Track FX problem

Azy wrote on 2/15/2021, 12:25 AM

I have just bought Sony Vegas pro 18.0 and I tried opening any Sony plugin but I keep getting the same response which is "The plugin could not be run, One or more components required to run this plugin may be missing. If a hardware key (dongle) is required to run this plugin, ensure that it is properly installed. The COM object failed to initialize." however I can run third party ones such as eFx chrousflanger. What do I do?

and I tried opening any Sony plugin

But I don't have any Sony audio- or video plugin, but a lot of Vegas Plugins like a lot of the users here.
Do you think we can help you here?

Did you buy from a legitimate MAGIX Vegas Pro or reseller website? If the website you purchased from specifically called the product Sony Vegas Pro 18, it is almost certainly a scam/pirate website. Why? Because Sony has not been involved with Vegas Pro for nearly 5 years, the last Sony Vegas Pro being version 13. All Vegas Pro releases from version 14 have been under the MAGIX company umbrella and there is no longer aany mention of Sony in the product name. There have been no Sony plugins since version 13.

I may have mistakenly wrote Sony, I apologize. I bought it off the legitimate MAGIX Vegas Pro

Is the pertinent folder where the plug-ins reside listed as a default or alternate VST search folder in "Options> Preferences> VST Effects". Many VST <.dll> files are put in the 'Program files> Steinberg' folder by default. I not know about Sony plug-ins.

@rraud That was the first thing I tried as I saw your earlier response to another person a while back. However I do not have such Steinberg folder and there are only default ones.

Are you referring to video or audio plugins - or both? That is, there are no video and/or audio plugins appearing at all. Or if you have an old Sony version of Vegas Pro (13 or earlier), are you referring to plugins that came with Sony Vegas Pro or were 'extras' to the Sony VP purchase back at the time?

If there are no plugins at all, perhaps try resetting Vegas Pro back to default settings as outlined in https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/faq-how-can-i-reset-vegas-pro-to-default-settings--104646/

If the plugins are from an old Sony Vegas Pro install, there is every likelihood that they won't work in MAGIX versions of Vegas Pro (14 and onwards) because of coding changes in 3rd party plugins to reflect the ownership change from Sony to MAGIX.

Many of the VST audio Fx are 32 bit and are in "Program files (x86)" VST folders. Check Vegas VST search for those as well.

'Some' Direct X plug-ins from SCS (Sony) versions of Vegas (and Sound Forge) will not be available in Magix Vegas 64 bit versions.

@rraud all I can find in my program files(86x) for vegas is shared plugins and then help files

rraud wrote on 2/21/2021, 11:24 AM

@Azy, designate that folder in the aforementioned Vegas' VST folder search setting, since that is where the Vegas audio plug-ins live.
