The plugin crashed on me once, but I have not been able to reproduce the problem. It worked again after I restarted Photoshop.

sounds a lot like a registry crash, where you havent rebooted yet to make a new reg entry take effect.

You can apply feather after you have made selection by GrowCut, so we did not want to double the PS functionality. Regarding soft selections (like Extract does) - this is a topic for future work...

I see that GrowCut can manage quite well with just a few loose brush strokes for each, but wouldn't it benefit if the user (perhaps wanting the best possible result) painted both areas completely? If so, maybe a Fill tool would be a useful addition to your plugin.
We are thinking about a variant of plugin with interface like Extract has (but with better quality ) - user loosely paints the boundary and fills the object, and we calculate the borders.

Yes, I am. I've seen their demos (Windows version is not yet available.)

Some demos make me think, that for certain instruments like used in http://www.vertustech.com/downloads/...s/hair_pop.htm they used technology very similar to ours...

I wonder whether they read our paper.

And what do you think about it?

well, i've only seen the demo too and we all know that demos put their best foot forward to show off their product at its best, but it does look impressive. seems pretty pricey for just a selection tool. however, i see a lot of folks struggling with selections and selection tools and i do also, so if it works as well as they say and show, then it might be worth it to a pro. but it's definitely outside the normal price range for hobbyists and amateurs. i'm definitely looking forward to trying a pc demo of it.

which reminds me, anything new on your product and getting it to work for us psp users?

Exclamation We've done it at last! :)

New version is ready, it includes a plugin for Paint Shop Pro also! I think I'll start another thread on this topic.
