TR's Distort This! - Plugin V2.7.5 (Mar 6th, 2016)


Recommended Posts

This is what I just got when displacing and clicking around:

I've been using this a lot recently.
(Making a time-lapse animation of an oil painting I've been doing (yet another :roll::D ), with many photos of work in progress taken from slightly different angles.
This was ideal for correcting the images back to a rectangle. Love the keyboard arrow input, for accurate placing of the corners.)

So useful.
- Many thanks. B)

last windows 10 update

Works well for me on windows 10 - but I haven't had the major windows update yet?

 

Is 'TR's Distort this' right at the bottom of the list in Effects/Distort... does the plugin info tool-tip flash on and off?
- If that's the case, try to click to the left of the plugin info box.

@Jagersvrouw - It happens to me all the time.  When you move your cursor over the Plugin to open it, if the cursor is not on the very left edge - it will not open.  Once before this was reported and I think a Mod answered saying it happens when you have too many Plugins in the Effects Folder :/

Thank you Pixi. I think you have cracked it. I do have some 25 plugins and am still adding as I try to learn from tutorials on this site and you tube.

Thank you Red Ochre. I didnot know what the blob on the left  was for or what is was called. Now I do and it works!

Well I˝m happy to say that this plug-in worked for me. At the and of a long day yesterday - I put it to the test. It did crash paint - but I will accept the fact I was too quick in moving the control points around. This morning it worked perfectly. That red flashing warning label does mean something. B)

Unfortunately TechnoRobbo hasn't been on the forum for ages, so it's unlikely to get fixed soon.

I did a quick test and no crashes - can you remember exactly how you crashed it?

Best to save your image before using this one then.

Pushing it to its limits I˝m sure.  Moving the mouse too quickly and playing with the slide bars. I appreciate the calculations it has to perform to render the image I was looking for. It works with simple images - but if one image has a lot of other enhancements applied to to it - it taxes his plug-in. Nothing lost of great importance. I did notice a different way it crashed from the first time a plug-in did it. This is the one that doesn't create a crash log and recommends to restart paint instead of just crashing to the desktop. I think that˝s a positive sign. I see he has made a lot of plug-ins. Hope he returns soon.

Digital images are just a collection of integer numbers between 0 and 255!
Obviously they mean more to us than they do to the computer.
For a 'bitmap' program like Pdn, it makes little difference to the computer if the image is a blank canvas or has had umpteen effects applied to it... just numbers.
Well, not even that, just switches turned off or on (or undecided if the voltage is wrong)... as I understand it.:/

 

In other words it shouldn't crash because you've applied too many effects to an image. It could crash if you're moving the controls too much and not letting it 'catch up'.
(Installing too many effects can slow down the start time of Pdn - but only if you have hundreds):)

 

Yes, TechnoRobbo is much missed - a very bright and helpful person. I believe he is alive and well but understandably devoting less time to Pdn.

exactly what I was doing. As I get more familiar with the different plug-ins I will learn each ones limitations. Up to about 140 now and this is really the second one that has crashed paint. I remember when apps would crash the computer and introduce us to the blue screen.

It could, but it really shouldn't.

In the coming days, I'm going to have a close look at the code, and see what's going on there.

 

 

EDIT: I spent about 30 minutes trying to get it to crash, and I was unsuccessful.

If I can't get it to crash, I can't know where the issue is in the code. It's like a needle in a haystack.
