Sapphire Plug-ins for AVX2: WarpWaves2

S_WarpWaves2

Warps the source clip using two sets of overlapping wave patterns. You can make the waves move over time by increasing the Phase Speed parameters, or by animating the value of the Phase Start parameters.

In the Sapphire Distort category.


Inputs:

Source: The current track. The input clip to be warped.

Background: Optional. The clip to use as background. The output of the effect is composited over this clip.

Mask: Optional. If provided, the amplitude of warping is scaled by the values of this input clip. Gray values internally scale the warping amplitude rather than simply cross-fading between the effect and the original source to allow more continuous results at the mask edges and more detailed control over the warping amounts. This input can be affected using the Blur Mask, Invert Mask, or Mask Use parameters.

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.

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

Blur Mocha: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
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.
Controls the strength of the Mocha mask. Lower values reduce the intensity of the effect.

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

Resize Mocha: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 2.
Scales the Mocha Mask. 1.0 is the original size.

Resize Rel X: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 2.
The relative horizontal size of the Mocha Mask.

Resize Rel Y: Default: 1, Range: 0 to 2.
The relative vertical size of the Mocha Mask.

Shift Mocha: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
Offsets the position of the Mocha Mask.

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

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

Combine Masks: Popup menu,  Default: Union .
Determines how to combine the Mocha Mask and Input Mask when both are supplied to the effect.
Union: Uses the area covered by both masks together.
Intersect: Uses the area that overlaps between the two masks.
Mocha Only: Ignore the Input Mask and only use the Mocha Mask.

A Parameters:

A Frequency: Default: 6, Range: 0.1 or greater.
The frequency of the first set of waves. Increase for more waves, decrease for fewer.

A Amplitude: Default: 0.06, Range: any.
The amplitude of the first set of waves.

A Angle: Default: 45, Range: any.
The rotation angle of the first set of waves in degrees.

A Displace Angle: Default: 0, Range: any.
The warping direction of the first set of waves in degrees relative to their angle.

A Phase Start: Default: 0, Range: any.
The phase shift of the first set of waves.

A Phase Speed: Default: 1, Range: any.
If non-zero, the first set of wave automatically travels at this rate.

B Parameters:

B Frequency: Default: 3, Range: 0.1 or greater.
The frequency of the second set of waves. Increase for more waves, decrease for fewer.

B Amplitude: Default: 0.12, Range: any.
The amplitude of the second set of waves.

B Angle: Default: 15, Range: any.
The rotation angle of the second set of waves in degrees.

B Displace Angle: Default: 0, Range: any.
The warping direction of the second set of waves in degrees relative to their angle.

B Phase Start: Default: 0, Range: any.
The phase shift of the second set of waves.

B Phase Speed: Default: -1, Range: any.
If non-zero, the second set of wave automatically travels at this rate.

Other Parameters:

Z Dist: Default: 1, Range: 0.001 or greater.
Scales the 'distance' of the image. Values greater than 1.0 move it farther away and make it smaller. Values less than 1.0 move the image closer and enlarge it. Zooming in slightly can sometimes be used to hide edge artifacts.

Wrap: X & Y,  Popup menu,  Default: [ Reflect Reflect ].
Determines the method for accessing outside the borders of the source image.
No: gives black beyond the borders.
Tile: repeats a copy of the image.
Reflect: repeats a mirrored copy. Edges are often less visible with this method.

Filter: Check-box,  Default: on.
If enabled, the image is adaptively filtered when it is resampled. This gives a better quality result when parts of the image are warped smaller.

Blur Mask: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Blurs the Mask input by this amount before using. This can provide a smoother transition between the masked and unmasked areas. It has no effect unless the Mask input is provided.

Invert Mask: Check-box,  Default: off.
If on, inverts the mask input so the effect is applied to areas where the Mask is black instead of white. This has no effect unless the Mask input is provided.

Mask Use: Popup menu,  Default: Luma .
Determines how the Mask input channels are used to make a monochrome mask.
Luma: the luminance of the RGB channels is used.
Alpha: only the Alpha channel is used, or if there is no valid Alpha channel the Red channel is used.
