Ability to localize progress updates (Sony proposal)
not needed (most plug-ins don’t localize)
Render Quality settings (Sony proposal)
Discussion was had around how many values, and what they should mean.
Decision made to reduce this to two levels (preview and final) and then folks might be interested
Multi-view (The Foundry and Sony proposals)
Re:Vision and Sony to re-propose as simple stereo extension, then work with Assimilate to see that it makes sense in other apps.
Deep image support
Deferred til after multi-view is approved
Peter Litwinowicz discussed the need for hosts to support animated parameters, including choice parameters (typically implemented with combobox-like UI). Some hosts don’t and this complicated their plug-ins. Re:Vision would like all hosts to do this. They would also like to see Vegas support image layers as inputs.
Sony has an “image” param type; they will work with Re:Vision to refine it into a proposal.
The group then discussed other possible extensions, such as a data pool that plug-ins could put information in and other plug-ins could retrieve it later. This would allow general point tracker plug-ins to pipe into corner-pin plug-ins, for example. Certain data types could be pre-defined by the OFXA, such as point track data.
Sony raised a question about whether plug-ins would like to know the colorspace of inputs? Some discussion was had, without a firm proposal. It is more complicated than it appears.
Proposal to offer TuttleOFX (open-source OFX host) and/or other relevant open-source projects one year free membership, as an open-source contributor.
Question: what would the organization like in return, if anything?
Any such members should be approved by the current members
A question was posed as to how many OFX members support Mac. Almost all do.
