Same address as the older:

@William
Try downloading and installing it again. I've changed its "group-uuid", which is responsible for identifying the different plugin-categories. The last version had a default one, which perhaps conflicted with another plugin you have installed.

FCP 7 on a MacPro. However, I just downloaded the new installer on my laptop and your plug-in loaded like a charm. Works great. I'll try to reinstall it on the MacPro later. That's the machine I'll use it on.

Thank you for the hard work that went into it.

Thanks Dominik,

The plugin works great. I have been looking for a plugin like this for a long time. Thanks for the research and development on this and keep up the good work.

Cheers

Hi Dominik, I'm on a MacPro as well, everything seemed to install OK but the plug-in doesn't appear in my effects palette. There is a folder installed at /Library/Plug-Ins/FxPlug/RGBCurves.fxplug.

Regarding the Hi-Pass filter, I guess I use it more like an unsharp mask, I duplicate the layer, set the Hi-Pass filter and then change the transfer mode, that way I can dial in the sharpening. That way you can get some subtle edge sharpening without adding a lot of noise. I shoot mostly with the 7D and with the still this method of sharpening works really well, I'm guessing that the video from this camera would benefit from this too.

Now I'm using the sharpening in Color which is OK, but it doesn't really compare to what I can do to a still in Photoshop using the Hi-Pass filter.

Please download and try it again. I've now disabled the localization-option. I don't know if that helps, but let's do trial and error. ;) Btw. which version of Final Cut do you have?

But Final Cut has an unsharp mask filter. So you need a high-pass filter?

Re: Photoshop curves for Final Cut

I know this is somewhat old news, but I'd like to play with it and can't get FCP to recognize it? I"m on FCP 6, by the way.

There is indeed a library/plugins/fxplug/rgbcurves.fxplug folder, but don't see it in FCP.

Re: Photoshop curves for Final Cut

This is a great thing to have... I usually use just the level corrections in photoshop (and after effects) so that would be really awesome to have. But having curves in FCP is great too, thanks.

Re: Photoshop curves for Final Cut

I got it to work........I had to change the sharing and permissions in the "Get Info" box to read and write for me. Otherwise, the folder was locked.

Re: Photoshop curves for Final Cut

I think I did what you said. . .(me) and "staff" have read & write permissions ("everyone only lets you select "read only" or "write only") on the RGBCurves.fxplug, plug ins, and fx plug folders. I'm still not seeing anything in FCP.

This should show up in the effects tab under video filters/neat video, right?

Re: Photoshop curves for Final Cut

Can't make it work. Now if I install it doesn't create a folder anymore. Just a plugin file in the fxplug folder with the name RGBCurves.fxplug. But it doesn't show up in FCP, even if I change the sharing and permissions settings.
