Video Copilot's Optical Flares for Nuke?

Anyone in the industry have any news on the status of Video Copilot's Optical Flares Plugin for Nuke? Last summer there was some movement on this but I have not seen any updates for this in the past year.

Cheers,
Dan

Weird, I thought it was because I have an Optical Flares node in Nuke (though it doesn't work because I upgraded my machine and haven't installed OF at all), but when I google this it doesn't seem to be out yet... maybe it was a beta we have? Dunno...

You'd think there's a few free plugins that could do similar optical fx. Obviously not as many options as VCP but something close.

pretty sure there was a thread on vfxtalk the other day.
one of the users (who works for the foundry) said it would be out soon, and that we should keep an eye out.
but nothing official

Thanks for the info Tom. I'm going to try and contact a couple of guys over at DD because I thought they may have been testing it out.

gauranga, I've used Sapphire but it has a pretty steep pricetag, around 3K. It has a lot more tools than just flares though. Optical Flares is by far the best flare system I have used.

Have you seen FlareFactory Plus? It is studio-tested and mother-approved flare tool for nuke.
