Moderators Note:

@toe_head2001 has recompiled this plugin to work under PDN 4. B)

You can find the new version here: Point Warp / Engorged Smudge for PDN 4

This plugin applies a `point warp' at a given location on the image. It's basically bulge [ :Bulge: ] but in the horizontal plane instead of the vertical.


The UI (v1.1) - uiwg1.png


I'm not truly sure of the uses for it, but it's interesting at best what can be done with it. Completely based on the Gaussian function and nothing more or less.
Made with the v3.20 UI.

DLL and source (both ZIP'd) attached.

Edit: After figuring out what I actually meant when I wrote the base of this code back in April, I made some small modifications to the UI and code that should look and work with more intuitivity. (v1.1 minor)

Nice :D

EDIT: The angle chooser is off by 90.

EDIT2: Unless I'm just completely misunderstanding how this works.

The angle chooser weirded me out myself. First I thought it was off by 90 so added 90, then it looks off by another 90... :| I'd work it out with math if I weren't lazy.

This is pretty neat. I always love getting new distortion effects. :)

One thing though, could you make it with an option to remove the original background? (colored red here for emphasis)

Or add a 'Reflect' option like Ed Harvey's Polar inversion+...

Done.

Edit: Just as an idea of how it works (No really technical terms, just words.):
