Option for disabling NeatVideo

Post by Fifonik » Tue May 22, 2012 3:38 am

My projects have many different fragments. Some of them require noise removing so I use Neat Video plugin in theirs filters chains.

As you know, the Neat Video plugin is a bit processor hungry (I'm talking about HD videos) so after adding the plugin I can't preview the fragment in real time. However, sometimes I need to watch fragments or the whole project in real time or make a draft-render a region or the whole project.

I would like to disable Neat Video plugin for all fragments at that time. Unfortunately, there is no easy ways to do that. I have to open FX chains on every fragment separately and disable the plugin the the chain.
I can't move all fragments that require noise removing to a separate video track and apply Neat Video plugin for that track only. Well, technically I can, however I'd like to tune Neat Video profile for every fragment separately so this is not a solution.

I'd like to see in Neat Video Preferences | Menu | Toolbar option for global disabling the plugin. This will allow me to disable/enable Neat Video plugin in all my FX chains by one click.
Actually, it could be 2 dependant checkboxes:
1. Disable Neat Video
2. Add text "Neat Video is disabled" into resulting video.
The last option will not allow me to forget that I've disabled the plugin by my own :)

Thanks.

The idea is indeed very good and in fact we already have something like that in the wish list, so we do plan to look into that to find a simple and clear way to temporarily disable all instances of the filter. We will likely add such a possibility in one of the newer versions.

Did this ever get implemented? It's most absolutely my #1 requested feature. I use FCPX. This would make my life wonderful if I could globally switch on/off all instances.

Possibly even better would be an option to only enable on export of the video, or on render, though I don't know if the APIs will allow that context-sensitivity.

But I would be willing to even do a kludge for now, like swapping a dummy plugin in and out on the filesystem or something. Anything. Please.

Unfortunately this has not yet been implemented but we do have this option in our development plans. We are considering the ways to provide such a function. It would also have to work in different host applications, so it must be quite universal. Replacing the file would most likely not be good enough I am afraid.

Why not add some simple logic to test for a boolean that will enabled/disable all filtering?

You could have a GUI checkbox option "Disable all Instances of Neatvideo Temporarily".

I know I say this without knowing your internal code structure, but you could encapsulate the filtering logic in a master procedure (call it a container if you want) whose single purpose is to test for that boolean and if it is true, proceed with all the filtering logic. If false, exit gracefully and pass through the data unchanged?

Probably don't even need to do that, I guess.. You could just make sure the first thing that gets checked is that boolean.

I know its probably harder than I make it sound.. But I suppose it is what I would do if I were writing a filter.
