Summary

I try to bring lens effects to vectorial objects in a way the user can experiment playing with settings like focal distance, diameter and position of the lens over the object (meaning the user can apply the effect over a part of the object, like a magnifying glass).

Synfig has a similar tool (example here).

Scribus also has this implemented in 1.3.5svn version --Prokoudine 11:31, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
