As far as I remember, there are specific OFX versions of Sapphire for Baselight, Scratch, FimMaster, Smoke etc. Obviously OFX version are much more expensive, than the ones for AE:-)
Scratch’s integration with Mocha is a simple script. There is nothing proprietary in that and nothing would prevent BM from doing the same. I talked with Mocha people about Resolve integration and they asked me, if I would help them in putting then into contact with BM. I even passed the card from Mocha engineer to one of BM higher ups. Will see… As far as using Mocha in Resolve, I can’t say much right now. But I can say, that soon you may not need Mocha at all. Sorry for being so cryptic:-)
The same goes for Neat Video. There will be no reason to use it or to pay for it. That is unless you’re still using resolve Lite. The built in temporal noise reduction in resolve promises to be of top notch quality.
Actually OFX plugins open a new pandora box.
First, the quality built of OFX plugins may affect the stability of Resolve. That’s the price of opening the platform to third party developers.
Second. What happens with Remote Grading. Let say you want to use a plugin. Do you ask the other party every time you want to use a plugin, if they have that plugin. Do you ask what version of plugin they are running? What happens, if you try to use it and it’s not there or if it is wrong version? Will the session get terminated at that point, like it does with wrong version of Resolve? Or your Resolve will crush? All of a sudden, it’s doesn’t sound that appealing to those, that use resolve for Remote Grading….

Was going to say, “don’t assume they will work right away”
I’ve tried Neat Video on Avid DS and it doesn’t work.

I am working with a software developer on a project who has extensively looked at the OFX plugin API and while any OFX plug “should” work on any OFX plug capable machine, in theory, the API is supposedly very complex and in reality not all OFX plugs are universally compatible as others have found out.

It took two years for Neat to work in Scratch…
Nuke OFX stopped at a point when they went on with their own flavour which was not Open at all anymore.
Personally I like Resolve the way it is and i hope they find a way to extend the toolset without sacrificing what we have right now.
I much rather fire up Smoke and do my FX there with all the presets, animations, interoperability that it offers.
Simple stuff like PIP is much appreciated though.

I check with Filmconvert, and they are developing their OFX plug-in for Resolve…

Resolve 10 noise reduction is amazing, does it’s job and retains detail, all with just 1 pinch of a slider.
People will use the same plugins with resolve that they use with all the other NLE….that is if it’s supported. I plan on using sapphire, film convert, magic bullet (I’m guessing will work eventually) and so on..
