Countdown to ProffieOS6 - Introducing “Style Options” and the new “Rotoscope” Style
I have two new pieces coming to ProffieOS6 and the OS6 library to show. This is my new “Rotoscope” style which is meant to mimic the Original Trilogy effect they used for lightsabers which combines a flicker with a subtle undulation of the blade’s power. I’ve built this version to use an AudioFlicker baseline so in addition to the motion of the effect the flickering intensity will be based on your specific font allowing this style to be used on different fonts and have a slightly different appearance on each based on the intensity of the hum and other sounds allowing it to mimic the font.
In addition, I’m using this style to introduce the new “Style Option” capability coming for OS6. “Style Options” allow you to build a single base effect with mutliple options that you can select so you can use once style in many different ways. In the case of this style, there are 4 “Style Options” built in:
- Default(0): Base Color + 50% Base Color
- 1: Base Color + Alt Color
- 2: 50% Base Color + Base Color
- 3: Alt Color + 50% Base Color
By selecting a different “Style Option” either through Edit Mode or in you presets.ini you will be able to change how the colors are used in the style to create different versions for each preset. And since Base Color and Alt Color are individually editable through Edit Mode you can combine different colors for each preset and apply them differently using the “Style Option” of your choice.
Note this is only one application of “Style Options” I have many more planned for the OS6 library to really let you take each style to the next level and give a single style endless uses. You will be able to set up “Style Options” to change speeds, intensity, color mixes, direction, and so much more that you’ll have exponential possibilities with each style.
