Another guy pulling his hair out over NewBlueFX was created by cirrus2000

This looks like a great place to ask about this subject! I've been going a little batty over this....

I have used Movie Studio for years, but have never really bothered looking into the NewBlueFX transitions etc. I've just re-installed Movie Studio 16 Platinum on my upgraded hard drive (OK, SSD) and figured I would also install and investigate the (included) transitions and Stylizers (?).

I installed everything, and everything seemed to go well. However, the NBFX products are nowhere to be found. Yes, I know about the new folder view, yes I know about using the FX browser to find all those sorted, hard to find plugins.



I run the "NewBlueFX Application Manager" and get a window saying that Transitions 5 Ultimate and Stylizers 5 Imagine are "current". I would be happy to try manually telling Movie Studio where to find the plug-ins, but have no idea how to do so...



Am I doing something wrong, or is there something not right with the installation? So confused...

Would appreciate any help, thoughts, suggestions, etc!

Hi Kev - welcome to the MSZ forum :)

If you click on the Third Party folder instead, this will show you all the NBFX that are part of the Stylizers 5 Imagine package that came with Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 16. These FX are also visible in your screen shot of the OFX folder. The Stylizers 5 Imagine FX begin with Air Brush and finish with Pencil Rubbing - there are 10 in total.

If you click on Air Brush for example, you will see a readout at the bottom of the window that confirms it is one of the NBFX.


You can do a similar thing to find Transitions 5 Ultimate video transitions.
Overlap 2 pieces of media(video) on the Vegas timeline and then right-click in the overlapped transition area.
Select Transition/Insert other



The Plug-In Chooser - Transition window will now open.
You may see the NewBlue Transitions window, but if you don't open the Third Party folder instead.
Click on each transition and once again you will see a read out at the bottom that confirms it is a NBFX transition.



Regards
Derek

Thank you so much! I was sure I had seen something along the lines of "NBFX" or somesuch at the start of the effect names, in other screen shots, etc. I am very embarrassed, and appreciate the assistance in recognizing what was right in front of my face! :whistle:

Cheers!

I'm glad you now know where all the NBFX are located, but you have nothing to be embarrassed about.

The makers of Vegas Movie Studio are the ones who should be embarrassed, for making it so difficult to find FX folders in v16 - they should never have removed Folder View from the Video FX and Transitions windows !!!
