Motivation:

At SplutterFish, we develop and experiment with all kinds of new techniques and ideas. This page will be where we post and distribute the software that is not part of our commercial line. Our commercial software is availble to registered users through their SplutterFish Account Pages.

A lot of the software we experiment with is inspired by the latest published techniques, and while we may have working versions, some of this software is never really "finished". This webpage gives us an opportunity to extend our development cycle and testing, and creates a forum for releasing some of our cooler, but perhaps more unstable, experiments.

Disclaimer:

All the usual disclaimers apply. Things like: If anything breaks it's not our fault. If everything works, it is :). We are very busy at SplutterFish, so we don't officially support these free plugins. We will do what we can to help out, but updates and answers may be sporadic. Any new features or improvements that appear in these plugins is not guaranteed to be available in future versions.

Webmasters:  If you wish to mirror these plugins, drop us an e-mail and get permission first, sign up for our announcements mailing list, keep the zipfile contents unmodified, and keep your copies up to date.  A simpler solution may be to link directly to the plugins through the links on this site, rather than mirroring the files to other sites. Thanx for your cooperation on this. Please don't mirror the plugins with low CR's - (CR ratings below 5) - These should be considered experimental and not ready for general consumption.

For information on distribution and licensing, drop and e-mail to contact@splutterfish.com.

Download:

Note:  Each downloadable file has an associated Confidence Rating (CR), zero to ten, that reflects our guess as to how stable the software is. A rating of 10 would mean that the code is bulletproof and a rating of 0 would mean that we believe that the plugin is currently dangerous to use for anything other than perusal. Any item with a CR less than 5 should be considered experimental and not ready for general consumption.
