Feature request for the VIGNETTE Live Filter:  

1)  adding a button to allow the user to locate/place/relocate the "centre of the vignette" would enhance workflow.

2) adding a slider to allow user to adjust the inner brightness of the vignette would enhance workflow.

 

Thanks You!

I don’t know why this is neglected on certain filters. You can set the centre of a radial blur just by clicking a point on screen.
 

I found this thread while looking to see if this filter functionality had been requested for the circular halftone, which also lacks centre-setting abilities. I do hope all radial/circular filter types get this implemented.

Hello @spez,

you might look into these macros by David Straker:

They create very flexible vignettes in APh.

Cheers,

Thanks @dominik for the suggestion, but I was just observing that vignettes aren’t the only filter to need a centre setting option; I was actually building a circular halftone filter into a macro and was wishing I could move the centre. Tempted to utilise certain methods from your referral but it’s already quite a lengthy macro 😬 ...apologies if this is too off-topic, I shall say no more!

Resizing the canvas and moving the image effectively moves the centre of the halftone filter.

You can then merge the filter and clip canvas.

There may be other ways but no time to test right now, maybe later

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now was our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

@carl123 cheers, yeah that’s the workaround I opt for too when needed. For vignettes, you can add a fill layer filled with a radial gradient and set to an appropriate blend mode, but it’s still extra work - especially considering that DOF and Radial blur, as well as Twirl and Sphere distortions (I may be missing others) all have the ability to move their centres without resorting to canvas resizing/image positioning trickery. It would be quicker and neater if vignette and circular halftone filters included this option; it was an expectation that - I was surprised to discover - isn’t met.
