    Sad [:(] Keylight not compatible with DS 11

    I recently updated to Avid DS 11 and discovered when trying to reinstall Keylight that it is no longer compatible.  I wrote to the Foundry support team and was told -

    "Unfortunately there are no plans at present to develop a native DS version of Keylight for DS 11. Our Plug-ins team have looked into this and unfortunately there isn't enough demand at present for it to be cost effective for us to develop with the engineering resources we have."

    They did suggest a untested and "completely unsupported" workaround using the OFX plug in which may or may not work and would require me buying the Nuke OFX version!

     

    This brings up several issues.

    Firstly I'll find it hard to invest in any Foundry products in the future given their attitude to their existing users.  This is the second time they've dumped a plugin that my company has invested in.

    Secondly it's worrying that they think the DS, as a platform is not worth supporting.  Keylight is available for Autodesk products, After Effects, Nuke, Fusion, etc

    Thirdly, as the standard DS chroma keyer is quite basic what third party keyer would the forum recommend as a replacement?

    I must say that is disappointing and worrying. I was thinking of moving up to V11 from 10 but I like keylight. 

    I guess the issue is that Avid need to demonstarte a positive message about the future of DS.

    Thanks for the link.  I'm getting a demo license for Primatte and I'll let you know how I get on.
