      Effect:Leopard Fur
      Category:Procedural Sources

      Description: The Leopard Fur Effect lets you create a 2D Leopard Spotted Fur pattern.

      Leopard Fur has its own colors to simulate the proper coloration of Leopard, but you can also override them with the current Color 1 and Color 2.

      The Leopard Fur Effect is time sensitive and can use a Clock or Clock Modifier (available in the Leopard Fur Options) to modify the Effect over time.

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

      Options: The Leopard 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).
      Fur Color:If Use Color 1 and 2 is set to a Red X, then this color is used as the Fur Color.
      Spot Color:If Use Color 1 and 2 is set to a Red X, then this color is used as the Spot Color. Note that the transparency (Alpha) of the Spot Color is used to control the transparency of both the Spot and Fur.
      Use Color 1 and 2:If this is set to a Red X, the Fur and Spot Colors are used for the color. If this is set to a Green Check Mark the Fur and Spot Colors are ignored and Color 1 and Color 2 are used instead.
      Scale:This value sets the scale of the Leopard Fur.
      Distortion:This value sets the amount of distortion between the Fur and the Spot.
      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 Leopard Fur with its default settings:

      In the next image we have turned on the Use Color 1 and 2 Check Mark and set the colors to Red and Yellow:

      Here is the original colors with a much tighter Scale:

      And finally we use a 20 x 20 Noise Texture for Texture 1, and our Arches National Park photo for Texture 2, and again set Use Color 1 and 2:
