Outline 1.0: Precise, smooth outlines matching source quality (April 22, 2021)

Recommended Posts

Adds precise outlines to objects using a dilation technique.

Effects > Object > Outline



This plugin creates smooth, rounded outlines by sampling antialiased edges and replicating them outside a shape. It uses a technique similar to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dilation_(morphology)dilation, opposite of my Erode plugin. Because this outline method only uses the existing edge to create new edges, an input image with high quality shape edges (such as rendered text) will produce high quality outlines. The dilation method works best with rounded edges, as there is less pixel information at sharp convex corners.
