Performs an edge detect operation twice giving a double stranded edge effect. Increase the Edge Smooth parameters for thicker edges.

In the Sapphire Stylize effects submenu.


Source:  The current layer.   The clip to be processed.


Edge Smooth1:   Default: 8,  Range: 0 or greater.
Increase for smoother edges for the first edge-detect.

Edge Smooth2:   Default: 0,  Range: 0 or greater.
Increase for smoother edges for the second edge-detect.

Subpixel Smooth:   Check-box,  Default: off.
Enables smoothing the edges by subpixel amounts. Use this for smoother animation of the Edge Smooth parameter.

Brightness1:   Default: 1,  Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the brightness of the initial edges.

Brightness2:   Default: 1.5,  Range: 0 or greater.
Scales the brightness of the result.

Saturation:   Default: 1,  Range: 0 to 10.
Scales the color saturation of the result. Increase for more intense colors. Set to 0 for monochrome.

Threshold1:   Default: 0,  Range: 0 or greater.
Subtract this value from the initial edges.

Threshold2:   Default: 0,  Range: 0 or greater.
Subtracts this value from the result. Increase to remove unwanted noise from minor edges.

Show:   Popup menu,  Default: Edges2.
Selects the output option.
Edges1:  shows just the first edge-detect. This can be useful for adjusting the Edge1 parameters without performing the second edge-detect.
Edges2:  shows the result of the double edge-detect.

Opacity:   Popup menu,  Default: Normal.
Determines the method used for dealing with opacity/transparency.
All Opaque:  Use this option to render slightly faster when the input image is fully opaque with no transparency (alpha=1).
Normal:  Process opacity normally.
As Premult:  Process as if the image is already in premultiplied form (colors have been scaled by opacity). This option also renders slightly faster than Normal mode, but the results will also be in premultiplied form, which is sometimes less correct.
