Congratulations! :)

Technically, it's your second... ;)

Couple of notes before I can submit this. The Atom is incomplete. First of all, you need to create a directory called

Code: Select all

com.DavidKohen.StarGlow
In there goes your com.DavidKohen.StarGlow.atom and your file structure containing your files: Macros/Blur/StarGlow.setting

So you need to create, in com.DavidKohen.StarGlow, a subdirectory Macros and in there a subdirectory Blur containing StarGlow.setting.

A note on the Atom itself. When creating an Atom, you can do everything by hand if you insist, but at a minimum, open the Atom up in Atomizer (Reactor -> Tools -> Atomizer) to check if the Atom is valid. If it doesn't open at all (like yours :)) then there is a syntax error somewhere.

For the description, as some people pointed out in the dev topic, "inspired by Red Giant's "Star Glow" doesn't mean much. Please describe (even in a few words is fine) what the tool does, rather than referring to something that may or may not be known.

As for the Macro itself, there are a couple of parameters in there set to a non-default value (Brightness and Blend). Not that that will stop it from working, but it's not very clean...

When you're done, please zip the whole thing up and post here :)

Hope that helps! See if you can get it done before next year ;)

And submitted! First one of 2020! :cheer:

There was one small issue left - the path in the Atom file was missing the space in Star Glow.setting. Handy feature of Atomizer (and something I always do as a sanity check) is the refresh button that auto-updates the Deploy fields:

Image

Updated Atom:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] (com.DavidKohen.StarGlow.atom)
  1. Atom {
  2.     Name = "Star Glow",
  3.     Category = "Tools",
  4.     Author = "Bryan Ray and David Kohen",
  5.     Version = 1,
  6.     Date = {2020, 1, 1},
  7.     Description = [[This macro, was inspired by Red Giant's "Star Glow". It creates a glow Similar to the glare you get when you look at a bright light with you eyes squinted
  8. The Original setup was made by Bryan Ray and was made into a Macro by David Kohen with help from Bryan Ray, Andrew Hazelden and of course Pieter Van Houte.
  9.  Thank you ]],
  10.     Deploy = {
  11.         "Macros/Blur/Star Glow.setting",
  12.     },
  13. }
Thanks for sharing!

thank you! Very good tool!
Is it possible to change a couple of things pls?
Minor bug - When gain is 0 , it adds blur to image
Is it possible to add 'start count' value? or something like that
