MadJik Posted April 12, 2008 Share Posted April 12, 2008 Sparkles Effect Plugin What's this? First of all, the initial idea belongs to kshotts: scanning the picture to find out the little shinning stars to add them some sparkles. Second I'm calling flaRe the circle and flaKe the star. Download the DLL Plugin Sparkles.dll Here is the DLL The MadJik's All plugins package is available ! http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=7186 How to install Close Paint.net Classic version of Paint.net Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: C:/Program Files/Paint.NET/Effects Microsoft Store version of Paint.net Unzip and (re)place the DLL in your Effect folder usually: /My Documents/paint.net App Files/Effects/ You have to adapt for your language My Documents The User interface This plugin is added to the menu Effects, submenu Render. Maximum quantity of sparkles to add (security limit): If the image is too light (white) the plugin was hanging, because all and every pixels were considered as a brilliant spot to add a sparkle to! And so it was running for hours/days/weeks! The limit is here to avoid this problem. Play between the limit and the brightness threshold to have a good coverage over the image... Brightness Threshold: Increase the value to select only the brightest pixels. Maximum Glitter Size: Maximum (if random checked) radius. Glitter Possibility : Possibility (0=none, 100=all) for a bright pixel to receive a glitter. Flare/Flake ratio: 0=only flares, 100=only flakes, other=ratio between flares & flakes. Flare normal/invert ratio: 0=only normals, 100=only inverts. Normals are brighter in the center. Flake normal/invert ratio: 0=only normals, 100=only inverts. Normals are brighter in the center. Flare number of vertices: Quantity of rays to draw for the flare (0=perfect circle). Flake number of vertices: Quantity of vertices for the flake (star). Random size: If checked all glitters have a random radius up to the selected maximum size. Else they all have the same size to the maximum. Some examples: Original model: Only flakes: Only flares: Fireworks! Shooting stars! ____________________________________________ Caviar: Some tips: __The glitters are created from the top-left corner to the bottom-right corner. The last one overwrites the first one. __A spot with a small radius is made with several pixels and each pixel of the spot could receive a glitter.
