Oblique Effect Plugin


What's this?

This is a plugin under Effect/Distort menu.

This effect will enable you to incline texts or images, vertically horizontally or both using the sliders.


(only the second line of text is changed by this effect)



Be aware some specifications:

- If X alone or Y alone = 1.0, it corresponds to 45° oblique angle.

- if part of the tilted image leaves on a side, it reappears on the other.

- calculation is made from the center of the image.

- if you apply the effect several times and apply same effects with opposite values, you won't obtain the original image. This is due to rounding. (But could be an effect in itself?)

- if you apply vertical & horizontal none zero at the same time you'll have like image reduction (test it vert:0.50 hori:-0.50 and Ctrl-F 3-4 times).



Download it!

Sorry for posting after this thread was inactive for some months, but it would be weird to create a new one in G.D.

May I ask for moving the plugin to "distort" because my effects menue is just to full and I don't want to remove effects. If the plugin was done in codelab it is just enough to publish the source code so I can make a new version myself.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Madjik,

Thanks for another great update. Wonder if you could date this plugin, as you do for the others, so that we will not miss your latest version.

Wonder if this request is feasible? Could we separately adjust the two horizontal and two vertical parameters of the object we are applying the oblique plugin to? Find the zoom/rotate rather hit-miss possibly because I'm not too familiar with the complicated settings.

This may make fitting oblique images to a rotated box a much easier task. Hope it's not too difficult.

I actually did try to fit a picture to the side but found it very difficult - probably because of inexperience.

Was just hoping that slider controls could enable the various lengths to be adjusted more easily in your plugin but guess that it could be too much work!

Thanks for responding. Appreciate all the plugins and updates that show your perfectionistic trait.
