Popular Post BoltBait Posted November 21, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted November 21, 2022 BoltBait GPU Accelerated Plugin Pack (for Paint.NET v5.0+) NOTE: If you're looking for my plugin pack for Paint.NET v4.3.12, go here, or Paint.NET v3.5.11, go here. If you're in here downloading the 5.0 version of Paint.NET, you're probably familiar with my plugin pack. I have spent the better part of the last 6 months rewriting most of my plugins from scratch... taking advantage of all the new toys @Rick Brewster has given us plugin authors in Paint.NET v5.0. He has completely rewritten the Effect system within Paint.NET v5.0 (Don't worry, all your favorite classic effects will still work.) adding new capabilities for the IndirectUI system and providing access to the GPU so that our effects can run VERY fast! Spoiler Here is a short list of things @Rick Brewster has enabled in Paint.NET v5.0: Effects can now access the GPU. Effects can have tabs in the UI. Tabs can contain tab sets. You can have more than one tab set. You can have controls outside of tab sets. Plugin authors can hide the dividing line between controls when using IndirectUI. Plugins can now read other layers within your document (although you can still only write to the selected layer). Plugins can read a fully merged image of your document (all layers merged together). Plugins can read the image metadata. Plugins have access to layer names, the current layer, and document/layer metadata. Plugins can write OUTSIDE of the current selection (although you can still only write to the selected layer). IndirectUI now has a comment control which does nothing except allow you to place text between controls. Drop-Down IndirectUI controls can now place text in front of the drop-down list. More tutorials on how to implement these things in your own plugins will be written over the coming months. What's New: I have rewritten more than 25 of my plugins so that they will now be GPU accelerated! While I was in there, I also added cool new features. Be sure to check your favorite plugin!

This pack also includes 57 shapes and 2 palettes. These are the ones I use. *Please post a vote for which of my "classic" effects you'd like to see GPU accelerated next. Screenshots of Various Effects: Outline Selection and Outline Object got some new features and the outlines look MUCH better than previous versions. Check out some of these new features: Bevel now has a shadow angle free choice and a hard edge option. Calendar Creator now has holiday highlighting. Enter your favorite birthdays! Many of my plugins utilize tabs for making the UI much smaller than before. For example, Creative Text Pro separates the UI into 4 basic functions: The Photo > Level Horizon effect utilizes 2 tabs, one for marking the horizon and one for finalizing your image: Some old favorites have been rewritten for GPU acceleration: Enjoy! Also, for you luddites that refuse to use the installer, here's a zip file with all the DLL's in it: BoltBaitPack67DLLs.zip How to install Paint.NET plugins. NO SHAPES FOR YOU!
