It looks like that there is a typing error in the description how to install the patch. Quote:
-make some copy/paste of everything you find in the "programs" directory into C:\Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 19\plugins.
Instead of "programs" it should say "plugins", I think.

Got the patch installed and now I am getting a watermark when I use the New blue effects. It took me several tries to get the hot patch correctly installed or so I thought. Any ideas as to what I left out?

It's a side effect of the hotfix. A new corrected version of the .zip has been uploaded by Corel this week. Re-download the FixBlackFrameFor19.5.1_64bit.zip and redo the recipe given in my article. Watermark should be fixed after that.

The link is still not working. I have made two other posts, over the last 36 hours, about this and neither have appeared on the forum.I have even gone to another computer to no avail.

Got it. Thanks. You guy's always come through for me. After installing the link I found my other problem. I was making a time lapse with multiple edits , and than I decides to change the speed of the clips and with out making sure the speed settings were the same. This resulted in some random frame rates and this apparently is Pinnacles biggest pet peve.As soon as I removed all the speed changes the video became stable. Being careful to match all the speed changes I was able to re apply the slo motion and maintain stability. This was discovered in a tutorial I found here, in fact it is one of the earlier ones explaining what to try when all else fails. There are no obsolete tutorials. Once again thanks for your patience.
