Filter Forge Professional Publisher's description
from Filter Forge, Inc.
A plugin for Adobe Photoshop that allows you to build your own filters.
Filter Forge Professional is a high-end plugin for Adobe Photoshop allowing computer artists to build their own filters вЂ“ seamless textures, visual effects, distortions, patterns, backgrounds, frames, and more. Filter Forge can produce a wide range of textures and effects which include organic structures, metallic and rocky surfaces, distortions, abstract textures, repeating patterns, color corrections, and more. All filters are adjustable and editable, seamlessly tiled, resolution-independent, and support real-world HDRI lighting. Also, filters can automatically generate diffuse, specular, bump, and normal maps, which makes Filter Forge an essential tool for artists creating 3D models and environments, architectural visualization and high-end game content. Filter Forge can work as a Photoshop plugin or a standalone application. The key features of Filter Forge include the Filter Editor and a free online library of user-created filters to which anyone can contribute. The Filter Editor is a visual node-based environment allowing users to build custom filters by connecting components into a network to combine their effects. Components include familiar operations such as blurs, gradients, color adjustments, distortions, and blending, as well as fractal noises, HLS and HSY color models, color-preserving adjustments, and more. For end-users, the filter internals are hidden behind a simple set of filter controls вЂ“ anyone can immediately benefit from filters without knowing what is inside them. Filter Forge's rendering engine takes full advantage of multi-core processors вЂ“ for example, a dual-core processor can speed the rendering up to 96%. A high-precision floating-point rendering pipeline allows Filter Forge to support 16- and 32-bit image modes and allows users to save the results into high-precision image formats, such as OpenEXR. Filter Forge's custom memory manager allows it to render large bitmaps вЂ“ up to 65536x65536 pixels вЂ“ even on moderate amounts of RAM.
