View Full Version : 9.5 / FiberFX User Manuals Now Online

It seems the FiberFX manuals are now online at http://register.newtek.com/ (under 'My Downloads', scroll down to 'Documentation')

Although, the 'Screen' resolution manual appears to actually be the 'Print' resolution manual, and the 'Print' resolution link doesn't seem to work for me.

Go and download now!

Hmmm, Print resolution 25MB don't work for me either :(.

NT plese fix that link ASAP, screen resolution is low resolution :D :D.

Sweet, thanks for the post.

I wonder how much it will be to upgrade my printed 9.0 manuals... :confused:

Looks very impressive... some great looking examples in the docs. Looking forward to giving this a go.

Thanks and congrats on the documentation, Matt - Really clean design and page setup, as always :thumbsup: Now I'm gonna give FiberFX a try ! (believe or not, I still haven't played with it :rolleyes: )

Best Regards

PS: Matt, is there any place besides NT forum where all the stuff you made is gathered ? I mean you've made some really great plugins and when I installed 9.5 'final' release, I realized I missed your 'Set Scale' script and I had to download it at Exception's website - I kinda expected to find your scripts on your website - alas it seems you doesn't have a 'download' section :question:

Great manual Matt!! The pros and cons and limitations of each method was terrific. Well written and not just "this button does this" and "that button does that". Very nice! Now run off and do a rigging or IK Booster manual!!:D

Dang! Just spotted a 'See Page XX' which I forgot to update after the whole thing was finished! Grrrrrr!

Amazing job on that manual, Matt! Looks really slick!

(yeah, print version is still not downloading for me, but the screen version did download a 4.1mb one)

Great! This is how a software manual should look like.

08-22-2008, 01:30 PM
Nice, great work.

what can i say... very professional
now i would like to see community do some nice renders to put it together at the end of this manuals

I agree, great stuff. Now if we could just gather together some useful shareable presets and example scenes.

And while we're on the subject of wishlists...

I'd really like to see some "favorite lights" lists, possibly with example scenes, using some of those zillions of IES lights out there.

Thanks for letting me know Matt. There are several features I need to read up on.

Great! This is how a software manual should look like.

quoting for agreement. thx a ton matt :thumbsup:

I read elsewhere that you wrote the manual. Is this true? If so, then I really need to thank you. That manual has really helped learning the ins and outs of the plug in.

Yes, I took Marvin's work and expanded on it, there are still some areas that needed more explanation and examples, but I ran out of time before SIGGRAPH. Also, there was going to be a tutorials section, but again time got the better of me, will have to address that.

Thanks for the comments though everyone!

I'm really looking forward to trying this out now.
