    I think this is right. I mean, nobody would introduce an editor today that doesn't have this feature, no matter how inexpensive or non-professional. It's just a basic feature.  Avid First will be ignored and laughed off the stage if it doesn't have this basic, basic feature. It would be like not being able to add transitions.

    That being said, Media Composer will likely not have this feature until 2019 or longer based on the roadmap from NAB.

    So. Avid FX and the cheapest plugin for this, RED, are both End of Life. MC 2018+ kind of ustable with these old plugins. This now becomes a 1000$ feature to pull off. Continuum/Sapphire to do blending? Having 30 machines do that will not happen. Doing flares and other overlays on TV-shows only in online is not happening. So the struggle is to stay at some kind of Avid MC version that still supports Avid FX but still supports enough new file-formats until this feature arrives. 8.6.5 stable for now.

    The "Avid is NLE, not for finishing" is getting really old. With that argument, You could say edit in Avid, do dissolves in After Effects. Blending modes is not an effect, it's as basic as changing transparancy, size, position of a segment.

    Could it be possible to crowdfund someone to do a 64-bit version of the dmn transfer plugin? :)

    Tried using Fusion Connect to do this, which works but is a hell of a workaround. Not suitable for multi-user environments.

    Premiere user here, trying to learn about AVID. How on earth are there no blending options? I use this effect all the time...very annoying. I am not going waste 1000$ on third party software, for an effect that every other NLE is using. Very unprofessional

    Very interesting... thanks. I'm sure there's alot to it. I noticed that in my FX palette, I have something called "Light Leaks" from IGNITE FX. Also, Glow and Light Streak FX which include that whole long list of modes: Add, Burn, Dodge, Difference, Hardlight, Multiplt, etc. Plus lots of Boris-like tweakables, at low cost.

    Re: Media Composer Transfer modes/Layer blending

    I'm surprised that it's something that Avid seem unable to do.  I've written a series of effects for another edit system, and it isn't that hard.  The algorithms are out there, and reasonably well known.  I'll make a present of "Screen" to you, Avid devs.  Add the foreground to the background, subtract the foreground multiplied by the background from that, and limit the result to the range you need.

    That wasn't hard, was it?  Expressed as C-like operation, it is ret = clamp (Fgd + Bgd - (Fgd * Bgd), BLACK, WHITE), where BLACK and WHITE are as defined for your effects engine.

    Now go to it!

    Re: Media Composer Transfer modes/Layer blending

    This is probably a waste of a message, but would it be realistic to do a Kickstarter to develop an AVX plugin for this?

    I imagine a price point of $20 (?) would generate a resonable return for a developer, given the monopoly currently enjoyed by Boris.

    Re: Media Composer Transfer modes/Layer blending

    20 clams, sure but I’m looking at that Wiki link, I’m looking at the set of MC-capable giveaway AVX Ignite FX that I got a couple years ago, and I am asking any of the editors that need and use these blending modes— what exactly are they used for mostly? Is it for transitions like “Light Leaks”, or is it much more than that?

    What is the difference between that free DMN AVX plugin that I sort of remember from yesteryear vs.  the new FREE Ignite FX plugins available on their site, (or the non-free sale-priced approx, $150 U.S. full version)?

    I don’t know how these blending modes are used in other NLEs, but it sure seems like some of the Ignite FX, which as I have seen on my own system have at least two in their Light FX category which make use of the same blending mode concepts (i.e. Add, Substract, Diffetence, etc. etc,) is aiming in this direction.
