16.95 - Color Fill

Quick Reference to Scripting Command
a=COLORFILL(red, green, blue)
Items in CAPS are 0/1 or ranges with more options than just 0/1.
Ranges other than 0/1 are indicated by brackets, such as [0-2].



Operation Example — ellipse, Broad Edge Transparency
applied to elliptical selection, "Caribou" I-Shape

The Color Fill operation will fill the selected area with the specified color. The color is altered by moving the Red, Green, and Blue sliders, or by entering the appropriate values in the provided text entry fields. As the sliders are moved you will be able to view the changes to the color in the sample color preview window. After you have the desired color, you can then fill areas in the current view.

This operator can use Pixel Transfer Modes to generate output image and layer data. These modes add a great deal of flexibility to what you can do with this operator. Only operators that create new image or layer data use pixel transfer modes. Also, plugins may use them if the plugin designer takes care to use the plugin masked write services.


Operator Dialog

16.95.1 - Color Fill Controls

16.95.1.1 - Trends

Operator dialog controls that have a Trend button next to them offer animation functionality. Trend allows you to set that variable over a set of frames. Each frame of the animation can be thought of as a slice of time. The trends allow you to alter some, all, or none of the variables for a particular time slice. Variables that have multiple states can be set to any of a number of values in the trend. Variables that are either on or off can only have an on or off value in the trend. You will notice that the trend graphs have equidistantly spaced vertical lines. Each of these lines represents a frame in the animation. The number of frames can be altered using Sequence controls... in the TimeLine pull down menu. Animation lengths of 100 - 999 frames will be represented with a vertical bar being 10 frames, and animation length greater than 1000 frames will have a vertical bar for every 100 frames. Click here to view more information on Trends.

16.95.1.2 - Set Color

The Set Color button will access the Color Selection dialog, and allow you to select a color for the fill from the palette. The color that is selected will automatically adjust the RGB sliders and Fill Color Sample to reflect any selections that are made.
