Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: ScanLinesMono

ScanLinesMono

In the S_ScanLines Plugin.

A monochrome version of ScanLines. Creates a version of the source clip with a scan lines pattern resembling a black and white TV monitor. Increase the Add Noise parameter to also add a grainy effect to the result.

Inputs:

Source: The clip to be processed.

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.

Lines Frequency: Default: 50, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
The frequency of scan lines on the screen. Increase for more lines, decrease for fewer.

Lines Sharpness: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the severity of the lines. Increase for sharper edges, or decrease for a more subtle effect. A sharpness of zero reduces the scan line effect to nothing.

Lines Angle: Default: 0, Range: any, Shared .
The angle in degrees of the scan lines. Set to 90 for vertical lines instead of horizontal. This parameter can be adjusted using the Lines Angle Widget.

Brightness: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of the result.

Offset: Default: 0, Range: any, Shared .
Adds this gray value to the result (or subtracts if negative). 0 has no effect, .5 is middle gray, and 1 is white.

Gamma: Default: 1.5, Range: 0.1 or greater, Shared .
Scales the brightness of the image by a curve using this gamma value, allowing adjustment of the middle gray values in the scan lines. This can help make the average brightness of the output match the input.

Smooth Source: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
If positive, the source clip is blurred by this amount before being processed.

Lines Shift: Default: 0, Range: any, Shared .
Offsets the position of the pattern of lines. A value of 1.0 shifts one entire scan line over, giving the same result as 0.

Color1: Default rgb: [1 1 1].
The 'brighter' color of the scan lines pattern.

Color0: Default rgb: [0 0 0].
The 'darker' color of the scan lines pattern.

Add Noise: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
If positive, this much black and white noise is added to the image.

Noise Freq Rel: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
The frequency of the noise, relative to the frequency of lines. This has no effect unless the Add Noise parameter above is positive.

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.
