Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: WarpPuddle

WarpPuddle

In the S_Warps Plugin.

Warps the source clip by a pattern of concentric waves. The Phase Speed parameter causes the waves to automatically move outwards from the center over time. Adjust the Inner and Outer Radius parameters to limit the area where the waves appear. Increase the Inner and Outer softness for smoother transitions between where the waves appear and do not appear.

Inputs:

Source: The input clip to be warped.

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.

Center: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
The center of the puddle, in screen coordinates relative to the center of the frame. This parameter can be adjusted using the Center Widget.

Frequency: Default: 10, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The frequency of the waves. Increase for more waves, decrease for fewer. This parameter can be adjusted using the Frequency Widget.

Rel Height: Default: 0.75, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The relative height of the concentric wave pattern.

Amplitude: Default: 0.1, Range: any.
Scales the amount of warping distortion. Increase for more severe distortion.

Rotate Puddle: Default: 0, Range: any.
Rotates the puddle pattern by this many counter-clockwise degrees after the Rel Height stretching has been applied. This has no effect when Rel Height is 1. This parameter can be adjusted using the Rotate Widget.

Inner Radius: Default: 0, Range: any.
The distance from the puddle center where the wave distortion is phased in. No waves are generated inside this radius. This parameter can be adjusted using the Inner Radius Widget.

Inner Softness: Default: 0.1, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The width of the region at the Inner Radius over which the wave distortion is phased in.

Outer Radius: Default: 1.5, Range: 0 or greater.
The distance from the puddle center where the wave distortion is phased out. No waves are generated outside this radius. This parameter can be adjusted using the Outer Radius Widget.

Outer Softness: Default: 0.4, Range: 0.01 or greater.
The width of the region at the Outer Radius over which the wave distortion is phased out.

Z Dist: Default: 1, Range: 0.01 or greater.
Scales the 'distance' of the image. Values greater than 1.0 move it farther away and make it smaller. Values less than 1.0 move the image closer and enlarge it. Zooming in slightly can sometimes be used to hide edge artifacts.

Filter: Check-box,  Default: on.
If enabled, the image is adaptively filtered when it is resampled. This gives a better quality result when parts of the image are warped smaller.

Phase Start: Default: 0, Range: any.
The phase shift of the waves.

Phase Speed: Default: 1, Range: any.
The speed of the waves. If this is positive the waves automatically travel outwards from the center at this rate.

Wrap: X & Y,  Popup menu,  Default: [ Reflect Reflect ].
Determines the method for accessing outside the borders of the source image.
No: gives black beyond the borders.
Tile: repeats a copy of the image.
Reflect: repeats a mirrored copy. Edges are often less visible with this method.

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.
