Scripts for the GIMP

FireAnim v0.6 - 16. March 2001
I've merged a few (good!) contributions, and figured I better put them up. Now, also for GIMP 1.2! (Yeah, I know, about time.) :) Basically, FireAnim takes an image (with an alpha-channel), and sets it on fire. ;-) The user can specify how many frames should be used, and which gradient to use to color the flames. The defaults ought to work nicely most of the time, though. (It hides under <Image>/Script-Fu/Animators/FireAnim) BTW, here's a tiny tutorial, which explains the basic use.
Download:
- fireanim.scm - For GIMP 1.0
- fireanim-1.1.scm - For GIMP 1.1
- fireanim-1.2.scm - For GIMP 1.2
- fireanim-gradient - Useful if you want a background image.

New 8. July 1999: Cameron Gregory has put up www.flamingtext.com to generate animations online! Try it!

GIMPressionist v0.99.4 - 9. Aug 1999
The GIMPressionist has it's own page, so I wont bother to write much here. To put it short, it paints! Check out the images to the left, and you'll get the picture. Anyways, click here to go get it!

Cryptiq v0.0 - 3. Feb 1999
...lacking a better name, and since what it does is a bit cryptic. ;-) It's not released yet, but I'll try to get it out soon. To some extent it does the same as GIMPressionist, but not quite; this one tries to rebuild the original image by "stamping" it with various other objects, e.g. small balls as shown on the previews to the left. I've put up a page for it, too.

PencilSketch v0.0 - 4. Feb 1999
I've always wanted to create a program that draws something like a sketch out of an image. Not even remotely perfect, this is at least as close as I've come for now. I'll just polish up the code a bit (and add a GUI) before I release it...

Sphere Designer v0.0 - 24. Aug 1999
Soon to be released. It is a tool to create nice spherical objects, for bullets etc. - quite inspired by the Kai's Power Tools equivalent. Behind the scenes, there is a ray-tracer at work, for very realistic lighting effects. (Maybe I'll throw in other objects as well, but don't count on it...) New: It's own page. :-)
