In Topic: Requesting A Less Bright Workspace

Up to Genetica 3.6, the version you are using, the interface is indeed extremely bright. Unfortunately there's no UI option to modify the brightness, although it was dimmed somewhat in Genetica 4.

That's correct. Our intention is for you to be able to freely use Wood Workshop image output in your projects. 



> as long as you're not sharing the actual preset files?


That's not correct. As you quoted from the EULA: "You may freely use, modify, copy, and distribute Presets." The Wood Workshop EULA states that Spiral Graphics owns the presets, but it still gives you the right to use and distribute them (as long as your actions don't contradict our ownership of the presets).

Automatically generated maps can be a bit arbitrary since it's just a preset technique being used rather than an artist making specific decisions about which part of the texture is more "metallic" or more "rough". I'd just try slapping a Colorize or a Frequency node under whatever you're using to generate your specular or bump maps and play with it a bit until you find something that looks good in your shader.

Agreed and some very nice photographs there. Have you been to the Pacific Northwest yet?


That's coming up soon!

Hey guys! Sorry for being a stranger recently. I am indeed fine. After quite a few years glued to my computer, I decided to cool my jets for a bit and wander around North America. Here are some photos I took recently: https://500px.com/atlasr


A few weeks ago I finally upgraded to Studio because I needed to animate something -- you'd think a couple hundred bucks hitting his bank account from this would've struck a spark?  Apparently not.


I really appreciate the support, whether that be now or over the years. Regarding your purchase striking a spark, Genetica is a very complex piece of code that involved over a dozen developers over the years, and paying developers really added up. Unfortunately Genetica cost a bit more to produce than it made in sales, so I personally never profited financially from the project, although I did get to experience the deep joy of building something that I loved, and serving a passionate community.


The servers aren't getting turned off as long as there are people using Genetica. Your contribution will be used for the server costs.
