Effect Settings

This MADRIX Effect uses the following, individual controls:

Colors - Opens the Color Table. The default colors are Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, Magenta.
Learn more »Using Colors And Intensity
BPM - Defines the speed. The default value is 1500. Valid values range from 0 to 9999.
Learn more »Using BPM Control
Height - Defines the height of elements depending on the direction [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default value is 10. Valid values range from 0.01 to 100.
Width 1 - Defines the width of elements depending on the direction [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default value is 10. Valid values range from 0.01 to 100.
Pitch 1 - Defines the distance between elements depending on the direction [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default value is 10. Valid values range from 0.01 to 100.
Width 2 - Is available when selecting Register Z1, Z2, or Z3. Defines the width of elements [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default value is 10. Valid values range from 0.01 to 100.
Pitch 2 - Is available when selecting Register Z1, Z2, or Z3. Defines the distance between elements [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default value is 10. Valid values range from 0.01 to 100.
Frequency - Defines the rate. A value of 1 means that the complete wave is shown. The default value is 1. Valid values range from 0 to 100.
Amplitude - Defines the maximum oscillation of the elements in relation to the baseline. The default value is 100. Valid values range from -1000 to 1000.
Phase - Defines an offset that allows you to shift the waves compared to each other when combining at least 2 graphs in order to avoid overlapping [in % of the wave length]. The default value is 0. Valid values range from 0 to 100.
Peak - Defines the peak of the wave [in % of the wavelength]. It is only available for Draw Mode Triangle and Square. The default value is 50. Valid values range from 0 to 100.

 

 

Distribution - Allows you to choose a certain Distribution Mode for the specific parameter. Often, you can then define a minimum value and a maximum value.

Uniform - Each object has the same size.
Linear - A linear distribution is used to increase the size regularly.
Quadratic - The majority of objects will be smaller than the rest.
SQRT - Using a square root function the majority of objects will be larger.
Cubic - Uses a cubic distribution with mixed sizes.
Random - Sizes will be generated randomly.

RND - Generates random object sizes each time. This automatically activates Random Distribution Mode.

Direction/Mode - Allows you to choose the direction, including Look-At Type. This includes all directions for 2D and 3D mode. The default Direction is Left. Learn more »Using Directions

Shape - Allows you to choose a specific shape for objects. A certain Size is required before a shape becomes visible. This heavily influences the visual outcome of the effect. The default Shape is Rectangle Filled.

Edit Text - Allows you to freely enter any text to display when Shape Text is selected first. A new window opens. Learn more Edit Text

Draw Mode - Allows you to change the graph form, which influences how the effect is drawn [Sine, Absolute Sine, Cosine, Triangle, Square]. The default Draw Mode is Sine.

X-Axis Registers - Allows you to combine up to 3 graphs with each other regarding the X-Axis. Each Register influences the visual outcome. Simply choose a Draw Mode for each Register and set up the Amplitude. More settings will be available then for this Register. [Right Mouse Click > Reset restores the default settings of a Register.]

Z-Axis Registers - Allows you to combine up to 3 graphs with each other regarding the Z-Axis. Each Register influences the visual outcome. Simply choose a Draw Mode for each Register and set up the Amplitude. More settings will be available then for this Register. This is mainly relevant for 3D. [Right Mouse Click > Clear restores the default settings of a Register.]

Phase Registers - Allows you to combine up to 3 graphs with each other regarding the extruded phase. Each Register influences the visual outcome. Simply choose a Draw Mode for each Register and set up the Amplitude.  More settings will be available then for this Register. This is mainly relevant for 3D. [Right Mouse Click > Clear restores the default settings of a Register.]

 

 

Restoring The Default Settings

Restore Default Layer Settings - Restores the default settings of the Layer.
- All Layer Settings and Effect Settings will be restored to their default values.
- This does not include the MADRIX Effect selection, the Effect Parameter Chaser [which will be paused], or the Layer Macro [which will be stopped].

 

 

Edit Text

Choose Draw Mode Text in order to use text as elements of the graph.
Clock Edit Text to change the text settings.
 

 

A new window opens.
 

 

Change the following settings as required:

Text - Allows you to enter any text. Simply write something via your keyboard.
Aa - Opens a new window and allows you to choose a specific font, font size, and other font settings.


 

Rotation - Allows you to rotate the text [, 90°, 180°, 270°]. The default value is 0.
Splitting - Allows you to split your text.
None - Is the default value and does not apply any splitting.
Words - Splits your text using each word, adds line breaks, and displays each word below the other.
Characters - Splits your text using each character [letter], adds line breaks, and displays each character below the other.
Repeat Text - Uses your text continuously for each element of the graph.
Reverse Words - Displays the words of your text in reverse order.
Reverse Characters - Displays your complete text in reverse order, character by character.
