Boris Optics FX 2022 by Oliver Peters
On his Digital Films blog, Oliver talks about what has changed in the most recent release, including Mac M1 support, Metal acceleration, and the introduction of Particle Illusion.
All in all, it’s a sweet application that really helps when stuck for ideas about what to do with an image when you want to elevate it above the mundane. Getting great results is fast and quite enjoyable – not to mention, infinitely easier than in Photoshop. Overall, Optics is a great tool for any photographer or graphic designer.Oliver Peters, Digital Films

PetaPixel goes through the new features, and some previously included features.
Value-wise, Boris FX Optics 2022 provides a lot, especially once you consider its reasonable $149 purchase price. There are several other plugins and stand-alone apps on the market that are similar to Optics 2022, but none seem to offer as diverse a set of plugins without asking you to pay for additional downloads. Additionally, few offer the ease of use or functional control the Boris FX toolset does.David Crewe, PetaPixel
