pyrochild plugins (2020-11-21)


Recommended Posts

That's right. The DLL's need to be copied and pasted into your paint.net/Effects/ folder.

 

First find the folder you mentioned and select all the DLL files (you can omit the two txt files but it won't matter if you include these too).

 

Press Ctrl + C to copy all the selected files.

 

Navigate to your copy of paint.net. It usually resides in "C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\".

 

Then find and open the Effects folder within the paint.net folder. You should be in "C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects\"

 

Now comes the cool bit. Press Ctrl + V to paste the dll files you copied into the destination folder.

 

That's it!

 

Restart paint.net and look for the new effects in your Effects menu. Pyrochild has listed all the locations in the first post of this thread. For example, find Scriptlab under Effects > Advanced > ScriptLab.

Updated:

ScriptLab

- Works with Levels effect

- Can script another ScriptLab instance. I don't know why you would want to do this, but now you can. Scriptception!

- Fixed progress bar not filling for certain effects like Red Eye Removal (effects using SingleRenderCall)

- Changes begin rendering as soon as the currently rendering effect can be cancelled instead of waiting for the whole script to render before starting over

- Fixed some crashes when moving/changing effects while rendering

- Cancel now cancels as soon as possible instead of waiting for the whole script to finish (or hanging Paint.NET...)

- OK no longer rerenders the whole script

- Fixed some load errors while loading scripts w/ missing effects

- Load/save errors now show detailed exceptions for easier troubleshooting

- Fixed color window showing alpha = 0 when a color is opaque black

- Misc performance improvements

Gradient Mapping, Grid Warp, Liquify, Smudge, Splatter, and Twist

- Fixed color window showing alpha = 0 when a color is opaque black

Hello friends, I have for you a minor update to fix some major bugs in ScriptLab:

- Fixed: Clicking in the Available list when there are no results for the search term would crash ScriptLab

- Fixed: Clicking Cancel while rendering would sometimes hang Paint.NET

Hooray

Update!

ScriptLab and Curves+ are now on GitHub! More to come as time allows.

Some changes in ScriptLab:

- Improve horrible UI decisions - give me a break, I was in high school.

- Fix hang when close button clicked while rendering

- Individual progress bars for each effect

- Change multiple step's colors at once

- Fix: sometimes selection highlight would remain in script after an item was no longer selected

- More robust script-saving

Borders N' Shapes and Gradient Bars are now on GitHub. I'm just going down the list but if anyone would like a particular plugin open sourced I'll certainly take it into consideration and do it sooner.

Thank you for publishing the source to these plugins. I do enjoy poking around in other peoples code.

I've always wondered how Liquify works. For all its complexity it has never crashed or needed an update. Stunning bit of work IMHO. If you plan to release them all, Liquify would be my request.

Hello,
i have downloaded the pyrochild plugin pack and i have an issue. Everything works fine in effects besides the most important effects for me- objects. Neither outline, nor trail. I have tried to change the values, but without result, the whole text remains the same and nothing changes. And as i said, everything else works on the text without problem. Somehow i don´t see any logical explanation to this issue. Don´t you have any idea what could be the problem?
Thank you for your answer in advance.
(i apologize for my English)

Best regards

SzPeto, one thing you must remember about effects in the Object menu:

An "object" is a group of pixels on a layer that is completely surrounded by transparent pixels (or the edge(s) of the canvas). These plugins are useful when doing "cutouts" or with text on a new layer.

Thank you for the answer, it helped me. The issue was that i din´t created a new layer with the text that i wanted to have "shadow". It works now fine (y)

Hello All,

I'm new here and I am running Paint.NET v3.5.9 (Final Release build 3.59.4291.17466) on a Windows 7 - 64bit machine.

The Newer version (4.0.9) says it's not compatible with my Windows version.

 

I just downloaded the plugin pack and the pyrochild.effects.common.dll  file is not included in the download.

The following filters don't show up at all and the Plugin Browser doesn't see them either, even though the files are in the Effects folder.

(Also there is no "Effects -> Tools" menu option.) 

 

Gradient Mapping.dll

Grid Warp.dll

Liquify.dll

ScriptLab.dll

Smudge.dll

Splatter.dll

Twist.dll

 

I also downloaded the Droste plugin and it doesn't appear either.

Droste.dll

MathNet.Iridium.dll

 

Any help would be awesome.
