- New Features
Liquib 2.5 was built with a new compiler, which might slightly improve
performance. A Whisk Tool and a Plop Effect have been
added. Numerous other fixes and improvements. Further details follow:
Whisk Tool => The Whisk Tool
captures a portion of the source image where
the mouse is clicked. Then, as the mouse is dragged, the trailing edge of
that captured area is constantly painted on the screen, following the path of
the mouse. The Whisk Shape can be set to Box, Oval,
Diamond, Triangle, Lignt Stencil or Dark Stencil.
If one of the Stencil options has been chosen, the Whisk Shape is
determined by the relative lightness or darkness of the captured image.
With the Clustered Shapes option, a group of smaller Whisk shapes
is produced, instead of just a single Whisk.
Plop Effect => The Plop Effect
was inspired by the art of liquid painting
or floating art, in which paint is dropped or sprinkled onto a watery surface.
The paint then spreads and disperses, often combining in complex ways with other
colorful blobs of paint. Each mouse click produces a single paint Plop,
while clicking and dragging the mouse creates a trail of smaller Flecks of
paint. Plop/Fleck Method can be Displace, Mix, Mingle
or Tangle. Parameters are available to adjust the degree and magnitude
of variations around the paint edges, and to control how far and quickly the paint
drops will spread. The paint can be colored and blended according to a variety
As with all Liquib Effects, Plops and Flecks will
constantly move and evolve until they are finalized. Besides gradually
expandng, they might push and compress the surrounding image, slowly rotate or
appear to swirl and squirm.
