How It Works


 

The plugin is a photographic realization of a digital lowpass audio filter.


 

In Laymen's terms - its a buffer that resists change.  As you move the buffer over the image it collects a certain percentage of the image from the buffer's location and blends it into the buffer.Then the program deposits the content of the buffer. Elements of the background are therefore,dragged along into other areas of the background.

That's cheating! - I rely on 'lucky' words. :)

I find maths far more interesting if I can see what it's doing - I'm actually starting to understand some of the maths I was supposed to have learnt 30 odd years ago.

It's also good to see how much can be achieved with so few lines of code.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding this plugin but this seems like a very awkward way to smudge compared to mine. It's also painfully slow and doesn't work well with transparency.

edit: I do see one advantage to this control scheme in that you can see the fully layered image while you work, but that's irrelevant as long as it doesn't work correctly with alpha.

your absolutely right it was not intended to work with alpha. its basically turns your image into a fingerpainting canvas

I guess it's relevant now

 

Version 1.1 Uploaded - works correctly with Alpha Cahnnel

 

It's also painfully slow ...

I guess at this point it's best to explain:

Version 2.1 Uploaded. Code is much Faster - I didn't think I'd get it done so quickly.

 

Thanks Red, I just accelerated the code 10 fold using Lockbits

Checkout the Source Code - Intend on accelerating edge fader also.
