“Chief among my pleasures is Filter Forge, which I've been ranting (positively) and raving (voraciously) about ever since it entered my life.”

“It's a powerful and logical way of creating effects that's relatively easy to learn by seeing how other effects are built. Creating filters from scratch is time-consuming, but for a wider user group, it's a great way to modify already-created effects.”
