Online Help for Chasys Draw IES: Automation - Scripting Transforms


Automation : Scripting Transforms
 

Commands

All commands for transforms start with “xform_”. Here’s the listing of the available commands and their syntax:

Command & Syntax Details
xform_flip direction; Flips the image. The direction of flip is set by the parameter direction [horz, vert].

xform_rotate angle, [sampling];

Rotates the image by angle [0..360]. If angle is “+90”, “+180” or “+270”, it performs the corresponding right-angled rotate. The second parameter, sampling [blocky, smooth], is optional.

xform_skew angle direction, [sampling];

Skews the image by angle [-90..90] in direction [horz, vert]. The third parameter, sampling [blocky, smooth], is optional.
xform_perspective angle direction, [sampling]; Performs perspective distortion of the image by angle [-90..90] in direction [horz, vert]. The third parameter, sampling [blocky, smooth], is optional.
xform_scale factor;

Scales the image heuristically by factor. Valid values for factor are 2, 3 and 4.

xform_stretch factor direction; Stretches the image by factor [0.001..1000] in direction [x-only, y-only, both, alternate]
xform_tile sx sy; Performs normal tiling by scaling the image by sx and sy. For example, setting both sx and sy to 2.0 will tile a 320*240 image to 640*480.
xform_kaleido sx sy; Performs kaleidoscope tiling by scaling the image by sx and sy. For example, setting both sx and sy to 2.0 will tile a 320*240 image to 640*480.
   

 

You can generate script code for most commands in Chasys Draw IES by using them while running the record function.
