    But remember, since CC2021 is a major update it is a separate application to CC2020, so you must install the plugin in the CC 2021 folder. It will not automatically transfer from CC 2020.
    Pattern Suppression both the atn and the 8bf/plugin files should have been moved by installing Ps2021 if the user requested that at install time. But not the fftw file in the Photoshop folder.

    Most all plugins etc. will be housed and driven by the CC Desktop from now on. Photoshop won't be loading updates for the plugins, actions, scripts....

      Thank you Ron but that's exactly what I did I downloaded and extracted V2.6 from site. Then I copied the files in the plugin folder of Ps also in the actions folder. In that folder it worked normally as an action, but not anymore. Do I now have to work in a different way?
      I also see the files in the 'Filters' menu as Ron 2018.

      • Unfortunately I can't tell from your description exactly how you went about it. What files did you put where? Did you load the actions into your Actions panel?
        What is the problem? Is the actions not showing? Are filters not showing? Do you get an error message when trying to run it?

        How to install on Windows:
        1. Copy libfftwx64_3-3.dll to your Photoshop installation folder.
          By default this is C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop [version]\
        2. Copy the 8bf-files to the Photoshop Plug-ins-folder.
          By default this is C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop [version]\Plug-ins\
        3. Restart Photoshop if it was running.
        4. Double-click Pattern Suppressor v2.6.atn to install the actions.
          (You can also choose “Load Actions…” in your Actions Panel Menu).

        How to install on macOS:
        1. Copy the .plugin-files to the Photoshop Plug-ins-folder.
          By default this is /Applications/Adobe Photoshop [version]/Plug-Ins/
        2. Restart Photoshop if it was running.
        3. Double-click Pattern Suppressor v2.6.atn to install the actions.
          (You can also choose “Load Actions…” in your Actions Panel Menu).

        Common error messages

        Here are a few potential error messages, and their likely causes:

        The object “layer “XXX”” is not currently available

        https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/BB2fX_Li6yBxK-U59hkUbyM-cwLuCb8ZgvQSFNuBm_hu-v54P4Hb1O8ZhiBKOeTHvGjxlm7gE82lKQQ5r-esn-g4TTDOF-Sk8-8uOJg_kBw33VrGJyIM0f_Rdi1AVI2pBQrcbNod

        When running the actions, an error message like this will happen if the action is unable to find a layer it requires to function (The name “Preview” in the screenshot above will be replaced with whatever layer it is unable to find). This would typically occur if you have accidentally deleted/renamed one or more vital layers during processing, or if you are running the actions in the wrong order.

        Please see the tutorial for more information on how to use it correctly.


        The command “Filter” is not currently available

        https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/UfosxtF2jg35NjdZNh72T9Wv7sgoT9nm4HRwXlbrJu84HwAuvReJDj7Ru0jiuCfdKv50xLyduRHnAhUkAaFD1w_kizcV_OMmg_OegWknRZnzS8CIMgZ_SfZDXYASBLEEHBwAliRp

        When running any of the actions, this error message will occur if it cannot find one or more of the filters. This usually means you did not copy the filters to the correct folders, or you forgot to restart Photoshop after you did. Please verify that the plugins (filters) are in the correct folder for your version of Photoshop (and that you are using a 64-bit version of Photoshop that supports the filters).

        If the filters are installed correctly, they should show up under Filter > RONC 2018.


        Could not complete the *. command because of a disk error

        https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/dAIy0mXXbprWEjwgAuz0XVzvTuI0iD_tGZC1bVSrgJH8xXm7lnc0L5akHOHJ4Lnf-YRskKgJk4R-s57eQNLwupcEVU7KM-N6C3puQJbXNqUqAN-XKzhDMeZfnpGqjtHOTIb_I8Ho

        This misleading error message will show up on Windows if libfftwx64_3-3.dll is missing. This usually means you did not copy the file to the correct folder, or you forgot to restart Photoshop after you did. Note that “Ft2DS” in the above screenshot is the name of the filter it was trying to run at the time, and will be different depending on what action/filter you were running.

          The problem is solved. A message came up that the file could not be opened because Apple could not verify it.
          By opening system preference and allowing the loading of the blocked files during security, everything went well.
          Thanks for your help!

          • It is not often that I have to use Pattern Suppressor v2.7 (I installed the update today). The previous versions worked great, but now things went less well. I am using PS CC 2021 and the latest version OSX Big Sur.
            There was no difference between the original and after using the filter. Before the update, I first uninstalled the old versions and then installed the new ones in the correct manner with permission through security and privacy in the system preference. Here the example. Julie05org.jpg

            • I do not have a Mac to test on, but the mac version of the filters have not changed since the release. Minor change to the popup messages in the actions, some updates to the readme-file and the naming of the action set... Nothing that would affect the processing and end result.

              If it is not working, please provide the exact steps your perform from start to finish, preferably with screenshots. Just showing two identical before/after images without more information makes it hard to guess what you did and what went wrong.

              I also have no idea if it will function at all on the new M1 processor architecture...

              Comment


              • Plugins will not work with M1 in native mode. I have no way to update as I'm not able to program any more.

                I suspect that Big Sur doesn't handle actions the same as previous versions. Someone else needs to handle Mac related problems.

                • The problem is solved! It was my fault. In addition to the new one, the action also included the old version of Pathern Suppressor. So I used the old version. The 2.7 update works great. Sorry for the confusion.

                  • Hello,

                    I've downloaded the Windows x64 zip file. Running Win10, Photoshop CS5.1 x64. Having some issues, any tips?
                    • Not seeing the .atn or .8bf files in the extracted or unextracted zip file.
                    • Windows Explorer: View extensions is set to ON.
                    • I also tried the x32 zip file, same.
                    • I sent all the files to both Adobe and Plugin folders but Photoshop did not detect anything.
                    • I tried changing extensions of files but none were openable as Action files, no FFTW filters were found.
                    • The reason FFTW3.F, etc. show Notepad icons is because I opened them w/NP to look inside after above attempts.

                        You seem to have downloaded the wrong file. Not sure where you got it from? The github repo?

                        • I just downloaded V2.7 and have run it on my new MacBook Air in Photoshop 2021 under Rosetta. I also tried it on my 2017 iMac using Mojave. It runs fine, but I see no stars in the image mask. What I see is the cross with the ends of the lines growing fatter. Thoughts? Thanks!

                          • Everything looks correct. The reasons you're not seeing any clear "stars" is because there isn't a periodically repeating pattern in your image (at least not a clearly defined one).

                            There do appear to be a little bit going on along the horizontal and vertical line, but it's hard to make out. See if suppressing it helps/how it affects the final image. Remember you can go back and forth and try to suppress different regions to see what happens.

                            • Awesome! Thanks, Chain. Yes, the pattern is very faint. It is reflections from coated textured paper, which I may minimize by scanning twice in different directions and blending.

                                Hi:

                                I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right place, but since the previous "Virus" thread was posted here, I thought it was best not to change.

                                I've developed a series of actions that produce effects like some commercial plugins. Because the quality of output compares well (and in some ways surpasses what's already out there,) I think users would be willing to pay for the actions at a fraction of the cost of a plugin alternative.
