Maybe next week, I'll check into filter forge and then get some of your filters to play with.

patricia, thanks

that filter is one i've been poking at for a while. i was sort of waiting till the next big update in FF, but finally broke down and submitted it. i'll probably revise it and add some real frosting and maybe colored glass when the update comes out....soon, i hope

patricia, hehehe....me too. but that's one of the beauties of FF; you dont need to know math. just plug n play. most of the stuff i do is done by some knowledge of how things work, but a lot is just 'let's see what this does' and then going from there.

in fact, i'll tell you a little secret. i made one GIANT filter quite a while back. this was a real messy one. lines were going everywhere, but it creates some really interesting effects and it's MASSIVE! so, when i got done with this behemoth, i decided not to submit it. but, i started making presets, tons of presets. i use the randomizer and find all sorts of things i'd swear i never put in there. when i find something interesting i make THAT one my default preset and then go back into the editor. that takes my preset into the editor as well. all i do then is trace this preset back down the chain of components and find out what is creating this effect, what components. i write this down or simply highlight all those components and hit 'copy'. i then back out of the editor and open a new filter. i then simply paste my chain as the new filter and start tweaking it.

simple
