The beta version is a fully functional trial version of the Professional edition. If the beta testing extends beyond the trial period, you can ask for a beta license key via the contact form. You can request any number of keys for any edition of Filter Forge for Mac. The beta keys won't work with the commercial version.

Registered users who are subscribed to our newsletter will receive the news related to the beta testing by email. If you don't want to receive emails, you can subscribe to our news RSS feed.

Users who are lucky to find bugs will receive a free copy of Filter Forge. Rewards will be granted after the commercial Mac version of Filter Forge is released. All free copies will be download-only, no CDs will be shipped. Here's what you get for reporting bugs:

  • Bugs that are already on the Known bugs list are not accepted.
  • The credit for a bug is given to the first user who submitted it.
  • The bugs must be Mac-exclusive (bugs that occur on Mac only, not on both Mac and PC).
