Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: Glint

Glint

In the S_Glint Plugin.

Generates star shaped glints at locations where the Source clip is brighter than the threshold, and combines the glints with the Source image. Glints are best observed on dark images with a few bright spots.

Inputs:

Source: The input clip that determines the glint locations and colors. This clip is also used as the background and the glints are layered back onto it.

Parameters:

Load Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Browser to browse all available presets for this effect.

Save Preset: Push-button .
Brings up the Preset Save dialog to save a preset for this effect.

Size: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the length of all glint rays. This and all the size parameters can be adjusted using the Size Widget. Note that a zero glint size still enhances the bright areas; set the brightness parameter to zero if you want to pass the Source through unchanged.

Size X: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the length of the horizontal glint rays.

Size Y: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the length of the vertical glint rays.

Size Diag1: Default: 0.75, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the length of the diagonal rays from top right to bottom left.

Size Diag2: Default: 0.75, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the length of the diagonal rays from top left to bottom right.

Size Red: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the length of the red component of the rays. If the red, green, and blue sizes are equal the glints will be uniform in color and will match the color of the source clip. If they are not equal, the glint colors can vary along the lengths of the rays.

Size Green: Default: 2, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the length of the green component of the rays.

Size Blue: Default: 3, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the length of the blue component of the rays.

Blur Glint: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
The glints are blurred by this amount before being combined with the background.

Hue Shift: Default: 0, Range: any, Shared .
Shifts the hue of the glint, in revolutions from red to green to blue to red.

Brightness: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of all the glints.

Scale Colors: Default rgb: [1 1 1], Shared .
Scales the color of the glints. The colors and brightnesses of the glints are also affected by the Source input.

Threshold Add Color: Default rgb: [0 0 0], Shared .
This can be used to raise the threshold on a specific color and thereby reduce the glints generated on areas of the source clip containing that color.

Threshold: Default: 0.7, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Glints are generated from locations in the source clip that are brighter than this value. A value of 0.9 causes glints at only the brightest spots. A value of 0 causes glints for every non-black area.

Threshold Blur: Default: 0.1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Increase to smooth out the areas creating glints. This can be used to eliminate glints generated from small speckles or to simply soften the glints. Increasing this may put more highlights below the threshold and darken the resulting glints, but you can decrease the Threshold parameter to compensate.

Scale Source: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of the Source input when combined with the glints. This does not affect the generation of the glints themselves.

Params2:

Brightness X: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of the horizontal glint rays.

Brightness Y: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of the vertical glint rays.

Brightness Diag1: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of the diagonal rays from top right to bottom left.

Brightness Diag2: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of the diagonal rays from top left to bottom right.

Params3:

Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Brings up the Mocha window for tracking footage and generating masks.

Blur Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Blurs the Mocha Mask by this amount before using. This can be used to soften the edges or quantization artifacts of the mask, and smooth out the time displacements.

Mocha Opacity: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 1, Shared .
Controls the strength of the Mocha mask. Lower values reduce the intensity of the effect.

Invert Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
If enabled, the black and white of the Mocha Mask are inverted before applying the effect.

Show Mocha Only: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Bypass the effect and show the Mocha Mask itself.

Bypass Mocha: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
Ignore the Mocha Mask and apply the effect to the entire source clip.
