Upgraded my video software a few weeks ago. Major conflict with my current plugins (the stuff that makes the cool transitions and special effects) and it wouldn't load. I know what the problem is. I bought all of these plugins as they were released from NewBlueFX. Then Corel started adding them to their software upgrades (ultimate). Between the original NewBlueFX and the Corel FX, there are duplicates. And they do not play well together.
The problem is figuring out which ones are the duplicates. Is "chromakeypro" the same as "chromakey"? It's trial and error. Remove one, start the program? Does it load? No? Remove that plugin and re-start the program. Does it load? Yes, okay, on to the next plugin. I wish there was an easy way to see which ones it crashes on.
Anyway, the only way to get the version eight to run was to completely uninstall it, the re-install and start over. Except I started getting an error message at re-install. Contacted Corel, they got back to me. Didn't feel like doing it right then, so put it off. Started working on it this morning, they sent me the wrong file to install. So, while I was waiting for them to send me the correct one, I managed to get it re-installed. Just the basic at this point.
But my working version, version six, doesn't work. After fooling with it for a couple of hours, I decided to uninstall it and start from scratch reloading the plugins.
Honestly, I'd rather be washing floors, today would have been a great day to clean. But I can't do videos without the software.
Right now I'm doing a defrag of the hard drive, then will try the re-install again tomorrow.
