In the digital painting and 3D animation producing, we often worry for can not find some textures and mapping materials meeting different channel demands. If you find the built-in filters in Photoshop is not enough, then you can use Filter Forge to design and manufacture your own filters.

As a multi-purpose 2D texture, special effects and mapping builder (exists as a standalone application, also can be used as a Photoshop plug-in), Filter Forge is compact and efficient. It allows users to use a visual editor based on nodes to make their own filters library for Photoshop. All the generated filters are adjustable and editable, and belong to the seamless textures that have nothing to do with resolutions, which can be used as convex, diffuse reflection, specular highlights, and normal mappings, etc.
