The review is rather general, don't you think? VP really must be used as a combination with other things, or with two of it's own filters. Personally I like VP because of the fantastic abstract or just plain outrageous effects you can get. VP 4 also has a couple new filters, which, while most people have ignored them, I absolutely love. You have to play with them and not just pooh-pooh them. I especailly like the gothic and fauvist filters, but there is a definite place for the embroidery filter as well. These three filters really can't be duplicated with any other program or filter...well...without a ton of tinkering.
