TR's FreeWarp V1.9.2 (Jan. 1, 2016)

28 posts in this topic

TechnoRobbo's FreeWarp v1.9.2

 

TR’s FreeWarp (short for TechnoRobbo’s Freestyle Warp) was designed for the artist to intuitively reshape an image by stretching it’s detail.

 

The math employed was a built from the ground up as deliberate departure from Beier-Neely’s Algorithm and the standard mesh warp, Allowing the stretching to be arbitrary.

 

 

Version 1.92 adds AutoSave and more internal stuff.

Version 1.91 adds an Opacity adjustment and some internal stuff

Version 1.9 adds a Warp Curvature adjustment and preview

Version 1.8 Fixes Undo

Version 1.7.1 Cursor Scaling Fix.

Version 1.7 warping within selections.

Version 1.6 adds functionality and speed

Version 1.5 Re-invents the user interface

Version 1.2 Puts back missing Label

Version 1.1 Fine Location Control Added

How it Works

 

The Algorithm has 2 distinct parts:
 


1. Distort the Image

2. Localize Warping

 
..and 3 distinct parameters.
 

1. The Origin – where the warp begins

2. The Target – where the warp ends

3. The Minimum Warp Size – the size of the warped area

 
(If you continue to stretch the image beyond this size the algorithm adjusts this parameter)
 

Distort the Image

Stretching the image is achieved by dividing the image into parts. The Stretched Side and the Compressed Side. The demarcation point is the Target point. Anything on the Origin side of the Target it stretched from the image border – anything on the opposite side is compressed towards the image border.
 
In the Source Code this is labeled “//reverse mapping”.
 


Localizing the Warp

Localizing control of the warp is a simple matter of finding the distance of a pixel to the imaginary line segment created by the Origin Point and the Target Point.
 
In the Source Code this is the “distance” function.
 
The distance is normalized by diving it with the Minimum Warp Size. If the distance between Origin and Target (Pythagorean Theorem) exceeds the Minimum Warp Size the distance is used.
 
Normalizing results (d) is a value between 0 and 1 that is used as the control in a linear interpolation between the Source pixel (uu,vv) and the Target Pixel (x,y).
 


uu = d * x + uu - uu * d;

vv = d * y + vv - vv * d;

 
I hope I shed some light on the code for the programmers – I’m sorry if I bored the rest.

The knowledge of the math plus a good idea of composition. This combination is great.

Thanks TR for some nice plugins.

Great fun. Thanks for the continued work :)

I started with this on a separate layer

Used Freewarp / Duplicated the result / ran drop shadow and then conditional hue / saturation, played with blend modes, added your scatter effect and got this :)

Updated Version 1.1  - adds a Fine Location Control for cursor

 

David & Nurse- Thank You

 

 

 

Red Ochre -I didn't know Obama was half pixie!  :lol:

 

Red - He is , I've seen his Birth Certificate

 

 

Midora - 

It's not fair. I'm missing the german 'Mutti'.

I think someone already warped her...

My Apologies the "Hold Control to Warp" disappeared from last version. I put it back.

(Here's a tip keep holding Control until you save)

 

I've also added a "How It Works" section to the Original Post to make up for my lack of commentary in the sourcs code.
