    OK then, everybody should donate at least $25! This is just too good to not be compensated.  Great job and thanks!

    Re: Blend modes - homemade avx

    I feel I am missing something to get this installed. When I open the AVX2xBlend Plug-in File, it launches Avid automatically, but does not appear in the Effect Pallette. Anyone else run into this? I'm curious to try this out! 

    Thanks,

    Kyle

    Re: Blend modes - homemade avx

    You have to drop the .avx file into the AVX2_Plug-ins folder and then launch MC. 

    I'm on a PC today, so I'm unsure of the exact path for the folder on a Mac, but the PC folder is 

    C:\Program Files\Avid\AVX2_Plug-ins

    So, I would guess the Mac would be something like Applications\Avid\AVX2_Plug-ins

    It crashes my avid 8.3 on osx 10.11.6 on startup and the system wants to create a crashlog. :(

    Re: Blend modes - homemade avx

    Has anyone else noticed an increase in render times with Beta3?

    I have a short 2 minute sequence stacked as follows 

     

    V1: photos (30 frame dissolves between)

    V2: color effect (saturation set to 0)

    V3: BCC Gaussian Blur

    V4: Avid title (using as a solid color matte - i stripped the title effect off)

    V5: Matte Key text layer (pngs rendered from After Effects imported with alpha channel)

     

    I placed the Blend-X plugin on the V4 clips and set it to render and it was creeping along saying it would take upwards of 1 hour for this 2 minute sequence.

    I disable the V4 track in the timeline and render and it finishes within a reasonable amount of time given the effects stacked.

    Re: Blend modes - homemade avx

    Kenton , as you already own BCC, try to compare BCC composite vs blend-x speed inside same sequence and report back. I never tried to compare , but it’s very interesting.

    Re: Blend modes - homemade avx

    So, this morning I cleared the renders on my sequence and then rendered with the BCC Composite effect (soft light). 

    Then I cleared renders again, removed the BCC Composite and placed Blend-X (soft light) on the sequence. I also modified the magic slider a little. 

    With BCC Composite the render took 4:33

    With Blend-X I killed the render after it had been running for 17 mins

    Re: Blend modes - homemade avx

    Thanks Kenton. Could you provide some more info for my science:) 

    which OS and MC version do you use?

    what was the target resolution ,  codec and did you used any special settings for “render bit depth ?”

    Sorry, I should know better about providing my testing specs. 

    This system is Win10, MC 2018.12.6. I'm rendering as DNX145 in a non-Interplay shared environment. No special settings for bit depth etc.

    Re: Blend modes - homemade avx

    Thank you Kenton. I’ve made some experiments but on MacBook Pro 2017 and Mc 2019.x - the render times are better in newer blendX betas but surely must be improved much more.

    Thanks Andre.

     

    I found and squashed this bug. :) Thanks to your feedback.

    Wait for blendx- beta4 - it will be there soon

    Re: Blend modes - homemade avx

    You're great!

    Years ago MDV, today xBlend (or maybe Blend-X).

    Just test it here @office on 2018.1/Win10.

    Seems working fine but I've a question for you: I'd like to use screen blending-mode on a AMC generated Title or on a clip that has it's alpha-channel...

     

    Can it be done?

     

    Hope you'll refresh MDV for Windows sooner or later...

     

    A big thanks!
