    Red Giant Colorsuite II confict with PP7

    jwffvm Level 1

      This is the first program I've Color Corected with Colorista and MBL & after putting finishing touches on an hour program Friday, I shut down for the night.  When I restarted Sat morning, Premier CC crashed and I couldn't get it to open my finished show project.  Tried opening two different autosaves of same project with no success, even got one off my time machine and it too wouldn't open.

       

      The only thing that would allow me to open the project was to uninstall the Color suite.  The project opens fine without Colorsuite II installed.  I reinstalled Colorsuite II, project would not open, so I uninstalled again and now must go through an hour show for color correction using the standard PP color correction tools.

       

      Has anyone run into this before?  Is there a solution other than that I've tried?  I really like the controls and options I get in Colorista II and MBL.

       

      thx...jw

            The plug-ins seem to be working fine here.

              Mine were working fine too, until I shut down.  Walt Biscardi opined that it was MLB that was causing the problem because he has had a lot of grief with MBL in PP 7.  I disabled everything but Colorista II and was able to open my project which had retained my previous Colorista II work and I'm able to use it which makes me very happy. 

               

              MBL will not play in this project.  I'm starting another program on Tuesday and will try MBL again, but I think there's a bug in MBL, particularly since you can't use it on an adjustment layer now, or at least many with a MAC cannot.

               

              I saw a work around for Windows on the MBL forum, but when I tried a similar workaround for Mac it didn't work.  I really like the MBL program, it's quick, powerful & easy, so hopefully they'll have an update soon.

               

              Have you been using MBL on long form programs?  All of mine are 1 hr television shows, so i have no experience with MBL in shorter for programs.  I think Walter's experience is more in the long form as well.

               

              thx..jw

                I haven't used it on a whole project in a while, since I got my GH2.  It's video doesn't need the same tweaks as my DV video did.  So I've only used it on shorter clips since CC came out.
