Effect Settings

This MADRIX Effect uses the following, individual controls:

Colors - Opens the Color Table to specify the colors. The default color is White.
Learn more »Using Colors And Intensity
Shapes - Opens the Shape Table to specify the shapes. The default color is Rectangle Filled.
Learn more »Using Shapes [Shape Table]
BPM - Defines the speed. The default value is 1500. Valid values range from 0 to 9999.
Learn more »Using BPM Control
Size - Defines the size of objects [Width, Height, Depth]. The default values are 1, 1, 1. Valid values range from 0.1 to 1000.
Length - Defines how long the trace of a drop is [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default value is 10. Valid values range from 0 to 100.
Rotation - Defines the rotation of objects in X, Y, and Z [in °]. The default values are 0, 0, 0. Valid values range from -180 to 180.
Displacement - Defines the amount of movement distortion. The default value is 0. Valid values range from 0 to 100.
Alpha Mix - Defines the upper limit of how much alpha is added to each drop [in %]. Alpha Mix will be visible when using additional Layers. The default value is 100. Valid values range from 0 to 100.
Count - Defines the number of objects displayed at once. The default value is 10. Valid values range from 1 to 100.

 

Pitch 1 - Defines the first distance between objects depending on the direction [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default setting is 0. Valid values range from 0 to 100.

Pitch 2 - Defines the second distance between objects depending on the direction [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default setting is 0. 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.
Random - Sizes will be generated randomly.

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

Length Offset - Defines if an offset is added to the trace of a drop [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default setting is 0. Valid values range from 0 to 100.

Continuous Rotation - Animates the shapes and rotates them around the corresponding axis permanently.

Rotation Origin Type - Defines the point of origin of the applied rotation.

Rotation Offset - Defines if an offset is added to the rotation of a drop [in % of the Matrix Size]. The default setting is 0. Valid values range from 0 to 100.

Displacement Speed - Is only available for Displacement. Allows you to choose to speed in which the distortion affects the visuals. The default setting is 10.0.

Displacement Distribution - Is only available for Displacement. Is applied in dependence of the direction that is chosen. Allows you to choose the area the distortion is applied to [Uniform, Linear Increasing, Linear Decreasing, Triangle]. The default setting is Uniform.

Invert - Inverts the position of objects.

Mirror - Mirrors objects by creating duplicates on the opposite position.

Direction - Allows you to choose the direction of the movement. The default setting is Down. Learn more »Using Directions

Direction - Allows you to choose the direction of the movement [To The Front or To The Back]. This is mainly relevant for 3D. The default setting is Down. Learn more »Using Directions

Rendering Mode - Defines how objects are rendered. Each mode may enable additional settings [such as additional Shapes]. Choose from 2 different modes. The default setting is Simple.
- Simple - Prioritizes processing speed over rendering possibilities.
- Extended - Prioritizes rendering possibilities over over processing speed. This mode may require more performance.

Mode - Allows you to choose the mode in which way objects are generated [Random, Linear, or Ping Pong]. The default setting is Random.

 

 

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].
