These are some great suggestionsSadler wrote:An effect that plays a video or image overlaid.
A SVG vector import and extrude effect.
Delayed tile effect with mirroring and sliding.
Radial/linear repeater with spread, scale, rotate params
A shape (circle, star, hexagon etc) array effect that adopts the clip colour (with extrusion?)
Light streaks with audio reaction.
Now i get it, you want these effects and transformations on the mask, I am not sure i can access that the same way as the mask would work. for animated mask I would use layer blend modes you have full control then. From what i have been reading Resolume 5 will offer more options and parameters for masks.DayVeeJay wrote:I'd love to see a plugin that allows a user to load a png file for use as a mask. In addition I'd like to have parameters to adjust the scale, position, Z rotation and crop of this mask. A useful feature to this would include a checkbox to make the "background" black or transparent. For example... If a mask is scaled down to 10% the normal content will begin to show around it. With this feature enabled, everything will be black/transparent except for the alpha channel within the boundaries of the image. When I say transparent I mean that the layer below it will show through.
Another useful plugin would be an advanced version of vignette to fade edges. I did an install last week on a curved DJ booth that was basically a 6ft tall cylinder. The left/right edges are almost parallel with the projection. This caused some really jagged edges. I tried using the vignette effect but was only able to get three sides fading as I'd like. I suspect this had something to due with the projector being mounted off center (my knowledge of resolume tells me otherwise). Anyways, it'd be really cool to have a fade to black/transparent effect where you could adjust each of the four sides. Added bonus is the ability to set one side, click a button and those settings get copied to the other three sides. Cheers!

I think that by default, the black will be see through but you can reverse the mask by using the button of the mask. Resolume will stretch the mask to fit the size of the clip so it's best to have your png be the same size as your clip to have a predictable mask.DayVeeJay wrote:I'd love to see a plugin that allows a user to load a png file for use as a mask.
