A way to make some fancy drops!

__________________________________________

About this tutorial:

I was (again) playing with some plugins when it starts to "rain" some fancy drops and droplets...

 

To obtain big drop you should use a large canvas size (ie: 4000x3000)

 

:Warning: This method requires CPU usage!

 

For this tut I will use 800x600 so I could post some "work in progress" and screen shots.

A rectangular image will give 2 drops. A square image will give 4 drops.

Required plugins:

Inside-out (Ed Harvey) :  https://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/18811-ed-harvey-effects-v-35-2012-02-13/

Shape3D (MKT) : https://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/18968-shape3d-2007-08-24/

Let's start with a white image:

01. :FileNew: Create a new rectangular image (big size is better). For this tutorial I'm using 800x600 px.

02. :plugin:  Start directly with the Shape 3D (Menu effects/renders) and create a sphere.

- 1.Set the scaling to 1.35.

- 2.Set the texture to full map.

- 3.Set the light position x:0 y:0.50 z:1.

- 4.Set the anti aliasing ON, level 1.

03. :PolarInversion: Then Menu Effects/Distort and apply a polar inversion (all at default).

04. :Plugin: Menu Effects/Distort and run Inside-out effect. No parameter here!

05. :RectangleSelectTool: Select the drop you need in a rectangle and crop the image.

Let's make it more difficult:

06. :FileNew: Create a new rectangular image.

 

07. :PluginIndicator: Menu Effects/Advanced Open the script lab.

 

08. For each 3 steps 02-04 redo in the script lab with the same settings.

- 1.Choose the effect in the list.

- 2.Click to add the effect.

- 3.Set the parameters (if needed).

- 4.Save the script...

(this is my scriptlab file: http://img9.xooimage.com/files/6/3/2/dr ... c781b4.sls )

 

09. :LayersAddNewLayer: Add a new layer. Fill it with Cyan (#00FFFF).

 

10. :PluginIndicator: Menu Effects/Advanced Open the script lab. You should have the last script used ready.

- 3.Change only the scaling and substract 0.07

- 1.Change the color for a darker blue (#0000FF, #0000BB, #000099, #000077, #000044)

- 2.Change the scaling and substract 0.07 each time (1.21, 1.14, 1.07, 1.00, 0.93, 0.86)

Let's go ahead playing:

- Try with a picture instead a unique color.

- Try with the scaling in the shape3d with 2.0 and more...

- Try with other setting (rotation, light position, light level, etc...)

- Try to run then fill the background, then run again and again...

Great tut madjik.

True that. Haha, I'm slow today, track practice was brutal. Yeah I ran out and got a different keyboard, I'll post my IMG tags with my results as soon as photobucket comes up. I must need to disable Windows Firewall Internet Protection, it's blocking photobucket and the exception's already placed. One minute.
