Hello,
Why do not add the Distorsion Displacement CI filter as all it needs is a Scale setting and a Displacement map like the Glass Distorsion one?
Some other CI filters like the Shaded Material for ex. are really interesting but need some other to work (Shaded Material needs the output of Height Field From Mask for ex. or more simpler the use of greyscales mask).
And why not permit Image Tricks to use the *ImageUnit.plugin(s) found at
/Library/Graphics/Image Units/
?
I've found some plugin here:

Not all are usefull for still images editing but the principle is great and it's working with some app; like Intaglio for ex. (http://www.purgatorydesign.com/Intaglio/).

Glass Distortion filter of Image Tricks is the same as Distortion Displacement Core Image Filter. It has scale parameter in addition to Glass Texture parameter, which has several predefined textures and a custom one.
We plan to add some standard Core Image filters, such as Shaded Material, in the following update.
We have no plans to support Image Unit plug-In's in the nearest future, although we provide additional filters in Image Tricks PRO version.

Hi,
Do you mean that the Glass Distorsion filter of image Tricks don't use the "real" Glass Distorsion Core Image Filter?
Is there any particular reason (yes, I have a inquiring mind ;^) ?

You are right, actually we use Glass Distortion Core Image filter in Image Tricks :-)

I love to be right ;^)
Joking apart, using same "textures" with Glass Distorsion and Displacement Distorsion give really similar results but as the two exist, there is certainly a good reason.
But which is it?
