Filter ForgeThe Filter Forge plugin-in can produce textures and effects like organic metallic and rocky surfaces, structures, abstract textures, repeating patterns, distortions, color corrections and more.

All filters are adjustable and editable, resolution-independent, seamlessly tiled and support real-world HDRI lighting. Also, filters can automatically generate diffuse, bump, specular and normal maps, which makes Filter Forge an essential tool for artists creating 3D models and environments, architectural visualization and high-end game content.

The main feature in Filter Forge is the Filter Editor, a visual node-based environment allowing users to build custom filters without writing a single line of code.

Another major feature is the Filter Library, a free online repository of user-created filters to which anyone can contribute. It makes Filter Forge immediately useful for anyone who has no time to learn the Filter Editor.

There is support for multi-core processors, 32-bit and large images, up to 32,000-32,000 pixels.

The beta (Windows) version of Filter Forge is available at http://www.filterforge.com upon registration and approval.
The OS X version for both Intel and PowerPC processors is in development. The final commercial version will be priced between $200 and $300 and is planned for release this fall.
