      Effect:Neon Diatoms
      Category:Special Effects
      Speed:Fast

      Description: The Neon Diatoms Effect produces interlinked color-diffracted rings.

      The Neon Diatoms Effect produces its own colors and ignores Color 1 and Color 2.

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

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

       
      Options: The Neon Diatoms 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).
      ScaleThis value controls the overall scale of the diatom pattern. Smaller values zoom out and produce tighter and denser patterns. Larger values zoom in and produce larger diatoms.
      PositionThis value controls the overall position of the diatom pattern on the Canvas.
      Ring ComplexityThis value controls the rough number of sides of each diatom and how those sides interact with other sides.
      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 Neon Diatoms Effect with default values:

      Because the Neon Diatom Effect can produce so many different looks, we are just going to show you images without comment. These images are made by varying the Scale and Ring Complexity values. You can see that a huge variation of colorful Effects is possible:
