Popular Post Red ochre Posted September 5, 2013 Popular Post Share Posted September 5, 2013 Furblur update 30th July 2014 A versatile blur/trail effect. Useful for Fur, false beards and grass textures and also for paper textures, watercolour effects and 'scribbled' drawing effects. Found under: Effects/Blurs/FurBlur Dll name = FurBlur. An updated version is in my V10 Plugin pack here Red ochre v10 plugin pack I would like thank 'Null54' who made this plugin possible. I spent days trying to get it to work and he solved the problem in hours! - greatly indebted. I would also like to thank EER, without whose diplomatic skills I would have left the forum months ago. Finally I must thank the many people who tested this for me over on developers central - the difficulty with random effects is that the bugs can be quite random too, it appears. So many people testing has been very useful. I am updating Furblur. It still works in much the same way on default settings, but I have added some more 'fun' stuff. Changes: 1. I wanted to make some feathers and needed more control over the curl direction, so have added this. 2. Started running out of U.I. space, so put these new curl choices in a drop-down list with the direction choices. 3. Took the liberty of removing some of the titles to the drop-down boxes - again to save space. 4. Have removed the colouring choice - now it only colours along the fur. (The fur can easily be recoloured later if the 'only keep fur' box is checked). 5. Have improved the antialiasing. 6. Have slightly increased the speed. 7. The fun bit - have included 12 new curl shapes. 8. Changed the icon pussycat colour to ginger - so you can easily tell which version you have! History Hidden Content: v1 = 459 downloads As before, best to experiment as described below - the UI has changed but all the previous examples are still possible. Here is the new U.I. and example curl shapes: How to use: Be very wary of using the plugin on large selections with large 'reps' or 'length' as it will be very slow! I suggest you try the plugin out in the following way, just to get an idea of how it works. 1. New image 800 * 600 - make background black. 2. New layer (transparent) 3. Draw 10 pix wiggly lines. nice bright colours 4. Possibly select around these lines with the lasso tool (leave plenty of room for the effect!) 5. Effects/Blurs/Furblur - lower the 'rep' slider and increase the 'length' slider to start. 6. Try each slider seperately to see what they do. Hopefully the following images will give you some ideas. Please feel free to post your FurBlur images in this thread and any tips you have discovered. Enjoy! 1 11 Quote Red ochre Plugin pack..............
