Rainbow Twist Colors (ymd:100726)

13 posts in this topic

Rainbow twist Colors Effect Plugin

What's this?

This effect is an ®evolution of the RainbowRadial.cs provided with the CodeLab.

This is quite similar to the Radial Colors

How does it works?

The effect uses the formulas based on sinusoid curves to define and mix in a rainbow twist the three basic color Red, Green, Blue.

The User interface

This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Texture.

EDIT: I've created a similar plugin but with less options and so a shorter UI

A scrollbar appears if the UI is too long for your screen :P

...X/Y Factor: quantity of periods on X/Y axis.

...Angles: Set the angle reference per color.

...X/Y offset of the center: as it says...

...Reverse the rotation for R/G/B: as it says, again...

...Amount of R/G/B: adjust the weight per color.

...Ratio: This ratio affects the overall period: 100=1 period.

...Limit level for the lines: When the formulas give a result below the limit, the value used for the color is the amount from the slider. This makes a cut in the colored gradients.

...Lines background: Off, change the alpha value instead the color if the formulas give a result below the limit level.

Download the DLL

Plugin RainbowTwist.dll

The source is available with the plugins package!

How to install?

Close Paint.net

Unzip and place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects

Enjoy the colors!

Just a sugestion, cause your plugin window is waaaay to tall, on the gui maker move half the height to the side, so that it would be a large window instead of a tall one...

other than that this plugin is very good... Nice work :mtdew::mtdew:

Have you even tried it? If you have, you'd know that it has a scrollbar. PdN's new property-based effect system doesn't allow for that level of control over your dialog boxes.

That is an enormous user interface ... :shock: ... isn't there some way to simplify it and still keep the important functionality?

This should help with the long UI a bit.

Am I missing some existing functionnality to reduce this UI using IndirectUI?

It will be a huge work to rewrite it with a window form...

aren't you using Visual Studio? cause the gui editor does allow re-arrange of the window.

@pyro: come on man... do you really think I didn't try it? I do KNOW that it has a scroll bar, even MadJik told me that when I mentioned the window hugeness...

Don't bite... I'll bite back :D

Yes I am using VS2008 express, but without the gui editor!

That's the great advantage with this version of paint.net and the IndirectUI features.

As Pyro said "PdN's new property-based effect system doesn't allow for that level of control over your dialog boxes."

It will be for a next version... :roll:

For now you could use the short UI version... See first post!

I'm quite fine with the long one, I do have a nice monitor. I was just thinking globally, but whatever, if the IndirectUI doesn't allow that's as much as you can do and I'm fine with it...

And one more thing how's VS2008 doing? Is it better than 2007 (obviously :D)
