Vegas Movie Studio integration

I have Vegas Movie Studio 13 and I see HitFilm and Ignite FX in my lists. I have just installed Vegas MS 14 but the effects do not appear. Has support for Ignite been removed?

 EDIT: Looks like the answer is........ It only works in Vegas MS 13 by some kind of mistake.

    Ignite works in Vegas 14 for me. Not MS but there really is not much difference. Hitfilm integration in VP14 not so much without some manual editing of a specific install file.

    Another question is which version of Ignite do you have? With the ownership change from Sony to Magix, and the way Vegas loads plug-ins and scripts* a lot of pre-14 Vegas add-ons required updating to work in 14.

    Under Sony, Vegas looks for "Sony Vegas" in the plug-in or script. Now (v14+) it's just "Vegas," but an update needed to be coded. This also applies to very old (pre Vegas 5) add-ons which were coded as "Sonic Foundry Vegas"). 

    Probably a question for support.

    Ignite works in VMS 14, although in some places the effects show as Hitfilm and in others as Ignite. Official response when I queried it was: "not officially supported", but they work, so...good enough for me. :)
    The names are correct in Vegas Pro 14.

    @Palacono, I have VMS13 and the effects do show as HitFilm and Ignite in different places. However, in VMS14, they do not show at all.

    @Triem23, I have Ignite Pro 2017. Should I install Ignite Express? Or perhaps reinstall Pro 2017?
