Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: GlowRainbow

GlowRainbow

In the S_Glows Plugin.

Generates rainbow colored glows based on the distances from the edges of the source input. Any edges in the input image, where the brightness crosses the given threshold value, will generate an equal glow into the darker side of the edges. This is best observed when used on images with dark backgrounds.

Inputs:

Source: The input clip that determines the glow locations and colors. This clip is also used as the background and the glows 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.

Width: Default: 0.5, 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.

Frequency: Default: 12, Range: 0 or greater.
The frequency of the color pattern. Increase for more cycles through the spectrum.

Frequency Red: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the red frequency.

Frequency Green: Default: 0.9, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the green frequency.

Frequency Blue: Default: 0.8, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the blue frequency.

Phase: Default: 0, Range: any.
Shifts the color pattern.

Phase Speed: Default: 1, Range: any.
If non-zero, the color phase is automatically animated at this speed, causing the color pattern to flow over time.

Phase Red: Default: 0, Range: any.
Shifts the red phase.

Phase Green: Default: 0, Range: any.
Shifts the green phase.

Phase Blue: Default: 0, Range: any.
Shifts the blue phase.

Brightness: Default: 0.8, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the brightness of the glows.

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

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

Threshold: Default: 0.5, Range: 0 or greater.
Glows are generated at the edges of areas in the source clip that are brighter than this value. A value of 0.9 causes glows from only the brightest spots. A value of 0 causes glows for every non-black area.

Glow Saturation: Default: 1, Range: any.
Scales the saturation of the glow colors. Increase for more intense colors. Set to 0 for monochrome.

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: Shows the final result of combining the glow, source, and background.
Threshold: Shows the thresholded image that is used to generate the glow.

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.
