Using Selection as Input and writing outside it


Recommended Posts

I'm considering writing a PDN extension.


An initial idea is to use the selection area as a input, then write to a wider area (whole canvas) based on what I find in selection.


What is the best way to achieve this sort of thing in a PDN extension.


(I expect to be using VS for the development rather than the lab.)

  • Bring up another window in which to make a selection?


Yes, you can extend your EffectConfigDialog to show a full copy of the canvas and implement any sort of tool you want, including selections. See my Liquify or Smudge plugins for an example. You'll still be limited to the current layer, though.
