Hi, I need to get the timeline video file paths for the Video Filter plug-in. On the Premiere Pro UI in the tab Assembly, it's possible to get properties of each video that contain the video file path (attached picture). Is there a way to fetch this file name in plug-in using SDK? Thanks in advance.
I planned to create a video filter plug-in, but video processing would be in a separate localhost web service (like a daemon), not into plug-in. So I supposed that I could send the current video file path to the service for processing video. Then the resulting video would be rendered using plug-in methods. Such architecture would give me the ability not to strongly depend on SDK entities. Do I have an opportunity to realize such plug-in architecture?
What you've described, completely avoids plug-in architecture. 🙂
Video effects are provided input pixel buffers, which they then process, and return into output pixel buffers. Having that processing occur elsewhere would be profoundly inefficient, likely unusable.
If you're getting the path for external processing, then "rendered using plug-in methods" doesn't make any sense; your service would need to understand every input file format PPro does in order to access the media those files contain, and would need to produce pixel buffers in the correct output format (which varies), and somehow pass them back to PPro.
Doing that remotely, many times per second, for large pixel buffers, would make remote processing exceedingly slow.
