Precise Gaussian Blur - linear or logaritmic threshold scale?

Post by davidh » July 11th, 2018, 11:46 am

The Threshold slider values do not agree with its position on the scale.

- move the slider to the middle of the scale (25%) and click OK
- reopen the dialog -> the slider is now at the position corresponding to 25% on a linear scale
- click on the slider -> the value changes to about 6% of a logaritmic scale

While we're talking about this transformation... Shift+clicking on the amount mask (reducing the amount to 0%) does not seem to be changing the little preview image.

I believe that problem was fixed recently in the 8-Jul-2018 update.

Well, I went back and installed the .msi file (I've only be updating with the executable lately...), with 11-Jul-2018. In both Normal and Chroma Only modes, Shift+click on the amount mask doesn't make a difference to the little preview window (on the transformation window).

Shift+click works fine with the other Blur transformations (where applicable). Found one more thing - with Zoom Blur, it takes two clicks on the cancel button to stop the transformation, at which time you get a red image with the word "error" on it. You have to cancel out of the transformation to try again with new parameters.

(additional edit): Actually, clicking on Cancel to stop Precise Gaussian also results in a red image:

Double-clicking on the red image to re-open the transformation resulted in this:

I fixed the Shift-Click on Amount for Precise Gaussian for the next release - it was being updated but not redrawn.

I am aware of the Cancel issues.
