I am looking to purchase the Sapphire plugs but can only afford one set, even though my work seems to be evenly spread across Shake, After Effects and Motion, with all editing done in FCP. Often starting a shot in one and finishing it in another.
To all you power users - which package do you find yourself using Sapphire in the most?
and if you have the time, any particular reasons or like me could you only afford to put it on one platform?
Because I have the exact same question with the exact same issue. My work is spread out between the FCP timeline, After Effects CS3 and Motion 3. Do I get more cross platform compatibility with the After Effects compatible plugin, or do I lean on the FxPlug architecture for stability?
Any and all opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
BTW, I'm on a MacBook Pro, 2.4 Ghz Intel Core Duo w/4GB RAM, working in FCP 6, Motion 3 and AE CS3.
