Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: DiffuseMask

DiffuseMask

Same as Diffuse but with a Mask input. Scrambles the pixels of the source input within an area determined by the Diffuse Amount.

Inputs:

Source: The clip to be processed.

Mask: Determines which areas of the image receive diffusing pixels. Gray values internally scale the Diffuse Amount parameter rather than simply cross-fading between the effect and the original source. This can allow more continuous results at the mask edges and more detailed control over the diffusion amounts. The mask can be blurred using the Blur Mask parameter. Only the red channel of this input is used.

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.

Diffuse Amount: Default: 0.1, Range: 0 or greater.
The amplitude of the pixel diffusion process. This parameter can be adjusted using the Amount Widget.

Rel Amount: X & Y,   Default: [1 1], Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the relative horizontal and vertical amounts of diffusion. This parameter can be adjusted using the Amount Widget.

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.

Blur Mask: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Blurs the Mask input by this amount before using. This can be used to soften the edges of the mask and provide a smoother transition between the masked and unmasked areas.

Invert Mask: Check-box,  Default: off.
If enabled, inverts the mask input so the effect is applied to areas where the Mask is black instead of white.

Params2:

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.

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.
