ZigZagCommand Class

Radially distorts the image by creating waves that twist the image around a specified center. This command is available in the Imaging Pro and above toolkits.
public class ZigZagCommand : RasterCommand 
Public Class ZigZagCommand  
   Inherits RasterCommand 
public ref class ZigZagCommand : public RasterCommand   
  • As an example, if you use the following image:

    And you were to call ZigZagCommand using the following settings:

    Parameter Value
    Amplitude 47
    Attenuation 92
    Frequency 13
    Phase -162
    CenterPoint (192, 82)
    FillColor Black
    Flags Color | RadialWave

    The following figure results:

    As another settings, if you use the same settings except you use the PondRippleWave flag, the following figure results:

  • If the image has a region, the effect will be applied on the region only.

  • This command supports 12-bit and 16-bit grayscale and 48-bit and 64-bit color images. Support for 12-bit and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64 bit color images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This command does not support signed data images.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.

Run the ZigZagCommand on an image and applies the ZigZag filter.
