Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: DissolveGlintRainbow

DissolveGlintRainbow

In the S_Dissolves Plugin.

Transitions between two input clips using a bright glowing glint. The clips dissolve into each other, while each one gets a glint which ramps up and down over the duration of the effect. The Dissolve Amt parameter should be animated to control the transition speed.

Inputs:

From: Starts the transition with this clip.

To: Ends the transition with this clip.

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.

Dissolve Amt: AutoTransition,  Default: 0, Range: -0.5 to 1.5, Shared .
The transition ratio between the From and To inputs. A value of 0 gives only the From input and a value of 1 gives only the To input. By default this parameter automatically animates from 0 to 1 to perform a complete transition.

Dissolve Speed: Default: 3, Range: 1 or greater.
The speed of the dissolve between the From and To clips. When set to 1, the dissolve takes place over the entire duration of the effect. When set higher, the dissolve is shorter, although the glint ramp-up and ramp-down still takes the entire duration. Setting this to 10 can make the transition snappier and more like a flash-frame cut.

Glint Brightness: Default: 1.5, Range: 0 or greater.
The maximum brightness of the glint in the middle of the transition.

Glint Threshold: Default: 0.7, Range: any.
Glints are generated from locations in the From and To clips there are brighter than this valuye. 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.
Increase to smooth out the areas creating dissolves. This can be used to eliminate dissolves generated from small speckles or to simply soften the dissolves. Increasing this may put more highlights below the threshold and darken the resulting dissolves, but you can decrease the Threshold parameter to compensate.

Glint Size: Default: 2, Range: 0 or greater.
The maximum size of the glint at the middle of the transition.

Glint Shrink: Default: 0.8, Range: 0 to 1.
The fraction by which the glint size is reduced at the beginning and end of the transition.

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

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

Glint Scale Colors: Default rgb: [1 1 1].
Scales the color of the glints. The colors and brightnesses of the glints are also affected by the From and To inputs.

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

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

Params2:

Rel From Bright: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Relative brightness of the glint on the outgoing (From) clip.

Rel From Size: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Relative size of the glint on the outgoing (From) clip.

From Threshold: Default: 0, Range: any.
Extra threshold to apply to the glint on the outgoing (From) clip.

Rel From Color: Default rgb: [1 1 1].
Relative color of the glint on the outgoing (From) clip.

Rel To Color: Default rgb: [1 1 1].
Relative color of the glint on the incoming (To) clip.

Rel To Bright: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Relative brightness of the glint on the incoming (To) clip.

Rel To Size: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Relative size of the glint on the incoming (To) clip.

To Threshold: Default: 0, Range: any.
Extra threshold to apply to the glint on the incoming (To) clip.

Params3:

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

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

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

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

Shift Out: Default: 1, Range: any.
Shifts the glint rays outwards from their source highlights by this amount relative to the glint size.

Shift Red: Default: 0.3, Range: any.
Shifts the red component of the glints in or out relative to the blue. The green is centered between blue and red for a complete spectrum.

Shift Blue: Default: -0.3, Range: any.
Shifts the blue component of the glints in or out relative to the red and green. This can be used with Shift Red to adjust the range of hues in the glints.
