I’m looking for something that I think would make a lot of projects easier when dealing with anything art-based. I’d love a way to center objects (rasters, or, if possible (and preferably), vectors) by center of mass/centroid centering methods. I’m not sure of the mathematics behind centering vectors (might be easiest to just rasterize it temporarily) but for rasters its rather simple; just find the average (or weighted if applicable for greyscale) of all the pixels with a value.
This would solve the “play button issue”:
You can see the difference below (the one on the left is clearly “off” despite being perfectly “centered” by its rectangular bounding box):
This would be great if it could be extended to text, too (for example, when centering text that ends with L or something else “off-center”, it causes the entire text to feel off-center. Same for Title Case words being vertically centered.
I’m pretty new to Lightburn, however, might be able to take a crack at implementing this if someone could point me in the right direction! Looking forward to feedback on this
