  1. Yep, you're damn right. Cause Filter Forge works with raster images only.
  2. Can you please specify what filter exactly caused the AP freeze? We tried to reproduce the problem but everything worked. The problem could have originated from the fact that since AP 1.5 Filter Forge doesn't have a progress bar. So when it renders large bitmaps or complex filters or both it can be slow. Without a progress bar, the rendering process looks like AP froze. This case is even more mysterious. Because AP and FF should behave completely the opposite way. When you create a new document in AP there's completely nothing there (compare with PS, where a new document has a default background layer). So filters should be greyed out cause they have nothing to render yet. When you draw anything or paste an image the filters become active -- they have a raster image to deal with. Can you please describe what is going on more precisely?
  3. Hi Hamfast, Thanks for the detailed report. I'll pass your message to our tester and we'll try to find out what's wrong. I hope that it will be something where we can help, but there's a couple of known issues that we're fixing right now with Affinity developers. They say that the fixes will be released along with the official AP 1.8 release. Best regards, Jane
  4. Thanks to all of you, people! We're now able to work together again. Hope we'll make the official support happen
  5. Thanks, Mark! I appreciate this. Hope to hear from you soon
  6. Yes, I'm Jane from Filter Forge and I'm here to ask for help. We want to make Filter Forge work under all the versions of AP (both Windows and Mac) but we need help from the Serif developers. Unfortunately, the guy who helped us previously ceased to answer my messages and I think he doesn't work in Serif anymore. Hey, people, who want Filter Forge work correctly with the latest Affinity Photo, comment here and describe your problem. Hey, Serif guys, let us work together and make people happy. Thanks, call me Jane.
  7. Thanks, Angela, I'm here and reading. And unfortunately at this point we can do little about the issue.

    Hi, yes, Filter Forge works fine after you install it manually. Please, pay attention that the progress bar does not work in AP. Just wait for the result and it will appear. If you have any questions or need help, please write us here or (better and faster) via https://www.filterforge.com/contact/
  9. And here's how to install Filter Forge 7 or 8 on AP 1.7.1 on Windows. Note you can do it only manually now cause unfortunately we can't get the answer from the nicest guy Mark Ingram since the version 1.6 1. Open C:\Program Files\Filter Forge 8\Plugin\x64 . 2. Copy there both files: right-click and Copy (or Ctrl+C). 3. Open AP and go to Edit -> Preferences -> Photoshop Plugins. 4. Click on the "Open Default Folder in Explorer..." and paste there two files from the Clipboard using right-click and Paste (or Ctrl+P). 5. Then open "Filter Forge.config" file in NotePad and change the IndependentUI value="false"/> to IndependentUI value="true"/>. Save changes (Ctrl+S). 6. Tick the Allow Unknown Plugins. 5. Close Preferences and Restart Affinity Photo manually. 6. Now you can find Filter Forge 7 or 8 in the Filters -> Plugins -> Filter Forge and use it. NOTE! Progress bar is still not working, so if you render a large image or the filter has complex structure, please wait. Fitler Forge is not frozen, it works.
  10. Sooo, here's how to install Filter Forge 7 or 8 on AP 1.7.1 on Mac.

  11. We're trying to contact AP developers to fix the problem. Hopw they'll answer us soon and we'll be able to make Filter Forge work under AP again. Meanwhile we suggest to work with Filter Forge in a standalone mode and use copy and paste feature to drag images to and from AP.

    It is amazing to read such a feedback: Thank you. AND while our developers try to solve this official support problem with Serif, there's one nice and simple workaround: copy and paste to use FF and AP together.

    In AP version 1.6.5.123 selection doesn't work properly. It gives Filter Forge wrong info and we can't work with it. So you can use Filter Forge without selections right now, and we hope we'll be able to contact the AP developers to fix this issue.
