Dear BMD - don't you think it's time to open up?

Seems one of the themes of NAB this year is everybody working with everybody. BMD working with Autodesk is a good example. Don't you think it's time to open up Resolve to other (AJA) cards, particularly now that you're heading in a complete finishing solution direction?

You understand that they took something that used to cost half a million dollars, made it a thousand times better, and now give it to you almost for free, so that you'll buy their hardware instead of AJA's.

Yeah, I completely understand, and I've bought plenty of BMD hardware. AJA just tends to work better (for me) with other software that's not Resolve. Resolve working with AJA would solve some problems. Charge twice as much for the "open" version - they could easily make up the profit difference by doing that.

I love Resolve and what BMD has done with it; I'm grateful for all they've added to it (for FREE) and will continue to use it and love it whether they support other hardware or not. But it would be nice if they did.

To me it seems that maybe aja will go out and BM be the smoke IO.

Maybe later on Smoke will be integrated to Resolve?

Just wild guess but seems reasonable

Looking at Resolve 10, Resolve will be Blackmagic's Smoke.

Maybe eventually, but it's got a LONG way to go to match Smoke's toolset. Just like Smoke doesn't come close to Resolve's grading tools.

I was thinking of combining capabilities.

Autodesk and Discreet before that spent many, many years perfecting the toolset of Smoke and Flame. You either haven't seen Smoke in action or you don't appreciate the enormous complexity, elegance and sheer creative power afforded by Smoke. Despite much promise at finishing, in it's present form Resolve has a long way to go... But it's a start...

That being said, its actually not that crazy of a thought. 5 years from now, I could see BM becoming the dominant market player, with enough cash on hand to pull a power play. The discreet line continues to see diminishing returns for the Autodesk, who run enough product lines that they might be willing to shed them for cash to buy the Foundry line. Adobe would have already bought C4D by then, and BM would buy smoke/flame.

Wild conjecturing, but fun to speculate nonetheless.

Five years is an eternity in this market.

In the other hand so much has changed in a year that never say never.

They have to make money somehow - but they could charge $2000 for an open version. I might buy that.
