Any way to get VST audio plug ins working?

I am running the trial and none of the Audio plugins work.

This is holding me back from buying this.

I use the audio plug ins in every other program i use for video and audio editng and music making thay all work but in Screen Flow none of them work.

I would like to be able to use them on my voice for talkovers when recording as do in other programs like OSB and Resolve. 
Quite surprised this is not working as it is such a used itme now days.

If i have to take all the files into a different video editing program like resolve just to be able to edit my audio as normal it makes buying Screen Flow no help at all then.

Also any way to make and inport in custom fly in and out titles into the newer title area to drag and drop in. Any one selling other title packs for this?

 

Thanks

  • Hopefully someone can help you out. Adding audio plugins is a non-issue for me: easy peasy. So it definitely works. Perhaps there's something specific about your workflow. What specific VST or AU audio plugins are your trying to use?

  • Edward  please explain further. What plugins specifically? Version of ScreenFlow, macOS, mac CPU type (many plugins are not Apple Silicon compatible)?.320

    I use Accusonus and an older version of iZotope plugins on ScreenFlow 10.0.4 on Big Sur Intel Mac. There are some UI issues but most (oot all) of the plugins work.

    We do not guarantee the compatibility of third-party plugins. Generally, AU plugins will work but VST may not.

  • I have two systems a Mac Mini M1 and a Macbook Air M1. I am doing most all my work on my Macbook air M1.
    11.6.1 Big Sur
    Every plugin i have tried that is use in my other programs will not work in screen flow.

    The main one i use for talkovers for my voice are.
    From Eventide - Ultra channel https://www.eventideaudio.com/plug-ins/ultrachannel/
    And i like to use the eventide new Split EQ - https://www.eventideaudio.com/plug-ins/spliteq/

    I also like to use this for a de essing - https://www.hornetplugins.com/plugins/hornet-sybilla-pro/

    The Ultra channel is the most used one as it covers so much in one plugin I have settings all set up for my voice in it all ready i use in Logic, And Resolve and they all work in OSB as well.

    Here is a screen shot of what pops up when I try to use any of my plugins from any brand.

    Right now I just tried to load in another plug in from another brand and it  crashed Screen flow I have long crash message that pops up.
    Now screen flow will not open back up it tries to re-open and they just shits off.
    I now needed to start a new version so everything I was working on is now all lost.

      Edward Please check to make sure the plugins are Apple Silicon compatible. Many plugins are not yet compatible. ScreenFlow on M1 Apple Silicon requires plugins to be Universal/Apple Silicon. If they need Rosetta they will not work properly. You must check with the plugin developers.

      You could try running ScreenFlow in Rosetta but that may open other issues as that's normal use.

      Edward If you can confirm Apple Silicon compatibility we can look at UI and crashing issues.
      I do know that some plugins have GUI issues but sliders may work (I see this with iZotope for example). Keep in mind in some cases it may mean updating the plugins or otherwise confirm they aren't yet Universal/Apple Silicon.

      CraigS Hi yes they are all M1 versions that is all i buy now. They all work without Rosetta.
      I was having a problem with Logic some time back and apple support had me quit using Rosetta and that fixed all my problems. I now do not run anything under Rosetta or buy anything that needs it.

      Mathew Mitchell I did not update to Monterey yet as apple support told me not to as they still have to many problems with Logic. Eventide works good under Big Sur and now Monterey as well.
      On the eventide link all they did was update that message to now say Monterey before that is stated BigSur. Been using many of their plugins in both my Mac Mini M1 and Macbook M1 In logic and Resolve.
      Here is Eventide - ultra channel working in Logic.

      Edward Please list each plugin developer separate and the issue you have with each. 
      If it's a User Interface issue describe so we can test and verify.
      List one of the plugins you tried for that developer so we may test that one specifically.
      Mention if the same issue is affecting other plugins by the developer (no need to list more than one though)
      If it's a crash please list the message you get for the crash.

      For the crashes we will need your diagnostic logs.
      Hold Shift and select ScreenFlow Help Menu and select Save the report and attach here or use something like dropbox and attach it here or to a forum private message to me referring to this thread.

  • The main one that covers most of everything in one plugin is the Eventide - Ultra Channel plugin if I could get that working that can be the only one I really need to use on everything.

    When I load it I get the pop up message Fatal error: 100000 see the screen shot I post before.

     

    Others I was testing just to see if they would work some do and some don't and some crash screen flow right away but I do not need to use them as Ultra Channel covers everything in one plugin.
    And yes some other plugins from Eventide do work I have a few from them.

     That's important since we can focus on one that fails. This might point to a common issue with some of the other plugins.

  • I re-downloaded Ultra Channel and re-installed it to see if it has AU listed and yes here is the install screen shot. Then re-tested and still not working in SF.

    Have one other ? on recording.
    I just ordered a extra wide monitor. Can I screen record just a program or browser window that is open on one side of the monitor and have other things open on the other side of the screen like the live video preview window? and a text file open to read and so on when recording?.

    I spent many hours last night learning how to do more in Screen flow and I am happy to see how easy it is to use the actions for moving a video window or re-sizing and more at the same time. Text feature are ok I do wish it offered more in that but I did make some in Affinity and loaded them in and used effects to fly them in and that worked great.

    Can i create an animated custom title in something like resolve and export it out into Screen flow to use and have it show up in the titles pop up window to use. Or how can i make new custom titles that can be added into the pop up titles area that the text can be edited like the included ones so I can create more?.

      Edward Titles created in another program and exported to a compatible media file would simply be an imported media file. Custom imported Titles in our format and location aren't supported. Perhaps you can make a feature request for that but it might mean revealing proprietary information about title creation.

      Edward Noting that I downloaded the 30 day trial of UltraChannel. It crashes in ScreenFlow for me as well. The crash log shows the plugin itself crashes taking down ScreenFlow.
      The plugin works without issue in GarageBand on the same computer.

      It works in Divinci resolve, Logic, GB, and OBS and othey screen recording programs i have tested that support Plugins the only program it is not working in is screen flow.

      I have others that do not work in SF as well from other brands it is jusy ultra channel that offers the most in one. Some of the Hornet audio plugins do not work in SF as well but work in all other programs i tryed them in.

      Edward I've seen UI issues with some third party plugins and ScreenFlow (something we're looking at) but this is a crash so we escalate those but the crash log seems to point to the plugin. Perhaps ScreenFlow needs something from the plugin it's not getting. We'll continue to investigate.

      CraigS Ok i have been using OBS and getting more and more used to it.
      Was going to get Screen flow as well as a second way to do things.
      I am seeing now i can set up OBS to record out all the different itmes as well now to edit after the recording.
      I use Davinci Resolve to edit in but i also have Final Cut as part of a Mac package i have.
      Playing with another screen program called Screenium 3 for Mac that dose a lot of what Screen Flow dose but falls short on a few things like no Audio plug ins at all and the editing area is not as good as Screen Flow but they are getting very close they do not have as many effects yet but not to far off it cost $29 also playing with a few others.
      Dose Screen Flow ever go on sale? if so when will the next sale be.

     It certainly does but I can't give out those times in advance. It's often around certain holidays but there are other times. The best and fastest way to get those notifications are on Facebook and Twitter.

    I can add custom Audio Units but I can't get any parameters to display or the GUI to display.

    I'm running ScreenFlow 10.0.5 on MacOS 12.4 on an M1 Macbook Pro. The plugins I'm trying to load are iZotope RX 9 Advanced plugins which are Apple Silicon native.

    Ive had it before, whatever plug in I tried it was always a problem.

    It is really not okay that the program gives the impression it works with plug ins. I dont know how to edit my audio except exporting separate movies with different sound tracks in the end and do it in Logic.  Does anyone know a reliable alternative software for video tutorials on mac?
