View Full Version : Post here if you want help
8th November 2001, 01:55
Considering a fair few people have been saying that they'd like some more detailed help on making presets, I figured I'd start this thread.
So if you want to know how something works, or some tips for tweaking an effect, or whatever, post your questions here.
I would ask that you be really specific with your questions though - there is a massive amount of stuff that I could teach you, and if you just ask how to make cool presets, it's a bit daunting.
So if you want some tips, or an explanation of how something works, let us know, and we'll try to help you.

Krash this is very nice of you to offer help. I need alot of help in certain areas, mostly in per_frame and per_pixel equation stuff you know the code at the bottom of the presets, but until I can figure out how to ask you a question that you will be able to answer in a way that I can learn I will have to wait. Unless you can sort of make me a help file explaining all that and how you write the code. I know there is alot of different code to make MD presets do different things. I hope this was not to confusing the way I worded this. In the past I just did trial and error stuff hoping to get an effect that I liked and in the top part of the presets I pretty much know what I am doing so lots of the time I was able to do things that I was looking for or wanted. Well I am a pretty fast learner when I have info to read and learn by that explains things in detail. When it comes to computers I am very knowledgeable, but all my knowledge of computers I learn by reading help files, trial and error and such and most of the info came form the net. Thanks, SM

Not a problem.
By far, the easiest way to teach anything is by using examples. So if you see a preset with an effect you find interesting (whether it's mine or not), and you wonder how it works, just ask. If you know the mathematics, then everything is really very simple to understand.
One thing - don't ask about any of Unchained's shifting presets just yet - although the individual effects are pretty simple, the shifting part is quite complex.
