other plugins installed in that folder, including NewBlue ones. VEGAS Effects would run in demo mode with that plugin, before I activated it, which seems strange.

Vegas Post (build 321 and prior build) is currently incompatible with Boris continuum OFX.

When trying to launch Vegas effects, it fails to launch if you have Boris Continuum installed, (even the latest version). Just launching and using Vegas 17 without Vegas effects works with Boris.

I raised a ticket with both the Vegas Team and the Boris team, and they confirmed it is an issue, and I am not alone. The OFX Vegas Post issue probably extends also to newblueFX.

So in short, Vegas 17 Post is a no-no with third party OFX until a fix is found in either the third party OFX or in Vegas Post (or in both), the teams are working on the issue.

As a temporary work-around you can temporary rename (until it is fixed),

the boris OFX plugins (and newblue) from

C:\Program Files\BorisFX\ContinuumOFX\12\lib\Continuum_OFX_8Bit.dll

C:\Program Files\BorisFX\ContinuumOFX\12\lib\Continuum_OFX_Float.dll

C:\Program Files\Common Files\OFX\Plugins\NewBlueFX\TitlerPro2.ofx.bundle\Contents\Win64\TitlerPro2.ofx

Note that you cannot use the Boris effects that depend on these if removed or re-named...

Help guys & gals. I was using Boris FX Continumm before getting VEGAS POST. Found out they don't work well together. Sad but okay. I uninstalled, deactivated, and even removed Boris from registry. Yet, the BCC list continues to appear when I go to add ANY effect. I even deleted the program files (both regular and x86 entries) The BCC effects don't function, but them being listed is annoying beyond words. Anyway to get them off the list?😕

Hey Guys I am little confuse here. If you go into Vegas Effects and click on the Help online Help it takes you to X Support page and if you look over to the upper right and click on either Account or Store it takes you to X FXhome which has HitFilm Studio HitFilm Pro13 etc. First off is these included in Vegas Effects? Second if not if you purchase these FX will they work with Vegas Post?

bitman wrote on 10/7/2019, 12:59 AM

@kmaultsby Vegas Effects is a Hitfilm product adapted to smoothly integrate with Vegas. Hitfilm collaborated with Vegas on this.

Update on Vegas Post (build 321 and prior build) incompatibility with with Boris continuum OFX version 2019 (build 12.x): the new Boris version just released (commercially named 2020, build 13.0) is still incompatible with Vegas Post.

Note that just using Boris 2019 (12.x) or the new Boris 2020 (13.0) in Vegas (without launching POST) still works OK.

I also would like to know the answer to kmaultsby's question. I have noticed vegas affects is almost the same as hitfilm pro. as I was going through the features I was disappointed to find that it was missing mocha. a 45 dollar addon if you have hitfilm express. I think this should have been included but ok. are we out of luck and cannot add this on if we want it? including this in an update would be great.
