Hi,

here's a new Fuse hot off the press. It's easier to show a picture than to explain what it does:
Posted Image

and another one:
Posted Image

By default it uses a nice rainbow gradient and combines the images in a way that adds up to the original when no transformation is done. This is perfect for chromatic aberration effects. Or to create light spectrum lens flare effects from your image's highlights (linear gamma works best, the Marcie examples were done this way).

It has screen or lighten modes as well and supports all kinds of gradients. But I haven't fully explored use cases for those. It might have a lot more uses than what I designed it for so if you have suggestions or think there's a bug, feel free to let me know.

(I'm secretly afraid that there's already such a plugin in Sapphires or Krokodove that I didn't know about... )

edit: updated version 1.2 fixes the aspect slider, adds x/y size and gamma correction

Looks good!
I used to make extreme chromatic aberrations with channel blurring, but this seems to be a more neat way!

I like the Master Factor control. It's on my wishlist to all the native tools, and I include such thing to my own macros.
Very convenient for post-tuning and especially, for animation!

The Aspect control doesn't work for me in Fu 6.32 b 1030.

Thanks, I'll investigate this.

seems like Fusion's merge doesn't support aspect after all even though there's a parameter in the sdk :-( I'll work around it.

Most probably, I wouldn't miss this parameter if it was just deleted :)

+True, i wouldn´t miss it too .. but It would be cool if you could control the X / Y scale separately :) .
Love this tool! Just love the way you can transition from boring white to a palette full colors in a psychedelic way, :mf_laughbounce2: Yeah!

but that's the problem. Fusion's merge function that is available in the sdk doesn't do x/y scale. But I can do a transform and subsequent merge instead. it'll be slower though.

Can't you just change the XScale/YScale of the input images?

I've updated the original post with version 1.2:
  • fix aspect slider
  • added separate X/Y size like in transform tool. what's different is the fact that size&aspect actually updates the x/y size sliders and vice versa.
  • ReduceGain slider is allowed for add mode (if NormalizeResult is disabled)
  • added gamma correction slider if your image isn't in linear gamma space (may create nicer-looking highlights in add mode)

Thanks, Dunn. why don't you post the video you did with it? I have no idea how you did it even though I wrote the tool :-D
