A simpler version of codelab...

Recommended Posts

I use codelab...a lot...but I realy don't understand the C+ or whatever it's called that is used to make it.

Could there be a simpler version, where you select a couple of effects and different layer modes etc. to make a working codelab effect or .dll?

This would help me and a lot of other code begginers to make great effects.

Thanks a lot

Anythings possible!

Codelab is fairly simple to use right now.

Are you asking for something similar to Codelab that would have its own language that is easier to learn than C#?

I'm fairly certain that *you* learning C# would be much easier than *me* defining and implement a new language interpreter... that you would still have to learn.

Perhaps, if you had specific questions about C# someone here could help you understand it.

Also, if you had an idea for an effect, maybe I could help you code it.

I have an Idea...

A conditional selection plug in (think conditional Hue/Sat Plug in).

I know we have the Magic Wand, But I think it would be beneficial to select the exact criteria for the selection based on hue, saturation, brightness and so on.....Just a thought.

I would like to see some type of script engine added to Paint.NET.

Imagine the ability to record/write batch type commands that could be run on multiple images...

Open "BoltBait.jpg"
Select All
Gaussian Blur (2)
Save "BoltBaitBlur.jpg", 95%
Close Current Image


ForEach File matching "c:\batch input\*.jpg"
Open %filename%
Gaussian Blur (2)
Save "c:\batch output\"+%filename%+"Blur", JPG, 95%
Close Current Image
Next File

How cool would that be? :D

reminds me of nconvert ;)

but this might actually not that much work, though this feature shouldn't reside in the Effects menu and I don't know whether effect plugins can appear anywhere else ;)

Obviously, this would be much bigger than an 'Effect'.

I actually had a meeting with a guy in the .NET Framework group just yesterday regarding some automation stuff. Stay tuned.

No, I can't say more than that.
