Conduit for Flash Pixel Bender offers a fully visual

pro video apps like After Effects and Final Cut Pro. All Conduit
versions are compatible, so you can easily share effects between
platforms and applications.
Conduit for Flash Pixel Bender exports Flash-ready Pixel
Bender bytecode (.PBJ) files self-sufficiently, i.e. you don't need
to have Adobe Pixel Bender Toolkit or the Flex SDK installed.

the price point yet).
Unfortunately the current beta release is Mac OS X only. The
Windows version will be available later this month. (Sorry to keep
