Thank you, toe_head! I'm sure I'll find a use for this... ;)        :beer:  :pizza:

 

 

 

Just what I needed, Thank you!

 

Space, the final frontier...

 

 

Eli, Beam me up!!   :)       (I'm a huge Trekkie...)

Here's the plugin compiled for the old PdN: Spoked Wheel 1.1 for PdN 3.5.11.zip

 

This may be a far-fetched application, but I think this is good for creating chopped trees, or maybe circular woody mazes. Of course the spoked wheel was just the starting point after which I had to do a couple additional things, but anyway, the spoked wheel took part and that's what counts :) Here are two quickies whose main objects I believe resemble chopped trees (maybe the first one looks more like a circular maze JC_thinking.gif). Perhaps the textures can be improved.

 

Scene 1:

 

Spoked_Wheel_Chopped_Tree_Trunk_scene_1.
 

Scene 2:

 

Spoked_Wheel_Chopped_Tree_Trunk_scene_2.

would it be possible to have more spokes?  Something like 32. :)  Thanks! 

 

There is no technical limitation, so if you want 32, just edit the source file.

 

Change this from:

IntSliderControl Amount1 = 5; // [3,20] Spokes

to this:

IntSliderControl Amount1 = 5; // [3,32] Spokes

Sorry, there's no easy way to do that.

Agreed, there is actually a theoretical way I know how to do it. But, it requires warping image assuming distance from center is y and square borders as x, then create linear stroke, and transform it back where x axis is x and y axis is y. But, that is not easy at all.

 

Actually maybe polar transformation would be easier to code in. A lot easier in fact.

The thing is that it's not consistent within the spokes. That's why I suggest polar transform. Generate the outlines within pre-transform vector, then polar transform right back. But, I'm not so qualified to know c# limitation in context of paint.net, but this is indeed possible within g'mic-qt and c++ within other programs.
