Sapphire Plug-ins for Autodesk: WarpRepeatMask

WarpRepeatMask

In the S_WarpsMask Plugin.

Transforms the source input multiple times and averages the results. The From and To parameters do not refer to time. They describe the two transformations in space that determine the sequence of repeated warps applied to each frame.

Inputs:

Source: The input clip to be warped.

Mask: The amplitude of warping is scaled by the values of this input clip. Gray values internally scale the warping amplitude rather than simply cross-fading between the effect and the original source to allow more continuous results at the Mask edges and more detailed control over the warping amounts. Only the red channel of this input is used. This input can optionally be blurred or inverted using the Blur Mask or Invert Mask parameters.

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.

From Z Dist: Default: 1, Range: 0.001 or greater.
The 'distance' of the From transformation. This zooms about the Center location when Shift is 0. Increase to zoom out, decrease to zoom in. This parameter can be adjusted using the From Transfm Widget.

From Rotate: Default: 0, Range: any.
The rotation angle of the From transformation, in degrees, about the center. This parameter can be adjusted using the From Transfm Widget.

From Shift: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
The horizontal and vertical translations of the From transformation. This can be used for directional motion. If it is non-zero the center location becomes less meaningful. This parameter can be adjusted using the From Transfm Widget.

Exposure Bias: Default: 0.5, Range: 0 to 1.
Determines the variable amount of exposure along the path between the From and To transformations. A value of 0 causes more exposure at the From end, 0.5 causes equal exposure along the path, and 1.0 causes more exposure at the To end. If you have bright spots on a dark background, a 0 value would cause the processed spots to be brighter at the From end and dark at the To end, and a 1.0 value would cause the opposite.

Steps: Integer,  Default: 3, Range: 2 to 100.
The number of times the input image is sampled along the path between the From and To transformations. More steps require more processing time.

To Z Dist: Default: 1.5, Range: 0.001 or greater.
The 'distance' of the To transformation. Increase to zoom out, or decrease to zoom in. This parameter can be adjusted using the To Transform Widget.

To Rotate: Default: 0, Range: any.
The rotation angle of the To transformation, in degrees, about the center. Note that if the From and To Rotate angles are very different, the interpolation between them will become less accurate. This parameter can be adjusted using the To Transform Widget.

To Shift: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
The horizontal and vertical translations of the To transformation. This can be used for directional motion. If it is non-zero the center location becomes less meaningful. This parameter can be adjusted using the To Transform Widget.

Warp Amount: Default: 1, Range: 0 or greater.
Adjusts the overall amount of warping by scaling the From and To transformations. Setting this to zero disables both transforms and leaves the image unchanged.

Filter: Check-box,  Default: off.
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.

Center: X & Y,   Default: [0 0], Range: any.
The center of rotation and zooming, in screen coordinates relative to the center of the frame. The shift values should be zero for this location to make sense. This parameter can be adjusted using the Center Widget.

Wrap: X & Y,  Popup menu,  Default: [ No No ].
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.

Blur Mask: Default: 0, Range: 0 or greater, Shared .
Blurs the Mask input by this amount before using. This can provide a smoother transition between the masked and unmasked areas.

Invert Mask: Check-box,  Default: off, Shared .
If enabled, inverts the mask input so the effect is applied to areas where the Mask is black instead of white.

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.

Combine Masks: Popup menu,  Default: Union .
Determines how to combine the Mocha Mask and Input Mask when both are supplied to the effect.
Union: Uses the area covered by both masks together.
Intersect: Uses the area that overlaps between the two masks.
Mocha Only: Ignore the Input Mask and only use the Mocha Mask.
