      Effect:Colorful Kaleidoscope
      Category:Special Effects
      Speed:Fast

      Description: The Colorful Kaleidoscope Effect produces a semi-symmetrical rippling pattern.

      Note that Colorful Kaleidoscope produces its own colors and ignores Color 1 and Color 2.

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

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

       
      Options: The Colorful Kaleidoscope 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).
      Scale:This sets the overall scale of the Effect. Various values of this can restrict the color allowing for a variety of warped grids.
      Frequency:This value changes the offset and number of itterations of the pattern. This can affect the position of the pattern as well as the number of cells produced.
      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 Colorful Kaleidoscope Effect with default values:

      This image shows the Frequency set to a value lower than the default:

      This image shows another Frequency value:

      Here we show a very low Scale value:

      And here is an image using a much higher Scale value:
