    Re: When will MC finally get blending modes like other NLE's . . ?

    Bay7:
    Is there a secret sauce?
    Probably, I just do not know what it is.
    It originally worked for me with W7 (before Fusion was available for Mac) At the same time some here confirmed it worked whilst others with very similar systems to mine did not get the auto open to work.  Some update broke it from auto opening Fusion but the comp file hack worked. 
    The Fusion 9 release with Edit Connection did not auto open with W7 here, BUT it does with W10. I have not updated Fusion 9.0 and it is still working.   So from my experience I have no idea how to find the secret sauce. 

    FWIW My reading indicates that there have been some reliability issues with Resolve timeline / Edit connection to Fusion 9. The only NLE that I have not heard about having odd issues using Edit Connection is Lightworks Pro.

    I like the nodal interface far better than the Avid FX / Red 5.6 workflow that I have now all but phased out here.

    Hey all......

    I pssed all this along to the product management team.   

    We do have plans to fix this in 2019 with the UI redo, but we are actively trying to get these in 2018 so it comes sooner than later.  We’ll see.. how the development progresses.  Regardless, its something we know we need to do.

    Marianna

     

    Any updates on when this will be implemented?

    Pat Horridge:

    To be honest apart from simple TV Post most people only use MC for offline work. Finishing in MC hasn't really moved along in decades. lots of people round trip to resolve and finish that way. A much cheaper option.

     

     

    This comment is wrong.  Watch a tony scott movie, im pretty sure those were done in the edit.  Most finishing people are not spending as much time as editors expirmenting with blending images and stylized transitions when they're billing by the minute.  You have to do it in the offline first.

    I use avid fx all the time to blend images, the problem is when you work on long form, avid fx (which hasnt been upgraded in years) makes MC unstable and sluggish.

    So Yes, I'd love non plugin blending modes.  If I don't paint, I'm not going to tell a painter his brushes are not needed.

    +1 for built in scale multiply blending
