If you have any questions on Plugin Filters please post them in the Graphic Programs & Tech Support Forum


How To Use Plugin Commander

To be able to convert you only need to download the free version.........ffl file
filters have to be converted before you can use them. If you have Filters Unlimited  II
full commercial version the conversion is not necessary just load the ffl file through
Filters Unlimited and it will convert them for you.

Once you have installed Plugin Commander open it up and you will be presented with the below screen......make sure the drive is specified in the drop down menus both on the lefthand & righthand side.  Click on the icon I have outlined in red and browse to the
folder where you saved  an unzipped the ffl file to, in this case I am demonstrating a
set of Andrews Filters. Highlight the folder........

Now in the lefthand pane you will see what is contained in that folder so now you have to highlight the ffl file. After you have done that go to the bottom of the program box. I have outlined 2 here the one on the lefthand side must display the menu that contains the ffl file as this is what we are converting, the righthand side is what we are going to
convert the file to and that is an 8bf file so make sure you have the 8bf file displayed
in this menu.

Click "Convert"

You will be presented with a smaller box set as I have shown in the screenshot below. And, once more click convert.........A further pop up box will ask what folder you want to save them in so browse and save to the same folder as the ffl original file is in.

Now you can see in the far right panel all the filters the ffl file contained converted
into 8bf files. Close Plugin Commander now as you have finished.
