Filter Forge is a versatile Photoshop plugin which lets both novice and expert users create a wide variety of realistic and abstract textures and effects. Users can take instant advantage of over 7793 free community-created filters in the online filter library, or create their own filters in the visual filter editor by assembling them from components such as blurs, gradients, color adjustments, noises, distortions, or blends вЂ“ without writing a single line of code.
The most important feature of Filter Forge вЂ“ a visual node-based editor which lets you create your own visual effects and procedural textures.
Online Filter Library
Filter Library is a free online repository of filters submitted by Filter Forge users. You can access the Library directly from the user interface of Filter Forge. Users who contribute good filters can earn rewards, including a free copy of Filter Forge.
Most filters in Filter Forge support seamless tiling, even for non-square textures. A simple one-click operation, Seamless Tiling works no matter whether you have downloaded the filter or created it yourself in Filter Editor.
Bump and Normal Maps
Filter Forge can generate diffuse, bump, specular and normal maps for its filters вЂ“ most seamlessly tiled, and all fully anti-aliased and perfectly matching each other вЂ“ a real life-saver for artists working on textures for next-gen games.
All filters in Filter Forge are generated procedurally and don't depend on external bitmaps; therefore, they are resolution-independent. You can render the same filter in any resolution without losing any detail.
