Usage Rank reflects the popularity of a filter. It is calculated for every filter in the Filter Library and is based on the Usage Stats submitted by the users of Filter Forge. The most important function of Usage Rank is to provide us with a basis to reward the authors of popular filters.
Class is going REALLY well! They are loving your stuff.

“Oh my god, I've got to get into this!”
“For 3D modelers, Filter Forge is a dream come true. It creates seamless textures with a single mouse click. The professional version creates the following map types for any texture: bump, normal, specular strength, specular exponent, diffuse, metallic, and alpha. The same filter can be used to generate any resolution, since filters are procedural.”
