moire pattern removal

i had a need to use the moire pattern removal filter in ps cs2 yesterday and no matter what i did i could not get the 'ok' button to un-ghost. the filter would come up; i could change the 'angle' and other slider, but could not get the 'ok' button to unghost, and therefore couldnt use the filter. it's in the filters > noise menu items.

i looked all through the F1 help section and couldnt even find a reference to it. i looked in the paper manual that came with cs2 and nothing in there on it. i went onto the adobe site and couldnt find anything there either.

anyone got any clues here?

Re: moire pattern removal

Craig, were you perhaps trying to do it on a background layer which is locked by default or had you perhaps locked the layer you were trying to apply the filter to. And I have CS2 but I don't have that filter or are you just giving an ordinary filter a fancy name?

Re: moire pattern removal

ok, so you think i'm crazy. well, that's ok; half the time i think i am too. but in this case it turns out i'm not

here's a screenshot. i did have the name slightly wrong, but it is in filters > noise. and no, you can see it's not on a locked layer that i'm trying to apply this to.

oh, and i dont know if it was there or not before the last update. i have version 9.0.2, if that helps explain why i have it and some others maybe dont. though, i dont know that for sure.

anyways, here's the screenshot:

edit: and apparently adobe doesnt even know they have this. and as you can see, the 'ok' is ghosted and i cant figure out how to apply the thing. i can move the 'smoothness' slider and can change the angle just fine, but nothing i've done so far allows the 'ok' to be active. i can also cancel and see the example.

Re: moire pattern removal

Well, That fileter must be coming from some third party software, cause my CS2 noise filter doesn't have a moire filter! I want one! I want one!!!

Re: moire pattern removal

It is third-party and the reason the OK button is grayed-out is because you probably have a demo version that only allows you to preview the filter. The OK button is available once you activate the software.

Might be from DVP Technologies Ltd? http://www.dvp.co.il/

Looks interesting.

Re: moire pattern removal

Still think byRo's method is one of the best. I've tried the LAB method too, but had's off to byRo. Only wish I was half as smart as he is (would probably still be an Engineer if I was).

Re: moire pattern removal

ok, that was it. it's the dvp eye fidelity le (lite edition) plugin. fooled me because it wasnt in the normal place i look for plugins. i put it over on psp xi and it came up exactly as i'd seen it in ps cs2. so, that's it.

looks like a good filter, if anyone's interested.

thanks, misterjp

Re: moire pattern removal

I had to laugh Craig (Kraellin ) as I have that same filter and I wrote to the company asking how could I use a demo with no OK button, even the demo of the full has the same issue. The preview looks great but no way to accept. All I got back was an instruction PDF which still did not tell me how to use it with OK.

If anybody has this or has used it, what did you think. I found that it appears to have great potential.

The best manual method is to use LaB, I will try and add more details later.

Re: moire pattern removal

lk, what is byRo's technique?

and creeduk, did they tell you you had to register and get a key/code to unlock the filter(s)? also, what is your Lab method?
