ishani Posted April 26, 2019 Share Posted April 26, 2019 Hello all, [UPDATE 2019.05.18] Alpha 3 version of GenesisVFX PDN is ready to play with. You can download the package here : GenesisVFX.PDN.alpha3.7z (24,321,853 bytes, CRC64 F380A0C948806F39) Link broken, please see Zip at the bottom of this page @Pixey IMPORTANT Currently Genesis is a 64-bit only effect and has only been tested against Paint.NET 4.1.6. There are two different rendering back-ends to choose from, depending on how recent a CPU you have in your PC. The "AVX" option is for more modern CPUs (probably anything post-2012 is safe) and provides considerable performance improvements. The "Generic" option should run on anything. ALPHA INSTALLATION Unpack the 7z somewhere See above about which engine to use, AVX or Generic Copy the contents of \Install-<engine>\Effects into your PDN install Effects directory, eg. C:\Program Files\paint.net\Effects\ If this is the first time you've installed Genesis, please run the redistributable installer in \Install-<engine>\Redistributable\ Run Paint.NET, load an image and navigate to Effects -> Render -> GenesisVFX On the first run, you won't have any effect packs loaded. Click on the folder icon top-left to browse - go pick the \EffectLibrary directory in the place you unpacked the 7z. You can then click on thumbnails to load effects. Click on the preview windows to set effect centres. Try loading some masks (\Examples\Masks). Try hitting Randomize up top right. Good luck! NOTES I've been testing it a bunch but obviously it's got quite a few moving parts, so your mileage may vary! I am really keen to hear all constructive feedback. I need to write or video a few tutorials to get people up to speed... alpha3.zip 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
