Filter Forge

"On the surface, Filter Forge is just a Photoshop plugin, a pack of filters that generate textures, create visual effects, enhance photos, process images. However, there are 3 things that make Filter Forge unique:

1. You can create your own filters. Filter Forge comes with a visual node-based editor allowing you to create your own filters – textures, effects, distortions, backgrounds, you name it. All filters automatically support 16- and 32-bit modes in Photoshop, real-world HDRI lighting, bump and normal maps, huge resolutions and seamless tiling.

2. Anyone can submit filters to our online Filter Library where other users can download them – for free. This means that the more people use Filter Forge, the better it gets. Currently, the library contains 51 user-created filters.

3. Contributors get Filter Forge for free. You submit filters, they get popular with the users, we send you a free copy of Filter Forge. Sounds simple but don't expect a giveaway, you will have to earn it."

Shaderman7 + Ayam + Pixie = da bomb. Or Shaderman7 + K3D + Aqsis.
But it would be nice to be able to do it right in Photoshop.

I applied.

same here, Ken.

Seems like the site is in Beta also.
Everything works - except the most important bit.

From what I read - while clicking on everything trying to download - it's a plug-in like Deep Paint.
In other words, it is really a stand alone program, but it has a small loader / unloader plugin to interface with Photoshop.

Hi everyone! Doug, thank you for posting the link to Filter Forge!

Ken, ByRo -- regarding the download problem: the download is enabled when 1) you have filled in the beta testing section in your profile when registering, 2) we have approved you as a beta tester, and b) you are logged in. The link is as follows:

http://www.filterforge.com/download/

I guess we will need to go through the beta signup/download chain again to make sure people have no problems using it.

Yes, that' correct. It is marketed as a Photoshop plugin, but it works as a stand-alone app.

I got approved and I didn't have a problem.
Downloaded and installed.
Doesn't look too hard as I'm already familiar with Shaderman and DarkTree.

I'm off to play.

Does Filter Forge actually generate 8bf files, or do you need a copy of FF installed to use the filters?
