Plugin Documentation - Where to find?

Postby Qbertino » Wed Jul 23, 2003 9:40 pm

Hi.
I've just gotten the Texture CD which is really cool. There are also tons of plugins on it. Yet I can't find a single documentation on any of them of even how to use them!!!

How can I tell a plugin was loaded?
What can I do to load a plugin?
Is it enough to just place it in the plugin directory? (I'm using Linux as OS)
Where do I find out what a specific plugin actually does?

Is there any documentation on plugins on the web?
Are there any plugin experts that can tell me what specific plugins do and how I use them?

Thanks for your help in advance.
A Gimp/PS debate is pointless. A Blender/LW debate is interesting.

Should answer most of your questions.
Unfortinately the sequencer tutorial is down however each of the plugins should have an example blend
file you can download that has a text version of how
to use it.

I believe the new online guide that is being worked on
has detailed info on using sequence and texture plugins as well. Check it out and of course if you have specific
questions don't hesitate to ask. As I mention on
the web site, the easiest way to learn is to look at the other plugins that have been written.

SirDude: You're missing eeshlo's QuietDune (Sequence) and Sunsky (texture) plugins.

Have the author's email addresses?
And or a link to where I can find them?
If so, I'll hunt them down and hopefully get them added.

I only have the DLLs, and they were on his iptic.com site (now down).

eeshlo@yahoo.com if you want to contact him.
