Users installing Raylight Ultra on 64-bit Windows 7 will experience a problem preventing the Raylight plugin from registering properly with Vegas 9. If you are running either the 32-bit OR the 64-bit version of Vegas 9 on 64-bit Windows 7, complete the installation as follows:
1. Locate the folder where Vegas 9 is installed.
For 64-bit Vegas 9 the default path is:
C:\Program Files\Sony\Vegas Pro 9.0.
For 32-bit Vegas 9 the default path is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\Vegas Pro 9.0.
2. Edit the file DVFilm.fio2007-config file using Notepad. If this file doesn't exist create it.
3. If you are using 64-bit Vegas 9 the contents of the file should contain:
DVFilmMxfPlug=C:\Program Files\DVFilm\Raylight Ultra 1.1.1\RaylightVegas90-64.dll
The Raylight Ultra installer will have left off the "-64" at the end of the plugin file name. Naturally, if you changed the default destination path for Raylight Ultra you will need to adjust the path accordingly.
4. If you are using 32-bit Vegas 9 the contents of the file should contain
DVFilmMxfPlug=C:\Program Files (x86)\DVFilm\Raylight Ultra 1.1.1\RaylightVegas90.dll
The Raylight Ultra installer will have left off the "(x86)" from the path name. Again, if you changed the default destination path for Raylight Ultra you will need to adjust the path accordingly.
5. Restart Vegas and it should now find the appropriate Raylight plugin to handle MXF files. You can tell if the plugin is installed properly by opening the Vegas explorer pane, and selecting a video MXF file. If the plugin is installed properly and the MXF file is a supported type (AVC-Intra coming soon!), then below the explorer pane, you will see information about the MXF file as well as "DVFilm Raylight Ultra" displayed.
This issue is caused by a failure to reliably obtain the installation path of Sony Vegas 9.0 under Windows 7.0. The issue will be resolved in future releases of Raylight Ultra and Sony Vegas
