1 - The new VS curves algorithms are amazing. No noise, super predictable behavior. If only these same curves could apply to alpha selection as well.

It would be fairly simple unless their underlying math is completely different from what I guess it to be. A new panel of VS alpha curves. So Hue vs alpha, Sat vs alpha, etc.

If you think about it hue vs luma, for example, is almost exactly the same, only it's adding luma to a whole color image rather to a black and white alpha image (which one would think would actually be even less processor intensive.)

2 - Add Alpha to the splitter/combiner node set of elements. Then I could put curves on the alpha, blur it, noise reduce it use plugins on it- anything I want. Would solve a LOT of problems VERY quickly.

Now I know I am a vocal non-fan of BM cameras and pricing philosophies, which I have frequently described as a "race to the bottom" but even I would be willing to admit that Resolve would then be the best grader out there by far, and I do hope that BM will not hold their understandable antipathy toward me as a reason to never implement these ideas. I am not a friend of BMs, but I am a friend of saving time and getting better results and making beautiful images.
