In this article you'll learn what plugins are, what the differences are between Autokroma plugins and why they are available with different licenses for each Adobe CC Host.
There are two main ways to extend features of Adobe CC Video softwares (Premiere Pro, Media Encoder, After Effects) :
We develop two native C++ plugins : BRAW Studio (Importer type, step 1) of the diagram) and AfterCodecs ((Exporter type, step 3) of the diagram). They are both useful for different goals : AfterCodecs will provide you new codecs to export your projects whereas BRAW Studio will provide you the ability to import the new Blackmagic RAW
.braw format developed by Blackmagic Design for their new cameras and new firmwares (not the old CinemaDNG
That means you can use them both at the same time inside the same project inside the same Adobe host if you have the need to both import
.braw and export in new codecs. You don't need BRAW Studio to export in the new codecs given by AfterCodecs and you don't need AfterCodecs to import
.braw. Moreover, AfterCodecs won't let you export
braw and BRAW Studio won't let you export in new codecs, so you should license the right plugin for the right need.
AfterCodecs is available in a separate License unique for each Host (Premiere Pro, Media Encoder and After Effects). BRAW Studio is also available in two different licenses : one for Premiere Pro + Media Encoder and the other one for After Effects.
As we developed the plugins gradually over time, more hosts became available, so they were sold in new licenses for new hosts. This separation of licenses is also made so that each use case is cheaper and can be bought individually instead of buying all features at the same time. Some examples :
.brawinside After Effects you can only purchase BRAW Studio for After Effects. You'll be able to send your AEfx projects into Adobe Media Encoder and render them from there with this license.
