Tinder plugin

Hi everyone,

How can one purchase tinder plug-in, are they still approachable?? Not able to find the site.

I believe Genarts were taken over by Boris so get in touch with them… or have I got the wrong Tinder to which I know nothing about. LOL

Yeah, Genarts bought Tinder off the Foundry, but now that Boris owns Genarts I’m not seeing any evidence of Tinder.

Any specific plugin you’re looking for?

Looking for T_MinMax, this works like charm.

Curious what you used this for specifically? It’s a blend mode I’ve hardly ever used.

I’m not sure what this plugin does because all I find when I search for list of tinder plugins is dating app stuff, but I know I personally use max lighten when I’m doing fine beauty work and just want to apply it to dark pores/ splotches without losing highlights. I’ve used min darken when I roto something that’s dark and very small but surrounded by bright pixels, like a tree branch over a bright building, to avoid a bright halo. The caveat is that it really truly is hit or miss, and can have really sharp edges, though sometimes even just changing the transparency to 1 or 2% can fix that. I don’t use them often, but have to varying degrees of success. But again, I have no idea if that’s what T_MinMax is…

I’ve seen the min/max transfer mode, although I’m not sure where. I think the Knoll lens flares came with a minmax and a divide plugin… (back in like 2003)

My hunch is it’s an overlay-type thing where anything below 50% is min and above 50% is max, but I honestly don’t know. If we can get clarification on the math maybe someone can code up a matchbox to do this.

(or maybe someone already has?)

Ah, I think you’re right @andy_dill, I can’t actually get to this Substance3d forum post for whatever reason (it just takes me to a list of apps) but I do see this snippet intimating what you’re getting at

I have a minmax.mx. I used the Tinder one a lot to clean text from live screens shot on Fruit Phones. Some years ago someone whipped it up for me.

Where can I stick it for y’all to grab?


@aaronneitz What does it do exactly? Do you have a good use case example? Ope, never mind! I didn’t read about the fruit phones!

It’s sorta a median but defers to the brightest pixels or the darkest pixel in a region.

I believe you can upload it here. Pls let us know when it’s available. Thanks!

Ok, sorry folks. it’s md_minmax. MinMax Matchbox (flamemark.wixsite.com). So not mine to give out freely? Mark Doney - whom I believe is no longer with us.

At least we know it’s matchboxable.
