Photoshop: Add the Turbulent Displace filter from After Effects to Photoshop

For high-end retouching purposes computer generated artwork usually looks too clean. A great way to add variation to gradients, edges etc. is to apply a turbulent displace filter like the one that is implemented in After Effects. It would be great to have access to such a filter in Photoshop. Here is a quick example:

Besides adding variation, imagine all the creative effects you can achieve with that ...

Try the 'Glass' filter in the filter gallery under 'Distort'. That gives a quite similar effect if you play with the settings.

Thanks for your help, but unfortunately this is not what I want. I know there are a bunch of different filters in the Filter Gallery that can achieve somewhat similar results – especially if there are combined in some creative ways. But it's not easily possible to create something like in the After Effects example below and even have control over the appearance.



I really think this would be a useful addition to the existing filters as it would allow you to create effects like fire, smoke, dust, wrinkles etc. in much more natural way than – let's say – the clouds filter ...

I was looking for the same thing on photoshop many months ago, it would be great for them to add it in instead of having to export the images to after effects and then save them and put them back into photoshop

Yes, this is especially true when dealing with CMYK documents. There is just no After Effects workflow available for that scenario.
