I'm not talking about rendering - I'm talking about playback performance - Red Giant stuff sucks, it hasn't been improved in any app in years. Yes they off-load some heavy lifting to graphics card and this was great 3 or 4 years ago, but they've fallen way behind in the era of CUDA etc.

I have a LOT of paid 3rd party plugs in FCPX - regardless of the architecture and Motion blah blah - they all playback very smoothly compared to Magic Bullet stuff which chokes - even in Premiere etc. The only other really slow plug-in I've tried in FCPX is Film Convert, which is even worse than MB stuff.

But thanks for the tech lesson and deep insight into what ALL the companies are saying "off the record".
