More Plugins for PD Particles

We have had a few free plugins released in the past, for PD Howler and PD Particles or PD Artist alike.

Here are a few from the past:

Flashback: The Halloween 2005 Spooky Clock #2, just in time for Halloween.
Watch out for the 13th hour!


That one was served as a zip download with several support files. We have the same here, a little easier to deploy, self-contained and use:

Size: 1.91 MB (exactly: 2,004,480 bytes)

Simply drop the .exe file into the installation folder of your Project Dogwaffle, hit 'k' for killer plugins, and find it in the Misc tab. You may already have the Clock2 plugin.

Now you also have the special edition for Halloween - boo!

You may also have seen these more recent filters:

The Worley Noise filter as a plugin


The Normal Map filter as a plugin

Now get these additional Filter plugins:

cellular_pf.exe - the Cellular filter

Checkerboard_pf.exe - the Checker Board filter

http://thebest3d.com/dogwaffle/newsletter/126-more-plugins-for-PD-Particles/Checkerboard_pf.exe -

Crystalize_pf.exe - you guessed it, it's the crystallize filter!

Simply download and save these files into the folder where you have Project Dogwaffle installed.
The location will vary by version and your installation.

For example, if it is for PD Particles 9 through Steam:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Particle9

Or if you have an older version of PD Artist without these filters yet:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Artist
C:\Program Files (x86)\PD Artist

Once you have placed the file(s) there, run the program, or if it was already running, re-open the plugins panel with the keyboard shortcut 'k' (for
'killer plugins' ). If the plugin panel is already open, you could also just use the Refresh option in the side Options menu of the plugins panel.

Then you just double-click to launch the desired new plugins.
