Hey guys,
I'm up grading my computer from 32 bit to 64 bit so I can get more RAM to speed things up.
I was wondering if there is a way to save any presets that I've created when I uninstall V.L.
I know I'm gonna have to uninstall Vision lab and then re install it after the up grade.
The thing is, the last time I uninstalled V.L. I lost all the pre sets that I had made and had to start over.
It wouldn't be that hard to do it all over again but I just thought I'd ask to see if anyone knows.
So if you know... Thanks. biggrin

You can export your presets to external .FXpreset_pack files (the same kind of files that you download from the FXhome web site).

In the preset list, right-click on a preset and choose 'Export FXpreset pack'.

Then you can import them later on, e.g. File menu and then 'Import FXpreset pack'.

While you're at it, after you export them you could submit those presets to the website so the rest of us could possibly use them as well.

Thank you both.

Uh Axemen... dude?
I'm not sure if they're good enough to be up there with all of the other presets bro. I guess I'm embarresed that they might not be good enough or actually be usefull to anyone. I could try I suppose.
Okay you convinced me. I'll do some more tinkering with them and see what happens.
Thanks again guys.

Well, if they aren't good enough, they might not get accepted, but if they don't, no one will ever know. So the only ones we will ever know even exist are the ones that are good enough te be accepted. And if they are n't accepted, you'll get an email from the team explaining why, which I've often found helpful in improving the effects.

Are you prepared for everything else to stop working?

Going 64-bit on Windows (XP or Vista) is unfortunately still opening yourself up to a world of pain. In our experience it leads to driver and software incompatibilities and general instability.

If I had a definite need for 64-bit, I think I'd still keep a 32-bit install for general use.

Right on.
Does 64 bit suck on Vista?
Most of my friends told me not to get Vista because they had issues with it or thought that it just plain sucked.
I ended up getting it anyway and have had no problems with it.
I don't know... maybe I got lucky? wink

32-bit Vista is fine, 64-bit Vista can be problematic. Does depend what you're doing with it, though, I expect.

That's cool and thanks for the input.
I just want to speed up renders and stuff like that.
Making and editing films was the only real reason I got this computer in the first place, then I saw the FX home software on tube tape and was like... wow, I really have to buy that!
In my opinion it's the smartest and best thing that I've done for myself in a very long time, and I'm really glad that I did.
Christ in a cartoon, can you imagine me trying to film something without the wealth of knowledge that I've learned since joining this comunity?

My primary editting machine is Vista Home 64. I havent seen any problems in the last year. Not sure what issues Tarn is refering to. 32 bit programs work without any tweeking.

And VisionLab works fine on it.
