This is not a new idea, ...

 

But the new realization. Very interestingly and fascinatingly!

Thank you Remake! :)

Thanks Max - my Vista computer (with VS 2010) is still working, so compiling against 3.5NET wasn't too painful. ;) (IOU 1)

Cool (and hot) Image Eli! - many thanks for posting it. B)

Good work on the chair TR! (thanks for posting the image and the settings). B)
Your rotate/zoom method for the chair is more technically accurate but that image should give the user a good idea of what the recovered chair would look like.

(Spent all my reps for today so awaiting 'bank of Pdn' quantative easing! :D, IOU +1)

Hi Red.

Just tried to follow the screenshot (taxt mask) Can you explain how you made the text coloured ?  I coppied the text layer (lower layer) to the clipboard (as shown) unticked the middle layer (the colour) and then ran clip displace on the upper text layer and got nothing. :(

 

Also if trying to distort an image with something on the clipboard, the shading method slider has no effect, neither does the Opacity to use slider. 

I'm pretty sure I am getting more stupid as I get older, but, this plugin has me lost completely.

Hello nitenurse79, I also followed the steps and the settings and all I got was black text. I think REd meant to show that the ticked "Current layer" was the same as  the unticked layer "Currrent layer" before the effect was applied. 

 

Also if you run TR's Contour Filler on the text before copying it to the clipboard you get a pretty good color effect.

Hi Eli - I have tried that, but the lower layer is the one coppied to the clipboard, not the middle one, I will have to try again another time, thanks all the same.

Don't be too hard on yourself, I can't get it to play either, no matter what slider I move, I get nothing apart from warped black text.

My fault nitenurse - I should have used 2 screenshots - will try to recreate and post more screenshots.
Eli got what I was trying to show.
Sorry Sasha and Seerose. Try the flag example. Download the flag and the grey texture and have them as two layers in Paint.net.
Copy the grey layer then move to the flag layer and run the effect.

I'm not very good at tutorials I'm afraid. :(

Looks complicated at times, but I did create a bit of abstract art with it. Good fun, thanks Redochre :)

Thanks for posting the image Oceana. (+1 'in the post'). ;)

I've added more instructions on how to use as a mask at the top but will put them here too.

1.

2. Create a new layer and write some text or use an object or shape.

3. Add some shading to the text, either use my 'Object Edge' plugin

... or use TR's Contour Filler.

4.Now Copy the whole text layer. Turn off the text layer's visibility and make sure you are on the bottom (coloured) layer.

Run the Clip Displace plugin.

Portugal? (I'm useless at identifying flags even with the help of the internet  ;) )

Yes, Portugal. I was born there and we moved to the USA when I was 5 years old.

Thanks for adding the additional screenshots Red. I created my own texture to use because for some reason, the non moveable gradients galore (post #17 Picture #1 example) is not in your plugin pack. Anyway, here is one, thank you again :)

Success! Glad the screenshots helped. Cool result too, thanks for posting it. B) (IOU +1)

 

Regarding Gradients Galore: the newest version (as in the screenshots) is not in my pack (yet) - sorry. It  is in the Gradients Galore thread here

http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/24769-gradients-galore-major-update-1772015/

And it's still move-able. :)

 

Sorry for the confusion. Will try to update my pack when I get time. ;)

A very interesting plugin, but I think it would be even better if it had a supersampling antialias option. Nitenurse's example would look ever so much better, I think.
