Hosting filter factory plugins

I am trying to host filter factory plugins in my application.

Is there any example code/libraries to load/parse filter factory plugins?
Other than the source code to the gimp's filter factory host that is too gimp specific.

I assume it is easier to load/use filter factory plugins than to implement a full photoshop plugin host.

You can also have a look at FilterFoundry ( which is open source. It would be nice if you could post something on this forum when your application is ready.

Doesn't Michael Johannhanwahr have a library that is used for filter factory support in IrfanView for instance?

Yes, but it is not open source. But maybe you can convince him to let you use his DLL.
