Macros for Review: are them worth Reactor?

#1

Post by Millolab » Mon Jul 08, 2019 2:33 pm

Hello guys, I made a good number of macros lately. I have tweaked them and updated the UI... and I need some real world testing to see if they're worth being in reactor:

Here the tools:

FAST EXPO GLOW
This macro is based on the ExponentialGlow from Reactor. I made some changes to have faster render times and also added a Fibonacci mode (the glow spread is based on the Fibonacci sequence)

EXPO LIGHT WRAP same as the macro above, but tweaked to work as a light wrap. Here a video example



CHROMATIC DISPLACEMENT inspired by the RedGiant Plugin ($99), but free... :D Here a detailed video.



EDGE EXTEND Pretty self explanatory. You need to feed a despilled image and its alpha, as shown in the video above (expo light wrap). Here another example.



SPLINE BLUR A vector based tool, to blur along a path or Zoom. The spline have to be closed. it doens't work on an open spline. The mask needs to be soften a bit to get some nice results. You can use the "corner smoothing" slider when things get crazy.



HAZE Inspired by RedGiant Supercomp plugin. Nothing more than a lightwrap and "shadow" with an offset. BG and FG needs to be the same resolution.



VOLUME HAZE Same as above, but different effect.



I'd be glad if you could test them for me, and let me know what you think!

Excellent macros, lately I increasingly use FastExpoGlow. Thanks for the work!

Wow, awesome! Now it is as convenient as ExponentalGlow. Great job!
Can you explain about Fibonacci? How is it different from Exponential?

In the exponential, the blurs are multiplied by 1, 2,4,8,16,32,64,128... in the Fibonacci 1,1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 and so on. The Fibonacci is the more exponential one, actually.
