I am already using it from the ages of Bibble5.
Make a rectangle over let's say top third of the image, increase feather drammatically.
And you have it. On that layer you can darken the image, change white balance, apply stronger (or weaker) denoise in comparison to the rest of the image.
Bibble 5 allowed large feathers, you could also go beyond a limit by typing the number.
Unfortunately with ASP you cannot type custom number.
This way I officially ask developers to make looser restrictriction on feather size. I think it should be dependant on RAW image dimensions.
Maximum feather limit - One half of image width - will be perfect, it will be enough on every graduated filter.
But please, if it is too much, do not restrict it more than one third of the image width. But this will be less than ideal, and smaller limits than 1/3 will make ASP unsuitable for "graduated editing". One half would be ideal. Developers, please consult it with anybody who is using graduated ND filters - either digital or real.
Current state is just so-so D7000, but will be desperately little on 36MP D800 image.
Please, consider it. I am sure it will be critical for other users as well, many of us stayed with Bibble5/ASP because of perfect layer possibilities.
