Scummy tactic so I will by scummy to:
Here a list where I did find alternatives for this Addon. https://twitter.com/nuttylmao/status/1646898358181834752
This plugin was wonderful while it was free. Now that it is paywalled, I've had to keep an older build of OBS installed just to use the last free version of the plugin. At least there are alternatives starting to show up. Would like to use this plugin again, but not going to happen unless it goes back to being free.
In a very suspicious turn of events the developer, claiming that a non GPL compatible source code was used by a contributor, removed ALL of the install binaries from assets. There is no installer you can download, no stable and no beta versions. Effectively, with this clever trick, you can ONLY get a build through his expensive recurring Patreon or build it yourself... Nicely done Xaymar.
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.
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. ..
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.
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
