How do I create and save Setup files?

 Creating a 'digital recipe' using a set up file.

A Setup takes a snapshot of the filters and parameter settings applied to your image. Setups can be saved and loaded and are independent of the image they were originally applied to.

  * In Dfx software-  Open an Image or Frame in the Dfx interface > Apply a Dfx filter

  1. Choose a preset and make some parameter adjustments.
  2. Add additional filters if you like by clicking the Add Layer icon at the top of the Effect Window and then selecting another filter. 
  3. Select File > Save Setup.
  4. When the file browser opens, enter a name and click Save.

    5. You can now apply this setup to a different image or clip using File > Open Setup.

 Mobile App to Desktop-

*Photo Fx and Dfx Users-you can create a set up file in Photo Fx or Photo Fx Ultra and use it as a mobile workflow.  In Photo fx use the email function to send that set up file (your digital recipe) to your computer that has Dfx on it. Essentially you can use that set up file to transfer your effects into your Dfx interface. Once in Dfx , you can continue to edit and effect within the interface.

  1. Apply a Photo fx or Photo Fx Ultra filter to your image
  2. Choose a preset and make some parameter adjustments.
  3. Add additional layers or filters
  4. Choose Dfx Email Set Up:
    Your set up file(photofx.dfx) becomes an attachment that you can send to yourself or anyone who uses Dfxv3 still software (Standalone or Photo  plug-in). Once the email is received on the Dfx computer, simply open the email and download the set up file. The email also contains a helpful list of the filters used.
  5. On your computer>Open or Drag and Drop a supported image into the Dfx interface> Open Set Up> navigate to your downloaded set up file and retrieve the photofx.dfx file and open.
  6. The set up file will bring in the effects created in Photo fx into the Effect Layers of Dfx, which then can be kept or modified from that point forward in the Dfx interface.
