Motion Sharpen Distort Effect Plugin


What's this?

This is a plugin under Effect/Distort menu.

You know the motion blur effect, you should also know the Sharpen effect.

I've tryed here to create a Motion Sharpen effect. Instead blurring while moving, it will sharpen the image...

It's not perfect, but you could use it with text and title to give some relief...



Download it!

Plugin MotionSharpen.dll

ar.pngHere is the DLLal.png



The MadJik's All plugins package is available !



How to install


Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects



The User interface




...Set the motion direction.


...The motion is balanced forward/backward (or only forward if unchecked).

Blend Mode:

...Normal: the effect is like the motion blur.

...Darken: the motion is applied and use the darkest pixels to trace on.

...Lighten: same but with lightest pixels.

...Sharpen: same but using an average calculation on the pixels.



Some examples:
