Thread: ppEffect collection

  1. #1

    Wink ppEffect collection

    Hi, since there is no documentation available for this yet, lets help ourselves.

    Here is a list of all the ppEffects I know so far. If anyone knows any effects not listed here, please share them with us.

    "colorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [brightness, contrast, gamma, [R, G, B, multiplier], [R, G, B, multiplier], [R, G, B, multiplier]];
    Cant give a more detailed description on the rgb-values, you'll have to play around with them a bit. First pair seems to add a tint, second is general colorbalance and the last pair is some sort of filter. But see for yourself.

    "dynamicBlur" ppEffectAdjust [blur];
    Full screen blur

    "radialBlur" ppEffectAdjust [blur_x,blur_y,start_x,start_y];
    Blur with seperate x,y values, wich fades away at the center of the screen.

    "filmGrain" ppEffectAdjust [strength, alpha, scale, blend-light, blend-dark, <boolean>no idea what this is for];
    ... well, cool for camera/Tv effects

    "colorInversion" ppEffectAdjust [R, G, B];
    name says it

    "chromAberration" ppEffectAdjust [amount_x, amount_y ,<boolean> exponential ?];
    this baby seems to shift the the color channels apart from each other, good for erm.... any sort of drug-effect.

    "wetDistortion" ppEffectAdjust [?];

    Thats that. Now as a goodie, I'll also post some ppEffect settings im using as examples. Should give you an idea of what is possible.

    My favourite:
    "colorCorrections" ppEffectEnable true; "chromAberration" ppEffectEnable true; "radialBlur" ppEffectEnable true;
    "colorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [1, 1, 0, [1.5,-1,-1.5,0.5], [5,3.5,-5,-0.5], [-3,5,-5,-0.5]]; "colorCorrections" ppEffectCommit 1;
    "chromAberration" ppEffectAdjust [0.01,0.01,true]; "chromAberration" ppEffectCommit 1;
    "radialBlur" ppEffectAdjust [0.02,0.02,0.15,0.15]; "radialBlur" ppEffectCommit 1;
    Turns your screen into an colorful infrared vision, blue=cold, yellow=hot... only that it doesn't actually show heat, it is still based on brightness but nevertheless it looks cool and with a bit of scripting an true IR-effect can also be achieved. We all know this, don't we ? Anyway its a bit of an change to the regular FLIRs out there

    "colorCorrections" ppEffectEnable true; "filmGrain" ppEffectEnable true;
    "filmGrain" ppEffectAdjust [0.1, -1, 0.1, 0.05, 2, false];  "filmGrain" ppEffectCommit 1; 
     "colorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [1, 0.75, 0, [0.8,0.9,1,-0.1], [1,1,1,2], [-0.5,0,-1,5]]; "colorCorrections" ppEffectCommit 1;
    Stalker anyone ? This may need some adjustments, contrast is a bit too high. It adds a bit of grain and gives everything a reddish tint aswell as more contrast.

    Now, go ahead surprise me, I wonder if there are any effects out there I've not yet came across.

    ppEffectDestroy _ppColor;
    assuming you assigned the effect the variablename _ppColor in the first place like so:

    _ppColor = ppEffectCreate ["ColorCorrections", 1999];

    Maybe I'm stupid, but i can't get the "dynamic blur" working. Could someone explain me step by step how to use it? Thanks in advance!

    "dynamicBlur" ppEffectEnable true; "dynamicBlur" ppEffectAdjust [5]; "dynamicBlur" ppEffectCommit 1;

    Should make your world very blurry.
