Select an empty Storage Place. In this example, it is Storage 1 and Place 1.


Now, select SCE Radial / Wave from the drop-down list of effects.


Change BPM to 1000 and Length to 25



Click Map button on top of the Effect Section


A new window, the Map Settings, will be opened.


Now, please click the Preset button in the Tiling section on the right-hand side and select Top Left from the drop-down list.

Have a look at the Previews of MADRIX. You can see that the SCE Radial effect is located in the upper left corner and the rest of the LED matrix is black.


Go back to the Map Settings window. Change the Tile Mode to Repeat.

Take a look at the Previews again. You can see the SCE Radial effect of the upper left corner is now repeated on the whole matrix.


We want to go ahead and rotate the effect around the Z-Axis. Go to the Rotate section of the Map Settings window and change Z to 38. You can do this by simply writing 38 in the text box or by moving the slider to the right side.


If you press the Animation button at the right-hand side of the slider, the effect will be rotated continuously. Move the slider again to change the speed.


Have another look at the Previews and you can see how the SCE Radial / Wave effect has changed again.


Congratulations! You have learned how you can repeat and rotate effects.
