Filter to create a new image simulating a CROCHET LOOK of the INPUT LAYER.

This script is meant as an automatic in-betweener when doing animation using paths, but there are other uses (the image above was obtained by merging the intermediate paths). You can obtain some some fun effects (for instance, moirés, by generating very dense intermediate paths and stroking them with sub-pixel widths).

Neon Path

A quickie to transform any path into a neon sign, and more generally to draw a gradient across a path:

Define path. For text: use “stroke” fonts, and “path from text” in the text tool. Define current gradient, left color as darkest color, right color as lightest.  Plugin will create layer with neon rendering of path If a “Glow value is used, a second layer is generated with a blurred image.

Shape Paths

This is a collection of Script-Fus that create Paths in the form of geometric shapes. Squares, rectangles, rounded rectangles, circles, ellipses, ovals, polygons, stars, flowers, gears, triangle waves, square waves, and sine waves are currently supported.

SG Warped Text

This script will warp text to fit inside a four-point “Bezier patch”. The bezier patch is created with the Path Tool by first placing an anchor where the upper-left corner of the text should go, followed by three more anchors running clockwise around the perimeter.

Once your shape path is created, running the script on any text layer will result in a new path.

Path Waves

Renders a path along sine, square and triangle waves. Allows asymmetrical waves and supports the rendering of two distinct paths.

As usual, it requires Python support, and appears in the right click menus on paths in the Paths dialog (“Decorate/Periodic wave/”)
