Using custom colors in the Clouds effect

Recommended Posts

I noticed the 'Clouds' effect is hard-coded to use the Primary and Secondary colors, but if it's invoked from another effect (like CodeLab), those colors default to Black and White.


Here's an easy solution you can use in CodeLab:

using (EffectEnvironmentParameters envirParameters = new EffectEnvironmentParameters(ColorBgra.Red, ColorBgra.Blue, 0, EnvironmentParameters.GetSelection(src.Bounds), src))
    cloudsEffect.EnvironmentParameters = envirParameters;


or if you have the setup in OnSetRenderInfo:

using (EffectEnvironmentParameters envirParameters = new EffectEnvironmentParameters(ColorBgra.Red, ColorBgra.Blue, 0, EnvironmentParameters.GetSelection(srcArgs.Bounds), srcArgs.Surface))
    cloudsEffect.EnvironmentParameters = envirParameters;


Brush width is set to 0 simply because the Clouds effect doesn't use it, so it doesn't matter.
