smile:cry: AHHHHH!!!! It never fails, I must have the worst timing of anyone.

I just (2 months ago) purchased version 2 for $100. Now version 3 is out. Even with the upgrade discount I pay another $70. That's a total of $170 while people paying full price only pay $150. I freakin' hate buying software!!! Ugh! smile:evil:

So now I have to decide if double-spending is worth it. Is there enough in version 3.0 to crack open my (recently taped) piggy bank again??? smile:?:

Did anyone hear when the Filter Forge 3.0 serial numbers get sent out for the ones that bought the Pre-Order?

Just looking for a time frame to check the email and make sure it stays out of the spam bin.

Thanks

Yup , I saw it smile:) Didn't see anyone from the company reply yet, so another "bump" won't hurt. I was hoping they had answered your question when first reading the thread. I guess we have 30 days to use the "demo" but it is more fun to have your official keys installed.

Thanks

Hello,

I just received my serials but there is a problem all works but it's not my name.

Instead of my full name like in v2, i have just as name : Monsieur ( = sir, Mister ).

Just that, i need to have my real names with my serials, it is possible you fix that and send me new modified serials please ?

I post here in the case that helps others people with the same problem.

Maybe a bug in the serials registration or generation.


Thanks a lot !!

Best Regards from France smile;) smile;) smile;) smile;) smile;) smile;)

I got my new license key today but when I try to enter it I get an "Invalid License name or key" error. It will allow me to use it as a 30 day trial but that's not what I paid for. I hope this is just a "glitch". I have contacted FF and am sure they will have an answer for me soon. They usually do!

WOW!! Congratulations to the FF 3.0 team for all the work they have done to reach this point.

I wish the best for the new version 3.0 and want to see it grow and become even more popular and famous than FF 2.0 and with lots of new fantastic, awesome and amazing filters created by all the experts that all of you.

I love FF Inc. and ALSO love you all that make so much lovely filters and support and give the fuel to power Filter Forge.

I am very sorry that I can´t buy the upgrade yet because I do not have enough money, but I will surely upgrade to 3.0 as soon as I can.

Is anyone else having a problem installing and getting it to work? I'm on Win7 64 and have tried to install and run it 3 times now.. Each time it pauses a second but FF never comes up. It locks up my photoshop.

Suggestions ideas?

Besides having problems getting the order form for upgrades to work, sounds like it might be good to wait a day or two to let the FF3 team work out the glitches with the license key issues.

Have been looking forward to this day for some time! Very Happy to know it's officially released.

didnt get my serial number. had to use the 30 day trial. all other keys i have for FF didnt work, so i'm assuming final 3 requires a new one regardless of lifetime free updates. maybe tomorrow? i hope we get them before the weekend.

for those that got their keys but havent managed to have it take yet, you MUST use the user name you registered with plus the key.

Hey everyone,

We apologize for sending keys with license names like Sir, Mr. or Frau. We'll resend proper keys for the Windows platform today.

Keys for the Mac version will be sent out within a few days.

Please note that everyone has a fresh 30-day trial regardless of any previous Ff versions or betas installed. If you don't get a key today please use the fully-functional trial for a few days before complaining to the support.

And yes, FF 3.0 requires a new key -- no key from any other version, including 3.0beta, will work with the commercial version.

Some tiny help file nitpicks:

The 'Depth Map' option and the 'Works when conntected' map input are not explained in the 'Bomber' section.

The 'Miscellaneous' and 'Support' sections are grouped under 'Scripting', which appears to be somewhat odd.

any idea on why it won't work after reinstalling several times? Just stops after I click it. Is there something wrong with the installer for Windows7 users?

The same here in Win7(64). FF3 seems to run in background, because it's listed in the "Progresses", but no UI comes up.

Please help !!

I think i got it.

I guess it's the storing of all the filters locally. The first run needs ages to read in all the stuff......

Hope that helps.

The results haven't been posted yet, AFAIK. I'm guessing the FF Team is on a well deserved vacation. smile:)

James, I'm sorry for not keeping the promise of announcing the winners of the beta test: we are overwhelmed with 3.0 key requests and our automatic key distribution has failed. I will turn my attention to the beta winners once we settle the hassle with keys.

I want to let know that I have downloaded the FF 3.0 final version and I have installed it OVER THE OLD BETA VERSION and so everything has kept the same and it works flawlessly and perfect from the first moment, and have kept all the filters and configuration doing it this way.

And to solve the problem with the activation keys, I am using the trial version of 3.0 instead of the full version.

I have WIndows 7 64 bit

Hi GMM, on November, 11 you wrote that quoted text, and I'd like to inform that I didn't get such e-mail until today, November, 15th. I've checked my spam box and it isn't there too. I've sen't couple e-mails to the support, but I'm not sure they're reaching you guys once I didn't get any feedback from you yet, and no response from FF team isn't usual at all. How you guys had that server update, I wonder if has some delay delivering the keys or something else that I need to wait or I need to send an e-mail to some e-mail address.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day.

Hi Luis,
I guess you've got a lifetime upgrade? Unfortunately our automatic key distribution failed, we're sending out keys manually and probably haven't sent yours yet. Please use the trial version for a couple more days until we either fix the key distribution or send out all keys smile:(

Ok thanks for the info GMM, I was guessing that it was due to things being a bit busy at the moment with the V3 release.

Hi GMM, yes, you're right, I got lifetime upgrade. I'm sorry you guys got this issue. I'll keep using the trial than I have more some days to use. :0) Good luck to you all fixing the distribution system or by sending them manually. I'll keep waiting. If the trial expires and I don't get the key I'll contact you again. ;0)
Have a nice week.

I notice that several downloaded filters (fr om the online library) are still lurking around in "my filters". That's because I probably downloaded them while using the FF3 Beta. But now that Beta testing is over, it would be convenient for these filters to be put back wh ere they belong. Is there a way, other than manually, that this could be fixed? smile:?:

Indigo Ray, I'd recommend you delete these filters and redownload them from the library.

Very excited!! Will be waiting. I've been playing with FilterForge 3 for a while. Amazing. I'm using it all over my film and the results are (as usual) stunning. Adaptive preview = best thing ever. Thanks FilterForge. Woo

Craig, our DBA who is in charge of maintaining the database of 3.0 users has fell sick smile:(
If we don't fix the automated key distribution soon we'll have to send the keys manually – and emailing out several thousand keys one by one is the thing we'd like to avoid.
We are very sorry for this inconvenience. Please allow several working days to fix this.
