Okay, here is a blast from the past. I have a couple of old laptops at home which I only just turned on after a few years. I noticed one of them was installed with VisionLab Studio (along with EffectsLab & CompositeLab). Dang, they sure bring back great memories when I first started out tinkering with VFX.
As I still had the original software, I thought I'd try and install them on my newer computer on which I have Hitfilm installed (the one where I do all my VFX now). But alas........something's not quite right . Whilst it loads and runs............I can't seem to load video media into it (well, it loads, but am unable to edit VFX with it). I even try converting the media into various formats that CompositeLab likes such as AVIs and MOVs, but still nothing seems to work.
I've tried tweaking the Compatibility Mode thing to emulate older Windows systems, but still nothing works. It may of course be that I don't have the right Codecs installed or something, but I'm not really too savvy about those things. So my question is................is there anyway to get CompositeLab to run on my new 64bit Windows 10 modern PC?
Granted, Hitfilm has many more features (more dazzling than it's predecessor), but for nostalgia's sake, there are some minor features that I'd like to play with again . Oh...I can still run it on my old laptop.....but for the sake of ease and convenience, I'd like to run all my programs on my newer PC.
