i had some succes in bringing Red Giants Mojo and Colorista II into LW. I just copied the 32bit versions of the Effects from the Premiere Pro Plug In Folder right into the LW Plug In Folder.
It doesn't update the Frame instantly so I always have to go one frame ahead to see the tweaked result and it isn't really fast - even crashes LW sometimes - but it works
Hi Maui. I've fixed an issue which will unfortunately be causing instability with After-Effects plug-ins in the current beta build - keep an eye on the Announcements section for news of updates.
I've managed to get Magic Bullet Looks working, but only by disabling some portions of our plugin support (which really do need to be there).. I'll keep trying, but may need to seek help from Red Giant to get any further.
We do our best to make AE plugins run as fast as possible, but there's an overhead in supplying images to AE plugins - we have to shuffle the component order (BGRA -> ARGB I think) then fetch them back from GPU memory into host memory; Once the plugin has processed an image we have to copy back to GPU memory and re-shuffle the components. Component shuffling is very fast, but GPU <-> host can be a bottleneck.
Lightworks is capable of replicating (in real-time) most of the looks that MB Looks offers, although we don't presently offer an arbitrary 'curves' effect.
it's possible to bring in colorista II. just copie the 32bit version of it into the plug in folder of LW. then you can choose the effect in the effects menu, but right now LW crashes everytime i want to change the wheels. with mojo i had a more success, but still there are a lot of problems in using red giant plug ins (see my last post). maybe the new build will solve a lot of these issues
has anyone tried Looks with the new beta?
The change list says "Handling is improved for After-Effects plug-ins that use custom parameter types (for example, Red Giant ‘Looks’)."
Just wanted to know how well it works now. Thanks
