Spirograph Effect Plugin
Posted Image

What's this?
This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Render.
I've made based on a small Csharp.Net program I've found here:
http://www.csharpfr....e.aspx?ID=40720
I feel the name isn't correct, but I can't find any other that suites better!
It will draw alternated centered polygons and rotate/reduce at each of them.
It uses the Primary and Secondary colors.

Download the DLL
Plugin SpiroGraph.dll
Posted ImageHere is the DLLPosted Image

The source is available with the plugins package!
http://forums.getpai...?showtopic=7186

How to install?
Close Paint.net
Unzip and place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects

The User interface
Posted Image
Angles (3,25,dft=5):
__Here you give the quantity of angles (vertices) for the polygons.

Density (2, 99,dft=5):
__This is the density of polygons to draw.

Depth (2, 99,dft=50):
__You decide here the depth level of your graph.

Zoom (1,300,dft=98 ):
__Allows you to reduce/increase the whole graph. 100% represent the size of the image.

Gradient (1,300,dft=100 ):
__Allows you to reduce/increase the wide of the gradient. Small value will create a repeating 'hard' gradient. High value will give a smooth gradient near monochrome. 100% represent a 'normal' gradient.

Rotation (-180,180,dft=0):
__You could rotate the whole graph if you choose here an angle of rotation.

Lines:
__Draws the lines using the Pen Brush Width setting. It uses the Primary and Secondary colors.

Lines switched color:
__As the previous option but the Primary and Secondary colors are switched.

Black & White lines:
__Need one of the previous lines option to be checked. Use Black & white instead the Primary and Secondary colors for the lines.

Filled with solid color:
__It uses the Primary and Secondary colors to fill the polygons.

Filled with gradient:
__It uses the Primary and Secondary colors to fill the polygons with a linear gradient.

Fit rectangle size:
__Resize the polygons to fit the size of the image.

How about "Spiral Layered Paper Trippiness"?

"Yeah, whatever, David, you're dumb..."

Anyway, I LIKE! :-) Keep 'em coming, MadJik.

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Look at the middle of the image. Now move your head closer, then further.
The twisted triangles look like they're turning.

Myrddin's bumper book of useless information has this to say about MS Paint:
In the times of 16-bit graphics, it was revealed in a public survey that people disliked names which conveyed true purpose, therefore it was decided to change (albeit slightly) the names of developing products to something more 'consumer-friendly' and shroud users in a blissful bubble, hence Pain to Paint and Write to Word (1989 Word is clearly capable of showing more than one 'word').


Please don't take this seriously, it is fictitious and does not relate to Microsoft products then or now and is not meant to cause offence or induce legal actions.
