This tutorial is only for users of Pinnacle Studio version 9-15. For Studio version greater than 15, see "Install our free HFX transitions in Pinnacle Studio".

After you have created an HFX effect, saved, and closed Easy FX (in Hollywood FX), your effect is not included in the Pinnacle Studio album transitions.
Similarly, after extracting an HFZ file (by double clicking on the file), the effect does not appear under the Pinnacle Studio transitions tab.

The reason is simple: Easy_FX and Studio are two separate programs and Studio does not monitor Easy_FX. Changing effects in Easy_FX is not automatically taken into account in the Studio transitions album. It is at this level that you will act as an intermediary to help these two programs to communicate and get in sync. All procedures described below require Studio to recreate a new transitions album file that will include the changes to Easy_FX.

Step 1: General

The procedures that we will show you can be classified into two categories:

  • Manually, to do by yourself and at your own risk.
  • Automated procedures using batch files. (In computing, batch processing is the execution of a series of programs ("jobs") on a computer, according to Wikipedia). The batch files have a .bat file extension.

Each procedure has its own advantages and disadvantages:

  •  Manual procedures can be a source of error for inexperienced users. On the other hand, they are more flexible and may be necessary on non-standard installations (other than the "C:\" drive for example);
  • Automated procedures using *.bat files can be used on standard installations. (Studio installed on the C:\ drive and in the default folders) and may require using the Windows Administrator mode and a particular setting for the User Account Control (UAC) for each version of Windows.

In both cases, the folder that contains the Studio transitions album will be recreated and updated.

Step 2 : Procedure for AVID and versions equal or greater to Studio 16 without a S11-S15 version installed on the same partition

This procedure is described in our tutorial "Install our free HFX transitions in Pinnacle Studio.

Step 3 : Procedure for AVID and equal or greater to Studio 16 versions with a 11-15 version installed on the same partition

This procedure is described in our tutorial "Install our free HFX transitions in Pinnacle Studio.

Step 4 : Procedure for Studio 11,12,14 and 15
  1. Manual Procedure:
  1. Close Pinnacle Studio and Easy FX Editor;
  2. Depending on your operating system:
    • For Windows 7(64) and Vista(64) :
      clear both EffectCachexxx and EditorCachexxx (xxx = numbers) files in the folder :
      ..Users\Public\Documents\Pinnacle\Program Files (X86)\Pinnacle\Studio 11 (or 12 or 14 or 15) \programs\Plugins\RTFx
      Don't worry, these files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
    • For Windows 7(32) and Vista(32) :
      clear both EffectCachexxx and EditorCachexxx (xxx = numbers) files in the folder :
      ..Users\Public\Documents\Pinnacle\Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 11 (or 12 or 14 or 15) \programs\Plugins\RTFx
      Don't worry, these files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
    • For Windows XP:
      clear both EffectCachexxx and EditorCachexxx (xxx = numbers) files in the folder :
      ..Documents and Settings\all users\Documents\Pinnacle\Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 11 (or 12 or 14 or 15)\Programs\Plugins\RTFx
      Don't worry, these files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
  3. Delete ALL files in the folder:
    ..Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 11 (or 12 or 14 or 15)\Plugins\RTFx\HfxXML forXP, Vista(32) and W7(32);
    ..Program Files (X86)\Pinnacle\Studio 12 (or 14 or 15)\Plugins\RTFx\HfxXML for Vista(64) and W7(64).
    (but DO NOT delete the folder);
    Don't worry, these files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio.
  Pinnacle Studio 11 / Pinnacle Studio 12 / Hollywood FX
  1. Automated procedure:

Execution of Repare-HFX-11-12-14-15.bat ( created and maintained by  Le Papy and DV FX) , downloadable from our website, automates the tasks described above in order to avoid the tedious task of manipulation of files after installing a HFZ file.
Turn off the "User Account Control" to run the batch program - or set to zero - depending on your version of Windows. Otherwise you will get error messages and the program will not perform certain tasks. See "Installation of Declic Video transitions: A to Z"
Save the file on your hard drive and run it as running from this website may prevent proper operation. To run a batch file, you only have to double click on the file name.

Then open Studio to rebuild the transitions album.

Step 5 : Procedure for Studio 10
  1. Manual Procedure:
  1. Close Pinnacle Studio and Easy FX Editor;
  2. Depending on your operating system:
    • For Studio 10.7 and under,
      clear both EffectCachexxx and EditorCachexxx (xxx = numbers) files in the folder :
      ..Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 10\Plugins\RTFx
      Don't worry, these files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
    • For Studio 10.8 with Windows VISTA,
      clear both EffectCachexxx and EditorCachexxx (xxx = numbers) files in the folder :
      .. Users\Public\Documents\Pinnacle\Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 10\programs\Plugins\RTFx
      These files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
    • For Studio 10.8 with Windows XP,
      clear both EffectCachexxx and EditorCachexxx (xxx = numbers) files in the folder :
      ..Documents and Settings\all users\Documents\Pinnacle\Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 10\Programs\Plugins\RTFx
      As stated above, these files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
  3. Delete ALL files in the folder:
    ..Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 10\Plugins\RTFx\HfxXML (but DO NOT delete the folder).
    Don't worry, these files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
Pinnacle Studio 10 and HFX
  1. Automated procedure:

Running Repare-HFX-10.bat ( created and maintained by cr1, Le Papy, DV FX) , downloadable from our website, automates the tasks described above in order to avoid the monotonous task of editing files after installing a HFZ.
Turn off the "User Account Control" to run the batch program - or set to zero - depending on your version of Windows. Otherwise you will get error messages and the program will not perform certain tasks. See "Installation of Declic Video transitions: A to Z"
Save the file on your hard drive and run it as running from this web site may prevent proper operation. To run a batch file, you only have to double click on the file name.

Then open Studio to rebuild the new transitions album.

Step 6: Procedure for Studio 9
  1. Manual Procedure:
  1. Close Studio and Easy FX Editor;
  2. Delete the effects.org file located in the folder:
    Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Pinnacle\Hollywood FX for Studio .
    Don't worry, these files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
  3. Also delete the AlbumOrg.org file located in the folder:
    Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Pinnacle\Hollywood FX for Studio .
    These files will be recreated automatically next time you start Pinnacle Studio;
    Then open Studio 9 to rebuild the transitions album.
Pinnacle Studio 9 and Hollywood FX
  1. Automated procedure:
    There is no automated procedure for Studio 9.

 

This shows why we still prefer doing the installation in the default C:\drive and the default folders. It can really simplify your life!

For under Studio 12 version, also refer to :Tip-2 My HFX thumbnails in Studio are black

Bill

Bill, the transitions should appear in Studio at the bottom, just before 3rd party transitions. Apply strictly the information provided in this tutorial. You can also try the "Tip-2 My HFX thumbnails in Studio are black", it will help you to solve the problem.

I just began using S-11 plus after many years with S 9. While loooking for answers to some questions I came accross the Declic site and am very glad I did.

I just downloaded some HFx files and followed procedure to install. When I ran Studio they did not show up n my transitions list so I followed the above procedure. I doing so I found a few things that I need to ask.

Will I have to follow this procedure everytime I download and install new files?

When I tried to use the Hfxrepair.bat for Windows XP I found the batch file to be incorrect. The original script had the following line in it:
cd\documents and settings\all users\documents\programs\pinnacle\studio 11\programs\plugins\RTFx
when in fact the correct line for my system is:
cd\documents and settings\all users\documents\pinnacle\studio 11\programs\plugins\RTFx
The originsl line had an extra "\programs\" in it.
Just want to pass this along.
Thanks for a great site.

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Saturday, December 1, 2007 3:46 AM
Yes, unfortunately, you will have to follow this procedure everytime you download a new transition. For the time being, no other possibility (if we find a solution, we will inform you through the newsletter, do not hesitate to subscribe).
For the path, it is maybe due to your installation, as we have tested it on various configuration and the path is correct. I have just checked it again. I use the bat file for my own use daily.

I tried the above instructions and I trie coping the images and effects of version 5.5 into v6. most of the declic are working none of david star fx are working. Any suggestions? Thanks Candace

candace2605 By # candace2605 @ Saturday, December 29, 2007 1:41 PM
I forgot to move the objects. They all are working fine. David Star transitions are also working.
Thanks Candace

Please take note of the revised batch file available for Studio 11 and Studio 10 (if you run Windows Vista). It should solve all problems recently encountered by many of you (if you have any problem with these files, please use our form on the contact page for assistance regarding this specific problem).

I am using Studio 11 ultimate and I downloaded some free HFX transitions.
The problem is that they appear in section Declic but they are not visible - every window for each transition is black. So I have to open all windows to find the one that I want. Thanks for your answer.
LUCY

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Wednesday, January 23, 2008 1:08 AM
Lucy,
Did you already applied the appropriate tip and trick: "Tip-2 My HFX thumbnails in Studio are black" (you will find it in HFX tutorials, tips & tricks). It should solve your problem.

Hello. I have Pinnacle Studio Plus 11. I had the serial for a few packs of the HFX. But when I entered them it did say: Ripples and Circles HFX are now unlocked. I tried your thing here and they still didnt appear. So I am very puzzled. Please help.
~That guy~

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Wednesday, January 30, 2008 9:05 AM
Hello That Guy,
The tips explained here are only valid for free HFX we propose. It is not valid for HFX purchased and unlocked transition. Please contact Pinnacle support for your issue.

I'm using Studio 11.0.0.5082 (I know I should upgrade). When I go to the Hollywood FX directory and double click on Easy_FX.exe it give me a dialog box that states that Easy FX Standalone Editor has stopped working (Vista).

On another computer I'm running XP and the Easy_FX.exe opens fine.

Any suggestions?

elc0chin0 By # elc0chin0 @ Monday, February 11, 2008 9:31 AM
I think I discovered the problem. Apparently HFX is not automatically associated with all of Studio 11 install apps. You have to go to the directory where HFX is located and click on the HFXSerial.exe and enter in the key you got when you registered the product.

A little strange but..

I would suggest that Pinnacle in the future have a method of getting to the FX editor from the main studio it just seems logical.

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Tuesday, February 12, 2008 1:55 AM
Dear elc0chin0,

Please take time to read the various FAQ, tutorials, tips and tricks in this website. You will discover plenty of tricks to help you. Some of your questions are already answered in HFX FAQ.
Studio and Easy FX Editor are already linked together (associated). Otherwise, we would have make a tips & tricks por tutorial. I assume that you have some installation problem. I would be very grateful if you can join one of the forum mentionned on the home page, you will have many people ready to help you sovling your specific problem. As far as I know, you do not encounter any problems with the tutorial here.

Hi, I have Studio 11 Plus release 11.00.5082.
I have installed all your free transitions but while I see all of them in Fx Editor, I have just a few in Studio11. I have investigaed in FAQ and tried all suggested solutions:
- reinstall code
- cancel EffectCache and EditorCache files
- cancel all items in HfxXML fold but not improved the situation.
- I have also tryed to cancel AlbumOrg.org and Effect.org
- I have also tried with Fx-Editor saving the transition with a different name in a different folder but nothing to do.

I have tryed to change the transition using HFX editor in Studio. It changes and allows me the transition I selected but it keeps on not being shown in the Studio transition window

Where did I miss ?
(in Studio9 and Studio10 everything was perfect)

Thanks for helping
B rgds, Andrea

andrea By # andrea @ Wednesday, February 13, 2008 8:00 AM
Hi,
I have reinstalled all the transitions directly from the webpage (not saving in my pc (as before) then installing the same once saved) and, don't ask me why, once cleaned EffectCache, EditorCache and HfxXML, I have all the transitions.
B rgds, Andrea

Gary By # Gary @ Sunday, March 16, 2008 4:15 AM
Each time I save a custom transition in FX for Studio 6, another icon for it show up in my custom transitions folder, e.g. if I save one called MyTransition and later modify it and save it, there are 2 icons shown. Each time I save it another shows up. If I delete one of them, they are all deleted. How do I clean up the folder that is displayed?

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, March 16, 2008 5:14 AM
Hello Gary,
We are about to publish a FAQ related to cleaning HFX (deleting a HFX in fact). In the meantime, I propose that each time you save a transition, you use "SAVE" instead of "SAVE AS", it will avoid duplicate entry. Stay tuned through the newsletter for the "HFX FAQ - How to delete HFX".

I'm trying to organized my transition. In FX everything moves in my folders the way I placed them but when I open Studio It will make three folder from my one. One for each volume. How can I avoid this.?

Donny By # Donny @ Tuesday, March 25, 2008 12:52 PM
Just an update from yesterday. I am Using Studio Plus 10.7 with XP and I have FX Mega

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, May 4, 2008 1:56 PM
Donny,
Sorry for answering so late... Some people have the same problem than you, and currently nobody found a solution. We may ask Remy Felhmann or Markk655 to have a look to it, they are a king for this kind of problems !
In general, it won't happen if you do not rename the HFX. If you rename them and use a number lower than the latest HFX i nyour collection, you may experience this problem. Nevertheless, it is not systematic.

I am not seeing any of the transitions in Studio 12. Have any fixes for that yet?
thanks

Le Papy By # Le Papy @ Tuesday, July 1, 2008 11:55 PM
Hello Andrew,
There is currently a known problem of Pinnacle. The installation of Studio 12 goes well if Studio 11 was uninstalled. Pinnacle is trying to find a solution to install Studio 12 even with Studio 11 already installed. It is expected that Pinnacle is the solution.

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Monday, July 7, 2008 2:13 AM
For all of you having problems with Studio 12 and HFX, and as mentionned by Le Papy, please wait a little bit. Pinnacle is working on a workaround and we will keep you informed as usual through the newsletter of any update.
Thanks for your patience,
DV FX

Hello, I have Studio 11, the effects are in the folder HFX 6 see them all, but those who are in the folder HFX 5 and Mega, Pro, declic and free, I can not see, even when they are released and installed. Do you describe the procedure but nothing. What can I do?. Thank you and excuse my English

Etienne Kinnaer By # Etienne Kinnaer @ Wednesday, July 9, 2008 2:08 AM
Monche,
If you have Hollywood version 5 and 6 on the same computer it means you have Studio 9 installed beside studio 11.
Wich operating system you have?
Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista?
I supose that you have Vista, I think that Hollywood 5.0 does not work with vista, and that makes you see the effects in Hollywood 6 and not in Hollywood 5
Kind regards,
Etienne

Le Papy By # Le Papy @ Wednesday, July 9, 2008 2:34 AM

Gracias Etienne, Mi sistema operativo es Windows Xp con Sp2, nunca he instalado studio 9, tengo studio 11, los HFX 5 son los pro y los del mega pack, ademas de los declic que se instalan dentro de studio pero en una carpeta diferente a los HFX6, y son los que no puedo ver en studio 11. Ademas cuando utilizo un hfz este se descomprime pero terminando da un error sobre todo con los objetos. Espero que me puedan enterder. Mil gracias

Can anyone tell me, I have Hollywood FX basic, version 6, all transitions are visible and usable in that, but when I try to open them in Studio11, they all have a watermark in the center, or they just don't appear at all. Can I make them work in Studio, since they are in FX I shouldn't have to buy them again, right?

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Thursday, September 4, 2008 9:33 PM
Hello stupidinseattle,

Please have a look to the "HFX FAQ" page, there are plenty of good stuff and answers there. You should be able to resolve your problem. Take note:
- download only HFX marked as [HFX Basic]
- download the "unlock xxx" which will add HFX
- download and replace your InstallHFZ.exe file (adding HFX as well)
All packages are present on our website.
If you still have problems, please use one of the forums mentionned on the home page.

Dear Sir,
I purchased Avid Liquid 7 Pro from a reputable stockist about 17 months ago.
When I bought the software it came with The Avid Liquid Big Splash Bundle.
This included
Title.Deko Pro
Hollywood FX Pro
Magic Bullet Movie Looks

The unlock serial codes do not seem to work and although I have sent various emails to Avid, they do not seem to have solved the problem so far. Their email thread system times out after 48 hours and it takes forever to explain what I thought would be a simple solution to them.

They did however give me a new code for Title Deko Pro which is now working.
I can not get the effects working (ie Hollywood FX and others) or Smartsound or Magic Bullet.

Can you please help me?
Regards,
Dave T

Hi,

I just upgraded to Studio 12 and uninstalled studio 11 then I installed the HFX 6.0.

The HFX 6.0 Transitions still don't appear in the transitions tab after using the Repare-HFX-S12-XP.bat batch file.

I tried to manually delete the files mentioned but the EffectCache.xxxxxx and EditorCache.xxxxx are not in the specified directory. I deleted the contents of the hfxxml anyway and when I ran studio 12, the transitions still did not appear.

What did I do wrong? Please help!

Have a nice day,

Irene By # Irene @ Saturday, January 3, 2009 12:29 PM
Hi there,

I have been reading (and applying) all your tips and tricks. But I still have some problems. I am using Studio plus 12 with vista. And I have installed the bonus CD from studio 10. I have used studio 8,9 and 10 on another PC.
After your tips I am able to see the transitions I have downloades from the declic site (eg flags), but I still cannot see all the other series. Like family, sports etc. I can not even see the locked transitions and when I go to the Pinnacle site (more transitions) it seems like there is not anything to download (which is true, because I have installed the Bonus CD).
I hope my story makes sense to you. The biggest problem is that I can't see all the different transition folders.
Hope you can help me.

PS: your problem is completely different than the one described in this tip & trick, because I never heard anybody having this kind of problem (unable to see transitions folders). This tutorial only deal with Declic Video FX transitions, and not Pinnacle transitions folders. I would say that you had a problem during install ? Can you please contact us through Pinnacle forum ?

Thx.

It works for Studio 12 ultimate. ;-)

JefUK By # JefUK @ Friday, February 6, 2009 9:49 AM
This tip works well with Vista 64.

It is essential to fully read the instuctions and turn off the UAC - otherwise it will not work!

Thanks very much for the batch file, Declic.

JefUK By # JefUK @ Friday, February 6, 2009 9:53 AM
Déclic, thanks for your help on this - re-reading your website has enabled
me to solve the problem!

After my previous e-mail to you I had a problem with my new PC (unrelated to Studio 12/HFX) and had to do a complete reinstall. When I eventually
reinstalled Studio 12, transferred previous HFX Mega content and installed
SmartSound, only the standard Studio 12 HFX effects would show in the album.

I then re-read your instructions and saw that for Vista the UAC had to be
turned off! After doing this and executing your batch file all the HFX Mega
Transitions were visible.

I then installed the HFZ files from my old PC (with UAC off) and then ran
your batch file. My personal HFX folder and the transitions were then also
visible and worked correctly.

Thanks for your help and for providing the batch file.

after running Repare-HFX-S11-Vista.bat it dosen't work and said that my installation is not standard...what does that means?

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, June 14, 2009 7:36 AM
Hello eian,

It means that your installation has not been processed through the usual standard way (you probably installed HFX/Studio in a separate hard disk or in a non standard folder). In such case, we can not provide a batch file which is working, so you have to follow the MANUAL method described in this tutorial. Keep us informed.

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, August 2, 2009 7:56 AM
Hello Sahil,

You probably have a graphic card problem (try to update your driver), or slow computer (which cause problem when rendering HFX). Please do not start a thread here in this comment section, try one of the Avid Liquid forum. Thanks,

Gene By # Gene @ Wednesday, August 12, 2009 9:42 AM

I tried both tips listed to make transitions appear rather than show as "black" and I still see them as black. Also, some of them have an "unlock box and the Pinnacle" logo watermark.

I did the following
:
Open the transition and click edit, do nothing and close Pinnacle and re-open

and

For Studio 12 : --> Repare-HFX-S12-XP.bat

DJ M By # DJ M @ Tuesday, August 18, 2009 12:04 PM
Hey I followed every direction in the tutorial but it still doesnt show up. I donwloaded Pinnacle Hollywood FX 5 and 2669 Effects (2003-2009) but none of them show up

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Wednesday, August 19, 2009 12:06 AM
@ Gene,

As you can see in this comment section, some other people already had your problem. But it has always been solved by *STRICTLY* following the tutorial. Sometimes, we forget one step. Try to repeat it. Also download a new transition, it might help as well.
Concerning unlock, try our 3 HFX unlock (search for keyword unlock in the Free HFX page), also check our HFX FAQ (there is a utility called InstallHFZ.exe - FAQ is called "How can all the Hollywood FX transitions be unlocked ?"). Have you also tried: Tip-2 My HFX thumbnails in Studio are black ?
If nothing work, please contact us through the contact page, or through forums.

@ DJ M,
Same tips than for Gene, carefully go step by step through the tutorial, you will see that they will show up (do not forget to *CLOSE* Pinnacle Studio before launching the batch file).

Problem - NON LEGIBLE THUMBNAILS

After reinstalling my operating system and studio TWICE the thumbnails for HFX 3 are sill not legible ! Pinnacle is sending me a new disc as they decided that the problem is with the execution . Pinnacle had sent me a replacement for my HFX 3 disc but nothing changed !
Used Windows "un installer" to remove HFX 3 ( Did NOT work - HFX 3 remained functioning in Studio 12 and in the HFX Editor ) Don't know why ??????
Read your FAQ on deleting individual transitions in HFX and deleted one by one all the transitions for HFX 3 in the Editor
Deleted each group heading in the Editor
Checked Studio 12 and all transitions where still listed for HFX 3
Ran your REPAIR - HFX 12 file
Ran "Ccleaner" software to eliminate junk files that are not valid
Ran a software for REGISTRY repairs etc. ( I use Registry Booster 2 )
Reloaded Disc containing HFX 3
SUCCESS !!!!
Pinnacle was not able to fix but your little program did the final trick !!
I have to keep saying on how you have added to the joy of a great hobby !! I hope you will let everyone know that !!

Gert.

hi frnd i have did all this butt still HFX effects do not appear in Studio.

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, January 24, 2010 2:42 AM
Hello barsaat,

Out of the 70 comments left in this section, half of them (35) appeared to be problems identical to yours. After investigation and contacting people, it appears that the tutorial was not followed correctly, or that one step was missed...
I would be grateful if you can:
1/ Read carefully the tutorial once more
2/ Try the manual steps
3/ If all fails, then download our Repare-HFX batch file which will solve the problem (but read the notice with it, apply it correctly)...

Thanks,
DV FX

greatest tutorial for me. I have had the same problem each time that install 12 or later after 10. HFX should appear only if I have studio 10 installed even.
Now I have all my HFX without being forced to have studio 10 too.

Huiby By # Huiby @ Wednesday, September 14, 2011 3:19 PM
Some weeks ago my computer crashed. Now it is fixed again, so I have to re-install a lot of programs, including the Déclic transitions.
Before the crash I used Windows XP and Pinnacle Studio 12 ultimate and could easily install the Déclic transitions.
Now I use Windows 7 with the same Pinnacle program, but I cannot install the Déclic transitions now. Is there perhaps a special trick to do this in Windows 7?

Chip819 By # Chip819 @ Wednesday, September 14, 2011 10:01 PM
Hello Huiby,

if it is not already done on your system (Windows 7) you have to turn off the UAC. Click on the following link (if you are not sure how to do the modification in your O.S.)

As Loosecannon has explained at the top of this tutorial : ... you must be logged in administrator mode when running the batch file (in order to regenerate the HfxXML folder) *and* when running Studio once using Windows 7 or Vista.

I hope that my answers will guide you to success. :o)

Chip819

Huiby By # Huiby @ Thursday, September 15, 2011 1:14 PM
Thanks very much; I turned off the UAC and YES, I could install the Déclic transitions.

Rajesh By # Rajesh @ Wednesday, April 25, 2012 1:28 AM
I am using Windows 7... and pinnacle studio 14 Ultimate collection

I have tried everything that are written in tutorials. first the folders did not show, but somehow I was able to fix this with the help of the "Repare-HFX-11-12-14-15" batch file. and the folder declic video appeared.
my question is Do I have to use the "Repare-HFX-11-12-14-15" batch file everytime I have to install new transitions downloaded from your website?...
I tried installing directly without repair. i didnt work. so I used the "Repare-HFX-11-12-14-15" batch file then installed the new FX transitions before reopening Studio 14 program, andit worked.
so Does it mean I have to use the "Repare-HFX-11-12-14-15" batch file everytime?

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Thursday, May 3, 2012 3:30 PM
Hello Rajesh,

Yes you need to use the "Repare-HFX..." file each time you install a new transition downloaded from our website.
But you can:
- download all transitions (there is a zip file which exist)
- extract all of them
- close Studio
- double click on each transition to install it
- run Repare-HFX-... only once for all installation

Is that clear ? Does it make sense ?

Topic: HFX transitions not visible in Studio.
In the past I installed Declic transitions in Studio 11/12. Sorry, I don't remember how I did this, but a long time ago I migrated to Studio 14 (Studio 12 is still installed) and all my transitions are now active in studio 14.
Unfortunately, installation of additional (Declic) transitions in studio 14 fails. HFZ files are properly unpacked/installed, but hfx files are not visible in studio (however they can be selected in the FX editor).
Of course I followed all guidelines listed on your site by deleting cachefiles and all xml+bmp files (also checked out the batch file which did not work as my installation is not default but I am sure I did the right thing).
Installation details:
Windows 7 64 bit.
HFX files are in:
D:\Video\Studio\HollywoodFX\Effects (all studio content
Cache files are in:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Pinnacle\Program Files (x86)\Multimedia\Pinnacle\Studio 14\Programs\PlugIns\Rtfx
XML and BMP files are in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MULTIMEDIA\Pinnacle\Studio 14\Plugins\RTFx\HfxXML
It seems that both cachefiles are properly rebuilt when Studio 14 is opened, but the folder HfxXML stays empty: the files are not recreated as advised...
Test: after manual deletion of an existing xml (e.g. BAS-UFO.xml) it is not visible in Studio and is also not recreated after startup, even if the HFX file is there.
Any advise would be highly appreciated. Kind regards and thanks for your excellent transitions!

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, July 15, 2012 7:06 AM
Hello Paul Arts,

We always recommend a standard installation, otherwise it's very difficult or quite impossible to help people, since everybody has a different installation.
In your case, it seems that the installation is not standard, and therefore I am unable to help, I can just propose to follow our guideline, and doing the job by yourself, and trying to understand why the XML is not reconstructed itself.

DV FX

Paul Arts By # Paul Arts @ Sunday, July 15, 2012 8:55 AM
My appreciation for your quick response!

Actually the only thing not standard about my installation is, that I installed Studio in a subfolder 'multimedia' in the programs folder. Installation of all studio features (such as transitions) in a separate folder is a formal option offered by the Studio installation package when upgrading from a previous version...

I have read all articles on your site and applied your procedures (ref articles Tip-1 and 2), but xml and bmp files are simply not being rebuilt, only the cache files. I have read some articles from Studio users who mention the same problem, so I am not completely alone it seems...

It would really help if I could gain some insight in how studio uses/rebuilds these hfx-related xml and bmp files. Do you have any information on that process or on the contents of the xml files?


PS: All I could find untill now is a 'work around' (which you might publish in a tip): Use an existing HFX transition in Studio, open it with HFX editor and then replace it with the desired HFX, which is invisible in Studio but visible in the editor in the appropriate album. Then close the editor and although the icon on the Studio timeline remains unchanged, the new transition is now applied.

Salutations distinguées,
Paul Arts

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, July 15, 2012 9:05 AM
Dear Paul,

The way Studio rebuilds the xml is extremely confusing for us as well...
That's why, we are in favor of standard installation. As you said, the option you choose is offered, but it causes problem, we know this, and that's why many people finally re-install everything to benefit from our transition (and strictly following a standard installation).

Otherwise, Have you looked here and tried the option with the zip file ? >> Install our free HFX transitions in Pinnacle Studio

DV FX
PS: the workaround is not convenient and I am not in favor of publishing it.

Paul Arts By # Paul Arts @ Sunday, July 15, 2012 12:46 PM
Absolutely brilliant. In the zipfile 'install our free transitions in AVid Studio' I found the xml and bmp files I have been looking for. I copied them to the appropriate Studio folder and voila, it works. Thanks a lot.
Suggestion: rename the link to the zipfile or make a link on your tip#1 page: it is a good solution but it refers to Avid Studio which was the reason I overlooked it.
Thanks again.

Batino By # Batino @ Thursday, March 14, 2013 4:43 AM
Hi,
Finally yesterday I succedeed after many days to restore all my transitions...
I Thaught...
In fact no declic video appears..
I thaught because has the same number of others
00 - Declic Video
so i changed everywhere in
35 - declic video
and so the same with some other transition disappeared...
But Pinnacle 15 doesn't see the transition.
The only way is using a transition that I see, edit it, and substitute from Easyfx program...
Can you help me?
Thanks

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, March 17, 2013 3:13 PM

Heh heh. I see nothing has changed with Pinnacle Studio over the years since I bought v8 later upgrading to version 9.4, I was going to buy the HFX transitions key but I'm glad I didn't. I'll stick with the buggy 9.4; at least I have workarounds for most of the bugs/issues/f*ups.
Anyway you are doing great work. Pinnacle should pay you a fee.

Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Sunday, March 31, 2013 2:44 PM

It's not just the cost of the software but I'll need to upgrade my PC. Anyway, many months ago I emailed Pinnacle asking if I could upgrade my current version. I'm still waiting for an answer. I will have nothing more to with them until I get a reply.

Optimal supplement to Studio 16

I have already tried to install a my new transition with this system:
1 - HFX Editor exported from its HFZ
2 - installed in my S16 Ultimate
3 - installed in S15 (of my friend)
copied to the folder where the file ONLY. XML (without the BMP / PNG)
and it works the same.

Since my PC has worked with XML obtained from a S15 version installed on the PC of a friend, I would ask:

Why do you say that S15 must be installed in the same partition as S16?

It could also stand on another PC or am I wrong?


Le Papy By # Le Papy @ Friday, October 18, 2013 1:37 PM
Hello FR,
Excuse my poor English ...
To display the transitions, Studio 16 needs xml files and bmp file.
You must provide the xml files and Studio 16 uses the Studio 11/15 bmp file that he knows how to find. If Studio 11/15 is not installed on the same partition, Studio 16 can't find the bmp file and it does not display transitions.
When the user does not have Studio 11/15 installed on the same partition, he must use the Step 2 procedure.
Regards,

FR By # FR @ Friday, October 18, 2013 4:36 PM

Dear Le papy,

first of all thanks for the reply,

on my PC I only S16 and in my case there was no need of the BMP file (which calls S16 PNG) as follows:

1) created or changed with the transition HFX editor, slide play with up to mid-term (otherwise you will see the icon of the black transition)
2) saved in the transition HFX editor, I exported desktop (you will find a file HFZ)
3) double-click the file HFZ so even installing the various components
4) copied the files from the folder HFX HFX editor to the library folder of pinnacle (along with others)
5) copied the (only) XML file sent to me by a friend of mine with S15 that had installed on his PC my HFZ.

It worked.

In the library you will see the same image of the icon visible in HFX editor

Try it for yourself.

Best wishes


Déclic Vidéo FX By # Déclic Vidéo FX @ Saturday, October 19, 2013 3:00 PM

Great it works on your configuration. But your method is not working on all configuration, in particular if you bypass "the installation of a transition" you might have problem (which force you to drag and drop the file onto the InstallHFZ.exe file).

I couldn't get the transitions to work. I still get the Pinnacle logo

Downloaded the 310-gateau.hfz transition. I deleted the effects.org and the albumorg.org files in the hollywood fx for studio directory.

Do I need the repare-HFX.bat?

Earlier I said I had version 9.4 - this is wrong 9.4 is totally unusable - it is unbelievably slow; I went back to version 9.3, I found another program to convert DVDs to AVI (I don't need to do this very often anyway).

Another thing; is it true that your transitions are only free if certain transition packs were purchased from Pinnacle?

Le Papy By # Le Papy @ Sunday, May 31, 2015 3:22 PM
Hello Sam,
At the top of our download page transitions, it is written: "These effects have been tested, are virus free and work correctly in Pinnacle Studio 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 12, 11, 10 as well as Adobe Première V1.5 & 2.x (2), under Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Win7 or Win8 to the transition #300. From the transition #301, the compatibility with Studio 9 can not be guaranteed and Pinnacle logo may appear in Studio 9".
It's not possible to use the 310-gateau.hfz transition in Studio 9.
All our transitions are completely free since Avid Studio marketing.
Regards,

Sam By # Sam @ Sunday, May 31, 2015 7:31 PM
Hi Le Papy,

Thanks for responding so quickly.

I must have missed the bit about the transitions might not work in v9 and that the 310-gateau won't work at all. My apologies.

I never suggested that the transitions weren't free from DeClic, sorry if that's what you thought I said.

However since I posted that message, I uninstalled the Pinnacle Plus software - it wasn't much use; about 3Gb of extras that require payment to remove the watermark (actually it's more of a nasty stain than a subtle watermark). Anyway after I did that I clicked on Piinacle and a message about Heroglyph came up and when I try to use the 310-gateau transition, it's no longer a cake - it's a circle of dots. I need to remove Pinnacle completely; but using the Add/Remove programs in Control Panel leaves a lot of the program's directories and files behind.

As far as upgrading is concerned I'm not going to do that. Many issues in v8 that I reported to Pinnacle were never resolved. Now Pinnacle 8 users are left "High and Dry". Pinnacle v9 works better. I notice however that users of later versions are complaining of issues that were there in v8.

I got an email offering an upgrade to v18.5 for £59 - I might as well have placed a bet for Electro Velvet to win Eurovision for the good it will do me.

Incidentally Pinnacle are completely unhelpful; apparently I have to pay £money for a "Service Plan" before they'll even talk to me. If their "Tech" People do have an email address it is a company secret, the only email address I can find is for their Sales Team.

Unfortunately Pinnacle's attitude stinks; I have had problems and continue to have problems with their products that I have paid good money for, as far as I'm concerned they owe me v18.5 for the many wasted hours spent because of the problems with their software.

Anyway enough of my ramblings; please can you tell me where to find out how to uninstall Pinnacle Studio 9 completely. Please point me a the relevant forum. You can email me at xxxxxxxxx@gmail.com, if you want.

Regards:
-Sam

Hi Sam,

A also need to completely uninstall Pinnacle Studio but I can't find out exactly how to do it; What about regedit after Add/Remove. Another thought: What about Pinnacle's uninstall found in All Programs Studio Tools?

I want to do a fresh install before I check out the declic transitions, Pinnacle's website is no use at all.

I'm thinking also of installing Studio 9 on my laptop which has Windows 7 using the XP compatibility mode but I want to make sure I can remove it fully in case it doesn't work very well.

I don't think the CBM is a good place to buy these products; I heard there were Trojan Whores there and they have nasty viruses.

Hi guys
I just want to say I am impressed. I did as you instructed as part of the manual procedure and it worked as I wished for. The transitions I was missing for a while they reappeared again. thanks for your work. I am so unhappy with Pinnacle though. this should be a piece of cake for them to be implemented as part of their installation package!! that's so dumb of them. Thanks again guys.
