filter factory

I am having an awful time trying to get the desired version of a particular effect to transfer accurately to the image. Whether I use the Plug in commander, or a basic 8bf viewer, like photoshop, xnview, or irfanview, etc., the particular effect appearance I want is never transferred properly. The result is shifted to another version. On occasion, the effect may actually be maintained, but this is rare. Is there a basic programming flaw, or something? I need some advice. Thanks David

You are right. Some FilterFactory plugins produce a different effect than what is shown in the preview. The problem is that the effect is not scaled to the image dimensions. This is partially a neglectance of the FilterFactory developer as well as the author of the individual filter.

You could load the FilterFactory plugin into the FilterMeister plugin or Plugin Commander and change the code there. Often it is only necessary to replace every x with x*255/X and every y with y*255/Y.

Our own Harrys Filters and Plugin Galaxy plugins are based on FilterFactory codes, but we avoided the mentioned problem, so that the preview correctly shows what you get afterwards.
