      Effect:Interlocking Rings
      Category:Procedural Sources

      Description: The Interlocking Rings Effect lets you create two interlocked ring patterns where one ring is done in Color 1, and the second ring is done in Color 2.

      If you enable the Fit To Brush Option you will paint with the Interlocking Ring Effect sized to your brush.

      Options: The Interlocking Rings Effect has the following Options Pane:

      Clock:This Effect can change over time. This control lets you select which of the four Clocks to use (Clocks are assigned in the Brush Pane). Any Green Colored Clock is the one currently in use. Tap the reset button and a Pop Up will appear that lets you reset any of the four Clocks to their initial value. Yellow colored clocks are not in use. Note that you can turn Clocks off by tapping a Green Clock turning all of them yellow.
      Clock Modifier:This value is added to the current Clock. You can use this to change where in time this Effect is, relative to the Clock (this allows different Effects to use the same Clock with different offsets).
      X Zoom:This value controls the zoom of the rings in the X (horizontal) axis.
      Y Zoom:This value controls the zoom of the rings in the Y (vertical) axis.
      Ring 1 Offset:This value controls the position of Ring #1 with regards to Ring #2.
      Ring 2 Offset:This value controls the position of Ring #2 with regards to Ring #1.
      Fit To Brush:If set to a Red X the Effect spans the screen such that as you paint you reveal the Effect. When set to a Green Check Mark the Effect is sized to the brush such that as you paint the entire Effect is within the brush itself.
      Output Color 1:By default this is set to REPLACE which means that the set color will be output to Color 1. You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.
      Output Color 2:By default this is set to IGNORE which means that the Color 2 will be ignored (the original Color 2 will be kept). You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.

      Example: The following image shows the Interlocking Rings with its default settings and with Color 1 set to a greenish-blue and Color 2 set to a blue:

      In this next image we have set a smaller zoom to display smaller Interlocking Rings, and modified the Offset of Ring 1 to a different position:

      In this next image we have returned to the Interlocking Rings default settings but used two textures for Color 1 and Color 2. The texture for Color 1 is a 20x20 multi-color noise pattern (generated in the Texture Pane). The texture for Color 2 is our Arches National Park image we have used elsewhere in this manual:

      In this final image we use the previous settings but change Interlocking Rings to use Fit To Brush. We then used the Line Tool to paint the central lines and the Dot Tool to place the individual brushes around the central lines:
