Focus Blur plug-in is blurring effect, a kind of called DoF. This software makes a out of focus with luminosity and depth, like a sight or lenses. It can be used with depth map, depth fakes and shine effect. Also it can work as simple and applicable blur.

GIMP Version:

I am unable to compile the plugin on Mac OS 10.5.8 with Fink-installed Gimp 2.6.10. Regardless of the system, it looks to me like something is missing from the source since undefined variables (with names implying they're internal to the focusblur source) are referenced. From a cursory reading of the source, they might only be icons for the GUI, but am I missing something, or is the source missing something?

Making all in src
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.. -I/sw/include/glib-2.0 -I/sw/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/sw/include/gimp-2.0 -I/sw/include/glib-2.0 -I/sw/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/sw/include/gtk-2.0 -I/sw/lib/gtk-2.0/include -I/sw/include/atk-1.0 -I/sw/include/cairo -I/sw/include/pango-1.0 -I/sw/include/freetype2 -I/sw/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/X11/include -I/sw/include -I/sw/include -g -O2 -MT focusblurstock.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/focusblurstock.Tpo -c -o focusblurstock.o focusblurstock.c
focusblurstock.c:63: error: ‘focusblur_model_flat’ undeclared here (not in a function)
focusblurstock.c:64: error: ‘focusblur_model_spherical’ undeclared here (not in a function)
focusblurstock.c:65: error: ‘focusblur_model_gaussian’ undeclared here (not in a function)
focusblurstock.c:66: error: ‘focusblur_model_ring’ undeclared here (not in a function)
focusblurstock.c:67: error: ‘focusblur_model_concave’ undeclared here (not in a function)

focusblurstock.c... this reads like these are some icons. A header or source file containing them is usually generated by the gdk-pixbuf-csource tool, and if this fails, then they are undeclared.

That is indeed what happened. It compresses the icons and puts them into header files, and it failed under Mac OS X. Worked fine in Linux, so I just copied it. Might just be my goofy problem, but it works great now!

I think this plug-in would be totally awesome, but my computer says it is by an unknown publisher and I cannot download it.


note that you will need:
- "intltool" 0.36 or more recent,
- "libglib2.0-dev"

- go in terminal
- go in your file focusblur-3.2.6 unzipped
- then tape
- and
sudo make install

@ Dancing. i think the real problem is that you may use Windows Xp or Vista while the link is for linux (and/or to compile by yourself, but few user on windows want compile ) There is a recent windows version ready but for some reason the link is missed in the descrition. may be also listed here on this side :i'can't remember where i found i may only remember that was compiled by Michael Shoemaker, and that is slower then the linux verson (technically because was compiled without Flex) but when i used worked at decent speed . I i found a link i will post here but i am sure with Google you may found it

This plugin is totally sick - you can get fancy stuff like sparkle effects based on luminosity and it's easy to create a depth map in GIMP if you don't already have one on hand. Marc

here the link Is possible add the link also in the plugin description on top?
