Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: TextureFolded

TextureFolded

In the S_Textures Plugin.

Creates an abstract texture resembling folded cloth or liquid that can be animated to give a dynamic turbulent effect. The Fold Speed parameters cause the pattern to automatically undulate over time.

Inputs:

None

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.

Frequency: Default: 4, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The spatial frequency of the texture. Increase to zoom out, decrease to zoom in.

Frequency Rel X: Default: 1, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The relative horizontal frequency of the texture. Increase to stretch it vertically or decrease to stretch it horizontally.

Octaves: Integer,  Default: 1, Range: 1 to 10.
The number of summed layers of noise. Each octave is twice the frequency and half the amplitude of the previous. A single octave gives a smooth texture. Adding octaves makes the result approach a fractal (1/f) noise texture.

Seed: Default: 0.432, Range: 0 or greater.
Used to initialize the random number generator. The actual seed value is not significant, but different seeds give different results and the same value should give a repeatable result.

Shift Start: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
Translation offset of the texture. Since the texture is procedurally generated it can be shifted with no repeating units or seams occurring.

Fold Amp: Default: 72, Range: any.
The angle of the folding distortions.

Fold Freq: Default: 0.5, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The frequency of the noise used for the folding distortions.

Fold Octaves: Integer,  Default: 1, Range: 1 to 10.
The number of octaves of noise to use for the folding distortions.

Fold Start: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
The offset of the folding effect.

Fold Speed: X & Y,   Default: [1 0], Range: any.
The speed of the animated folding effect. If non-zero, the folding effect automatically undulates at this rate.

Brightness1: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the brightness of Color1. Increase for more contrast.

Color1: Default rgb: [1 1 1].
The color of the 'brighter' parts of the texture. The colors of the result are determined by an interpolation between Color0 and Color1.

Color0: Default rgb: [0 0 0].
The color of the 'darker' parts of the texture.

Offset0: Default: 0, Range: any.
Adds this value to color0. Decrease to a negative value for more contrast.

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.
