How to make a Glassy Vase

50 posts in this topic

Step 15/16: I get a ring, not a cylinder. I triple checked the settings. Help?

Edit: Nevermind, I didnt reset the old values :P

csm725,

The Quad reshape matte plugin linked to in the tutorial

is now outdated and superseded by the DLL found here:

Thanks so much Sarkut!!

That helped a ton, I hadn't realized that I had v. 1 instead of v1.7

I'm having the same trouble but I tried what sarkut said and it's not helping. :( any ideas? (and I do have the most recent version of paint.net)

LibbyH,

I suggest that you post about this

in the Plugin Installation thread:

HOW TO INSTALL PLUGINS

Look in Utilities in the top menu of Paint.NET.

See if there are any plugin load error reports.

It would be helpful if you can post some screenshots.

One showing the contents of your Paint.NET/Effects

folder, with the full path showing in the Windows Explorer

window.

Another showing the Paint.NET Effects menu expanded.

Another showing any plugin error reports.

Post the screenshots here:

Alright, I'm not sure if I fully figured out the problem, because I am still getting a different box, but I did get it to work. Thanks Sarkut for the help. Thanks Yellowman for the great tut!

My first attempt.

First:

...and second:

My biggest problem is remembering which layer I'm supposed to be working on.

I am getting extremely frustrated. I'm doing the glass vase and in step 21......see screenshot

screenshot10h49m28s.jpg

This is what I get looking for it in distort......

screenshot10h48m26s.jpg

Tut says goto...Effects\Octagonal\quad reshape\matte......not to look in distort. I looked everywhere. I do not have it and the EOE.dll although newer does not contain this plugin...help lease.

you can use the Quadrilateral reshape instead, essentially the same thing

Not sure why I've got both :/

Effects\Octagonal\quad reshape\matte has been superseded

by Quadrilateral reshape since the tutorial was written.

Thanks for the quick reply. This thing has got me going bonkers. I love working with PDN. I don't want anything going wrong with it. Now to see if I can finish this.

Okay....here's the quad rilateral reshape. As you can see in the various screenshots the values entered had no effect on the image. Note the history with the head layer selected.

What am I doing wrong?

I think that you are working on the wrong layer.

Also, you need to use the mouse to reposition the

adjustment nodes in the corners of the plugin window.

Those numbers that you have changed apply

only to the Feather with radius option.

Thanks Sarkut and WelshBlue for helping.

Uvah , if you read step 21 carefully, it says this plugin has no values (settings), the only thing is the feather and that won't change the shape, but look closely at the preview window of the plugin you will see 4 knobs (4 tiny circles), one on each corner, click on any one of those knobs and move it inside the window ( see the screenshot in step 21 and follow the green arrows), I hope is this what asking for, and sorry for the confusion.

Very disappointing. Quadrilateral reshape does not work. Made no difference.Tried several values and nothing happened. No preview in the screen. Even with feathering...zero. This is what I got.

Don't I feel stupid now. Talk about something staring you in the face. I apologize for my rant. I see them now where as before I didn't take notice. Thanks for all the help and patience. I'm gonna go back and try again. Who knows...maybe I'll get it right this time...lol.

In typical Johnny fashion,I am of course 3 years late on this one but here it is.I'd like to point out for anyone who does this in the future, two things:1:you want to feather each step before merging.I did not and 2: instead of quadrilateral reshape(great plugin but does nothing here)use a plugin called Perspective.I didnt find it in the index.http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/16197-perspective-effect-v20-update-030510/vase.png

I really enjoyed doing this tutorial. Here is my effort including some personal tweaks to the color, base and the wood table is PdN-generated (not a photo paste-in).

Very nice outcome! I like the background too & the base with just the right amount of shadow etc. I really do like those subtle colours.
