• rather good, but unfortunate all masks are juste matte and not real maps, like for blur. So you don't have a nice smooth between not blured and blured, but juste like an masked effect. Tell me if i'm wrong.
  • Hi Remi - love what this is supposed to do, but UI is wonky in AE CS5 - parts of the interface disappear frequently. Presets not working in CS 5. No explanation of what to do with Diopter Footage provided. Should the effect be applied to an adjustment layer, or directly on footage?

  • My bad, for real blur, we have to check use lens as blur map. But for optical distortion/trail.directional blur/chrom aberrations, it doesn't work with adjustement layers. (i open a ticket for that)

    footages have to be use as custom map, but it's very sensible to white and whit, maybe you should constrast them a little.
  • @""BS_L Lau" Thanks again for your great review! You're right, Intensity map (like Blurmap) are only possible with Blurring effects (Fast and Realistic Blur) currently. But in a next version of Diopter this is one of the many I'd like to add!
  • @Scott Thank you for your ticket, unfortunately Diopter is not compatible with CS5 or CS5.5. About the footage items, there are only matte layers. You can use them as described in the User Guide : - Place a footage in the timeline of AE - Place Diopter on the layer you want to apply the filter - In Diopter, set the Lens Type to 'Custom' and choose in the dropdown menu the footage layer. About the use of Diopter, it works on footage and adjustment layer! This is also explained in the User Guide.
  • Hi Remi!
    I used the aescript installer, with no other plugins installed, and diopter crashes when loading. Any ideas? 

    What kind of info do you want/need?

    Diopter is a plugin not a script, you will find it under the Effects menu. If you require help or are experiencing issues please open a support ticket and include screenshots so we are able to help you further.
  • Hi - I'm getting an ugly green dither-style pattern when using Diopter on 16- and 32-bit projects. Is this a bug/limitation? It disappears when I switch to 8-bit... but then everything else looks grim instead ;-)

    I´ve got the same issue. This must be a bug.

    I´ve got the same issue. This must be a bug.
    I'm also unable to use this plugin in anything other than 8-bit. Is this not 16/32 compatible? If so, could you please mention it on the compatibility tab? And perhaps discount or refund me? I need this to be 16-bit.
  • I just purchased the plug in and am creating some pretty cool effects.  But, what is the footage used for, and how do i use it?
  • Footage (video or picture) can be used as Lens (Lens map to be precise). You add it into your comp with a layer with Diopter. Then choose 'Custom map' as Lens Type. And choose your footage layer! Thats it!
  • Hello,
    Do you plan to do this for FCPX ?! I know a lot of people ready to buy it...
  • Hi Sandro,
    Well I'd like to but for now this is not planned. If you know a good developer let me know :)

    Regards,

    Rémi MONEDI

    Hi Brian,
    Diopter is compatible with AE CC2020. If you're having any issue with it, please open a support ticket.
  • This would be more useful to me as a Premiere plug-in.  Is that compatibility planned?

    Hi James, yes I know! As soon as I created Diopter I wanted to make it compatible with editing softwares (PP, FCP, Resolve) but adapting AE plugin to these softwares is not an easy task. So I'm taking my time on this one with other new features for the next version of Diopter!

    Have a great day
