Hi Rô.

Invert the Original
Of Course, Why didn’t I think of that?

I was thinking the wrong way with this; I was hoping to build a 5x5 filter that I could re-use. But it seems that this will need re-working for each kernel. I will stay with 3 x 3 in future.
Offset Percentage. I understand that now (I think).
Linear Light is on Vladimir’s too do list

Thank you for the example. That makes everything a lot clearer.

I have managed to make a rectangular frame but it’s a bit messy I guess we would be better waiting for ‘bombers’


Ken.

I think I found a bug. But it could be a feature.
Levels won't invert if I swap the Black Point and White Point sliders.
Annoying, but survivable.

Ken, nice to see you got some filters admitted.
Passing on some advice from Vladimir, you could make your presets a little more interesting. For example the basic Tri-tone filter works fine and well-behaved, now just add in some extreme stuff in the presets to "sell" it. Maybe three different colours.

Did you try any alternative to the three impulse curves?
These make step changes between each colour. I would have expected some sort of fading.

Hi, Stroker. I'm pretty sure that it's feature, there are some other components that do that too.
Seems that it is FF policy to (over)protect us from doing something "wrong".
Agreed that it rules out some fun stuff. We'll just have to be more inventive.

Ok, Ro...I'm giving it a shot. And I appreciate the feedback.

Now you're really gonna see some bad filters.

Doesn't worry me too much though.
Vladimir and the guys are serious folk and they are only interested in feedback about their filter.
(or they fooled me real good!)

That sets me straight. Glad you posted this, I appreciate it. Sometimes you get paranoid regarding software downloads that are free.

Plan to load it shortly and probably make some filters so bad they wouldn't want to know anyway. 8-)

Side note: if anyone comes up with any painterly-type filters either by accident or on purpose, I would appreciate some pointers on these.

Again thanks.

Steve

However it can be switched off in the preferences if you wish. There is also a message which asks if it’s OK to send the info before it is sent.

FF is worth trying. Some wonderful effects can be achieved. Just look what Vladimir had to say about Byro’s filter.

It's a fun beast to play with. Just know that my main interest is in finding bugs. But if something does tweak my noodle, I'll speak up.

For example, you can use Offset to do what Displace does.

Thanks for the offer of help guys.

Just a thought, after playing with it for a few hours. One of you beta testers need to tell them that as in so many image manip programs the work windows are too small. In this case too many and too small. And no way to see your work on the original until you apply it.

If you have Gertrudis. This is the kind of work space these programs need.

Not too enthused at the moment, but may take another look as time permits.

Steve

Steve, there is an active forum at their site.
There many people, as you, have criticised the usage of the window's "real estate".
The next version should be a little better.
