Hello David,

Congratulations on the 'sticky' (sounds uncomfortable but I believe it is a great compliment!). :D

Very much deserved though, great plugin. :star:

Been playing with the new version 1.1a - love the width-wise shading options - running it on different layers is no problem. The randomization code feature is really useful for that.

I have noticed a slightly unexpected behaviour. Not a bug!

The 'identical lines' checkbox can be selected in radial or parallel mode. It then remains selected but greyed out when returning to point to point mode, (producing many lines on top of each other appearing as one line). This is logical and I don't know if any other behaviour would be better. It just puzzled me for while that I had selected a number of lines but could only see one. Perhaps it shouldn't be greyed out if it is active? - anyway not a problem.

Amazed at how many useful things can be produced with this, many thanks!

(re. EEr's comment - I assumed it had to be written in Visual studio ?) :/

I've merged and altered the original shading layers quite a bit on this one.

I would actually call that a bug (as in unintended bahavior), even if it's relatively harmless ...

Love the picture! Thanks for posting it. Those branches/tentacles/whatever look a little scary, though. :noes:

Very nice plugin Davidf,it's going to take awhile to see what all can be done with it. This one was my first try and I could see by that one I will be spending hours playing with this plugin. Thanks. :)

All you have to do is download the zip folder from the first post, then drag and drop the .dll file into the effects folder (C:\Program Files\Paint.net\Effects). If that is what you are doing, then I'm not sure why it isn't working. Make sure you restart paint.net after installing the plugin.

all is well - it was the way the computer was set up after the upgrade...i added another account as 'shared' downloaded it by IE [which i don't like] it opened it & there it was - so copied it - went back to being Administrator & pasted it in.....geez......computer goes back on Monday to get the settings right.....very reluctant to blame a machine for my own inadeqacies at being creative- all brand new to me.....many thanks to all  regards

Hi Kami - welcome to the forum.

 

Nice image - but a little too large for the forum (maximum limit is 800 pixels high or wide).  I've replaced the image with a clickable link.

Nice.  Very organic and natural looking.

Please excuse my posting this late reply.   I am new to PDN and am going through these forums for the first time.

 

This plugin is beyond amazing, a good bit of fun, and in my opinion deserving of this most complimentary acknowledgement to the author, davidf.   Thank you David.

 

All the useful coolness in this tool got me to experimenting a bit and I decided to see what would happen if what I created with the Curly Lines plugin were rendered again using Shape3D.   The results, similar to this one, were really quite interesting but unfortunately I can not recall all steps taken or settings used.

 

 

Thanks again to all who create, participate, and moderate the gift that is PDN.
