DXO Film Pack 3.2 and Lightroom 4
« on: March 08, 2012, 08:10:13 pm »
Hi,

I can\'t get the filmpack work as a plugin for Lightroom 4. I can\'t find the plugin file when using the Plugin manager to add the Film Pack Plugin.

Can somebody help me with that?

Hello,

DxO will add the LR4 plug-in installation in FilmPack next week.

At the present time, as LR3 and LR4 are sharing files together, if you install FP 3.2 with both LR3 and LR4 already installed, you will have the FP plug-in available in your LR4.

Olivier.

Just to let you know LR4 has a problem with any external editor.
When neither Photoshop or Elements exist on the pc, no external editor works.
This goes for the new version of FilmPack as well. Naturally, since it\'s a LR4 bug.

BTW. This bug was not present in the LR4 Beta.

So, installing a test version of Photoshop or Elements seems to solve the problem.
I haven\'t because I\'m a bit worried what would happen after the trail expires.
On the other hand, probably nothing since the mere presence of either of these seems to remedy the LR4 bug.
It seems that the proper registry entry even suffices. For those that feel daring - or know what they are doing.

Still need a bit more clues

I\'m a total newbie to LR and also can\'t get the FilmPack to be recognized by LR4. I am running FilmPack 3.2.1 and have CS4 installed on the system. Any clues would be appreciated.

Normally, you should be able to add this via
Edit/Preferences/External Editing.
There under \'Additional External Editor\' you can "choose" the program, set the parameters and save the preset under an appropriate name.
Then, on the photos you can choose \'Edit in\'.

Only one external editor in LR4?
« Reply #5 on: March 19, 2012, 07:28:31 am »
Thanks for that guidance. I already use that setting however for a Nik sharpening plug-in. Does LR4 only allow setting up one external editor? It looks that way.

Although it does look that way, there is no limit.
You just fill out the settings and then you click the \'Preset\' open and you use the option \'Save Current Settings as New Preset\' and you name it.
So, your external editors are saved as Presets.

Workaround for Edit-in bug in Lightroom 4 (Adobe\'s bug) seems to be installing Photoshop CS5 Trial.
 
This fixes abilty to use all external editors with Lightroom 4.  Not just DxO FilmPack 3.2.1 (latest release) which directly supports Lightroom 4 in 64-bits (as well as 32-bits).
 
Surely Adobe will fix this in 30-days.  If not, then uninstall CS5 Trial just before it expires.
Should be no risk in doing this (you owe Adobe nothing).
 
Use Revo Uninstaller Pro:
http://www.revouninstallerpro.com/revo_uninstaller_downloads.html  in advanced mode (also a 30-day free trial) to cleanly uninstall CS5 Trial.  Be sure to use [FONT=Verdana","sans-serif]the Advanced Option which requires two scans following the more normal uninstallwith Revo Uninstaller Pro.  First youwill get a list of Registry entries (select and delete them all) and then alist of files (select and delete them all).  Very clean Uninstall.[/FONT]

This can also be fixed with the next solution:

Or wait for the update to Lr 4.1
