Gravity (ymd:100714)

Gravity Effect Plugin

gravity0.jpg

What's this?

This is a plugin under Effect/Distort menu.

The function of this effect is to group the pixels as if they are sand.

Every pixel can't stand up if the pixel above is transparent and falls till it meets a solid pixel (non transparent).

You could place the gravity on each side of the image.

Download it!

Plugin Gravity.dll

ar.pngHere is the DLLal.png

The source is available with the plugins package!

How to install

Close Paint.net

Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects

The User interface

ui.png

Choose the direction of the gravity:

...left,

...right,

...up,

...down or

...null.

Choose to replace the transparency with:

...Transparent

...Primary color

...Secondary color

...Original image

Chanels level to apply gravity:

Set the level value per channel to considere as empty pixel.

If the pixel color correspond to the criteria for ALL the channels then it is considered as an empty pixel.

To desactivate a test for a channel, set its value to -1.

Red, Green, Blue have the same amount:

If checked the red slider is used to define the value for all colors sliders.

Reverse the test:

Pixel considered as empty is now assumed filled and vice-versa.

Erase similar lines/columns:

I made this to reduce some screenshots. If two (or more) lines are equals then only one is copied.

It works only for lines or columns, not the both at the same time.

Some examples:

You know those little ornaments that are made with multiple colors of sand or rice?

Yeah, made one with that plugin. Nice job, never would've thought of this. Five bucks says that Ash does something that blows it out of the water by the 7th.

I've updated my Real Car -> Toy Car Conversion tutorial to include using this plugin at the final stage, to pull all the separate pieces back together.

Excellent job, Madjik.

Your download was corrupted. Try downloading again. If it still no worky, you might want to try a download manager.

I am having trouble with this. My UI has three more sliders and none of them do anything. I am confused.

You need to have some transparent pixels to use this effect.

If you want to use a color channel, you should increase (>200) or disable (-1) the alpha channel...
