Hi,

I'm setting up a new avid adrenaline and was debating getting the sapphire plugins for after effects instead. i've used these plugins on a symphony and found the nesting of effects to be tedious, especially when dealing with graphics + alpha. i was wondering if the AE version was easier to use/manipulate? thanks for your input.

Hi Jaymin -- just FYI, Sapphire2 for AVX will improve the nesting workflow, especially for titles and keys. It's due out early next year, and there are lots more goodies in it too compared to the current version. We're currently offering free upgrades to Sapphire V2 for AVX if you buy V1 now.

I'd base your decision more on where you spend most of your time, and where you most need the effects capability readily available.

Hope that helps!

If it's mainly for graphics then buy it for the program that you create them in. If you're using it for video treatment, keep it inside Avid. Nesting is a pain but faster than dealing with AE plus better performance. To help with the nesting I routed the command to the up & down arrow. It makes it a lot faster to step in.
