Q: Where are the Bonus Features and Fx that comes with Movie Studio Platinum Suite ?
Answer: Whenever you buy the Full Production Suite Version of Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10, 11 or the Brand New "Movie Studio Platinum 12 Suite", there are many bonuses which need to be installed separately to the Main Programs.

To get your Bonus Material installed you need to manually open up the 2nd Installation Disc for Vegas and then start opening up all the folders until you find something that says Bonus Material or NewBlue.
I have not bought a Boxed Version of Vegas Pro or Movie Studio for many years now. Buying the download version takes the pain out of installing Vegas, because you receive nice little downlaod links to all the separate components and programs - but that isn't much help to you !
The NewBlue Fx plugins will be in the form that looks like this:
Double click this file and it will install all the NewBlue Fx, Transtions and the NewBlue Titler.
There will also be another Bonus Music Folder.
Version 12 will look something like this:
You can drag this into a new folder on your computer.
There will be a tutorial folder that looks like this:
Magic Bullet Looks
There will be TWO program versions that look like this:
Double click these files to Install
