Frank, a button push, huh? Still a great effect in your overall design no matter how you came about it. (He's so good, I half expected him to say he used a radial blur and a lighting effect)

Another vector simplication.

Hey Palms,

Thought I would pass on this wc vector simplication to you and all. Attached is a lower quality crop; here's the full high quality rendering.

palms,

thanks

filter forge is in beta. i signed up and was approved. this was from a post by doug nelson in the software forum. at first you could only get the download by signing up. now, i'm not sure. some seem to have gotten it without signing up. but, if you dont sign up for the beta then the demo is a trial, time limited version which runs out in 30 days.

but, these guys are doing some good things. if you get the demo and submit 3 filters and they are approved, you get the full, registered version for free. i think the beta testers may get a free version also, but not real sure of that. but it is the normal exchange for helping them get a release version.

so, yes, i do recommend it. it's very powerful yet very simple to use and the list of approved filters is growing. by the time of release you're going to be getting a good program with a LOT of already made filters. the developers seem very concientious and responsive. the program is very stable already and the developers seem very dedicated to making this a long term commitment. so, even if you never make a filter yourself, you're going to get a bunch of pre-made ones.

and yes, i am getting the hang of it but you shld see what some of the others are doing with this thing. it's really quite amazing! byRo and cameraken have both signed up also and we were told that there are 1200 registered testers now. not sure when they're going to stop taking applications or if they have already.

and just one last note on this. making a filter is as much fun as making an art rendition here on these forums, except when you make a filter you get 50 renditions

and here's another i did with filter forge. the exception here is that i brought it back into psp and did some more work on it, mainly with the canvas texture. it seemed very asian, japanese or chinese to me.

palms,

i'm in the 'wow' mode also. FF is just blowing me away and this is just the beta. i've been using the 'clematis' image to test my filters and every once in a while i save one out. i have over 20 so far that i've liked well enough to save. and, having just made another filter, there are more to come

i also just downloaded a filter off the forums. this one adds over 10,000 lens effects all in the one filter. this thing is what all of us non-coder type folks have been looking for. attached is just one effect.
