Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: GlowEdgesMask

GlowEdgesMask

In the S_GlowsMask Plugin.

Glows are created from the edges of the source clip. This is similar to GlowEdges but here the glow colors are scaled by the Mask input.

Inputs:

Source: Edges are extracted from this input clip to determine the glow locations.

Mask: The source glow colors are scaled by this input. A monochrome Mask can be used to choose a subset of Source areas that will generate glows. A color Mask can be used to selectively adjust the glow colors in different regions. The Mask is applied to the source before the glows are generated so it will not clip the resulting glows.

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.

Width: Default: 0.1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the glow distance. This and all the width parameters can be adjusted using the Width Widget. Note that a zero glow width still enhances the bright areas; set the brightness parameter to zero if you want to pass the Source through unchanged.

Width Red: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the red glow width. If the red, green, and blue widths are equal, the glow colors be uniform with distance. If they are not equal, the glows will vary in color with distance.

Width Green: Default: 1.2, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the green glow width.

Width Blue: Default: 1.4, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the blue glow width.

Subpixel: Check-box,  Default: off.
Enables glowing by subpixel widths. Use this for smoother animation of the Width parameters.

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

Width X: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the horizontal glow width. Set to 0 for vertical only.

Width Y: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the vertical glow width. Set to 0 for horizontal only.

Edges Smooth: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Determines the width of the extracted edges which generate the glows.

Edges Brightness: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the brightness of the edges before the glows are applied.

Edges Threshold: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater.
Increase to remove glows on the less sharp edges.

Glow Brightness: Default: 2, Range: 0 or greater.
Controls the overall glow brightness. Set to zero to get no glow.

Color: Default rgb: [1 1 1].
Scales the color of the glows.

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

Eclipse With Bg: Default: 0, Range: 0 to 1, Shared .
If this is set to 1, the background is subtracted from the glow and gives an eclipsed shadow effect.

Params2:

Show: Popup menu,  Default: Result .
Selects the type of output.
Result: Normally the glows are combined with the source or background, and output.
Edges: The edge image only is output, before any glows are applied. This can be helpful while adjusting the various edge parameters.

Combine: Popup menu,  Default: Screen .
Determines how the glow is combined with the Source or Background. This parameter has no effect if Light BG is set to 1.
Mult: the source or background is multiplied by the glow.
Add: the glow is added to the source or background.
Screen: the glow is blended with the source or background using a screen operation.
Difference: the result is the difference between the glow and the source or background.
Overlay: the glow is combined with the source or background using an overlay function.

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.
