This plugin stretches the edges of the layer to fill in empty spaces. Useful when adding camera shake for example. Can be used as an alternative to the motion-tile method for creating camera shake.

As you can see, motion tile can lead to oddly-shaped tessellations in the edges of the image. However, YY_MorphShake simply stretches the far edges, eliminating the strange shapes.

Due to the stretching, YY_MorphShake behaves poorly when dealing with geometric shapes and parallel lines, as they will be distorted.

Here are the parameters:

  • Dimensions: dimensions of the image, don't touch this as it is set automatically
  • Offset: Use this to move the image around (alt-click the stopwatch to add wiggle, etc)
  • Border Size: How big the stretched area will be (in percentage)
  • Show Border: Render a red overlay over the area subject to stretching
  • High Quality: Enable for bilinear interpolation (disable for faster rendering)
