Filter Forge 5.0 Released!

Nov 19, 2015 at 10:02 pm by -gToon


Filter Forge is a plugin for Adobe Photoshop that allows you to build your own filters. The most recent version is Filter Forge 5.0 and it has just been released with a sweet discount for the Professional Edition.

Features
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, frames, 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 most filters can be seamlessly tiled.

    Nvidia Store
  2. You get free access to 11325 user-created filters. Anyone can contribute their textures and effects to the online filter collection so it grows with every submitted filter. This means the more people use Filter Forge, the better it gets. To view the filters, visit the Filter Library at https://www.filterforge.com/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. or more information, visit the reward program page at https://www.filterforge.com/more/freecopy.html

New Features Added in Filter Forge 5

Randomization Enhancements
Filter Forge 5.0 introduces much-requested enhancements to its randomization functions, including the ability to protect filter settings from randomization, the ability to quickly randomize specific parameters, and a simplified randomization settings menu.

Bomber Plus
Bomber Plus is a definite improvement to one of the most popular Filter Forge components. With 10 slave components it allows you to customize each particle individually and create an unlimited number of particle types.

Patterns Plus
Bricks, Tiles and Pavements, Filter Forge's "brick-and-mortar" components, have not changed since version 1.0. Filter Forge 5.0 finally refreshes them by adding slave components and making them support HDR colors.

Map Switch
Filter Forge 5.0 adds a new component that allows you to switch subtrees based on a mappable Selector input. It is particularly useful in conjunction with the new Bomber Plus.

Pixel Awareness
Filter Forge 5.0 adds a new component that allows you to switch subtrees based on a mappable Selector input. It is particularly useful in conjunction with the new Bomber Plus.

The Modulo component
A new Modulo component calculates the channelwise remainder after channelwise division of source RGB values by another set of RGB values.

Default Component Values
The right-click menu of most components now offers commands to save default values for a particular component, and reset them back to factory settings.
