Filter Forge 2.0 arrives

The new version of Filter Forge, a visual (node-based) tool for creating your own filter effects, has been released for Mac and Windows.  According to the developers, new features include:

  • Support for non-seamless filters
  • Unrestricted transform components (Move, Scale, Rotate, etc.)
  • Full support for HDR colors (they may even have negative RGB values)
  • Instant filter search (searches your collection of downloaded filters)
  • ‘Bomber’ component for spraying particles (very fast, very versatile)
  • Lua scripting (Lua is a fast scripting language also used by Lightroom)
  • Photorealistic lighting (shadows via Ambient Occlusion, point/area lights etc.)

Neat stuff.

    That is an awesome plugin, but it doesn’t support CS5, but you probably already know that :/ I received an email from them with the “we’re working on it” response.

    While the plugin version doesn’t work, it can still be used in standalone mode.
