Script versus plugin


#1

Hey team!

I’m working on a bunch of tools. See a snapshot here: https://twitter.com/luke_prowse/status/1095302793055952897

What reason would one have to develop a filter plugin over a script?


#2

A filter can be applied on export.


#3

That is true.

The only other reason I can see is commercial… hiding of source code, controlling updates etc.

Would it be true to say a filter can access the wider system or perform in-app functionalities that a script can’t?


#4

The access of the API is the same. The filter can use other languages like ObjectivC or whatever the scripting bridge allows you.

Thanks Georg.
