Understanding the NLE API

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Effects

Video plug-ins can be integrated into an NLE if they adhere to the edit manufacturer’s API (application program interface). Some manufacturers have proprietary APIs, while others adopt one of the several common APIs in current use. An API not only provides the socket needed by the effects plug-in to work within an NLE, but it also ensures that the plug-in’s controls use the same user interface controls as the rest of the effects in that NLE.
