    download link for V8.5

    Hi I have downloaded the trial version (8.5) but when I try to register it says invalid code. The only installation code I have is for v8 - I imagine 8.5 would have been updated through 'software update' which I cannot do because I am using Sierra Support - please could you advise as I need to get this running asap many thanks steve

    download link for V8.5

    Hi apologies if this is in the wrong place... I upgraded from v6 - v8 a while ago and then 8.5. I can find a link to download v8 but this will not open (I'm using OS Sierra) is there a link to v8.5 or do I need to download the trial version and then update with my code? I was still using v6 but have to change due to updated hardware thanks in advance steve

    FormZ 8.02 Imager

    fair enough and I totally agree Dennis I have been using FZ since the mid/late '90s - the level of support is unparalleled and quite unique in my experience steve

    FormZ 8.02 Imager

    yep, me too - progress bar/info is a must the imager was absolutely fine in V6 - why did it have to change?

    Image strength on coloured glass

    cool for a glass surface style you only need to specify 'glass' in reflection and leave transparency to none - you could check your decal on another opaque coloured surface to see if it's working properly

    Image strength on coloured glass

    hey Sammi you can uncheck 'make black areas transparent' have you applied a transparency to your perspex texture map? for perspex/glass only use 'glass' (reflection) and set transparency to none - otherwise you end up with a 'double' transparency which might be causing the problem

    Image strength on coloured glass

    Hi Sammi psd or tiff will be fine see files below - thats how the alpha channel should look (opaque objects in white) add the alpha channel to the decal and make sure 'use alpha channel' is selected (under Transparency > Transparency Map) add the decal to your glass and hey presto if you are applying to a material with a transparency applied (say simulating a voile) you need to check the opacity box to make it appear solid this may look slightly different in version 8 (this is 6.7) steve

    Image strength on coloured glass

    Hi Sammi are you trying to create the effect of a screen printed panel (or vinyls) so the images and text are opaque only? (and you see through in between) you need to create an alpha channel in photoshop of all the solid areas then add it to your decal - go Transparency > Transparency Map (check Alpha channel) you can then add the decal to any material I do it all the time and it's easy =) steve

    desperate plea - FZ 6.7

    Hi Tech will do - I am managing ok at the moment - the crashes happen frequently but I have not had one today everything I have been working on so far was created in 6.6 so I'm not sure if that would have anything to do with it. I recently upgraded to v.8 but haven't had a moment to get up to speed so I am using 6.7 for now (because I had to upgrade os x) I will send you a file asap thanks as always steve

    desperate plea - FZ 6.7

    thanks Rich, it does seem that it's os x that is opening previous files not FZ. It seems a totally stupid feature with no single clear fix. "Close windows when quitting" selected is ok so long as the program doesn't crash - I'll try out some of the other methods any one else have this problem in os x 10.8 onwards? cheers steve

    desperate plea - FZ 6.7

    cheers guys I have managed to sort for now by ditching the old preference file and creating a new one I will look into it further when I have more time (that set image size bug is a pain though) thanks
  13. Hi I have a big problem and a tight deadline - I am using FZRZ 6.7 on os x 10.8.5 I have been getting repeated crashes using "set image size" - I think this has been an issue for a long time hence the reason it was changed in later versions. However, the major problem I have now is that when I restart FZ after a crash it automatically tries to open the previous files I was working on. One of the files has become corrupted so each time I launch it just hangs trying to open the corrupt file. Why is it trying to open it automatically? it's so infuriating. I don't know if there is a pref file I could delete or whether I need to reinstall again I'm on a real tight deadline and could really do with some help thanks in advance steve

    slower renders in v8 compared to v6.7

    thanks Tech I will give this a try and let you know

    set image size

    thanks Tech I'm sure I'll discover the wealth of other features will more than make up for it but if you do ever get chance in the future.....
