PLEASE RECONSIDER! Many creators who rely on Patreon make their stable releases available to the public while offering beta versions to supporters. I think this is a compromise you should consider. StreamFX has benefitted hundreds (if not thousands) of streamers (including myself) and could continue to do so if made available for free or at a lower cost.
3 Euro reichen euch nicht? Jetzt ehrlich habe ich bezahlt und möchte nur einen weichzeichner haben mehr haben!! abzocke eckelhaft!!
I understand the time and effort involved in creating and maintaining a product like this.
BUT the plugin isn't required to stream or even to improve the quality of your stream because there are several other more affordable options available. Therefore it just simply isn't worth the money.

It was fun while it lasted. Farewell StreamFX.
Another will soon take your place.
OBS Studio is open source and free. You can't program this plugin without OBS, but you want to get paid for it... and ignore GPL license... the OBS project doesn't block the plugin yet... I don't understand, they're just good-natured and you just take advantage of something like that. ..
The GPL license does not prevent selling a product.
I relied on the shaders for StreamFX. The person who runs this project is very rude and he's very greedy. OBS isn't to pay your paycheck, this is a GNU-licensed project, and it's OPEN SOURCE, not a CLOSED SOURCE. It's time for the project manager to retire and find another job so he can get the pay he wants and let the community manage the project. There is no money in this, it's not reasonable to pay $11 for each release and for people who can build it to not pay.
It was once one of he must have Plugins in OBS.
I still have a OBS Install of 29.0.2 Version with the portable Edition of StreamFX - And i will keep this version maybe.

But here is the real talk: I understand you want and need money for your time you spend on this Plugin. Thats fine and i dont have any Problems to pay for something just once. But it seems you need to have a subscription on petreon to use it? I could compile the sources by myself but for what? But i am not interested in spend more time looking into this :D because:

There are a lot of other Plugins that replace the main functions I used of this. For Example you can use other Plugins for 3D, Blur, Source Mirroring and so on :) They are free and they do what i need

With this Competition it seems it wasnt the best model to switch to a paywall as you can see of the comments in here. You lost a lot of rating and i guys also a lot of users. I Still give 2 Star instead of only one like many do - because i used this tool so many years now.

Anyway I wish you guys good luck with this project.
For me it is time to move on.
Paywall how are we suppose to test it?
Well, the installer for version 0.11.1, which was the last stable version, is no longer available, and they still haven't released a version for obs 29, so I think it's official, we can only have access to the installer by paying
Dev violates GPL by committing non-GPL code so Binaries are removed Now full-on GPL violation with paywall
Uninstalled plugin but it left some dlls somewhere in file system. Due to it I wasn't able to use OBS 28-29 for past several months, because it was crashing at start.
I can no longer use this because I cannot afford a 10/mo subscription. That's just insane. Not even a free tier with like half the options (blur is the one I used mostly).
Calm down wisherfox or should i call u Xaymar's ALT acc
I originally found StreamFX just to get a basic blur video filter, which isn't available in OBS. I was very happy with this plugin for that purpose a year ago.
There are compatibility issues with OBS 28+, so I've given up on StreamFX for now, and settled with a workaround in vanilla OBS: dramatically downscaling and then upscaling the video source, with bilinear interpolation.
The Patreon business model doesn't really make sense for software dev work, in my eyes. Either the output is freeware, or available as a commercial product.
I could probably invest a few hours to build it from source myself once there's a stable v0.12, but that's a bit annoying and not feasible for most users.
Hopefully things come good soon, but it all seems a bit stagnant and toxic here at the moment.
Paywalling current versions despite OBS not working with the latest stable releases is not a good move, just as others already said. I will stop using this plugin for now...
StreamFX requires funding to be maintained and this was the only available way at the time. Without funding StreamFX would have recieved no further updates.
This plugin served me well in the past but I can no longer recommend it for general use.
I used StreamFX for a single source and filter. I don't need 90% of what StreamFX offers, and I would rather not have to jump through a bunch of hoops and/or paywalls, while also potentially dealing with the usual open source developer mindset that is unfortunately common (ie. your feedback or issue is bad or wrong, our code is infallable and free of issues, nothing is ever our fault and is always the users fault. If you have a problem then code it yourself), just to use a single filter on the latest stable version of OBS 29.
Currently, the only version for OBS 29 is officially available via Patreon. I don't have a problem with paywalling of pre-release versions in general, however when the latest stable version of StreamFX hasn't been updated for over 2 (likely will be 3) stable versions of OBS, that's where the move towards monetization becomes sour for me.
Seeing how there hasn't been a stable release for so long, I consider StreamFX to be depricated and should be treated as such. I highly suggest finding alternatives wherever possible. Source Clone by exeldro is a great alternative to Source Mirrors, and is what I am now using.
StreamFX is still actively updated, thanks to the funding acquired through the current monetization model. Without funding, StreamFX would have ceased to recieve any and all updates permanently.

Patrons currently can use pre-releases and recieve support for it, but Public support is limited to Stable features and versions. The publicly available wiki also lists all features and their current status (Experimental, Unstable, Stable, Deprecated, Removed) and we always say to not use non-Stable features in production. We know they're broken, we've warned about it, and if you fail to heed that warning it is on you.
Lol paywall even when the plugin keep lagging behind the current version of OBS, making it unusuable, dev went nuts.
As development and maintenence of a plugin takes time, and time is not free, funding is required to ensure updates can even happen. Patrons can already use versions that fully support OBS 29.0.
My review was yet again removed by an admin.
Love the plugin, hate the monthly fee to get access to the newest builds. Would prefer a 1 time payment option with access to all future builds.
We offer the option to build from source, as with any open source project. A one time fee is not possible for continous development, especially with "inflation". The one time license fee is your time it takes to build it yourself.
Used this a lot in the older OBS versions. Just wanted to thank the dev. Looking forward to the next stable release. Don't let the hate get to you. The people complaining about the "paywall" are the same people that would complain about buggy "unstable" releases if they were to download an alpha version.
I love this plugin it is very useful, My question to the creator is the payment is in patreon?
Stable versions (v0.11.1) are available for free. Pre-release versions, at least in binary form, currently require supporting the project on Patreon.
Keep going. I don't want this project to drop.
