New Node Groups

Hey all!

Recently I got to upload quite a lot to the Panther Dynamics main website. While it's not large in file size, it certainly makes Blender's compositor just much more useful!

Today, I got to add two new additions. While they essentially perform the same task, one allows for scene integration and the other is traditional in its approach. I'm talking about pixelation!

Pixelation is, like any other style, used for various things. Often when people think of pixelation, they think of pixel art, 8bit games, cencorship or a clever filter for posters or shows that have some sort of cyber theme. The great news of these two new additions is that they allow for any of those purposes and it's totally procedural - which made the file size even smaller than it could've been!

To illustrate them, I rendered the same scene (using the term loosely, hehe), to show the difference between them:


Traditional pixelation has a fuzzy edge and pixelates neighboring objects or elements as well.


And on the other hand, Integrated Pixelation means that only the object itself gets pixelated. This is a much more advanced approach and to make it easier to do, I used Material Index to make things easier (it stays the same regardless of depth).
I don't know specifically why GOD put it on my heart to do these two specifically, but I do believe it means that someone out there needs this kind of filter for some reason - after all, HE knows what we need before we do.

Do make sure you check out the page with all the other nodes to see what all you can use! :D

You'll find there to be around 30 nodes covering 3D processing and format conversion, compositing effects, video filters, and some traditional image filters. Not convinced? Check out this video:



Biggest thanx to GOD for helping me with this. Without HIM, none of this would be possible! :D

Know JESUS yet? GOD is reaching out to you through these videos. HE loves you more than you can imagine and wants you to know HIM. Not because HE's lonely, but because HE loves you and paid a heavy price to enable you to go to Heaven, where HE is. See, we all have sinned in some way shape or form. That makes us guilty before GOD. If you have ever said that you hated someone, in GOD's standard, you have committed murder (James 4). If you've ever looked on a person with lustful thinking, you've already committed fornication with them in your heart and you are then guilty of sexual impurity. If you were to face GOD on judgement day, saying: "I was a good person" will be a void argument, just like it would be before a human judge. GOD knew that we would have to pay that penalty and that we could not pay it, even if we tried, but sent JESUS to pay the price for us. Your sins were put on HIM and the forgiveness that is there for you was by no means cheap - the cross was not padded and comfortable, neither was the death.
But, HE was raised up on the third day (after being crucified) and finished the work so that we may enter through HIM paying the penalty we were supposed to pay, but it is only valid for you, if you accept it and live for HIM.
If that is you today, please, follow this prayer:
"JESUS, I believe that YOU are real and I believe YOU died for me and was raised on the third day for me. Please forgive me for my many sins. I make YOU the LORD of my life, full time and to fill me with YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. Teach me how to live for YOU, help me become what YOU have made me to be, in JESUS' Name! Amen!"

It gives you access to free Bible translations, free teaching videos and more. Remember, this is a decision with eternal consequence, choose life, choose JESUS. :D

Have a great one!!!

Thank YOU!!!!!!
