I'd love to see some more complete docs for Plugger than the couple tutorials and help that I've been able to find so far. More advanced explanation of fields and suchlike. Anything like that exist?

As I'm getting into more and more advanced stuff each time, I'd like to not stumble around quite as blindly. My copy of Alam is full of c**p plugins now as I render two or three frames and load 'em as a plugin to try to blindly explore the options... Very time consuming.

Any help?

THANKS!!!

I think I must have skipped that when I read the manual. Do we get "the to be continued" soon? wink

Seriously though - I was poking around in the developer section, not the user manual. Go Figger.

Thanks!!!

There are a few tiny bits in Plugger that aren't covered in the manual, (some of the Ink modes, I think, aren't mentioned), because I have never had opportunity to use them and really examine what they do, but nearly everything is covered there. I haven't been building as many plug-ins recently as I was when I wrote that, but if you have any questions that the manual doesn't seem to cover, let me know, and I can probasbly help you out. I think I remember it all.

To save my life, I cannot find any documentation other than the video tutorials. In the ALAMDV2 program when I click quickstart tutorial, I get a blank screen.

Could anyone please point me to any documentation in using ALAMDV2 (Although I think I have it figured out now) and I really would like some documentation for creating plugins. I tried creating a plugin last night over a very large file (300+ mb of uncompressed video) but was unsuccessful so hopefully some documentation will help.

Thanks

You can load the manual and/or quickstart from the Start menu (if you're running Windows of course). The files themselves can be found in the 'Documentation' folder inside the AlamDV2 folder, wherever you chose to install it.
