Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

I don't get the warm-fuzzies from Flaming Pear. Their plug-ins are great, but the developer simply does not respond to emails (and many on various forums have expressed dissatisfaction with post-purchase tech support as well).

I tried for a few years to contact them (even through a third-party) and gave up--that's why you don't see any of their stuff listed on my website.

As for the upcoming Lucis Pro 6, it is designed to run on Intel processors. That's part of a number of modern improvements to the original LucisArt plug-in.

Mr. Contrast Unlike Lucis works already for CS3 and Cost pennies compared to the WAY over priced Lucis Plug-in.
You really think people are going to buy Lucis at that price..
Seriously...?
Not trying to bash it at all, but the price is just ridiculous.

Lucis is Nice but no way is it worth that kind of money.

None of us (including myself) have seen the final new version of Lucis Pro 6 (I do have a demo with two-slider and individual channel capability, though), but I understand it's much more than just a simple update of the old LucisArt plug-in... As soon as I can get my hands on it I'll post more details.

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

I guess we will never see the "old software business model" where your first purcahse was the investment. Then as long as you upgraded every 2nd upgrade, the cost was minimal (maybe 10% of original cost). Todays model is more like a repeated cost of 80 plus of the origianl cost to upgrade. It is becoming like a subscription rather than an investment in productivity. I dislike it.

I have a complete "On One" plug in package ($$$$$$) and they just came up with an upgrade that adds some focus plug ins and they expect you to pay full price for the whole suite to "upgrade", Riiigggghhhhttt! As they say in the used car business, "there is a butt for every seat", or put in the words of P. T. Barnam, "There is a sucker born every day"!

Dear God man. 58 pages attempting to copy someone's worn out look? This is not retouching. Learn how to color correct skin first.

For some of us this is just a fun distraction. Don't you get bored of highend
all the time? You're from NY right? Go take a break and see Bon Iver live or
something. May help to de-stress.

For 58 pages,,,you haven't said shit you haven't given any good advice on anything! Some people(you) are born in to this world just to complain! Stay away! Please...if you don't have anything remotely creative that can help us further, why even bother to lash out! Jeez!

BTW: Thanks MTMM, for that nice link! Really nice to see the before and after!
