Filter Forge is a high-end graphic application allowing computer artists to build their own filters - seamless textures, patterns, backgrounds, and more. The key features of Filter Forge include a visual filter editor to build custom filters without writing a single line of code, and a free online library of user-created filters to which anyone can contribute.
Filter Forge can produce a wide range of textures and effects which include organic structures, wood, metallic and rocky surfaces, abstract textures, repeating patterns, and more. All filters are adjustable and editable, seamlessly tiled, resolution-independent, and support real-world HDRI lighting. Also, filters can automatically generate diffuse, specular, bump, and normal maps.
