The Random Effect Image Game!

Recommended Posts

okay, here is how it works.

start with: Render> and one of the following: gradient bars, bars, or one of the other render effects.

DOWNLOAD PYROCHILDS PLUGIN PACK! IT HAS RANDOM EFFECT!

then, do random effect at default settings (the ones it gives you)

repeat as many times as you want, using only random effect.

REMEMBER!: do not press ctrl+F when repeating random effect. it only repeats the previous effect, not makes a new random. remember to always go into your menu, random effect.

also: if your random effect wants to do a render effect that changes your image to something (eg. gradient bars), dont do it, close the effect, and start the random effect again.

looking forward to seeing what you guys get!

Well that was really strange. After doing 50 random effects, I ended up with a white background with a black oval. Most of the time the random effect produced another render that overwrote the last one. I did however get these at one point along the way.

Someday maybe I'll learn when enough is enough.

This is a good idea, but i suggest that the game sort of follows how the "Image Add-on" game works, so each person takes the image before and applies random effect to it (possibly able to customize settings) and post. And so on.

This one's about 3 steps after the previous.

You can just click "Randomize Effect" at the top left.

Here is another result I liked.

Thanks for thinking of this game cazaron, it has given me heaps of ideas for drawing things. By putting some wierd effects together you can get some very unexpected results. I just wish I could remember which effects made the above image, it has lots of potential. :D

(ps If random effects chose a render which overwrote only part of the image (say like polygon) I would use it. This is what gave some of my best results, and is hopefully within the rules.)

if it doesnt remove the entire image, then it fits within the rules. its only if it replaces your entire image.

:Help: Random effect is the plugin to use. It is part of Pyrochild's plugin pack (all bow to Pyrochild) and appears at the bottom of your effects menu when loaded. Carazon, it might be worth mentioning this in your opening post.

BTW, I like the triangle effect UGA.

Lol I've been using the plugin the whole time, I was just confused because the rules say to use random effects with default settings and the plugin uses random settings.

@pop: thanks, I put a lot of hard work into it :wink:
