    Need some plug-in suggestions for MC11/Mac OS 9

    I've been thrown back into the dark ages on my current project. My client is using Media Composer 11.2.6 running on Mac OS 9, and they have nothing but the stock effects set. I've been spoiled with some really sweet systems lately, so working on this is like being thrown back to MC6 running at half speed.

    Long story short, I need to convince them to get some good video treating plug-ins, because the gap between what they have and what they want is huge. Simple B&W and 'dip to color' isn't going to cut it anymore.

    The last time I worked on OS 9, I could have used the DFT 55mm plugins, which were an awesome bang for the buck. Unfortunately, they've been folded into the Tiffen FX package, which doesn't seem to be compatible with OS 9.

    So what's out there that's OS 9 compatible, reasonably priced, and will give me some halfway decent effects options? I don't need Sapphire, and I don't need high-end keying tools, just some decent options to give me some good video looks.

     An older version of the Boris F/X 3rd party plug-in, say version 4 or 5 was compatible with it.  I'll check and see if I still have those discs on Monday.
