Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: GradientMulti

GradientMulti

Generates a smooth multi-color gradient across the screen using multiple control points, and optionally combines the gradient with a background clip.

Inputs:

Back: The clip to combine the gradient with.

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.

Effect: Popup menu,  Default: Gradient 3 .
The number of control points and colors to use when creating the gradient.
Gradient 3: Three-color gradient.
Gradient 4: Four-color gradient.
Gradient 5: Five-color gradient.
Gradient 6: Six-color gradient.

Color 1: Default rgb: [1 0 0], Shared .
The color at Point 1.

Color 2: Default rgb: [0 1 0], Shared .
The color at Point 2.

Color 3: Default rgb: [0 0 1], Shared .
The color at Point 3.

Color 4: Default rgb: [1 1 1], Shared .
The color at Point 4.

Color 5: Default rgb: [1 1 0], Shared .
The color at Point 5.

Color 6: Default rgb: [0 1 1], Shared .
The color at Point 6.

Softness: Default: 1, Range: 0.01 or greater, Shared .
The softness of the edges between color regions. Increasing this parameter will create a smoother gradient, while decreasing it will create sharper edges and more well-defined colors.

Softness Falloff: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Reduces the softness as the distance from the control points increases. Higher values will create more well-defined color regions near the edges of the image, while lower values will cause the colors to blend together more.

Combine: Popup menu,  Default: Grad Only .
Determines how the gradient is combined with the background.
Grad Only: gives the gradient image alone with no background.
Mult: the background is multiplied by the gradient.
Add: the background is added to the gradient.
Screen: the background is blended with the gradient using a screen operation.
Difference: the result is the difference between the background and gradient.
Overlay: combines gradient and background using an overlay function.

Scale Back: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of the background before combining it with the gradient.

Params2:

Point 1: X & Y,   Default: [-1 -0.75], Range: any, Shared .
First control point. This parameter can be adjusted using the Point 1 Widget.

Point 2: X & Y,   Default: [-1 0.732], Range: any, Shared .
Second control point. This parameter can be adjusted using the Point 2 Widget.

Point 3: X & Y,   Default: [1 0.732], Range: any, Shared .
Third control point. This parameter can be adjusted using the Point Widget.

Point 4: X & Y,   Default: [1 -0.75], Range: any, Shared .
Fourth control point. This parameter can be adjusted using the Point Widget.

Point 5: X & Y,   Default: [-0.167 0], Range: any, Shared .
Fifth control point. This parameter can be adjusted using the Point Widget.

Point 6: X & Y,   Default: [0.167 0], Range: any, Shared .
Sixth control point. This parameter can be adjusted using the Point Widget.

Params3:

Softness 1: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
The relative softness of color 1.

Softness 2: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
The relative softness of color 2.

Softness 3: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
The relative softness of color 3.

Softness 4: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
The relative softness of color 4.

Softness 5: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
The relative softness of color 5.

Softness 6: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
The relative softness of color 6.

Size 1: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
Scales the size of the color centered at Point 1.

Size 2: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
Scales the size of the color centered at Point 2.

Size 3: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
Scales the size of the color centered at Point 3.

Size 4: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
Scales the size of the color centered at Point 4.

Size 5: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
Scales the size of the color centered at Point 5.

Size 6: Default: 1, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
Scales the size of the color centered at Point 6.

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.
