Gradient Blur (ymd:100710)

Recommended Posts

I did have a thought though but it's probably miles out. Couldn't this work by the user selecting the area to start the blur from and then blur from the edge of the selection outwards based upon the blur distance specified by the user?
I'm calculating the distance from the center to define the blur amount. It is then more 'natural' to me to set the distance from the center...The other way (from the edge) will be to difficult to implemant!

I was thinking that everything on the inside of the selection would be untouched and then the blur would start from the edge of the selection area.

I could add a check box to invert the blur:

On (normal) : less blur at the center, full blur on the edge

Off (invert) : full blur at the center, less blur on the edge

ehehehehe you're updating all your plugins today ? :D

Yes...I'll try so it could be a good idea to wait for the update of the package!

I've been trying but it seems the blur does not follow custom shapes (i.e. lasso select). I've attached a picture (sorry for the crudeness) of what I'm trying to do: the red indicates where I have the lasso select tool selected; the blue represents the area to be blurred and then unblur in the space between the red and blue, fully unblurring when it reaches the red. Effectively you would have a "U" shaped gradient blur. The option to blur from the edge seems to make an estimated boundary overlapping the whole area instead of using the actual selected area.

Just hoping this was what I was looking for because it makes superimposing very easy.

Thanks for your time.

I've missed this due to holidays...

The method used to blur takes the corners of the selection and it gives a good execution time. I've not time for now to think about another way... but I'm sure it'll be slow.
