Extremely capable masking app marred by a terminally bad DRM scheme that punishes legitimate users (transferring your license to a new disk on the same computer causes you endless grief). Updating? I'm not that masochistic. Well, after my third attempt I got the message that it hates me.

FM comes as a plug-in for PS and Aperture, and also as a stand-alone App. I currently can only use the stand-alone version because it refuses to co-operate with PS (did I mention terminally bad DRM?).

Another strike is the decidedly Windowsy interface - FM looks (and performs) like a WINE-based application.

Which is a shame, really, because few masking tools work as effectively as this one. If you do a lot of complex masking (especially hair other fine-detail work), you should definitely give it a try.

Same problem as Beige, I use to work test many things with my Mac Pro and every clone and change of HD the protection and licence are off.
Just cloned my system ton an SSD and bam...and they are slow to answer to the tickets.
Always the same problem with the loyal customer, we are many times in trouble with those licence and I don't like to have these startup items in my system Paces antipiracy and Nalpeiron Copy Protection.
Bad as the product is very good.

This is a good plug-in but the piss-poor DRM and license manager is broken and I have had to contact their support for a new license at least 5 times. I'm writing this as I'm about to contact them yet again. Avoid this software until they find a way to remove the terrible DRM.

I've since stopped using this software because it breaks so much from activation problems. I'm using Photoshop CS5's awesome masking edge tools.
