      Effect:Screen Door
      Category:Procedural Sources
      Speed:Fast

      Description: The Screen Door Effect creates a field with holes similar to a screen door. Color 1 is used for the screen color and Color 2 for the space between the screen.

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

       
      Options: The Screen Door Effect has the following Options Pane:

      X Offset:This value changes the position of the pattern in the X (horizontal) direction.
      Y Offset:This value changes the position of the pattern in the Y (vertical) direction.
      Zoom:This value changes the size of the Screen Door pattern. Smaller numbers zoom out, resulting in a smaller pattern. Larger numbers zoom in, resulting in a larger pattern.
      Hole Size:This value sets the size of the hole in the screen door. Low values generate smaller holes, High values generate larger holes.
      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 Screen Door Effect with its default settings and Color 1 set to white and Color 2 set to black:

      In this next image we have zoomed in, creating a bigger view of the hole:

      And here we have zoomed out, creating a smaller view of the hole:

      In our final image, we have set the Hole Size to a high value which creates a larger hole:
