For those PL users, like me, who have FilmPack & ViewPoint fully integrated into PL - and do NOT use FP & VP in their stand-alone state; you may not be aware (as I was not) that new versions of both these products are now available.
In an earlier discussion about plug-in updates in PhotoLab, Pascal (@Pieloe) assures us that PhotoLab is always updated with the latest versions of FilmPack and ViewPoint before the new standalone versions of FP and VP are released.
There appears to be no documentation about this from DxO. Svetlana, @sgospodarenko, could you help us with this? Thanks.
Ah - OK. I was under the impression that PL utilised functionality from VP & FP - - but, you seem(?) to be saying that VP/FP palette functionality is actually built-in to PL - which is why it’s unnecessary to keep VP & FP updated if they’re not being used in their standalone modes … Is that correct ?
I am a little confused here. New user of PL3 and been using FP5 standalone for a while now. From what I can find, it appears you can use the FilmPak as a plug in but I haven’t been able to figure it out. Support says FP5 is a plugin to PL3.
In PL3, there is a button on the bottom to invoke Nik Collection but I cannot find a similar button for FP5. All I seem to be able to do is export to FP5.
Any suggestions appreciated because i use the FP black and white styles alot.
