The ability to rearrange filter presets via drag and drop was among the most popular feature requests. But 64-bit support is, without doubt, the killer feature of Filter Forge 6.
(PRWEB) November 20, 2016
Filter Forge, Inc. today announced the commercial release of Filter Forge 6.0, a desktop application for Windows and macOS allowing digital artists to build their own filters in a visual editor or download over 11,000 user-submitted filters from the online library. Filter Forge 6.0 features full 64-bit support both on Windows and macOS, a new native macOS version rewritten for Cocoa, over 30 updated components for filter creation, and improved user interface for reordering filter presets via drag-and-drop. For more information, visit the Filter Forge website at http://www.filterforge.com
Filter Forge is a powerful Photoshop plugin and a stand-alone desktop application for Windows and macOS that allows photographers, web designers, 3D modelers and other computer artists to apply over 5800 ready-to-use visual effects to their images, generate over 6000 of unique procedural textures, and create their own filters. There are 3 key features that make Filter Forge stand out among similar tools:
1. A free online filter library containing over 11,800 user-created textures and effects, making Filter Forge instantly useful for anyone who has no time to learn how to create filters. New filters are added every week. All filters are adjustable and resolution independent, and most of them support seamless tiling, real-world HDRI lighting, and can automatically generate diffuse, specular, bump, and normal maps. To view the filters, visit the Filter Library at http://www.filterforge.com/filters/
2. A visual filter editor that allows digital artists to create their own filters by arranging components such as blurs, gradients, color adjustments, distortions, or blends, into a network to combine their effects. For end-users, the filter internals are hidden behind a simple set of controls, so anyone can immediately benefit from filters without having to learn their inner workings.
3. Contributors who submit filters to the online filter library can get a full version of Filter Forge 6.0 at no cost. A filter that gets popular with the users earns a reward point. Three reward points earn the author a free copy of Filter Forge. For more information, visit the reward program page at http://www.filterforge.com/more/freecopy.html
The key feature of Filter Forge 6.0 is full support for 64-bit operating systems, both on Windows and macOS. The most immediate benefit of the new 64-bit versions is the ability to access more than 4 GB of RAM, which significantly improves user experience with rendering large images
For macOS users, Filter Forge 6.0 introduces a new native version for macOS rewritten for the modern Cocoa API. The rewritten version comes with multiple user interface enhancements such as support for trackpad and Apple Magic Mouse.
For filter creators, Filter Forge 6.0 introduces mappable checkboxes, a new parameter type which was added to 33 existing components. It gives filter authors more expressive power by allowing parameter mapping, the foundational principle of Filter Forge, to be applied to component parameters defined by checkboxes. And finally, users can now rearrange filter presets on the Presets tab via drag-and-drop.
"The ability to rearrange filter presets via drag and drop was among the most popular feature requests", said Vladimir Golovin, CEO of Filter Forge, Inc. "But 64-bit support is, without doubt, the killer feature of Filter Forge 6."
Filter Forge 6.0 is available for Windows and macOS. It can be used as a stand-alone application or as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop and compatible host applications. The fully-functional 30-day trial version is available at the Filter Forge download page at http://www.filterforge.com/download/
Filter Forge 6.0 is offered in three differently priced editions targeted at entry-level, mainstream and professional graphic artists.
