How It Works


 

The plugin is a photographic realization of a digital lowpass audio filter.


 

In Laymen's terms - its a buffer that resists change.  As you move the buffer over the image it collects a certain percentage of the image from the buffer's location and blends it into the buffer.Then the program deposits the content of the buffer. Elements of the background are therefore,dragged along into other areas of the background.

That's cheating! - I rely on 'lucky' words. :)

I find maths far more interesting if I can see what it's doing - I'm actually starting to understand some of the maths I was supposed to have learnt 30 odd years ago.

It's also good to see how much can be achieved with so few lines of code.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding this plugin but this seems like a very awkward way to smudge compared to mine. It's also painfully slow and doesn't work well with transparency.

edit: I do see one advantage to this control scheme in that you can see the fully layered image while you work, but that's irrelevant as long as it doesn't work correctly with alpha.

I guess it's relevant now

 

Version 1.1 Uploaded - works correctly with Alpha Cahnnel

 

It's also painfully slow ...

I guess at this point it's best to explain:

Version 2.1 Uploaded. Code is much Faster - I didn't think I'd get it done so quickly.

 

Thanks Red, I just accelerated the code 10 fold using Lockbits

Checkout the Source Code - Intend on accelerating edge fader also.

This tool is exactly what I needed! But I am having a little problem with it.  A second window opens to work on the smudging but the second window does not show the entire image.  Not even in "Zoom 1x". There does not seem to be able way to move the image around in the window to look at all parts of the image.  The window also does not seem to be resizable.  Does this still work in Paint 4.2?  And/or is there some way that I can see my entire image to work on it.

Thank for all your work.
