HELP - What filter is this?

A couple years ago I was tinkering around and applied a filter to the attached image, a section of which I have uploaded. (Left side: Before. Right side: After filter applied).

I didn't rename the layer with the filter name and settings used like I normally do.

Today I ran across this this image and wanted to recreate the effect on another source image, but...

I've been at it for about 1.5 hr and so far have been unable to determine WHICH of the many, many filters I have collected over the years was used to achieve this outcome. ("Too many filters, too little time.")

Effect summary:
* Divides image into rectangles and applies a thin line edge
* Appears to offset and/or distort the contents of each rectangle a bit
* Appears to apply a gradient to each rectangle to alter luminosity giving the appearence of depth

==> Help me out if you have a minute and take a look.

Do you recognize this effect? If so, what filter did I use?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like Xero's Fritillary filter Danny. Give that one a shot.

Thanks, Lyle... that was very, very close.

Though Fritillary wasn't it, your suggestion led me to the answer: Redfield Craquelure 3d. Fortunately when I opened this plugin the "Last used" settings were the ones that yielded this effect. I saved them as a custom preset for future ref. and updated the layer name accordingly.

While hunting for ths effect the past 24 hr it has been a fun trip down "memory lane." I dusted off plugins I hadn't opened in years. Too bad so many are etched in 32-bit stone, unable to make the direct leap to 64-bit. Glad to have 32-bit option available with Win 7 Pro and Ultimate.

Thanks for the nudge in the right direction. Now... I can sleep a little more peacefully.

I've not used Craquelure in a long time; you really must have created a custom preset to get this type result since I don't remember this pattern being part of that set. Anyway, glad you figured it out. Cool to see you post some too Danny.

Although, CS5 isn't compatible with most, if not all, of the plugins I've accumulated throughout the years. This really puts a crimp in my playing around. Tell me I'm not the only one who misses these fun plugins...including Impressionist.

I believe the 32-bit edition of CS5, an optional install if one is running Win 7 Pro or Ultimate, still runs the oldy/moldy 32-bit plugins like Impressionist. I'm counting on that.
