This filter implements a realistic engraving effect. Technically, it is implemented by distorting the original image with a sine wave, applying a striped pattern and performing the reverse distortion. The filter uses new RGB Math components (Divide and Multiply) introduced in Filter Forge 2.0 for dampening the wave amplitude proportionally to the number of waves.
