Hi,
then a list of filters is not enough. You will also need the filter categories at least. In this scenario, we need to change our SDK to run a filter based on information given by user. We will think about it, but in the meantime, you can use our filter selection.

Hi @Harshit
I do not see/find any attachment that you post it.
Is http://www.vertustech.com/fluidMask/free_trial.html the appropriate link ?

Hi.
I downloaded the setup file and indeed seems to be a problem with this plugin. I will start to look at the problem tomorrow onwards ( I'm very busy today :( )

Hi,
I also have one more query. I wanted to know, is there any way to access plugin filters from the installed paths on a machine, rather than coping the plugin in our application's "Photoshop" folder?

No, there are currently no such possibility.
I will add this requirement in the next release package (when I hope to be solved the problem with FluidMask plug-in)

@Harshit, until now I have no clue why it does not work. Maybe it requires some windows initialization, like common controls, ole, etc ... or maybe something else, but I still have not found the problem. I have not had much time because we were busy with other projects. I have written to their support@... with some days ago, but no response from them.

@errolw, I just want to show you a website with our Photoshop host SDK in back-end: http://pixido.com/web/

hi Harshit.
Unfortunately I have not received any response from http://www.vertustech.com/ support. Also I try FluidMask on other host (IrfanView, Paint.NET, GIMP, SigmaPi NiGulp), but none of them worked. The only host in that work was, of course was ... Adobe Photoshop.
Maybe I'll try to contact "vertus" support again.
About the two questions of yours (that I have not forgotten), I was (and I am currently still) very, very busy with other project.
Some good news :-) ... in near future (one month or so) we'll have a MAC photoshop host sdk
btw ... you tried to integrate our host sdk in an application of yours ?

I tested that filter a while back and it ran perfectly under Paint.NET.
Unfortunately the demo has expired so I am unable to test it anymore. :(

You are right. With latest version of Paint.NET that filter runs ok sometime, and sometimes crash at startup (tested on Win7 64 bits). Anyway I'll investigate this problem in our host sdk.

Hi all.
Based on @Harshit request, we have changed our host sdk. It has support for returning the list of available filters. Now you can implement your desired filter selection (i.e. menus, tree-controls, whatever you want).

So, if you download latest version (1.0.11530) you'll find the following added functions:
vsrPpStringList availablePlugins(const char* category)
void freeStringList(vsrPpStringList stringList)

If you pass NULL in availablePlugins function, sdk will return all filter categories, otherwise will return all filters from that category.
You'll need to free returned string list with freeStringList

Also we changed the apply filter function API as:
vsrPpBoolean applyPhotoshopPlugin(const char* category, const char* filterName)

As before a complete example code is included in package.

We are working for a Mac version (32 & 64 bits) of our host sdk. Things are going slowly because we are working on paid projects, but soon will be available a Mac version.

All the best.

Hi Harshit,

It is difficult to find where the error comes from information provided.
So, you apply the same filter several times, one after another ?
You have this problem and for other filters ? ( or just for this one ? )
If only for this one, maybe if you can post some filter "demo/trial/..." mode, would be useful.
If not, maybe we have some bug if different filters are applied several times one after another.

Thank you.

Hi,
I did not see any 8bf attach, but I have found sites with filters written by you. I will download some of these, I will test them, and I will let you know what can be the problem.

Thank you.
