Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

Sadly, the web site says it is the standalone plus the plug-in. I ordered it, paid for it, downloaded the software, but the standalone refused to accept the serial number, only the plug-in did.

I then called Digital Juice. They asked me to email them so they can pass the information on to ProDAD. But, until they resolve it, the deal is not what the DJ web site says it is. :(

Just purchased it myself, I received all the download links in my Email for the full stand alone version as well as the plug-in versions ...Will see if they install with the included license on my Vegas 10 and Pinnacle 14 software, plus I will try to install the stand-alone version as well tonight after work..will keep you posted.

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

Apparently, my problem was just some coincidence. Digital Juice forwarded my email to ProDAD who has promptly issued me a new serial number, and that one works. I'm a happy camper. This is a very good deal, indeed.

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

I ordered, paid for and received a licence key but the email with the key did not contain the link to download the software. Would anyone be able to post that for me?

Unfortunately, the customer service is closed for the weekend and I couldn't find anything on their customer forums that helped.

thanks!

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

I did a quick test (using only John's tutorial for my training) with some shaky footage of mine (EX3 with a 35 mm adapter and a prime telephoto lens) using this plug-in in 64-bit Vegas 10.0c on Windows 7 Ultimate. I did it at 1080p 24/1.001 fps. You can see it at YouTube - Mercalli 2.0 plug-in for Sony Vegas 10.0c Test. Please make sure to watch it in full screen and to select 1080p.

Pro Dad did a promo with Vegas 10 when it first came out for $174.00 now they are under cutting that just to piss off their old customers. All I hope is they aren't going out of business. There upgrades and fixes are few and far between as is.

Maybe they believe in doing it right from the start and not needing any upgrades or fixes?

Well, they didn't get it all right, cause I have the same failure on the stand alone installation.

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

I was talking about the software itself, not the whatever serial number generator they gave Digital Juice.

I have the same problem so, like Adam, I'll be sending an email today and hope to get a new working serial number.
The Vegas version works just fine so hopefully it's just a minor glitch.

Kind of off topic, does anyone know if ProDAD lets you install it on multiple computers like we can with Vegas?

As is well known, no one ever reads the license agreements, so I had to search the web and could not find the answer. Finally, I opened the Mercalli help file. Under "General Information" is a link to a page called "Copyright". And about one third down that page, it states:

The present product may only be installed on one computer.

So, my guess is the answer is no.
