Filter Forge Professional on DAZ Store?

Geminii23Geminii23 Posts: 1,216

Has anyone purchased this from DAZ store?  I know a lot of content creators seem to use Filter Forge for a variety of projects, but I am confused by what version of the appliation this actually is being sold here on DAZ.

All the different version I see on Filter Forge actual website are pretty pricey, so if this is the full Professional Version that integrates with Photoshop?  If so this is going to be instant purchase for me today just for the cost savings alone.

Thanks!

    Yes, it's the pro version (it goes on sale on the website pretty often too so the price is comparible)

    Assuming you mean this:

    https://www.daz3d.com/filter-forge-7-0-professional-win (or the Mac version)

    Yes.  So it is full Pro version then?  Compatible with Photoshop?

    Yes. It is the full Pro version and yes it is compatible with 64 bit Photoshop. I believe support for 32 bit Photoshop was dropped with version 7 of Filter Forge.

    I bought filter forge 7 today (great price with my loyalty discount and today's sale)... however I have Photoshop CS4 64  byte and could not get the plugin to install (the stand alone filter forge does install) after looking around at the filter forge forums it seems filter forge 7 and above only support Photoshop CC as a plugin. So for CS4 I will have to copy and paste between the stand alone ff and photoshop Cs4. Has anyone gotten this to install and show up on the plugin filters for CS4?? Fortuneatly I kept ff6 installed. Guess I will keep ff7 and just use standalone.

    It's version 7, the current version is 8.

  • I believe you might qualify for the ff8 upgrade as it just came out a couple of weeks ago on their website.

    Maybe someone here who have purchased it here at DAZ could give it a try? Just need to enter your license data here:

    If you bought FF7 here, you can get FF8 for an additional $65 per the upgrade.

    I just bought FF8 for $99 and let it be.  With tax, it was $105.  So I'm thinking even with FF7 being $41 and the tax on the upgrade being 6.25% (at least here in Illinois), I ended up saving a whole $5!!!

    I don't know what I'm going to do with myself now...lol.

    Sometimes you get it for free though if you have purchased the previous version shortly before the new one is released, and checking your serial number on that page might tell you if you're qualified. But such offers usually end as soon as the new version is out, so I doubt it in this case.

    That is true for the regular upgrade. However, if you just purchased Filter Forge 7 Pro within the last month it is possible that they will upgrade you to version 8 for free. To request that instead of filling out the form you would have to email them and demonstrate when (and where) you purchased Filter Forge 7 Pro. No guaratees on that but I know that when I had purchased version 6 at DAZ shortly before version 7 was released I was able to upgrade for free. See this post:

    According to this page - https://www.filterforge.com/buy/ - you can just upgrade to version 8.  See the upgrade option part way down.

    I sent a request to Filter Forge inquiring about a free upgrade to Filter Forge 8 Pro if you have bought Filter Forge 7 Pro recently here at DAZ(for me yesterday). Otherwise I think you get 75% off an upgrade to Filter Forge 8 Pro. I will let folks know what they say.

  • mrposermrposer Posts: 1,021

    They gave me a free upgrade to Filter Forge 8 Pro.... not sure how they will respond if they get alot of requests for DAZ customers but you can try. It would be nice if they coordinated with DAZ quicker about new versions being sold.

    Yes, but that way costs money and doesn't get you a free upgrade for a very recent purchase. You have to email Filer Forge seperately to inquire about that.

    I gave it a try, and here's what they said:

    "What is your purchase date?
    You are eligible for a free upgrade if you bought Filter Forge 7 after Filter Forge 8 had been released."

    So no problem, it seems.

     

     

  • i also gave it a try and got the free upgrade

    Thank you for this topic!  Filter Forge has been on my wishlist for a while, and this thread alerted me to the new version as well as the sale pricing.
