All, Through trial and error, I got the MAC version of Affinity Photo (1.5.2) to work with the Filter Forge (6.009 and trial version 7.0). I have tested both FF versions on 8 bit color photos, and each one performs as expected. The problem was aliasing the universal plug-in and placing it in the default AP folder. This will not work. Once I created the path to the applications/Filter Forge 6.0 directory in the preferences of AP, then all works fine. I wish someone would have explained to me the exact procedures.
Will someone please tell me how to get Filter Forge plug-ins to work in the MAC version of Affinity Photo. I have AP version 1.5.2 and FF version 6.009 Profesional version. I have manually created an alias for the FF universal plugin and placed it in the AP folder. I also created an alias for Nik Collection in the same AP plug-in folder. Nik Collection works fine, but Filter Forge is not recognized as a plug-in. I have read all the posts and tried multiple things. I understand this works on the Windows version of AP, but I want an answer for the MAC version from the developers at Affinity. Just tell me it is coming in the next version, or how to install a work around in this version. It is quite annoying to have to read all the post on AP and FF in order to understand that this issue is receiving the official finger pointing from both development teams. Michael
