Is there a REAL bevel Filter/Script Somewhere
There is 1 thing that annoys me in GIMP is the lack of Bevel filters. In fact they are there, they just does not work or have little effects. I tried so far:

Filter -> Decor -> Add Bevel
and
Script Fu -> Layer Effects -> Bevel and Emboss

and both gives uninteresting or simply no results.

I would be looking for something like in "Paint shop Pro". Here is a screen shot of the dialog.

It's easy, simple and it works. Here are a few examples of stuff I have done with this dialog:

[Image: Texture_02.png]
[Image: Texture_03.png]
[Image: Texture_04.png]
[Image: Texture_05.png]

Right now, I cannot reproduce any of these effects with GIMP.

Is there a plug-in somewhere that does have advanced Bevel Functions?

Thank You for any help

(on the hole, alway look at the Gimp Registry if you are looking for scripts/plugins)

Hi there,

Although this is an old post, for anyone else who's looking - this works well, you just need to play around with it a bit to make it do what you want:
