FilterForge 3.0 ships

Procedural texture-generation tool Filter Forge 3.0 has finally shipped after a lengthy period in beta.

We reported on the early beta releases in May and July, and as far as we can see, nothing major has been added since then, so the key new features are still support for multiple soure images, progressive and wipe previews and a new Bezier curve editor – just now complete and (presumably) stable.

The software already generates resolution resolution-independent bump, specular, diffuse and normal maps automatically, with support for HDRI, 32-bit workflow and floating-point file formats like OpenEXR.

FilterForge 3.0 is available for Windows and Mac, functioning both as a standalone application and a Photoshop plug-in. The software is available in three editions, with RRPs ranging from $149 to $399.
