Object edges (new 19th Oct 2012)

Object Edge

This allows you to simply colour the edges and middle of an object to produce outlines or bevel effects.

(This, along with ‘alpha-threshold’ will be replacing ‘tweak transparency’ when I update my plug-in pack. Though I intend to keep the overly complicated ‘tweak transparency’ available in its own thread.)

It is now in my updated pack here:

Looks like...inner glow!

This should speed up planet creation a bit...

Thanks, red! <Downloads>

Hi pdnnoob,

I thought it was easier to write a new plugin, rather than try to explain 'tweak transparency' - which I barely understand myself!

This does most (not all) of what that can do, and much easier to use. ;)

Nice. As much as I like Drop Shadow...It's nice to have a choice. :smile:

 

I don't know how I could of compared object edge with drop shadow. :doh:

 

This plugin is easier than Tweak Transparency, but I had a fun time figuring out how to use Tweak, so I'm glad that you are keeping it.

I think I'm doing something wrong... I can't get the outline to show up, the only thing that changes is the inner colour.   I am trying to add an outline to a custom text that I hand drew.  Is that a problem?  I really need an outline on it.

Hi there StekOks - welcome to the forum.

 

Your text needs to be on a transparent layer in order for the plugin to find the edges.  See the sample images are surrounded by the grey and white checkerboard pattern - this denotes transparency.

 

Try removing the background (Magic Wand + click on background color & press Delete).
