Hi

I can see that you have done OFX version of reelsmart motionblur for windows. Are you working on a Linux OFX version that works for Nuke 5?

If you have anything in works please contact me ASAP even if its just in beta testing...

Cheers

Hi
I thought the entire purpose of the OFX API was to have an architecture independent system for plugins, so that you would write the actual OFX plugins only once, and what actually changed between systems, would be the OFX client, so that for instance, you would have for each application, like Nuke, Fusion, Toxik, whatever, some part of the code dedicated to "hosting" the OFX plugin, but that the OFX plugin itself would just connect to this client, and in this sense, you wouldn't have to write a plugin for dozens of applications, each application would have its own OFX host, and they all would access a common OFX plugin.
Regarding this still, i noticed you have MotionBlur OFX for Toxik, but for windows only atm. Wouldn't this work for Nuke for instance, since it's an OFX plugin? When can we expect an linux version of this? x86-32 and x86-64, since some of us just invested into toxik 2008 x86-64 linux.
Thanks for your time, and please correct any wrong assumptions i might be making about OFX.

Well, in a perfect world, when you implement an OFX plugin it would work in all host applications.

We do not live in a perfect world. There are bugs in host apps, and unimplemented features. Just because a plugin API exists, doesn't mean that all hosts implement all the features we need. And navigating through which features work in which host applications is quite the task. Often times we have to put in special code based on the host application to turn on and of features that are supposed to work, but don't (or worse: cause the plugin or host to crash).

That said, our first version of RSMB for OFX (version 3.2.1), does not work in Nuke. But our next version will work in Nuke. And the next version will work in toxik for Linux (both 32 and 64 bit) as well as WIndows. bottom line: our next version will work on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux (both 32 and 64 bit).

Stay tuned, because the release of the next version is imminent (look for it very soon!)
