First script to use new APIs in Gimp 2.10 (at last, the APi to stroke paths in "line" mode...). More or less a rewritten neon-path.

   

At the usual place. Enjoy.

Updated to add a Reverse gradient option.

Nice one.

Circles in particular come out good.

Had to be the very first thing I tried, which gave this rounded effect to the right side triangle vertex.
Not been able to get that again with single triangles.

Looked like this: https://i.imgur.com/ZvEiiXf.jpg

the path attached if you want to try it.

I opened triangle.svg in Inkscape. That right hand note is not a sharp corner node. It is a smooth node which means that the lines have a curve to them. Small and not really visible, but there.

Yeah, must have 'pulled' it on that vertex. https://i.imgur.com/bUuwMs1.jpg

Should have been in polygonal mode, more haste, less speedWink

Pretty cool to create bevel effects....

* Text-to-path
* Select, from path and invert selection (ie select outside of text)
* On a white layer, G-A-P (FG-to-BG, using the default Black/White)
* Lighting effect, using above layer as bump map

Mind blown! I've been searching for various ways to create home-made gradient maps, and re-read this last post and quite by accident, discovered a new way to make 3D text, following your above instructions to a T with ONE difference: after you create the inverted selection, move the saved path just slightly lower and diagonally from the selection, using the path to select GAP and you get results like this.

using the path to select GAP

What does mean GAP? What is GAP?
