      Effect:Spiral Blobs and Cubes
      Category:Special Effects
      Speed:Fast

      Description: The Spiral Blobs and Cubes Effect produces colorful spirals of either cubes or blobs.

      Spiral Blobs and Cubes produces its own colors and ignores Color 1 and Color 2.

      If you enable the Fit To Brush Option you will paint with the Spiral Blobs and Cubes sized to your brush.

       
      Options: The Spiral Blobs and Cubes Effect has the following Options Pane:

      Blobs (Cubes=off)If this is set to a Green Check Mark then Blobs are used for the shape instead of Cubes. If this is set to a Red X then Cubes (squares) are used for the shape instead of Blobs.
      Color Sequence:This value controls where in the color spectrum the colors begin. This basically sets which blob has which color from the used spectrum.
      Stretch:This value controls the size of one dimension of the Blobs or Cubes. Changing this distorts the shape in that dimension.
      Pull:This value controls how close to the viewer the shapes are when rendered. Low values pull the shapes extremely close to the viewer. Large values push the view far away.
      Horizontal Offset:This value controls where in the X (horizontal) position the pattern is generated from.
      Vertical Offset:This value controls where in the Y (vertical) position the pattern is generated from.
      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 Spiral Blobs and Cubes with the default values:

      This next image shows the defaults with Blobs (Cubes=off) set to a Red X (Cube mode):

      This next image shows the defaults with Pull brought to a low value:

      The next image is the previous image with a very high Stretch value:

      An extremely low Pull combined with a large Horizontal Offset:
