    Avid FX

    Hello,

    I'm currently using Media Composer v8.5. One of my version of Media Composer I had Avid FX (which I believe was a Boris product), but now I don't see Avid FX in the FX tab between the Setting and Format tab. Did I loose or giveup my Avid FX when I upgraded to a newer version of Media Composer?

    Thanks,
    Terry

    Hello Dave,

    It may be advisable to look at an upgrade to Red 5.5. Works just like Avid FX and can also be run as standalone.  If it is of interest I would ask a questions about your current predicament in the Complete your Suite forum here. Folk from BorisFX keep an eye on that forum. They offer upgrade options from Avid FX and the last couple I times I looked there they also offered a free upgrade to Red 6 when it is released.

    Re: Avid FX

    There are several releases from 5.8.2 to 6.4 in the download center.  I fairly sure all you need is a serial number for the version you want to run.

    As far as I know, it still works (with the proper version, probably has to be 64-bit) with MC 8+ but I haven't tried it personally.

    My previous advice to post in the Complete your Suite forum would still be the best place to establish which version (if any) will work reliably with your version of MC. Along with the resources to know whether you serial number will work with it.

    I didn't disagree.  Knowing where to find installers is pretty important to know, too.

    Avid FX

    It was sugested that I post here in this forum. I'm currently using Media Composr 8.5 and I've noticed that I don't see Avid FX in the FX tab. Not sure which version of Media Composer it came with, but I believe I have Avid FX 5.8. 

    Should'nt I still be able to use Avid FX (which I believe is a Boris product) with my current version of Media Composer?

    Re: Avid FX

    Hi Terry - I'm not sure but I thought Avid FX 5.8 was a 32-bit app which means that it won't work with MC 6.x through 8.5 (which are now 64-bit apps). I could be wrong but this might explain why you don't see Avid FX.

    You might consider $299 for Boris RED which will give you all that Avid FX had plus it now has RT filters (green dot) which previous versions of RED (aka Avid FX) did not have.

    Hopefully someone else here will confirm whether Avid FX 5.8 is 32-bit...

    Re: Avid FX

    Spot on Barkin.....

    Later reease of FX was 64 bit....  

    I would go with Barkins suggestion for the $299 as it is the latest and has stuff FX didnt have.

    Try here.

     

    You might want to contact Boris to make sure they will honor an upgrade from Avid FX (that's how I purchased RED 5.5)...
