Standard version: 1.5
Plugins with private data currently save their values into custom params, which are simply strings. It would be more efficient to allow plugins to encode/decode serialised data with a binary blob.
We add another param type, kOfxParamTypeBinaryBlob, which can be used to store binary data. Such params have the following properties….
kOfxPropDataSize - 64 bit unsigned integer indicating the size of the blob
Do we need another suite to manage binary data blobs, basically allocating and freeing the things. Or should we just use the memory suite and allow allocation from that?
