OFX is an open standard for 3rd party plugins. Mistika support OFX plugins such as Sapphire, Boris, Neat video, etc.
They will work in Mistika Ultima and Mistika Boutique products. Mistika VR does not have support for OFX plugins.
Please note than 3rd party plugins are sold, licensed, and supported by their own manufacturers, not by SGO. If a particular OFX plugin does not officially support Mistika it may fail in this application, and the support for it needs to be implemented by the plugin manufacturer.
First check in the plugin documentation which Mistika version is compatible with it (or ask your OFX plugin provider). Some OFX plugins work with all Mistika versions, but not all. For example, if the date of the plugin is very recent compared with the date of the Mistika version you may need the previous version of the plugin until there is a new Mistika version available
Once installed (just follow the instructions of the OFX plugin manufacturer), a new tab for it should appear at the left menu of the FX panel in Mistika, just under the "Mistika" tab.
If it does not appear in there then you will need to add an entry for it in the Mistika OFX configuration file, which is named OFXConfig.xml :
Windows: C:\Users\MY_USER_NAME\SGO AppData\Mistika\config/OFXConfig.xml
Mac: /Users/MY_USER_NAME/SGO AppData/Mistika/config/OFXConfig.xml
Linux: $HOME/SGO AppData/Mistika/config/OFXConfig.xml
In that file, add an entry like this (similar to the others):
If your plugin doesn't appear in the Mistika FX panel you can try this:
Enable loading all installed plugins. this can be done editing the OfxConfig.xml file and changing the "Default" entry to Valid=1:
This will force load all the installed plugins even the ones which don't have a configuration entry.
You can also check for errors when the plugin is loaded (or if they show bad behaviour). For this, execute mistika from a console to see the debug traces. If an OFX plugin fails to load, a message is printed like this:
OpenFX library [full_path_to_plugin_binary] load error detected: [error_text]
