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

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)

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. :)
