Photoshop :: Smart Filters (not) Operating In Stack

Sep 6, 2012

Photoshop lets add multiple Smart Filters (SF) to the same Smart Object (SO), and define the blending mode of each SF separately.

Let's say I've a SO with two SF (Gaussian Blur and Median): it looks like they operate in stack, that is: the first filter (Gaussian Blur) is applied to the original SO, while the second (Median) is applied to the result of the first filter (i.e. the blurred SO). As a consequence, if you switch the order of the SF, the result changes. That's the way it is.
My question is as follows: is there a preference / setting hidden somewhere that would make the multiple Smart Filters of a single SO operate *not* in stack, but on the very same SO, letting the blending modes to do the blend? I doubt, but it's fair to ask.

Photoshop :: Making All Filters Work As Smart Filters

Jul 22, 2009

In CS3 you could change something to make all filters act like smart filters, even though they won't. I found this worked very well, now I have CS4 and would like to do the same but can't remember what to do to make it work.

Photoshop :: Transform Applied To Smart Object Fails To Transform Attached Smart Filters Mask

Aug 9, 2012

Ps CS6
OSX 10.6.8
Problem: Transform applied to Smart Object fails to transform an attached Smart Filters Mask.
I mean a Transform, including Free Transform, as found in the Edit menu.  A simple move by the Move Tool is OK.
A workaround until this bug is squashed is to encapsulate the Smart Object + Smart Filters + Filter Mask inside another Smart Object and transform that.However, that will not be a satisfactory solution in some cases. If a filter has size parameter(s), e.g. Gaussian Blur radius, a scaling or warping/distorting transform applied after the filter will obviously differ from the filter applied after the transform.
In any case, the workaround is inconvenient to subsequent editing and experimenting with filters and masks.

Photoshop :: Scale Smart Filters

Sep 14, 2012

PSDCS6(13.01)  Mac 10.7.4. Can you scale smart filters? 
At least with layer effects you can:

layer >> layer style >> scale effects

Was disappointed that in CS6 they did not add a way to do this automatically, or at least to be able to do this to multiple layers than each individually. Any info on this besides converting a group of layers to a smart object first before scaling.

Photoshop :: Layer Converted For Smart Filters

Oct 24, 2013

PS5 Vista. After a layer is converted for smart filters, the whole image still must be made 8 bit to apply a smart filter only to the converted layer, which defeats the purpose of the layer conversion and the utility of smart filters. I would like the rest of the image to remain 16 bit.

Photoshop :: Greyed Out Filters With Smart Object Channel

Nov 27, 2013

Using Photoshop CC I cannot apply any filter to a converted layer into a Smart Object if I select only a channel instead of RGB channel..Let me explain it with an example:
I create a new layer.Convert it into smart layer (vía menu Filters > Convert… or secondary clic hover the layer, it doesn't matter).

Select only one channel, p.e. green channel.Try to apply a filter… oh, wait! They all appears greyed out

This NOT happens in previous versions of PS, like CS6 or CS5. Neither if I select RGB channel.It happens on 8 bits or 16 bits.

GIMP :: Convert For Smart Filters And Other Photoshop Stuff

Aug 11, 2011

I was positively surprised to find out that many of the options in the tutorial are also in Gimp. However there are something I could not find and I am not sure if this is because they are named differently or else because they are still not there.

The first thing I did not find is "Convert for Smart Filters". In the tutorial it says using this "you can apply filters to the photo while leaving your original in tact. It's a non-destructive way of applying filter effects, as you'll be able to adjust the filters you've applied at any time. First you'll get a message saying the layer will be converted into a Smart Object.".

Another thing I could not find is "Vignette" and "Midpoint"options in Lens Correction (in Gimp I found Lens Distortion) window. Do these exist in Gimp? or can be created with some other filter?

Xara :: Photoshop Filters Not Working And Removing Demo Filters

Jan 31, 2011

I have hardly ever used filters for any of my work as I have preferred using Xara's native tools and effects to get what I wanted. But recently, I was inspired by some animation work which used backgrounds painted in Photoshop. They used a lot of textures which enhanced the look of the animation and so I thought I'd try to simulate it within Xara.

It works very well and I can export it as a PSD retaining the layers and Alpha channel. But here come my questions.

1. How can I remove the two Alien Skin demo plugins as I already have the full versions.

2. Why don't the native Photoshop plugins--Artistic, Sketch, etc.--seem to work?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Lift Station Pumps Not Operating Correctly?

Apr 15, 2013

I'm modeling a sanitary sewer network in SSA. The network consists of a gravity system that collects wastewater from several buildings and coveys it to a lift station. Two pumps at the lift station pump wastewater through a 6-inch force main that is approximately 1,300 ft long and it is not connected to any other force mains so no other pumps are pumping into the system. There is one gravity main at the end of the force main that delivers the wastewater to the headworks of the wastewater treatment plant. The pumps are rated at 430 gpm at 75 ft, with a shutoff head of 110 ft.

The problem is that the model says that 1,100 gpm is flowing through the force main with one pump running. This is not possible as the TDH of the pump would need to be 220 ft to deliver that much flow. I'm using a Type 3 curve to define the pump. The force main is defined as "Circular Force Main" with a Hazen C factor of 120 and Manning's n of 0.013.

I've deleted the pumps and curves and reinserted them, but that didn't change anything. I'd like to avoid rebuilding the entire model
