Pixel Scape (tm) turns your image into an isometric pixel landscape. A height map - extracted according to the user-specified color model/channel - is used to isometrically extrude and shade the pixels.Color models: (1) HLS, (2) HSB, (3) HSY, (4) Lab, (5) RGBVarious height-modulated color fx can be applied to pixels, including HSL shifts, outline drawing and height fade (now legacy mode only).Tips:- 'LAYERS' directly affects rendertime! Keep it low for previews.- Only activate the slower LEGACY MODE when you need H.Fade!- Use the 'Size, pixels' slider to control the amount of pixelization.- 'OUTLINE Color' controls outline brightness.- Set 'OUTLINE Width' to 0 to disable outlines.- Set 'H.Hue', 'H.Saturation' and 'H.Lightness' to 50 to remove all color variation.- Set 'Roundness' to 50 for completely heightmap controlled pixel corners.
