anyone know how to develop a plugin for combustion ？or for AE ,shake ... i know max script , maybe there have some sdk tools for me to make effects of my own freely . i wish it can call combustion functions and do more .
The base SDK for AE and Combustion is the same, it's the AE effects SDK.
Combustion also has a few internal things, like a framebuffer thing...
For AE, at some point Profound Effects was doing a Python scriptable framework to script your own effects.
Shake has a completely different C++ SDK then what AE & Combustion uses, and is a bit harder to deal (can be obscure at first).
Shake also has a scriptable macro model which allows you to use a C-like syntax scripting to encapsulate different effects into what they call a macro.
Combustion also has macros but they are not as scriptable although you have ways to publish in the GUI only the parameters you want to show.
