16.33 - Pixelize

Quick Reference to Scripting Command
a=PIXELIZE(red, green, blue, width, height, edge)
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

The Pixelize operation will create rectangular regions that are the average brightness of the underlying pixels in that region. The overall effect is similar to zooming an image to the point where only pixels are visible. You can control the width and height of the pixels as well as the edge color of the pixels. Due to its rectangular nature, this operation is best suited for use with the Rectangle or Entire Image area selection modes.

16.33.1 - Pixelize Controls

16.33.1.1 - 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.

16.33.1.2 - Edge Color Preview Window

This preview window will display the color of the edge color that is to appear on the edges of the pixels. This color will change as the Red, Green, and Blue values are altered. As the RGB controls are altered the Background color preview will be updated to reflect the changes. Pressing "Set Color" will bring up F/x Color Selection Dialog.
