What does it take to write script/plugin for Motion?

Hi,
I have no clue about this but I was wondering what would it take to write a plugin/script for M5? I'm thinking about something like "Ease & Wizz", "Split Layers", or "Rubberize it" like for after effects ?
Thanks

Well, much of that is already done in Motion with various parameter and object behaviors.  But what can and can not be done in FxPlug, well, I'd find a developer and ask them.  They're all pretty nice about sharing information, just not company secrets.  I'm not a programmer.  I know "of" FxPlug", I know the basic structure, but I'm far from a programer.  If you learned FxPlug, you'd probably also want to dive into Quartz Composer, too.  Tons of stuff in FCPX, Motion, and other apps, are built with Quartz Composer.  I know just enough of QC to destroy whatever it is I'm trying to build, not enough to do anything real with.  They're both relatively easy if you are dedicated enough.

  • What does it take to build smart card applications?

    Just out of interest I was wondering what does it take to build smart card applications:
    - Can I do it at home with my PC or do I have to have access to expensive hardware?
    - How difficult is it to master given that I do it on my own with no help. Does it involve a lot of hardware issues?
    - If hardware is required (a smart card and a cable connection), where do I get it and how much does it cost?

    Let me rephrase my question.
    I understand that the deployment process may not be so easy. That does not disturb me.
    I just want to know whether I'll experience hardware probelms. If reading/writing to the card involves putting it inside and taking it outside from the device just like a floppy disk without any complications, then I don't have any worries.
    By the way, does the reader device is used for both reading AND writing?

  • Encore: what does it take to get an input legal?

    I know this is a bit off topic from Premiere SDK but since there is no Encore (highly technical) forum I thought it best to post here instead of emailing Zac directly (so that others may learn the answer).
    My question is this:
         Specifically, what does it take for Encore to NOT transcode an input video file for DVD (mpeg2) or BluRay (mpeg4) destination?
    thx.

  • What does it take to get my service cancelled?

    I am trying to find out what it will take to get my account cancelled... I called more than a week in advance of my move to set up the cancellation of my FIOS home service and was assured that was all I needed to do; I would receive my final bill in the mail. However, a week after I moved, my account was charged and my autopay paid my bill of nearly $200 for services this month in a home I no longer live in, for an account that should no longer be active. I called and spoke with no fewer than 12 agents over that week, including someone who after 43 minutes of being passed around HUNG UP on me! Finally I spoke with someone who was helpful and said my account was deactivated, and in about 14 business days I should get a refund check in the mail. Well, three weeks later, my account has still not been cancelled and I have not gotten my refund! I just called again and spoke with an agent who told me he couldn't help me and I needed to call back another office on Monday. It has been nearly a month since I moved and this account was supposed to be cancelled and I still cannot get anyone to just stop the account! What does it take at Verizon to end my service???

  • What does it take to get an app on the Ovi store?

    What does it take to get an app on the ovi store?  There are so many apps available that are not included in the ovi store.... like "s60spoton"  It allows you to use your cameras flash as a flash light! I've been wanting this forever.  If this app was easily available on the Ovi store, I would have been able to find it easily... but it was linked to me in a forum. 
    Why are there so many useful apps not cataloged in the Ovi store? 

    It's the maker of an apps responsibility to get it listed on the store so if it's not on there it's because the maker hasn't put it there.
    Nokia cannot put apps on the store without the makers consent.
    Only the maker/publisher of an app can tell you why their app isn't on the store. It may be for financial reasons, legal reasons, licensing issues, piracy concerns or they may just have ceased development and moved on.
    The ovi store isn't the only source of applications and some developers prefer to use independant sites like www.getjar.com instead.

  • What does it take

    Hey guys
    I have iCaht AV 2.1 and a Powerbook g4 etc etc and I am trying to set up a chat with my Dad in Australia on an IBM thinkpad running Windows XP and AIM Trillion or whatever it is.
    What does it take to ACTUALLY have a 2-way Video chat coz NOTHING we are doing is working.... I have read REAMS of stuff on this forum - Ralph has established my computer can actually recieve and send both video and audio... but it just will NOT work. What is the BEST modem and broadband provider here in the UK and in Australia???
    What does it take to actually make it work???
    If nothing works - I want my money back from buying a completely USELESS iSight to do this..... It would be easier to book satellite time and use a flyaway kit complete with crews either end than to try to use this to have 2-ways......
    AAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!
    G4 PowerBook 1.25gHz   Mac OS X (10.3.9)  

    Among the reams, have you looked at Mac Video Chat with PCs?
    Both of you should test with others. You can find some robot ("Autoresponder") and human Buddy Names for iChat Test here if you need them. Testing will help you find whose system needs the most attention.
    Since you have now apparently connected with Ralph, it seems your computer can connect. Has your Dad tried others? Perhaps the problem is at Dad's end. If so, the list of things for the PC to check in my link above should be helpful.
    Check your Broadband Speed. Some Australian broadband can be on the slow side. Therefore, if your Dad already subscribes to the maximum bandwidth that is available from his Australian ISP, he should be particularly careful that his AIM "Video Quality" is not set too high (as explained in the "Mac Video Chat with PCs" link.)

  • What does it Take... What is the Wizer Move?

    What does it take? What is the Wiser Move?
    Currently we are running Oracle EBS 11.5.10 with an RDBMS 10.2.0.4 on Windows 2003 32 bit. We would like to get to a 64 bit OS and we are looking at 64 bit Linux or Windows. I am interested in two main areas.
    1.     Where is the path of lease resistance/easiest moving from Windows 32 bit to Windows 64 bit or Linux 64 bit? At first glance you would think Windows 32 bit to Windows 64 bit.
    2.     What it the “Best” path. In the long run I would think we would be better off going Windows 32 bit to Linux 64 bit, but what would that take.
    Any thoughts are welcome.

    Hi Chris,
    1.     Where is the path of lease resistance/easiest moving from Windows 32 bit to Windows 64 bit or Linux 64 bit? At first glance you would think Windows 32 bit to Windows 64 bit.You cannot run Oracle Apps 11i on Windows 64-bit OS as the application tier is not certified to run on this OS. For the database, it is possible by following the steps in (Note: 369693.1 - Using Oracle Applications with a Split Configuration Database Tier on Oracle 10g Release 2). Also, please see (Note: 343917.1 - Frequently Asked Questions: Oracle E-Business Suite Support on x86-64).
    2.     What it the “Best” path. In the long run I would think we would be better off going Windows 32 bit to Linux 64 bit, but what would that take.You will have to use export/import to move the database -- See (Note: 362205.1 - 10g Release 2 Export/Import Process for Oracle Applications Release 11i) for details, and (Note: 238276.1 - Migrating to Linux with Oracle Applications Release 11) for the application tier node.
