Stars Effect Plugin

What's this?

This is a plugin under Effect/render menu. You should use it to create/add stars.

I'm now just reviving the images and the UI.

 

 

Download the DLL

Plugin Stars.dll

ar.pngHere is the DLLal.png

 

 

This plugin is included in the plugins package!

How to install?

Close Paint.net

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

 

 

The User interface

Vertex (n): set the quantity of spines for the star.

 

External Raduis (R1): set the larger radius.

 

Internal Raduis (R2): set the smaller radius.

 

Ex/Internal Rotation (a/b): distort the regular star by applying a rotation.

 

Repeat: reproduce the star as much as the value is set. Need some steps for better effect.

 

Steps: increment/decrement value between each repetition of the stars.

 

Drawing options: check the option(s) you need:

...External lines

...Rays from the center

...Both

(test it, easy to understand!)

 

End Caps options: check the option to change the end of the lines :

...None

...Round

...Triangle

...Square

 

Gradient:  If checked the repetitions of stars is a gradient from primary color to secondary color.

 

Anti-Aliasing: (no anti aliasing if brush width is 1)

 

Brush width

 

Transparency

 

Examples:

Artwork using New stars (but not only...)

Refresh images and UI.

 

Some ideas for a next version:

- repeat + steps

- better angle handling

- fill / alterned fill

- colors (random or from palette)

- etc.

@MadJik Can a "curvy " End Caps Option be added?

  Reveal hidden contents

Sorry to say no, I'm just using the possibilities of the drawline function.

It is ok. I was trying to see if it could be modified to create flowers. 

Spoiler

 

I managed to create this one using the Kaleidoscope effect. :)
