Finding VisTitles
Edius 8 cannot find Vistitles - even though they appear in the file folder for "titles." Even opening the Vistitle application doesn't restore them.

Any ideas?

Try the dongle in a different slot and RESTART Edius.

Already tried that.

All of the Vistitles in the bin are black frames. They show locations, but will not load.

This occurred after I downloaded 8.33, which not make a difference.

What about new titles or VT in standalone mode?

Did you look in device manager to see if you had an exclaimation point on the dongle? If you are absolutely sure there is nothing wrong with the dongle, you can try this:

Do step #6 first to see if that takes care of it. If not, do the list as is.

1. Uninstall Vistitle. You didn't say which version you're running.
If you have version 2.0 or higher, download version 2.6:

2. Uninstall the dongle driver. Remove the dongle

Download this driver:

3. Reboot the system.

4. Insert the dongle and run the new dongle driver.

5. After the driver is installed, install Vistitle.

6. Download this DirectX file and run it.
Sometimes, the built in DirectX file is not enough.

6. Reboot the system after install.

Let us know if it works or not.

Finding Vistitles
Jerry -

Sorry about not getting back to you sooner and thanks much for the set-by-step.

I performed all the steps and in the order you suggested and still the thumbnails in the bin remain black. I can click on them and open them and they appear as before - ready to be worked on.

One thing I did notice, Vistitle thinks it's running in Windows 8 when it's actually running in Windows 10 Pro. That was true before the updates and reboots as well.

The donger driver was not checked before and it remains not checked in the device manager.

All in all, I am stumped.

Are you running Vistitle 2.606?
If not, download it and uninstall the previous version.
Reboot, install the latest, and reboot again.
Run the DirectX download again.

Finding VisTitles
The latest Edius Vistitle (Vr. 2.606) is the one I installed as well as the latest dongle driver 7.5.9 for Windows.

Rerunning Direct X

After I open the Vistitle program, the thumbnail displays an image. The second I close the Vistitle program, the thumbnail image reverts to black.

I even tired using the "SAVE TO EDIUS" button and the same things happens - the bin thumbnail is black.
