Custom Font Tools Updated to Release 2 for Gimp 2.10

Post#1 by skinnyhouse » 05 Oct 2018, 09:33

I have put together my latest updates for the filters in Custom Font Tools.

Edit: Artistic and Noise filter packs added 6/10.
Edit: Corrected wrong minimum tile size allowed for Glass Tile in dialog 7/10

Download, unzip and install to your plug-ins folder.

The only dialog change is for the effects filter - which adds a trim option to the shine effect.

This update also adds two distortion packs to the Custom Font Tools sub-menu - basically batch moding some of the new distortion effect plug-ins, available in 2.10, for Custom Fonts. The custom font filters do not provide exactly the same functionality as those available from Gimp's own filter menu - but they do save a lot of time working on individual layers.

The following examples use this character as their base

Some examples from Distortion Pack 1 (the filter parameters used are shown in the legend):
Using the Ripple effect:

Using the Wave effect:

Using the Wave effect with the 'constrained' option also applied:

Using the Shift effect:

Using the Wind effect:

Some examples from Distortion Pack 2 (with the filter parameters again shown in the legend):

Using the Video Degradation effect:

Using the Whirl & Pinch effect:

And finally using the mosaic effect:

All the filter options in each pack can, of course, be combined - it's a matter of playing about with the settings on a tester custom font layer. Have fun!

The Noise filter pack may be useful (in small doses) when you need to add a little texture to a custom font.

Using the same base character as above:
Base_ex2.jpg

With HSV noise added:

With Hurl added:

With Pick added:

and, lastly, with Spread added:

Another two examples, using various custom font filters, to produce a translucent styled font.
The background was used to create the cubism effect set with small tiles.
Basically Cubism/duplicate with vivid light mode to taste/add shine:

And this with a black outline to restrict the translucency to gaps only:
