Introduction

MADRIX Effects have various controls to set up the preferred direction of effects.

Directions include all options, including 2D and 3D directions.
3D directions can be selected even when you are working in 2D Mode. But they only work correctly in 3D Mode.
Especially for 3D a multiple of choices is available. That includes so-called Look-At Types.

 

 

Overview

 

Direction - Simply choose a direction by selecting it. The arrows will point towards the direction the effect will take.

In the example to the left, the effect will move from up to down.

Front / Back - Allows you to choose the direction as well. This is mainly relevant for 3D.

To The Front - The effect will start in the back and move to the front.

To The Back - The effect will start in the front and move to the back.

 

Look-At Type - Allows you to choose from which side you want to look at the effect. This is mainly relevant for 3D.

Front - Positions the effect to see it mainly from the front.

Back - Positions the effect to see it mainly from the back.

Left - Positions the effect to see it mainly from the left.

Right - Positions the effect to see it mainly from the right.

Top - Positions the effect to see it mainly from the top.

Bottom - Positions the effect to see it mainly from the bottom.

Cross Mode - Activates Cross Mode. Certain MADRIX Effects can display the effect in two or more directions at the same time. [In addition, the Cross Width defines how much space each direction takes up].

Example 1: SCE Color Scroll with Cross Mode and a Cross Width of 50% will display 2 color scrolls moving in opposite directions.
Example 2: SCE Color Scroll with Cross Mode and a Cross Width of 20% will display 5 color scrolls moving in opposite directions.

None - Stops any movement.
