DotMatrix

11 posts in this topic

This is similar to other plugins out there (since there are about 8 million of them on this site)
Curtis' Dots, for one... but that one doesn't use path gradients.
Anyway it's my first plugin using GDI+ (thanks to Red ochre for pointing me in that direction)
and done entirely in CodeLab, my favorite 'plugin'.

 

...and not much to do with dot-matrix printers, if anyone remembers them...

(Found under Stylize)

 

User Interface:

 

2016-11-30%2015_15_19-NomBots%20DotMatri

 

Dot Diameter: size of the dots (very low diameters can produce tapestry-like effects)
Background Color: fills the background, default black.
Grad Percent: gradation amount
Light Direction: drag the cross to direction light will come from.  
Use Path Gradient: use a path brush rather than a linear brush.
The following controls apply only to the path brush:
Highlight Width: width of the highlight area
Highlight Height: height of the highlight area
Point: Sharpness of the highlight
Spread: this affects the blend curve
Light Distance: how far the light is from the canvas (no effect if light direction is in center)

Good job.

Any special reason you used "Grad Percent" in the UI, instead of "Gradation Percent"?  It could confuse some people, as 'Grad' can be an abbreviation for a few things.

 

Reminds me that I need to finish my Lite-Brite plugin I started many months ago.

Thanks everyone

@toe_head2001, no good reason, I will change it ... and I'll try to remember to use clearer names for controls.

and totally forgot about the Lite-Brite!
