edge detect (pencil)

what is it?
this little plug can produce some neat effects. what it does is very simple: it scans the frame for hard contrast, and when it finds it, marks it in a certain color. this alone can be used for some cool contrast enhancements, but is only half the magic. you can also tell the plug to only use two colors: one for the edges it detects, and another for everything else. the result, when used correctly, turns a clip into something that looks astonishingly like a pencil drawing. thus, you can convert your movie into a two-color cartoon.

what should I use it for?
use this plug whenever you you need some ‘different’ contrast enhancement, or want to turn your movie into a quasi pencil-drawn animation.
