sorry for the n00b questions, but i’ve had to leave 3.09 behind may great years with it and im trying to find my way around the new standalone
where do i load a background image into PI now, i can see where to toggle it on off but not to load
You can’t load images in the standalone version of PI at this time.
Some of these videos may help, although the earlier ones show the outdated UI:
shame, i was a long time user of 3.09 maybe 15 years, i have the afx plugin, but find it much slower than the standalone and due to osx updates can no longer run the old version
You have the old wondertouch/GenArts PI plugin, which was quite limited. The modern PI plugin is a completely different beast, and worth trying out.
