Now all we need is anti-aliased selections and a built-in custom brush tool! That means I can ditch photoshop when v4 is released :D

I've just fixed a fun little bug that prevents you from using this plugin more than once in a session (oops) so anyone who downloaded before now might want to download it again.

I like it better this way. They tended to get lost in the image when AAd. Maybe I just need new glasses.

Amazing! I've been looking for this exact effect in order to make 3d animated flags. Getting the image to distort cleanly isn't that easy though. Right on! :D

Fair 'nuff. It's difficult, if not impossible, to find a color or a blend op (e.g. xor) that works with all backgrounds.

It may help the visibility issue if you put white dots in the center of each nub

Hi Pyro

I have been playing around with it for some time now, (WOW) .
but i have to ask for some small things for you to add which are missing (from my point of view).
I don't know how to explain it, so I'll just try :-) hopefully you would pick
what i mean.

I have made a grid of 10x10, and made my warps where and how i wanted them.
now I wanted to make more small changes/adjusments but in a higher grid of 20x20.
In order to do it i must 1st apply the effect to my picture then go back to the effect
with the 20x20 grid.
if i don't apply then changing the grid would erase all the work i did in 10x10 :-(
what is missing from my point of view is.
1. a question box asking are you sure ? before one change the grid and lose its long work.
(what happened to me :-( i pressed the increase grid size button )
2. the option to undo (at least the last change)
3. the ability to apply the current warp effect ONLY to the picture/image in the effect box, enabling the user to continue
warping with a new/same grid over the last warp effect.
THEN when the user is done with all his warping apply the effect to the original image in the PDN.

I hope that you understood me , my English is not the best and so is my age :-)

thank you
Avi
p.s.
The number 3 request is because when I work I have a vision and continuous work in my age keeps me from forgetting
what i want and keeps my line of work flowing the right way.
applying the effect in one grid and getting back to the effect with a new grid makes me forget what i wanted to do .
but i think that in the global people would be happy to be able to warp with as many grids they want
until they are happy with the results and only then apply it to the picture.

thank you and continue to do great plugins that makes us happy :-)
Avi

Hi Pyro

You haven't comment at all on my lst post, I hope you would say what you think good/bad idea's :-)
since I keep forgetting to press OK before the need to change the grid. I guess I would
learn it some time, but till then i'll be happy if you can help atleast with a popup saying are you sure
before change the grid :-).

Also I was wondering with another thing .
would it be possible to add the option to select a number of "grid dots" and move then together ?
the reason for this is saving the need to make the "same change" in a number of places.
doing it one by one never gets the same results .
for example
1. i have a diagonal line and i want to make some teeth to it like a saw, doing it one by one
takes longer , and each tooth is not the same as the other.
2. I'm making some picture for animation (face image), and i need to make two areas in the image
around the eyes to look like a star is opening, (like morphing) but the changes need to be identical.
if i was able to select the two DOTS (say one above/around each eye) i would be able to move both
then same amount giving me the results i need.
doing them one by one around the eyes , would give me two different effects to around each eye.
3. working in high grid , and selecting a number of dots that aligned with a curve in the image
(like an eyebrow) would enable me to create the effect and keep the curved line in the image.

I hope I wasn't out of line asking for this too ;-)
please let me know what you think of it.
and if you ever plan to make such additions ?

thank you
Avi
p.s.
I'll be happy to hear others too :-)
p.s.2
You got me hooked on this plugin ;-)
