Shear filter (modify Curve Bend)
Submitted by Jeff Witthuhn
I request a shear filter similar to that of photoshop for GIMP. Pretty much a description of the filter is it bends the inage based on a drawn curve. I believe this could be achieved with a modification of the current "curve bend" filter. Just allow to wrap the edges of the image and have a single curve for the whole image instead of two like in the curve bend filter. I believe that such a filter would help a lot for creating smoothly curved objects.
This image is the shear filter from photoshop to help show what I am trying to explain: http://img203.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img203&image=shear7us.jpg
