When Perspective is on the image is distorted as if it were 3D!!!! Menu: Effects->Distort The controls: V2.6.3 Forced Perspective Forced Perspective works by assuming that the short edge of the target polygon is closer to the vanishing point and the longer edge is closer to the viewer. Sometimes this may not be the case so 2.6.3 introduces the ability to adjust the amount of forced perspective to compensate..

The Dwarf Horde Rob Tauler (TechnoRobbo) - Code Lead, Design John Robbins (Red Ochre) - Graphics Lead, Design Scott Stringer (Ego Eram Reputo) - Documentation Lead, Design David Issel (BoltBait) - Beta Testing, Design Foreword The ShapeMaker plugin is a tool which facilitates the creation of SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) Shapes, Lines and Curves. The tool itself uses a WYSIWYG interface where Lines, Curves and entire Paths can be created and manipulated using just the mouse. Knowledge of the complex SVG structure is not required. ShapeMaker will create all that complex stuff for you and generate the Shape, code, or a complete reusable file. Why did we write this plugin? We wanted to create an easy-to-use click-and-drag interface which could create custom Shapes that itself could reuse via the new Shapes tool. That's right. 4.0.6+ allows the user to add their own Shapes to the Shapes tool set. Not only can ShapeMaker Shapes be reused, the valid SVG generated can be pasted into HTML documents for modern browsers to render. We hope you like ShapeMaker! Video Tutorials

  22. MODERATORS NOTE: this plugin has been superseded by a newer version: The Plugin Browser by The Dwarf Horde Rob Tauler, John Robbins, David Issel & Scott Stringer aka TechnoRobbo, Red Ochre, BoltBait and Ego Eram Reputo Version 1.0.4.+ The Plugin Browser plugin was designed to make plugins easier to locate and identify, especially when a large collection of plugins is installed. The Plugin Browser plugin does this by allowing the User to search alphabetically by plugin name, keyword(s), author or menu location. Included in these searches are the Plugin Title and Description. Once you find a plugin, you can run it right from inside of the Plugin Browser. Plugin Browser plugin gives the User the ability to Bookmark their favorite plugins and add their comments to bookmarked plugins so they can identify it and make notes about its use. As well as being a search tool, the Plugin Browser is capable of displaying an embedded image which we call the Preview Image. The idea of the Preview Image is to give the User a visual clue to the plugin’s function. In most cases the Preview Image will be an example of the effect or adjustment. The Plugin Browser will also suggest plugins that you don't have but may want to download. Once a month the Plugin Browser connects to the forum and downloads a copy of the Plugin Index. This file is used to match keyword searches against plugins by parsing the plugin descriptions from the Index. You will receive a prompt before the download goes ahead.
