Add-on and Upgrade Ideas


Recommended Posts

Well, I don't really know where to put this post, (First time posting), but what I can say I would like a programmer to try at least one of my ideas

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I have tried to find two things that is connected to "FONTS"

1- Font creator pluggin: Basicaly it should be simple, in english to start with, well it starts out by creating layers with a name (Alphabectical [low and high case], numbers, ponctuation, and others.), which is about 96 layers. The canvas size will be at font scale. And save file will be *.font

The idea is to create and personnalise your fonts without buying the program, or try a cheap worthless trial that won't save your fonts.

2- Font randomizer (Fun Text): A pluggin that can be fun, as well as artistic. Like cutting randoms letters from newspaper with different fonts to make your text.

To add to this, when activated, it lets you choose the fonts that you want and don't. Because not everybody will understand "wedding" fonts.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I tried a good animation pluggin but just to be sure there are some details I wanted to add:

transparent stays transparent, and white stays white and not the other way around.

Animation Fusion: Except to go by step by step, someting that can convert a layer to animation exept fixed. So putting a gif image onto a layer will still animate. Or pdn file 1 into page (replaces layer), of pdn file 2.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Morph: Simple actually by using points, and layers. Point 1 Layer 1 to Point 1 Layer 2. Type of morph, deformation (which deforms Image 1 to fit Image 2), and construction (Fuses both Image 1 by deforming it halfway, and Image 2 also halfway).

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

And to top it all off realistic contruction, well this is more of a challenge then an idea.

I have a very long hand writen, so I'll make it short.

Render selected area to: hair style (changes whole single coulour area to make it look like hair), tree bark style, metallic style, light style, etc.

Uses points and lines to create bents, bulged, holes, etc. (exemple, using line to make scalp line (hair style), or points to make bullet holes or tree trunk hole.)

You'll never know what will happen...

Most of what you want is better handed outside of Paint.Net. E.g. if you want to create fonts - use a font editor. Animation - the same applies.

Morphing - Plugins can only access one layer. You can read more about the limitations of plugins here: Clicky.

Programmers who release plugins do so for their own reasons. They are not at your beck and call. If you want something, at least have the decency to use the terms "please" and "thank you". Remember, you get this software for free.

Best idea: Why don't you download the Codelab plugin and turn your ideas into plugins the rest of us can use?

1. Font editor: http://www.freshfreestuff.net/free/free-online-font-creator-fontstruct.html

^online and free!^

2. Font randomizer: can't help you there

3. Animation:

^I'll teach you how to use if you don't understand^

Your last two will probably never become pdn plugins. Go buy photoshop.

Ok... Sorry for not saying "please" and "thank you".

As for the principles of some of my ideas, font and all, is that some most programs I find are trials, demos, or just plain complicated in a way as we call primative 1 pixel to 1 pixel. I would wish like creating:

FONT CREATOR: my "r" like a faucet, or an "h" like a chair if you get my drift.

MORPH: Even though if it affects one layer, there is a way, look at layer (Create, Duplicate, and Fuse). Not only that, "options" like burn colour, glow, and difference. By my analysis, and I am training to be a programmer, I can see that it is far from impossible. And like FONT, It has cost to even a low grade morpher.

FONT RANDOMIZER: Should be simple enough. Just create an add-on similar to text, and add the touch that changes fonts at each typed keys.

ANIMATION: I know how to do it, but I would like to make it work with the layers except of switching transparent and white. In other words upgrade.

Thanks, but I prefer to have free time to use codelab, but I can't.

Go buy photoshop.

What is the point of having photoshop when you have this great **free** alternative.

Rick is planning to make PDN 4.0 more plugin-friendly; perhaps he could allow plugins that do what you're asking.

And EER, I understand where you're coming from, but then what's the point of continuing development if no one donates new ideas? :roll: Would we have gradient if no one asked for it? And btw, I'd have to say that while PDN's gradient tool is limited compared photoshop, or even gimp, It's still better because it renders in real-time. The true definition of user-friendly.

And thank you Rick for PDN. ;)

You misunderstand my response. I'm not shutting down the ideas, just pointing out that most is not currently possible within PDN, or is better handled externally.

When people ask of others I DO insist on politeness.

I am training to be a programmer, I can see that it is far from impossible..... Should be simple enough. Just create an add-on.... I know how to do it

Good. Do it.
