Make All Effects 32bit Compatible

I use After Effects for compositing my 3D renders, and I always export 16 or 32 bit EXRs, starting to use ACES. Unfortunately, many, many effects are still only 8 bit, some support 16, and some can do 32. If you don't want to lose me and many other compositors (at least those that are left), please update more effects to 32bit!

You could update all the effects to make a precise compatibility between them and 32 bpc footage and compositions.

Would be nice to work with 32 bit footage and not clamp values when trying to use some effects, namely Liquify.

It would be great to see all of the effects able to render at 32-bit color depth. (I have no clue how big of an ask that is, but it would be nice to simply know that you can set your color depth as needed and forget it.)

All the distortion tools should be usable in all colorspaces, but this would be a start

Especially as people adopt ACES as a workflow, this is much needed.

Yes, please!!!! I understand that's probably quite a feat to update all effects to 32 bit (or at least most of them) but being able to work in 32 bit is necessary in compositing nowadays.

What do you say to the AE ACES Workflow? 😄 ...I think 32 Bit Effects are by far not enough. What is with a new and modern color management system, with 100% GPU Support?

Agreed! Mesh warp, CC composite, Liquify, Extract, 4-color gradient, Vector Blur plugins (amongst others) have been crucial for my compositing workflow, but still don't have 32 bit support.
