AV Bros. Page Curl is the filter plug-in (8bf) for Adobe Photoshop and compatible hosts. The plug-in is targeted to help you create two (2) types of effects using the all new and vastly improved engine: the very realistic turning page effect (Page Curl) and the folding page effect (Page Fold).

The plug-in lets you adjust the plethora of parameters while curling or folding the page. The new unique features of AV Bros. Page Curl along with the old ones let you create amazing effects in almost no time!

The User Interface of AV Bros. Page Curl is extremely convenient and has some special features that make your work with the plug-in not only pleasant, but very efficient as well.

Here are some key features of "Page Curl":
The ability to create not only the turning page effect (Page Curl), but the folding page effect (Page Fold) as well.
The ability to work with arbitrary-shaped images (non-rectangular, with full or partial transparent areas, etc.)
The total control over the process of creating the surface for curled or folded page by adjusting the following parameters of the surface:
- Angle, Level, Radius, Obliquity, Torsion and Direction (for page curling).
- Angle, Level, Folding Angle and Direction (for page folding).
The ability to make the curled part of the page to be outside the page's initial boundary.
Switching the direction (Upward or Downward) of page curling or folding.
