MAKE A KALEIDOSCOPE
Kaleidoscope 2.1 is a plugin which proceeds to multiple symmetries to obtain beautiful patterns.
Since the version 2, this plugin proposes three spinning effects:
Mirror: traditional effect. Consecutive sectors are symmetric.
Copy: takes a sector and repeat it. Transition between consecutive sectors are antialiased.
Blend: turn the complete image, several times; and realize a blend.
Description of main controls:
Petals/Sectors: corresponds to number of sectors in the pattern. For the “Mirror” effect, one petal corresponds to two symmetric sectors.
Rotate: to turn pattern.
Zoom Out: to reduce pattern.
Offset Box: to vary pattern. This box contains up to 3 parameters. We suggest to press the “Random” button ….
Brightness/Contrast: (“blend” effect). Mixing image’s colours induce a loss of contrast. Brightness/Contrast controls allow to compensate this loss.
