It keeps saying "failed to load" I used the Windows installer and then loaded manually, but it still says when opening OBS, failed to load so I just removed the program. It will not work. I do not know if you have to have X32 DLLs as well as most of the other OBS Plug-ins do since you have 64 but everyone else seems to say it works so I do not know what I may be doing wrong.
It would be appreciate if you can provide your log file.
0.7.0 Review:

The false color changes on this version are incredible! The Incorporated key to the false color is a welcomed change.

I customized a bit on a version. I typically reference grayscales on a scale of 0 to 700 millivolts as opposed to percentages. I built out custom lines over the top of the waveform monitor to coordinate with millivolt value.

0 to 700 mV Value - RGB Value - % of White
0 0 0%
50 18 7.06%
100 36 14.12%
150 55 21.57%
200 73 28.63%
250 91 35.69%
300 109 42.75%
350 128 50%
400 146 57.25%
450 164 64.31%
500 182 71.37%
550 200 78.43%

Very useful for setting white balance and color grading. Great work!
This is an absolutely wonderful plug-in. I took this plug-in and incorporated into a portable version of the most recent OBS. This portable version is preconfigured with preset scenes. Anything placed into the VIDEO SOURCE scene will be reflected in all other scenes for Vector/Waveform/False/Zebra

Used NDI Tools IRE Test Patterns 0-100 by increments of 5 to build out a scale for false color.

Download Link to ZIP file - Unzip and read the README to get started.
must be used when working with any cameras.
brilliant work !
Amazing work. The level of detail and customization available is astounding.
Great job !
Can't believe I didn't know about this plugin sooner. This is an amazing resource for people who have bad monitors and need to know how to monitor their webcams and such properly. I made a video on this plugin for that reason. Thank you!
I had small challenges with installation but anyhow, I did it in 15 minutes after finding this plugin.

First impression of the plugin is very very good. I am streaming events performed on river - and video is often over exposed because the water is reflecting light and light is changing during the day. While in outdoors it is sometimes difficult to see the level of light from monitor.

I took some over exposed videos and compared to videos where light was ok - this plugin really show the difference, which will help me to monitor the level of light on future events.

This really seems to be solution to monitor the level of the light.
Amazing solution, makes it really easy to color correct on the fly, just like a real NLE. Thanks!
