So, about time for an update about the After Effects/OpenFX G'MIC plugins !
I managed to port everything to the new G'MIC 2.x version now. The current builds are based on the most recent G'MIC version (2.0.3pre) and come with lots of new effects.
I also updated the sources with some bugfixes and speed improvements.
In the next 2-3 weeks, I hope to have full sources and binaries for WIndows, Mac and Linux for After Effects and OpenFX plugins available.
I will also create a separate webpage where you can download the binaries as a single package for each platform, together with installation and compilation instructions and some other stuff that might be interesting for C/C++ developers concerning the usage of the G'MIC library.

Until then, I leave you with a picture of the new Smooth Thin effect running in Natron on Windows as a native OpenFX plugin. :)

Ok, I decided to make the current binaries available of my work-in-progress on G'MIC as a plugin for Adobe hosts (After Effects and Premiere Pro) and OpenFX (Nuke, Natron, etc.). Full sources as well as builds for Linux and MacOS should (hopefully) also be out later this year.

G'MIC interface for Adobe After Effects and OpenFX hosts
Version 0.1 (first beta/preview release, Windows binaries only!)

WHAT IS IT?
This is an attempt to make (part of) the functionality of the G'MIC open-source framework for image processing (http://www.gmic.eu) available in video editing hosts.

WARNING
This is a very early test release/preview, use at your own risk! Expect crashes and weird behaviour.
Feel free to report any errors you encounter, but be aware that this is pretty much still a proof-of-concept prototype interface.

LIMITATIONS
- Windows only (MacOS and Linux versions planned for the future)
- supported hosts:
Adobe After Effects (CS6 or higher)
Adobe Premiere Pro (CS6 or higher)
OpenFX hosts like The Foundry Nuke, Natron, Sony Vegas, etc.
- early beta, many things might not work as intended and plugin may crash the host!

WHERE TO GET IT
[direct download link removed, drop me a note if interested]

Happy New Year, everyone!
And here is some big news for the first day of the year: I managed to get a first build of my +G'MIC bridge running in Natron 2.0 on Linux (Ubuntu 15.10 64bit)! Hundreds of effects available natively! Open source FTW!

Another day, another big improvement for my +G'MIC OpenFX plugin: now all effects using gimp_layer_... commands should work, like the "Bokeh" effect pictured below running in Natron. It seems those commands simply required a valid name for the layer, and for the pixel buffers I send to G'MIC, I had previously only used an empty string as the name. A tiny thing, hard to find, but now it works and my plugin is another step closer to being released :-)

Something I have been working on for the last few weeks and that you can look forward to in the new year:
G'MIC effects working as native plugins (Adobe or OpenFX) in various hosts!
Among the supported applications:
- The Foundry Nuke
- Natron
- Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve
- Sony Vegas Pro
- Adobe After Effects
- Adobe Premiere Pro
- etc. etc.

Another day with great progress concerning the +G'MIC OpenFX plugin! I found out why some plugins would not work at all, e.g. "Details equalizer": OFX requires parameter names to be unique, but some effects in the G'MIC standard library use the same parameter name several times. I added code to automatically detect and fix this by adding a suffix to such parameters.
So the good news is now that even more G'MIC effects work out of the box in OpenFX hosts, like the "Charcoal" effect pictured below in Natron 2.0. :-)
