Select a free Storage Place. In this example, we have selected Storage 1 and Place 1.


Choose and select SCE Wave / Radial from the drop-down list of effects.


Click on the Layer button and choose New. A second Layer will be created automatically.


Select the effect SCE Graph for the new Layer.


In the Preview of MADRIX, you can now see a white wave with a colorful graph in the foreground as shown in the following picture.


Please select the first Layer again (with its label Wave / Radial). Click on the Blind button B (the button should illuminated in red now). As a result, you will only see the SCE Graph effect.

Note: If you are only using 2 Layers, activating Blind Mode on the Wave / Radial Layer is equal to an activated Solo Mode on the Graph Layer.


Click the Blind button B again. In this way, you will disable Blind Mode again and you should be able to see both the Radial and the Graph.
Click the Solo button S (the button should illuminated in green) and you will only see the Radial.


Here are further tips when working with Blind Mode and Solo Mode:

Note: If you have selected Blind Mode and Solo Mode on the same Layer, you will see the Layer in Solo Mode. That means the priority of Solo Mode is higher.

Note: If you work with Mix Modes and Solo Mode on a Layer, you will see the effect without the Mix Mode.


Congratulations! You can now create effects with the advantage of using the Blind Mode and Solo Mode.
