At some point (I can't remember if it was installation or first run) it asked me to make a choice between something like "expert" mode and "easy" mode. I'd be surprised if you can't changed it later. And mine works fine as a plugin from light room. So I'm fairly sure I got the full featured deal, all for free.

Ah ha...So yours has a full set of sliders? This is what mine looks like. Not much to play with. Far fewer sliders than screen shots I've seen in reviews of Film Pack 3. Well I guess there's no such thing as a free lunch. It's not bad but very limited with the very basic slider set.
No, mine looks exactly like yours. I have some sliders but didn't realise that wasn't the "full" set. Now I look back at my confirmation email, it says here is your activation code for blah blah "essential edition". Bum, I thought I'd somehow got the expert edition (I was confused by the download adverts in the download web page for version 4 essential and expert). Looking back at the web page, this offer is clearly for "essential".
Still, it's free eh!
I too used my AOL email twice since it's my throwaway account and the code didn't arrive. Finally I tried my work address and it instantly arrived but went straight to the spam folder.Very strange, used AOL (twice) and no activation code, tried again using Yahoo, bingo, there is was. Thanks.
I've had no issue with FP3 installing fine on either Windows8/64bit or MacOSX10.6/64bit. It runs both standalone and as a plugin in PS/CS4, PS/CS5, and LR4, all 64bit on both platforms....Those of us unable to access FP3 from Lightroom are probably running 64-bit systems, and by default LR only installs the x64 version on 64-bit OSes. Thus we end up with the standalone version only....
Unfortunately no. It says it's not upgradeable. I have to say I really like their Kodachrome 64 emulation and prefer it over others I've tried. Whether it's good or bad, I don't know. But I like it. Just not willing to spend $79 or $99 for it. And that's with the coupon code SONY092013.I wonder if one can purchase the cheaper upgrade of DXO4 with this installed instead of the full blown DXO4
My experience has been different. Installing on Windows 7 SP1/x64 and doing a custom install, I'm only able to select the standalone version. There's no plugin option for Photoshop CC, the latest is CS6, which I don't have. It also won't let me select the Lightroom plugin, either. It's been stated several times that "Edit in" is required to use the Lightroom plugin, but if it won't install, using "Edit in" is certainly not going to help. My supposition is simply from my own experience doing a custom install of both the FilmPack 3 freebie and FilmPack 4 trial ... as well as comments from others about their install experience. But from what you describe, it sounds like we've got two completely different pieces of software. Very strange indeed.I've had no issue with FP3 installing fine on either Windows8/64bit or MacOSX10.6/64bit.

I think the issue some are having is that FP3 is a distructive filter and, thus, can't function in LR as a live non-distructive "Preset" in LR's Develop mode. In LR, FP3 functions as an Export plugin and can be seen only when exporting an image.
Well you're in a better situation than me in that at least VSCO will work for you. :smile: (VSCO does not work with PS Elements)Unfortunately no. It says it's not upgradeable.
