Quick Overview

Now with MFR, M1 and curve modulation support. Recursive mosaic subdivides the grid further to preserve or discard as much image detail as you like. Useful for novel pixelization effects or jpeg artifacts simulation.

How it works

Recursive mosaic divides the image into a grid and further subdivides the squares (or rectangles) until it reaches the specified detail level. This makes the image look pixelated, yet important image details can be preserved.

Available parameters rundown

  • Channels allow you to specify which color channels should the effect be applied to. This can be one of:
    • Luminosity - use all color channels in sync
    • RGB - use color channels separately
    • red, green, blue and alpha - the effect is applied only to the selected channel
  • Mosaic intensity determines how blocky the image should be. 0 preserves the original image, 1 allows only the largest blocks specified by the grid
  • Intensity Source allows you to use a different layer (or a track in Premiere) as a source for the mosaic effect
  • Grid Width - the number of initial horizontal subdivisions of the mosaic
  • Grid Height - the number of initial vertical subdivisions
  • Maximum Iterations - limits the number of recursions of the algorithm. Lower values generate only large blocks, larger values produce finer sub-blocks.
  • New parameters in v1.2.0. Default values are backward compatible.
  • Curve - specifies how the block complexity is mapped to the mosaic threshold. When the threshold value is below mosaic intensity, it's displayed with solid average color. Otherwise, the process repeats in new subdivided blocks. (details in the manual)
  • Curve Phase - offsets the curve by a set amount of degrees. (details in the manual)
  • Curve Smoothness - helpful for smoothly connecting the beginning and the end of discontinuous curves (linear ramps and exponentials) or smoothing out a triangular curve.
  • Curve Graph - visualizes the curve mapping for your convenience.

    Geometric Filter

    Geometric Filter turns footage into a geometric approximation. It does so by using our custom proximity matching algorithm, which gives it a bit of a human touch, as it can trace contours and similar regions.

    The results are somewhat similar to what you get by using the so-called "style transfer" machine learning algorithms, but with much finer control over the result.

    The plugin is aimed at artistic audiences who wish to simulate hand-drawn styles in music videos, visualizations, etc. and for VJs.
