Motion Sharpen (ymd: 100714)

Motion Sharpen Distort Effect Plugin

What's this?

This is a plugin under Effect/Distort menu.

You know the motion blur effect, you should also know the Sharpen effect.

I've tryed here to create a Motion Sharpen effect. Instead blurring while moving, it will sharpen the image...

It's not perfect, but you could use it with text and title to give some relief...

Download it!

Plugin MotionSharpen.dll

The source is available with the plugins package!

How to install

Close Paint.net

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

The User interface

Angle:

...Set the motion direction.

Centered:

...The motion is balanced forward/backward (or only forward if unchecked).

Blend Mode:

...Normal: the effect is like the motion blur.

...Darken: the motion is applied and use the darkest pixels to trace on.

...Lighten: same but with lightest pixels.

...Sharpen: same but using an average calculation on the pixels.

Some examples:

if you use it on darken and set the blur low (around 2) it makes amazing beveled text!

I've thought of a few GUI designs if you decide to take this plugin further

I like the "drop down" gui best...and I think that the default blend mode should be set to sharpen. :D

This is basically PS's wind effect. Awesome!

If it is, then this is exactly what I need for a PS tut! Thanks!
