Oh..wow..that looks...crazy! :D
How does it work for placing into, let's say eyes or some custom shape, with masks?
This sure looks pretty. Coming for 0.94?

lol I have no idea. You can mix it up a bit....make some sprites and give them the 'erase' effect...and then get them to render into the visualizer...the erase effect gets carried over and therefore u can cut out shapes instead of just adding them in...if thats what u meant by masks.

Anyway we'll see what happens :)

OMG! That's awesome! The pentagram; not the other stuff. :lol: Still, it's all looking pretty good, and I hope to see all of it built into 0.96.4!

The pentagram runs fine on my computer, and the others run without any slowdown. Heck, I ran them all at the same time while typing this. Very nice performance rate. I would use the flame effect for torches on my main menu screen, and I've seen similar effects to the swirl used in XBMC... Xbox Media Center.

Hehe yeah it should make some interesting effects...even just having it in the background and when u move the mouse over text you use the action

'on mouse over menutext'
- Paste menutext into flame

And then the menu item itself catches on fire when u move the mouse over it! :D

Looking sharp :) I can't wait to play with this.

[quote="David":gb8pcz15]btw do u think 'visualizer' is a good name for this plugin? [/quote:gb8pcz15]

Hmm... "Visualizer" is kind of ambiguous. It could mean anything. How about "Plasma?" It gives you a better idea of the effect. Because, you know... it's kinda like fire only you can make it be whatever color you want.

Maybe call it "Plasma Visualizer" because it lets you visually create plasma like effects :D

I know!!! Flame object deluxe :mrgreen: We would get soo many "hey, you're just copying mmf and kisguru! I'll sue you!" if you named it that ;) Seriously though. I think Visualizer is great, since you can't really say what it is.

A few titles for the effect... off the top of my head:
"Super Mega Particle Movement Thingy"
"Particle Visualizer"

Really, I think particle is taken by something else?
"Wavy Prettiness" :roll: Good?

It looks most like plasma to me. So, I vote for just Plasma or Plasma Visualizer.

Could maybe also use Elements or such in the title, since it seems you could make fire, water, clouds, smoke, dust, etc.

Plasma it is!

I like Visualizer but its too long...I like plugin names to be short because its easier for people to type and remember.
