Color Modulo texture (tool)

What's this?

This effect was a bonus in the bottom list of my pack of plugins without its post till now. It’s originally a tool I made to find out how a picture is distorted/transformed by over effects (useful with Shape 3D). This plugin can effectively assist the XY Coord effect.

 

This tool uses the color channels to create a variation (modulo) from the ranges of the sliders (mini – maxi). Red is a modulo on the x-axis, green is on the y-axis, blue is oblique. Sliders for channels are limited from 0 to 255.

 

The effect works better when the ranges are entire divisors to have regular sections. Example for an 800x600 image, good values are 200, 100, 50, 25, 10, and so on.

 

:Warning: This is a texture plugin. It replaces the selection (or fill the active layer if no selection).
