I have attempted to work with the Paint.NET G'MIC plugin by null54 using the 3D Image Object of the Rendering option to create a cube using a tile that I made as its surface. The softeware shows an image of the desired object, but when I click on Apply or OK, the plugin closes and no image was created.

However, it can't output multiple layers, right?

 

Correct.

That filter is working for me.

The only issue is that the new image is larger than the Paint.NET canvas, so the bottom of the cube is cropped.

The issue for HyRez, is he had the incorrect settings in Input/Output layers for this particular effect.

Unfortunately there are other issues as well as exampled in my Rubic's Cube render.

 

Also, Is there a reason you used the 32-bit version as apposed to the 64-bit? This has memory issues on some effects, unles it's because I'm running it in a VM.

The dummy Paint.NET effect dialog no longer shows when the Qt dialog is closed.
The G'MIC executable is now run on a background thread, this stops the Paint.NET window from freezing while G'MIC is running.

Fixed an issue with the clipboard when running as a repeat effect.

File version updated to 1.1.0.

There's ways to make filters for G'MIC. You can edit .g'mic file with Kate text editor and see codes for every single filters on G'MIC. You can even reuse part of filters as part of a new filter.

 

Reference https://gmic.eu/reference.shtml

 

There's also a PDF file with code examples. Mind you, it is over 400 pages.

I have tried and have commented about my attempt to apply your recent suggestion

Hi, I work with hi resolution, too. So, like you, I can't use it, either. Total huge bummer. I work in professional printing dpi, which is usually 300dpi, not 96. I'm having a few issues with other plugins doing barely noticeable effects with some of the plugins, too, using 300 dpi. Sometimes it helps to duplicate the process repeatedly, or the layer, repeatedly. Not always, or it kind-of does, but some of the time not how it would show up in 96 dpi. PDN is fantastic for 96 and 120 dpi work. I'm still using PDN for some other things it works fantastic with, so, that's a good thing. It's forced me to use the alternative software, which I genuinely loath - because it's so bloated but it's also free, so I shouldn't be so ungrateful, but I've gotten pretty good at that one, too. Still, I'd love to just stay with PDN if I can and when I can. PDN still does a great deal. It's my first go to. From there, I give it my best and anyone reading this, make no mistake, PDN is still incredible and has incredible features to use for 300 dpi.

@ScrapbookWithPDN,

 

I have been a user of Paint.NET for 10 years and I love it! Back in 2010 I bought the Academic  version of the Adobe Creative Suite 5 because teachers got an 85% discount. Learning Photoshop took an lot of hours. Today I use Paint.NET for most of my graphics works. It has most of the tools I need and with the Effects and File Type plugins; I can handle most of my creation and editing requirements.

 

I have an assortment of graphic creation and editing apps and I don't hesitate to use them with in the execution of a single project. Paint.NET does not have to do everything! It does many great things for a price that is unbeatable!
